It’s been more than a year since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry drew a line on their roles within the monarchy, to enjoy a new peaceful daily life in Los Angeles. An absence that is far from saddening the Buckingham Palace, relieved to no longer have to satisfy the desires of the Sussex.
Has the Crown found a form of serenity since the departure of the Sussexes? A year ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to slam the door of the monarchy, exhausted by the constant harassment of the British tabloids and the lack of support from the royal family. Since then, the couple has built a new life in Montecito, on the other side of the Atlantic, where they enjoy a peaceful daily life, and especially their newfound freedom. After several months of silence, Meghan and Harry had crossed the red line of the Crown, revealing the backstage of their years
spent at the Palace. Racism, suicidal desires, constant pressure … The couple from Sussex had emptied their bag as never before.
Shaken by the revelations of the royal couple, the Palace now sees them as real pariahs. Worse, their absence is experienced as a relief by most members of the Crown, who appreciate the newfound calm. “One of the main problems with Harry and Meghan when they were still working for the royal family is their inability to understand how things work, and it’s much easier to work without hearing them complain that they can’t do what they want. The atmosphere is much calmer,” a source told The Mirror.
After a year’s absence, Prince Harry recently returned to the United Kingdom, for the funeral of Prince Philip. If he based a lot of hope in this trip without his wife, the Duke of Sussex has hit a wall. Deeply hurt by the words of his son, Prince Charles did not facilitate the dialogue, he who took the powder just after the funeral to go to his residence in Wales. Helped by Kate Middleton, Prince Harry was able to exchange with his brother, without restoring the strong ties that united them in the past. Stressed at the idea of leaving his pregnant wife alone and disappointed by this reunion, Meghan Markle’s husband returned to Los Angeles before the 95th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.
