There are emerging reports that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are looking for a second home outside of the United Kingdom. As the Duchess of Sussex is allegedly behind the plan, the former actress may leave her husband behind as she establishes a new home, maybe, in the United States. This may also mean that the Duke of Sussex may become apart from his family, dividing his time as a father and a royal.
In an interview with New Idea, Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan in Their Own Words author Phil Dampier claimed that Prince Harry felt “cornered” when he allowed Meghan and their son, Archie, to move to the U.S. “Harry has always said ‘what Meghan wants Meghan gets’ and so if she wants to spend more time in the U.S., especially with her mother, I’m sure he will go along with it,” he said.
There are speculations that Meghan Markle is eager to live in Los Angeles and be closer to her mom, Doria Ragland. While in the U.S., Prince Harry will travel back and forth to fulfil his royal roles, apart from being a husband and a father.
However, reports have it that this kind of setup may put a strain in the royal couple’s relationship. If Meghan Markle pursues her plan to spend more time in her home country, it will surely make things difficult for Prince Harry. This may also leave him torn between his duty as a family man and a member of the royal family.
Surely, Prince Harry will choose to be with his wife and kid. It will undoubtedly be devastating for him not to see his son for a couple of weeks to perform his duties.
Queen Elizabeth II may also not allow it to happen. She will be seriously concerned if one of her grandsons will think of leaving the country, dumping his royal roles.
So, Express reported that Queen Elizabeth would try to prevent Meghan Markle and Prince Harry from leaving the U.K. due to the importance of their public roles. Royal expert Juliet Rieden also claimed that Her Majesty and other royal family members didn’t want the Sussexes to relocate because of the huge roles they play in the monarchy.
Rieden explained that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are significant part of the royal family for modernizing the realm. They are changing the face of the royals and bringing in a new audience that they haven’t had before.
They also removed the boundaries for those who are interested in their ways. So, it will never be a good idea should Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave their life in the U.K. behind.
