Meghan Markle and Prince Harry find themselves entangled in accusations that have deeply affected their closest relationships. The couple, who relocated to the United States with the intention of expanding their personal brand, is facing allegations of causing significant emotional distress to some of their nearest and dearest.
Meghan, who appears unlikely to return to the United Kingdom, may soon confront a wave of criticism for what some perceive as the disruption of their children’s royal upbringing – Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have, with their decision to distance themselves from the royal family, ignited impassioned debates among royal experts and critics alike. Their choice reflects their pursuit of a path independent from the constraints of traditional royal life.
The couple’s highly publicized interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, as well as their subsequent Netflix series, delved into the enduring issues of racism and colonialism within the monarchy. The situation intensified further with the release of Harry’s candid memoir, “Spare,” in which he openly aired his grievances about life within the royal fold.
Considering the tumultuous events of recent years, it’s probable that Harry and Meghan will continue to maintain a considerable distance from royal affairs.
Royal commentator Clive Irving expressed, “Meghan Markle is ‘unlikely’ to return to the UK as she will be accused of ’embarrassing’ the King,” adding that, “The only interactions with the royals will occur when Harry himself returns [to the UK] on necessary family occasions. It’s improbable that we’ll witness Meghan alongside Prince William and Princess Kate.”
Regrettably, this means that Archie and Lilibet won’t have the opportunity to relish the cherished moments of their childhood by playing with their grandfather, King Charles, and their royal cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Having stepped back from their roles as working royals in 2020, Harry and Meghan have effectively made their transition into the world of celebrities. They have established themselves independently from the royal family and no longer rely on its support.
However, in their ongoing struggles with the royal establishment, Harry and Meghan have inadvertently deprived their children of the joy of growing up alongside their royal relatives.
As the couple’s children reside in California with their parents, they have been labeled as some of the most significant casualties of the feud within the royal family. Esther Krakue, a royal commentator and broadcaster, noted, “They don’t really know an entire half of their family, and Meghan doesn’t really have much family to speak of other than her mother, and they’re the ones that are being isolated.”
