People have quite hoped that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would live happily in Canada, and they are.
Ever since they departed from their royal duty, the couple has now begun with their new chapter in their lives. Now being with other people or engagements are casual or even unannounced.
They can hoke around the woods near their home with their 9-month-old son and dog. Those rules and regulations are farther away from them.
One friend of them told People that “This decision [to leave] had been weighing on them for a long time, and they are relieved to have it done. A weight has been lifted off their shoulders.”
Although things are not as perfect as it seems, this new life, they have also had a price.
There were series of intense discussions with Queen Elizabeth, the grandmother and their HRH Royal Highness titles are not allowed to be used by the couple anymore.
Harry needed to let go of his role being the youth ambassador to the Commonwealth. He was also stripped of his military appointments. Prince Harry has been serving the British Army for ten years.
According to the palace insider, “The military was a part of his upbringing and his life. He brought a lot to those guys and understood things. It is sad.”
Aside from all these, he also left behind his family and some of his close friends. The palace continued. The couple ultimately negotiated, “almost everything they asked for.” Another source said that Prince Harry didn’t care about the stripping of the titles; it didn’t interest him or never has at all.
As for Meghan, she is keeping a low profile while things are getting settled. She has a close circle around her. They are currently staying now in a $14 million property in the scenic Vancouver Island in Canada.
A friend mentioned, “They both love to be outside and have been loving it there. When they’re not doing yoga or eating in, Harry will pick up sandwiches at a local spot, and Meghan walks her beloved rescue beagle Guy and the couple’s adopted Labrador.”
They are enjoying their quiet life. They are homebodies, according to their friend.
Aside from that, they are currently founding their own charity foundation.
A source also said that it would take a lot of time and planning, “These plans take a lot of time, and staff is putting in the legwork to prepare it properly and make sure it delivers on the expectations and the couple’s ambitions.” There will be a lot happening this year for Prince Harry and Meghan, and it will be exciting for their family.
The couple is planning to head to California for the summer and is also scouting for homes in Los Angeles. The pop icon, Madonna, even offered to take up her residence in New York.
She shared on her Instagram a video and said, “Hey, Harry, don’t run off to Canada. It’s so boring there. I’ll let them sublet my apartment on Central Park West.”
She then added that her unit has the best view of Manhattan.
