Recent developments suggest that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are firmly committed to moving forward with their new lives, leaving behind their former roles within the Royal Family.
Insiders have gone as far as to declare that Prince Harry’s relationship with his family is irreparable.
As the Invictus Games approach and Prince Harry’s Netflix docuseries, “Heart of Invictus,” gains attention, it becomes evident that the couple is increasingly focused on endeavors that are distinct from their royalties.
Meghan Markle has also ignited speculation about the revival of her lifestyle blog, “The Tig,” following her return to social media. She recently launched a new Instagram account, amassing over half a million followers in a short span.
According to an insider close to the couple, their separation from the Royal Family is permanent, and Prince Harry’s ties with his family have effectively dissolved.
The source stated, “They are done with their former lives,” while discussing the Sussexes’ mindset. The insider also revealed that discussions about family matters, particularly concerning the upcoming Invictus Games, are virtually non-existent.
“They’re not talking about family. There’s no expectation that the family’s going to show up or acknowledge it or that anybody wants to see him. It’s over.”
Tensions between Prince Harry, Meghan, and the rest of the Royal Family have escalated over the past year due to the release of several projects that were critical of the institution.
Last December, the couple’s Netflix docuseries, “Harry & Meghan,” offered an intimate look into their relationship, marriage, and grievances within the Royal Family.
However, the most significant bombshell came in the form of Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir, “Spare.” The book delved into alleged conflicts between Princess Kate and Meghan, Prince William and Harry, and was critical of King Charles’s wife, Queen Camilla.
“Spare” became an overnight bestseller, keeping the Sussexes in the spotlight for months, but it also underscored the strains in their relationship with the Royals.
As Prince Harry and Meghan establish their new life in California, they seem determined to distance themselves from the Royal Family.
Nevertheless, it remains uncertain whether they can completely sever their ties, given Prince Harry’s indelible connection to the family he grew up in, and both still holding the titles of Duke and Duchess.
Nonetheless, the couple appears to be exploring new projects that do not revolve around the Royal Family.
One such project is the adaptation of the bestselling book, “Meet Me at the Lake,” into a Netflix feature film. Netflix secured the rights to Carley Fortune’s romantic novel for a reported £3 million, with Prince Harry and Meghan set to produce the movie.
As the Sussexes pursue these new endeavors and reports suggest that Prince William remains deeply upset over the allegations made in “Spare,” any prospects of reconciliation to heal the rift within the Royal Family appear distant at present.
The couple is evidently forging their path forward, navigating a future that is independent of their royal lineage.
