Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Have to Face Queen Elizabeth Over Rumors They Want to Leave the Royal Family?
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have taken a lot of heat in the wake of their shocking interview, in which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex admitted that life in the royal family has not been easy. The revelations have sparked rumors that they are thinking about leaving the royals for good. Nothing official has been confirmed, but royal experts now believe that the couple is ready to face Queen Elizabeth over their rumored exit.
Markle and Prince Harry face exit rumors
There has been a lot of talk about Harry and Markle leaving the royal family following a documentary that aired a few weeks ago. In an interview for the documentary, Markle admitted that she has struggled with adjusting to life as a royal.
The former actress revealed that dealing with constant media coverage has been super stressful. Things only got worse after she gave birth to her first child, Archie Harrison.
While Markle was thriving before she tied the knot with Prince Harry, she confessed that she is now barely surviving behind the scenes.
For his part, Prince Harry opened up about his rumored feud with Prince William. Although he didn’t come out and say they are fighting, the Duke of Sussex admitted that they have experienced ups and downs in recent years.
The bombshell interviews led to intense speculation about Prince Harry and Markle’s future in the royal family — yet royal experts believe they are not going anywhere.
Queen Elizabeth does not want a royal breakup
According to Express, Juliet Rieden, an expert on the royals, believes Queen Elizabeth will fight to keep Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the family. The two have a major role to play in the monarchy and losing them would be a huge blow for the royals.
“Harry and Meghan are huge for them – they have been modernizing forces within the Royal Family,” Rieden shared.
Rieden added that Prince Harry and Markle have attracted a younger audience for the royals and are quickly making their fan base more inclusive. With the couple tearing down traditional boundaries, Her Majesty will likely do everything in her power to convince them to stay.
It is unclear how Queen Elizabeth will accomplish that, especially considering everything Markle and Prince Harry have experienced over the past two years. Unless something changes in the near future, it might be hard convincing them that being a royal is worth the trouble.
Luckily, the Sussexes are about to embark on a lengthy vacation that will hopefully give them some much-needed breathing room.
Prince Harry and Markle go to Hollywood
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex only recently returned from a 10-day tour of South Africa, where they visited several countries in the region and championed various charitable causes.
They are set to continue their royal schedule until later this month when they will fly out to Los Angeles to visit Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland.
The couple is expected to remain in California for several weeks, giving Ragland some quality time with her daughter and grandson. We do not know if the pair will be making any public appearances, but they will not be fulfilling any royal duties during their stay.
Although the trip is expected to be a nice break, Rieden does not believe Prince Harry and Markle will be able to recharge their batteries as much as people think. The two will still be in the spotlight wherever they go, and their first trip to America as a family of three is going to be a big deal no matter how they approach it.
Inside Prince William and Prince Harry’s feud
While Markle is struggling with the British press, Prince Harry’s ongoing feud with Prince William could also be a major factor in their decision to leave the royal family.
Prince William has yet to comment on the rumors, though royal experts believe their feud may have started over a comment about Markle.
The Duke of Cambridge waited a long time before he tied the knot with Kate Middleton, and experts believe he may have told Prince Harry to slow things down before marrying Markle.
There is no way to confirm the theory — outside of official confirmation — but it is clear that something happened between the brothers. We can only hope this doesn’t lead to a royal exit in the near future, and that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle find happiness before it is too late.
