While the Royal family has expressed that they have no ill will toward Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they stepped down from their titles, it doesn’t mean that it’s water under the (London) bridge for Harry. Since Queen Elizabeth II has requested that Harry and Meghan return to the UK briefly to manage some official business, PopCulture revealed that Harry is still upset at his family for the way they treated Meghan. Looks like they treated her more poorly than they had let on.
A source told In Touch Weekly that Harry “still holds a grudge against the royals” because “he’s angry about the way they treated Meghan differently from the rest of the family and accused them of not doing enough to protect her.”
“So, I wouldn’t say he’s exactly jumping for joy at the prospect of seeing them,” the insider added in regards to returning to the UK, however, the Queen “is hoping they’ll put their differences aside and unite for the day.”
Meghan and Harry officially announced that they’d step down from their royal titles on Wednesday January 8th, 2020. They announced it over the Sussex Royals official Instagram page. Since then, they’ve been planning to live in Canada and have also been spotted looking for an LA home.
The source added that Meghan is loving life away from royalty. “Gone are the days where she had to stick to the royal dress code. She’s much more comfortable wearing casual clothes — flats, jeans and sweaters,” the source said.
“[Meghan] hated having to be driven and couldn’t wait to get behind the wheel in Canada,” the source explained. “She’s relieved to finally have some freedom in her life — to do whatever she wants without the royals watching her every move. She’s already leading a normal life again — driving again, doing the grocery shopping, running errands and that kind of thing.”
In addition to normalcy, Meghan also wants to return to acting. She recently struck up a voiceover deal with Disney.
Additionally she’s looking for representation. Meghan will have to put that all on pause when she returns with Harry to the UK.
Harry isn’t the only one who will be uncomfortable during the family. A separate source revealed to In Touch Weekly that brothers Harry and William are still on bad terms. The source claims that it is “unlikely they’ll [Harry and William] ever be close again,” and that they “still don’t get on. There’s 100 percent sibling rivalry between them.”
