Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shocked the world by turning in their His and Her Royal Highness titles and moving to Canada to live a normal life rather than that of senior Royals.
Everyone involved has cited their son — Archie Harrison’s — safety and wellbeing as the main cause for the move. Security is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s top priority. Now we’re starting to see a glimpse of what life might be like for the guards that guard the Sussexes.
While critics blamed Duchess Meghan for the move, saying she was trying to gain more fame and money for herself, the Sussexes have been very open about their motivations.
Prince Harry has made several comments pointing to the invasiveness of the British media, comparing his wife’s treatment to that of his mother, Princess Diana. Harry lost his mother at a young age when her vehicle crashed while reportedly trying to escape the paparazzi. The Duke said he did not want to see his wife and child go through something similar.
Though peace and safety were the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s top priorities, their move to Canada does not mean they won’t ever work again. And naturally, Hollywood is dying to have Meghan come back to the industry. The Duchess previously starred in _Suits.
Insiders have said Meghan would have a booming career in Tinsel Town if she decided to make a comeback. Though many admitted they had no idea how they would provide security for the Duchess of Sussex if she did.
While Hollywood security seems to be an issue, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have apparently figured out how to keep their family safe in Canada. Sources say the Sussexes have 15 security guards that live in three different houses — some live at home with Harry and Meghan.
The report claims that some of the guards are not particularly happy with their job duties, saying the officers sometimes have to go grocery shopping or pick up takeout meals for the family.
These reports do conflict with other sources who recently shared a supposed inside look of the Sussexes’ new life. Insiders said Harry and Meghan were very happy to be more independent, noting that Meghan was never comfortable being served by the Royal staff.
The Duchess of Sussex is said to happy hiking, doing yoga, and cooking for her family. However, the Duke of Sussex is said to occasionally run to local sandwich shops when Meghan isn’t up to cooking for the night.
