Do Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Have a Secret Wild Side?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be royalty, but when it comes down to it, they are just like us in so many ways. It may seem as if the Duke and Duchess are always on their best behavior, attending fancy parties, intimate dinners, and date nights fit for a king and queen. However, it is hard for anyone, even Meghan and Harry, to keep up a lifestyle like that all the time.

With all of the pressures of royal life and living in the spotlight, chances are, they need to let loose once in a while. There are likely things that they do behind closed doors that they go to great lengths to keep private, and as it turns out, fun parties are just one of them: It was recently revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a bit of a wild side, and we have to say, that it makes us love them even more.

It may sound like every young girl’s dream to grow up, marry a prince, and move into a palace, and this is exactly the way it turned out for Meghan. While she certainly has a life of glitz and glamour, there are some drawbacks that come into play as well. For instance, just about everything that Meghan does is closely watched, criticized, and photographed. With people around the world always looking for something to talk about, sometimes the rumors surely can fly out of control.

Today is #earthday – an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home. The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today. Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including: Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us. A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling. Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals. Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all. Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber. We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too. When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism. Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day. #earthday

While Meghan was no stranger to the camera before meeting Harry, her life certainly was not nearly as high-profile as it is now. She was not dealing with her family drama, and she was able to go out in public without being followed. Since her relationship with Harry began, Meghan’s life has changed so drastically, and everything she does in front of the public has to be absolutely perfect. At times, we have to wonder if the pressure gets to be overwhelming.

Prince Harry has a not-so-secret wild side

For years, Harry was known as the rebel of the royal family. We could always count on him to keep things interesting, and that’s exactly what he did. Who can forget the time Harry was in a physical encounter with a photographer, or his hard-partying ways? Then, there was an incident in Las Vegas in which some pictures that surely sent a wave of shock through the palace made their way to the internet for all to see. Although many may consider these incidents normal parts of a young person’s life, it is not the type of behavior that royals usually engage in.

Do Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a secret wild side?

As it turns out, they do! Just like so many people their age, Meghan and Harry have enjoyed hosting the occasional all-night party while they still lived at Kensington Palace. A former neighbor of theirs spoke glowingly of the extravagant celebrations, saying that they were pretty over-the-top and that the palace has been extremely quiet since the duke and duchess left.

However, it would seem as if their move is for the best. After having welcomed Baby Archie recently, moving to Windsor is the couple’s way of keeping the new royal out of the spotlight, so it has been extremely good for the new family of three. We are glad that Meghan and Harry are able to make the time to relax and have some fun with the busy, demanding schedules that they have.
