Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
While it is no longer news that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have chosen to quit the royal family, what is news is the acrimony that seems to be rearing its head in the wake of arrangements to finalize the rather startling decision taken by the pair in 2019.
The Duke and Duchess announced rather suddenly last year, their plans to start a new life together in Canada with their son Archie. It was not a popular decision, and as it’s starting to appear, not properly thought out either.
How else would you explain the rather terse and smarmy message they left for the Queen (Harry’s Grandmother 93 year old Queen Elizabeth II) upon finding out that they would have to relinquish the title “royal”? Clearly displeased, the pair is said to have issued a statement indicating that while the Queen has no power to stop them using that appellation overseas, they will oblige.
The rather spiteful missive is quite unnecessary considering the fact that the Queen has promised to review the terms of the arrangement in a year and is still keeping a space open for her grandson in the military should he desire to return to that position. Public commentators have taken the pair to the cleaners with many condemning the statement out rightly.
Prince Harry, currently 6th in line to the throne, and Meghan appear to be quite ready to take on the daunting task of making their own personal money going forward though. Daily Mail UK reports that the couple has made an estimated £750,000.00 for a speaking event and is said to be collaborating with the Queen of Talk, Oprah, on a mental health series.
Suspicion regarding who is responsible for the recent and rather sour turn of events in the royal household falls squarely on Meghan, the Prince’s American wife, as the upheavals appear to have begun shortly after their marriage in May 2018. MochaBeauty wishes the pair a successful life ahead.
