Meghan Markle Had ‘Trouble Sleeping’ From Stress While Living in the U.K.

Anyone with anxiety can attest to the fact that it is not a joke. What some people may not know about Meghan Markle is that she is affected by anxiety. Land lately, it seems to have really been getting to her. Meghan has been under extreme stress for quite a while, even before her wedding to Prince Harry. The British tabloids have been relentless; news outlets in both England and the United States have been giving the duchess a hard time for just about every reason possible. Recently, it came as a huge shock when Meghan and Harry announced their decision to resign as senior royals. Although all of the details of their departure have not yet been finalized, there is a lot of speculation regarding their plans. One thing that we do know is that Meghan and Harry have, in the past, been open about their unhappiness with royal life. They are a very private couple, and life in the spotlight is overwhelming for both of them.

Stepping down from their royal duties

News about “Megxit” has been dominating the headlines lately. Everyone wants to know where Meghan and Harry will live, and how they plan to be “financially independent” now that they will no longer be receiving public funding from the Sovereign Grant. Meghan was feeling especially anxious about the stress of living life in front of the world and constantly being criticized. According to Vanity Fair, it is one of the reasons she and Harry decided to step back. As it turns out, the pressure was taking a very negative toll on both Meghan and Harry. It was to the point where Harry felt compelled to release a statement in his wife’s defense. It didn’t seem to make much of a difference, as the media still didn’t back off as the couple had hoped. Even after they announced their resignation, it would appear that they are still in the news on a regular basis.

Much calmer in Canada

Meghan spent years living in Canada while filming the show that allowed her to rise to fame, Suits. It wasn’t too surprising when she and Harry headed there after splitting from the royal family. It has been reported that both of them are doing great, with Fox News reporting that they are extremely happy in their new environment. They feel that they are finally away from the circus that was constantly surrounding them. Not only has it been helpful for the two of them, but for baby Archie as well. Finally, they are able to live the calmer life that they have wanted for years but just weren’t able to have when they were living in the United Kingdom.
