Meghan Markle Leaving The UK? Living Under William And Kate’s Shadow Is Reportedly Too Much For The Duchess

Meghan Markle has faced a lot of different rumors since becoming a member of the royal family, but few saw this one coming. Inside sources are claiming that the former actress wants to move back to the United States so that she can escape living under the shadow of her new in-laws, Prince William and Kate Middleton. What are the chances that Markle can convince Harry to leave his family behind and start fresh overseas?

Markle set to leave the UK

Rob Shuter, an expert in all things related to the royal family, claims that Markle is sick and tired of living under William and Kate’s shadow. According to Express, Shuter says that inside sources suggested that Meghan Markle is looking to relocate her family to the United States so that she does not have to keep playing second fiddle to her in-laws.

The rumors come months after Markle and Harry moved out of Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage, which is on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have not said anything about moving to the United States. They are, however, reportedly planning a tour of the country at some point in the near future, though details of their trip have not been announced.

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

Markle, of course, has spent a long time in the United States and her mother, Doria Ragland, still lives in California. There is no telling where they would move if they decided to relocate to America, but chances are it would not be far from Markle’s mother.

Inside Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s feud

Prior to the moving rumors, Markle and Middleton were believed to have been engaged in a serious feud dating all the way back to her wedding with Prince Harry. Experts, however, have disputed the rumors and claim that the real beef is between Harry and Prince William.

When Harry first started dating Markle, William allegedly told him to take things slowly, which did not go over well. The brothers reportedly grew distant and have yet to make amends.

Shortly after they tied the knot in 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved into Kensington Palace. William and Middleton were virtually their next door neighbors, which could explain why the pair wanted to move out this past year.

To add even more fuel to the fire, Harry and William recently confirmed the news that they are splitting their households into two separate parts. Each family will have their own staff and agendas, signaling an end to the so-called “Fab Four” as we know it.

Queen Elizabeth’s role in Harry and William’s feud

As if Harry and William’s feud wasn’t bad enough, inside sources now claim that Queen Elizabeth may have started it all. Back in 2006, Her Majesty reportedly warned William and Harry about rushing into marriage.

Queen Elizabeth was apparently tired of dealing with divorces in the royal family and wanted the boys to make sure things would last before they exchanged vows. William reportedly remembered this advice and felt the need to tell Harry.

The royal family has never admitted that anything is amiss between Harry and William, and they likely never will. But there have been signs that the households are still not together.

Shortly after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first baby, William and Middleton admitted that they still hadn’t seen the baby. They also had no idea with Harry and Markle were going to name the boy, which suggests a lack of communication within the family.

Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle move to the U.S.?

If the rumors of a feud are true, it is possible that Harry and Markle leave the U.K. to start fresh in the U.S. That said, the move would be a huge embarrassment for the royal family, who will likely do everything in their power to stop it from happening.

Today The Duke of Sussex visited the Royal Hospital Chelsea for the Founder’s Day Parade, an annual event celebrating the founding of the veterans hospital in 1681 by King Charles II. The Founder’s Day Parade is a day to celebrate ‘The Chelsea Pensioners’, the name for those veterans who live there, and an important reminder of the great debt we owe all whom have served their nation. More than 300 years on from its founding, @royalhospitalchelsea continues to provide exceptional care to soldiers in retirement. Today’s visit also coincides with the 75th anniversary of D-Day. It was especially poignant for The Duke, who served in the British Army for ten years, to visit with and honour six veterans of the Normandy Landing living at the hospital. In his speech today His Royal Highness shared these words with the Chelsea Pensioners: Don’t ever underestimate the joy that you bring to everyone you meet. You represent something really quite special, you are special, and society will always recognise that. That is an important part of your legacy….It’s a community that focuses on supporting each other with kindness, respect and compassion, as well as reaching out to serve the wider community….On this 75th Anniversary of D-Day, I can comfortably speak for everyone when I say we are honoured to be in the presence of six Normandy Landing veterans. Over 300 British Army Veterans live @royalhospitalchelsea – veterans who fought in the Second World War, and other conflicts including Korea, Malaya, Borneo, Northern Ireland, South Atlantic and the first Gulf War. Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and other members of The Royal Family have joined events in the UK and France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are proud to support serving and former members of the Armed Forces. Positive communities and the @royalhospitalchelsea model of care, is critical to help veterans both young and old to maintain positive mental health and wellbeing. Thank you for your service, and for the sacrifices you and your families have made. #DDay75

There is also the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just renovated Frogmore Cottage and seem more than content living outside of the reach of Kensington Palace. That could change as more time passes, but for now, a drastic move seems a bit of a stretch for the couple.
