Harry and Meghan wed back in May 2018

Things with Harry and Meghan moved very quickly. The couple first met in 2016, and they only dated for about a year and a half before Harry proposed. After getting engaged in November 2017, the two planned a wedding in six months and were married in May 2018. They had spoken about wanting to start a family soon after they wed, but nobody could have predicted that Meghan would get pregnant within just two months. In October 2018, they announced Meghan would have a baby this spring. But with so much going on for the two, there have also been a ton of royal rumors happening on the side.

Since the wedding, Meghan has been at the center of royal feuds, staff problems, and tension in the royal family — according to claims

Ever since Meghan and Harry wed, Meghan has been at the center of some major royal issues. First, there were rumors that Meghan and Kate were on bad terms; someone leaked that Meghan supposedly made Kate cry at a dress fitting for Princess Charlotte. Then, people noticed that Meghan and Harry’s staff were quitting at a higher-than-usual rate, prompting rumors that Meghan wasn’t treating them well. And supposedly, people in the royal family were becoming frustrated with the behavior of Meghan and Kate, plus the rumors themselves, which meant that nearly everyone was on edge.

While all of the rumors probably aren’t true, it has undoubtedly been frustrating for Meghan and Harry to deal with

There is a strong possibility that many of the rumors coming from “sources” close to the family are entirely false. However, even if things are fine and dandy in the family, there is still constant frustration over the lies being told about the Duchess of Sussex. And there is no doubt it has been a topic of conversation for Meghan and Harry. While the two seem to be very in love, one can only handle so much criticism before it starts to cause a problem. It’s feasible to believe that the constant put-downs regarding Meghan have caused tension in their own way, although that’s not to say Meghan and Harry are crumbling because of it.

Harry and Meghan are focusing on their baby right now, which will hopefully bring some reprieve from the stress

Although the rumors would be a lot for anyone to handle, Meghan and Harry do have something incredible to look forward to: A new baby. The couple will welcome their first child in only a few weeks, and that will definitely give them a distraction from all of these rumors. People may be apprehensive of Meghan because she’s new to the family, but hopefully in time, she will grow on the public and people will respect her in the same way they respect Duchess Kate.
