Everybody knows that the royal family is full of surprises, but even the most devoted fans didn’t see Megxit coming.
So many people were shocked when Prince Harry And Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, announced over a year ago that they were stepping down from their royal duties, and even more so when they revealed they were leaving the UK altogether. For a while, things were very much up in the air and no one knew exactly what would happen next for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
After spending some time in Canada, they finally settled in LA, where they have lived ever since. The main reason the couple stepped away from their responsibilities was their desire to live a peaceful life for themselves and their young son Archie Harrison.
After a series of ups and downs, including a podcast and an explosive revealing interview with media mogul Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry And Meghan Markle have been experiencing some tension with other family members. Not only have they voiced their dissatisfaction with royal life, but the Duke and Duchess also say they have “lost nothing” since Megxit.
From the start, it was clear that Meghan Markle was having a little trouble with royal life. Even Prince Harry, who has been in the spotlight since birth and has never known a life any other way, has in the past expressed his discontent at being under so much scrutiny. Shortly after their marriage, the couple left London for Windsor, hoping for a little more peace and quiet. They didn’t find what they were looking for, and soon announced to the world their decision to leave the royal life, which quickly became known as ‘Megxit’.
There were so many mixed feelings about the situation and, according to Los Angeles Magazine, not even Queen Elizabeth could have foreseen this happening.
