Most people would probably think that being a member of Britain’s royal family is pretty glamorous, but for Meghan and Prince Harry, it was anything but that. From the time they announced their relationship, it seems that they were hounded relentlessly by the news media.

Everyone began voicing their opinions and jumping to conclusions about the couple, and it got extremely overwhelming. Meghan, in particular, wasn’t used to the massive amounts of attention that she was receiving as the Duchess of Sussex. She and Harry were adamant about having privacy, especially after Archie was born.

According to Express, the couple was very unhappy with royal life, and they knew that they wanted to take a step down.

Meghan and Prince Harry recently completed their last stint in the United Kingdom

Meghan and Prince Harry were recently in the United Kingdom, where they said goodbye to royal life and attended to some final duties.

So, what did they do while there? According to Vanity Fair, they hosted a luncheon for their staff at the Goring Hotel in London, where they were able to thank everyone for their hard work and wish them the best.

That was not all, however, as the couple kept extremely busy as Meghan attended meetings for two of the organizations that she is a patron of. She also visited students in east London for International Women’s Day, and she and Prince Harry attended the Endeavour Fund Awards at Mansion House in London.

It was at the Mountbatten Festival of Music that Harry wore his royal uniform signifying his rank as Captain General of the Royal Marines. And, finally, they carried out their last royal duty when they attended the queen’s Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey.

Did Meghan and Prince Harry impress the queen?

Pleasing the queen is extremely important, yet a commentator says that Meghan and Prince Harry didn’t exactly do this. Express reports that it actually had to do with Baby Archie, or more specifically, the lack of his presence.

Apparently, her majesty and some of the other royals were pretty upset that they didn’t get to see him and haven’t spent much time with the toddler at all. The royal commentator says that the queen would have been delighted to spend some time with her great-grandson before the Sussex family moved so far away, and was left feeling pretty sad that he wasn’t there.

“Since [Prince Philip] is 99 in June it would have been a charming gesture if Harry and Meghan had brought Archie to see him and the Queen, who, after all, is 94 in April,” said royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams.
