Prince Charles and Prince William Have Been ‘Reaching Out’ to ‘Vulnerable’ Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Prince Charles and Prince William are reportedly growing even more worried about Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hoped to live a quieter life in Canada after stepping down as senior members of the royal family, but the media has proven just as invasive across the pond. Things have gotten arguably worse without the royal family’s protection, which has prompted Prince Charles and Prince William to reach out with love and support.

Harry and Meghan have allegedly found it more difficult dealing with the media in Canada without the protection of the royal family. Their decision to step down has made the situation even worse, as the paparazzi are looking for every opportunity to catch the couple in public.
According to Express, Charles and William have grown very concerned about Harry and Meghan’s well-being and have reached out in a show of support.
A source claims that Prince Charles and Prince William have told the Sussexes that they are welcome to return to the U.K. and will not be forced to take on any royal responsibilities. They are also preparing for the worst and are setting up a plan to get Harry and Meghan back if things turn south quickly.
Harry and Meghan announced their plan to away from the royal family earlier this month. As part of their new deal, the couple plans on splitting their time between the U.K. and Canada, though there has been some doubt about them ever returning to the U.K.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to be harassed by the media
One reason Harry and Meghan decided to step down was to live a quieter life outside of the public eye. While they enjoyed a quieter life in Canada over the holidays, things have reached a tipping point since their announcement.
Harry and Meghan, for example, issued a statement warning the media against intruding on their private lives after the Duke of Sussex reunited with his family in Canada last week. Before the announcement, cameras caught Meghan hiding behind a row of bushes while she walked her son, Archie Harrison, and their two pets.
In light of the situation, palace courtiers say that the royal family is worried about Harry and Meghan’s safety. Although they don’t expect the couple to return to the U.K. in the near future, they are making plans in the event that their stay in Canada turns bad.
“The palace is very worried about the Sussexes, because they are vulnerable outside the embrace of the family,” the insider shared. “They are making contingency plans in case the Sussexes suddenly turn round and say: ‘Can we come back under your wing?’
The insider added that the plans are for the future and that Prince Charles and Prince William are not setting up a timeline. They just believe that Prince Harry and Meghan’s situation is very fragile and could get out of control quickly.
A few weeks ago, Harry and Meghan announced that they are no longer going to be senior members of the royal family. Aside from living part of the year in Canada, they revealed that they want to become financially independent from the crown.
Prince Harry met with Prince Charles, Prince William, and Queen Elizabeth in the days following his stunning announcement. Following the meetings, the royals revealed that Harry and Meghan will no longer be using their HRH titles.
The couple also plans to pay back the money that was used to renovate Frogmore Cottage, which was around $2.5 million.
It is unclear how Meghan and Harry plan on funding their yearly endeavors, but they certainly have a lot of options to explore.
Is Canada better for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?
If what the sources say is true, then moving to Canada might not be in the best interest of Meghan and Harry. Although Meghan lived in Toronto while filming Suits, it is a completely different ball game now that she is a member of the royal family.
The biggest issue with relocating to Canada is the media. The press is Canada enjoys more freedom of expression than their British counterparts, which could create a lot of problems for the couple down the road.
If they do get tired of living in Canada, sources say the royals will welcome them back with open arms.
Prince Charles has not commented on Prince Harry and Meghan’s decision.
