Lately Meghan Markle has received a lot of flak for leading Prince Harry astray from his royal ties. However, Markle isn’t fully to blame. Not only is Prince Harry a grown adult who can be held accountable for his own decisions, but according to Perez Hilton reported that Prince Harry has been growing tired of the royal lifestyle for quite some time now. Prince Harry has also been longing to part ties with his royal title and do meaningful humanitarian work.
Princess Diana’s former butler, Paul Burrell, revealed to People that Prince Harry takes after his mother and will do just fine without the help of the Royals.
“Harry’s been unhappy in the royal family for years,” Burrell shared to the outlet. “I doubt he’ll miss being a royal. Yes, he was born a prince, but his long-term ambition is to be known as a humanitarian, like his mother.”
The decision to leave the Royal lifestyle behind was not rashly made. Markle and Prince Harry had mulled the idea over for 8 months.
They officially announced their decision on the Sussex Instagram page. They explained that they’ll be splitting their time between North America and England and mostly made the decision to give their son Archie the best life possible. The Royal Family has taken the news surprisingly well. They explained that they want nothing for the best for the couple. Markle’s family, however, responded more viciously. Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father, accused the couple of tarnishing the Royal Family.
While Prince Harry may have been looking forward to stepping down, he expressed remorse during a speech.
“I also know you’ve come to know me well enough over all these years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do. And she does, and she’s the same woman I fell in love with. We both do everything we can to fly the flag and carry out our roles for this country with pride. Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited, we were hopeful, and we were here to serve,” Prince Harry stated.
“For those reasons, it brings me great sadness that it has come to this. The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option. What I want to make clear is we’re not walking away, and we certainly aren’t walking away from you,” he concluded.
