Everyone has been up and arms following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's historic decision to break away from the Royal Family in order to become financially independent in order to give their son a normal life.

The couple has announced their intentions to step down as "senior members" of the palace and will instead focus their energy on charity work. They intend to split their time between the UK and North America, but have promised to continue to collaborate with Queen Elizabeth in this process.

The Scapegoat

It didn't take long before critics began pointing fingers, most of them aimed squarely at the Suits actor. Some blamed Meghan for the decision to split, saying that she had put pressure on Harry to leave the palace. Theories spread online indicating the Duchess was narcissistic and searching for fame and money.

Supporters of the couple jumped to their defense, pointing out that Prince Harry has always been critical of the British press and had warned them many times to leave his family alone.

Proof On Video?

Theories that Prince Harry wanted to protect his family from the British Royal press may not be too far off base. Video has circulated across social media of the Duke of Sussex opening up about the loss of his mother at an early age. In the video, Harry informs a reporter that he will not be harassed into participating in a system that he believes "killed my mother."

Harry's mother, Princess Diana, lost her life in a car accident in Paris while reportedly trying to escape the paparazzi.

Support From Across The Pond

Now a United States politician has offered words of support to Prince Harry and Duchess Megan. Former Democratic Governor of Vermont Howard Dean took to Twitter to insist this entire situation is a non-story.

The governor rebuked the idea that this separation would be considered to be a "crisis," calling this a "manufactured" issue and calling on the media to leave Harry and Meghan alone. In his Tweet, the politician blamed racist UK policies and a toxic media for driving the couple out.

There Is A Precedent

An upcoming report in People Magazine promises to dive into the reasons for Harry and Meghan's emancipation. Sources have revealed that the young couple had been thinking about their future together for quite sometime before the birth of their young son, Archie.

Harry and Meghan's announcement post on Instagram hinted that their decision was made for the son, as did Queen Elizabeth's official response. The Queen informed the public that a recent conference call was held to discuss her grandson's future.
