The Real Reason Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Reportedly Still Working During Their Holiday Break
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had a year full of ups and downs. The couple had some incredible highlights, such as taking a charitable tour of Southern Africa and welcoming their first child, Archie. But they’ve also seen some lows, such as the constant rumors surrounding Meghan, and the couple’s lawsuit with the tabloids. Now, the two are reportedly taking some time off to spend the holidays with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. But here’s why they might actually still be working.
Meghan and Harry are supposedly taking a much-needed work break
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced last month that they would not be spending the holidays with the royal family. Instead, the two were planning to take a break from their royal duties and spend the holidays with Meghan’s mother. Meghan has been at the center of many rumors this year and has had a tough time building her relationship with the public. Now, she and Harry are in the midst of a lawsuit with three major British tabloids. Harry also recently admitted that his relationship with his brother has suffered a bit over the past year. Needless to say, they could use a vacation.
The duke and duchess are reportedly somewhere in the United States
When Meghan and Harry announced that they would not be spending Christmas in Sandringham with the queen (and instead with Doria), it was presumed that they would be heading to the United States. However, the two never specified where they would be going for security reasons. The paparazzi gathered outside of Doria’s home, but it’s been made clear that Meghan, Harry and Archie are not staying there. There have been reports that they are somewhere in California, though nothing has been confirmed. Wherever they are, it’s clear that the Sussexes do not want to be discovered.
Meghan and Harry might still be working to build an international charity
Though they’re supposed to be taking time off, some royal sources believe Meghan and Harry are actually still working in the U.S. Meghan has reportedly always had an interest in creating an international charity, and now that she and Harry have some time to spend in the States, it’s suspected that Meghan is working hard to build her connections in the area while she and Harry are over there. This way, the two can pave the way for a charity that benefits both the U.S. and the United Kingdom.
The couple will likely return to their royal duties after the holidays
It’s assumed that the Sussexes will return to their royal duties shortly after the New Year. And if Meghan actually is making connections while she’s in the U.S., then it’s possible their charity work will expand even more in 2020. There have been rumors that Harry and Meghan have considered leaving the royal family, though those don’t appear to have any truth to them. However, after taking so much time off and living a life of anonymity, they could realize that they love the peace and quiet of not being associated with the royals. While we expect the two to continue business as usual in the new year, anything can happen.
