The world shook when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announce they would be stepping down as senior working members of the royal family. Many critics spoke out and called the couple disrespectful, selfish, and worse. Despite all the criticism they’ve received, it seems obvious the couple made the right choice. Their marriage and family life are already benefitting from the higher level of privacy they enjoy in Canada. Prince Harry and Meghan may have just made the best decision of their lives.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle lived a perfect fairytale romance for the first 6 months of their relationship. The couple was introduced by a mutual friend and met for a blind date over drinks. When he was later asked when he knew Meghan was the woman he would marry, Prince Harry said it was the first time they met. The relationship was kept secret for the first 6 months. Both Meghan and Harry enjoyed this private time alone to get to know each other.
Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were shocked by the backlash online and in the media. Neither expected the wave of negativity. In an interview with BBC Meghan Markle spoke out about the negative press attention: “There was a misconception that because I have worked in the entertainment industry that this would be something I would be familiar with,” she said. “But I’ve never been part of tabloid culture. I’ve never been in pop culture to that degree and lived a relatively quiet life.”
Since stepping down as senior working members of the royal family Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have enjoyed much more time alone together. They’ve returned to a level of private life much closer to what they enjoyed before their relationship went public. This has given them more time to spend alone. The couple has been enjoying the freedom to bond with each other and have more privacy as a family. Their main objective in splitting from royal life was to have more quiet time.
Fans have eaten up the warm and affectionate romance between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Many royal couples appear distant and cool in public as they strictly adhere to royal protocols. Prince Harry and Meghan have famously broken from this tradition. The couple has never shied away from holding hands, hugging or even sharing a quick kiss in public. It’s clear from the dreamy way Meghan gazes at Prince Harry that she’s still completely smitten with her husband. They’re certainly a fine example of a happy couple.
A source close to the royal couple says that the pair have been delighted to have so much more time to focus on baby Archie. He’s been their priority from the beginning of their plan to split from royal duties. Raising their family in privacy is a basic right. The media frenzy and often unfair scrutiny of Meghan Markle created an unhealthy climate for the young couple and their baby. The more privacy they are given, the happier they’ll be.
