Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their departure from the royal family back in January, and they officially stepped down at the end of March. Since then, the two have uprooted their newly-planted lives in the United Kingdom in search for something better across the pond. They spent some time in British Columbia and recently relocated to Los Angeles, California.
A source close to the duchess said that Meghan had some words about Harry’s character in comparison to the rest of his family — that, combined with the interesting photos posted for Archie’s first birthday, might have hinted that Harry won’t be quick to reconcile with the others.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are supposedly on rocky terms with the royal family
Harry and Meghan made the decision to leave the royal family back in January, though the underlying drama might have started long before that. Once Harry and Meghan were married, rumors surfaced that Meghan and Kate did not have a good relationship. Those rumors were never confirmed, but as time went on, the public learned that Harry and William were not on great terms, either. Harry revealed the news during an interview while he and Meghan were spending time in Southern Africa last fall.
Once the two decided to leave the family, the queen released a statement that she supported Harry and Meghan’s decision to lead a separate life. But things once again appeared to go downhill when the two tried to trademark Sussex Royal.
Meghan reportedly once suggested the two are not on good terms with the family
A source close to the duchess once revealed to Express that Meghan said Harry had the most “loyalty” and “integrity” of any family member. Though it might have had something to do with why they left the family, those words might also greatly explain how Meghan and Harry feel about their relatives at the moment.
To suggest that Harry is more loyal, honest, and moral means Meghan could be suggesting that the other royal family members are lacking those qualities — and that could have a significant impact on the prince ever patching things up with other members of the family.
The royal Instagram accounts each posted photos for Archie’s first birthday, but the images were old — none were more recent than Archie’s christening last July, which also seemed to signal that things still aren’t in the best place — and that Archie hasn’t spent much time with the family since last year. If those are Meghan’s true thoughts about the other royals, then she and Harry might not be willing to make things work with the family any time soon.
Harry supposedly feels some guilt for moving to L.A.
Harry and Meghan recently settled into Los Angeles, though there have been reports that Harry already regrets his decision to move to California — more than 5,000 miles away from his family in the U.K. Those close to the couple have said that Harry feels guilty for having left his family behind, though there is no confirmation that the reports are true.
Harry and Meghan recently celebrated Archie’s first birthday, which can’t help but make us question what the dynamic will be between Archie and his cousins. Archie isn’t close with any family on Meghan’s side besides his grandmother, Doria Ragland, so he will grow up without any other children around unless Meghan, Harry, William, and Kate make a joint effort to allow their kids to spend more time together.
