According to a new biography written about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family written by authors and Royal experts, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, the former Royal couple, Meghan and Harry were already frustrated and growing more frustrated every day with the way they were "treated" by the Royal family compared to other family members. They told the authors of the book that they felt that they "took a back seat to other Royal family members.

According to the book, this is the real reason that Megxit even happened in the first place. Harry made the announcement to the public in January 2020 that he and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle would be leaving the Royal family and stepping down from their Royal duties. There were a few stipulations they had to abide by for this to happen before it finally did at the end of March 2020. For one thing, they would no longer be taking money from the taxpayers of the UK to live on and would live and work independently. They would leave the UK and split their time between Canada and the USA.

Once the former Royal couple left the UK, they first stayed in Canada for a bit. However, when they left Canada, they went to the US and settled down in Los Angeles, California, where Meghan used to be an actress in Hollywood. They are now living in Tyler Perry's $18 million mansion. Perry let them stay in his mansion because he is good friends with Oprah and Oprah is good friends with Harry and Meghan.

It's not surprising that the couple wanted so badly to leave the Royal family. According to an excerpt from the book that was published in TheTimes, ever since they got married, they have both wanted to live their own lives together and not have to live under the strict rules of the Queen and the Royal family.

The excerpt says, "Since getting married, Harry and Meghan had enjoyed calling their own shots."

Also, a close source told the authors of the new book this, "Harry and Meghan liked being in control of their narrative."

The authors of the book had this to say, "The couple found that agreeing to fold their household into Buckingham Palace, instead of creating their own independent court, had proved a big disappointment to them."

And, although the couples' popularity grew once they got married, they constantly struggled with the feeling that they weren't being supported by anyone in the Royal family.

The book also explained, "Increasingly Harry had grown frustrated that he and Meghan often took a back seat to other family members. When the Sussexes wanted to focus on a project, they were told that a more senior ranking family member, be it Prince William or Prince Charles, had an initiative or tour being announced at the same time — so they would just have to wait."

Although the former Royal couple had hoped they could have resolved some of these issues, they told the authors of the book that they had a problem communicating with Royal officials in the palace.

Once they realized they couldn't effectively resolve their problems with the Royal family, they decided it was best for them, and more importantly, their son, Archie, to step down from their Royal duties and leave the Royal family, going their separate ways together and living a more private life.

They also wanted to do this to be able to provide baby Archie with a more normal childhood. Something he wouldn't have gotten by living under the constant spotlight and strict rules of the Royal family.
