The official date of ‘Megxit’ is rapidly closing in on the Sussexes and the monarchy, but Meghan and Harry have already been living in Canada for quite some time. The couple have been staying at a mansion in Vancouver, hiding away from prying eyes.
While the couple are seemingly stepping away from royal duties in order to carve out a new life for themselves away from British paparazzi and the strict rules of the monarchy, sources have said Prince Harry is missing parts of his old life in the U.K.
A source told Us Weekly, “He misses nights out with his boys, polo matches and rugby, and he’s really been craving a decent pint. He had to put his wife first, end of story. Even if it’s left him feeling a bit isolated.”
But, is putting Meghan first making Harry unhappy? Many have wondered if the whole idea of stepping away was her decision, rather than mutual. However, we can never truly know.
It’s also been reported that Harry feels terrible for hurting the Queen, as he very much cares about his grandmother.
The source told Us Weekly, “He feels terrible about hurting his grandmother, whom he adores.” While it was always inevitable that Harry stepping down from royal duties would hurt the Queen, it appears that the most hurtful thing to her is Harry and Meghan moving so far away with Archie.
Another source explained, “The queen is heartbroken over the thought of not getting to see her great-grandson. The queen would love to have a relationship with Archie, but it’s looking unlikely that will ever happen.”
It’s unfortunate that stepping down as senior royals means the couple also have to move to the other side of the world. Harry will now be living away from his family and everything he has ever known.
The source said the Queen’s, “worst fear is that she may never see Archie again.” It’s a sad turn of events that have occurred in the last few months, events that seem to be splitting Harry from his family whether he’s doing it intentionally or not.
It was reported by The Sun that Harry had a light lunch and tea with the Queen recently in a bid to hash things out and clear the air. The Queen sweetly told him he would “always be welcomed back.”
It’s clear from this sentiment that the Queen is hoping Harry and Meghan’s move to Canada won’t mean a division in the family forever.
The Us Weekly source concluded, “She’s trying to stay optimistic about this situation. She would never stoop to casting any aspersions on Meghan’s character – even after everything that’s happened.”
It appears as if the Queen has learned from past mistakes, wanting to heal rifts right away rather than allowing things to fester under the guise of tradition.
