Most of us are aware of the recent news of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping down from their royal horses. They want to pursue a life that is financially independent of the Royal family. On January 08 2020, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan rocked the entire world announcing their decision with a post on their Instagram handle; Sussexroyal. Then came “Megxit” but, who actually made it happen? Was it really the Duchess?. Nope.
In the post they mentioned that they took their decision after months of discussion. The media did not take it very positively. They blamed Meghan Markle for well, basically taking the Prince away from his royal responsibilities. They coined the term “Megxit” referring to their decision and unashamedly blaming the Duchess for the event.
Sources have recently revealed how annoyed and upset prince Harry is about the term “Megxit”. He revealed that it was his decision to step down from their position as senior royals. He admitted that he had been upset for a long time and was actually looking forward to this while promising to continue serving the Queen.
The couple welcomed their first child, baby Archie on 6th May 2019 (…he just turned 1 and is absolutely adorable…). Prince Harry seems to have been even more motivated because of their child. We cannot deny that the press can cause pressure upon the people and the couple just wants a healthier and more private life.
He had also addressed their decision in a private dinner. The Prince addressed things very similar to what his mother Princess Diana had. The stress from always being scrutinised, wanting more privacy and to raise her children in a more normal environment. The death of Princess Diana had obviously negatively impacted her young children, especially Prince Harry who is really open about the scar that would forever remain in his heart.
He only wants to protect his family and live more independently (…give them some fresh air people, they’re humans too...). Meghan Markle was targetted the for negative backlash from the press but they were supported by the Queen and fans (…like me…!!!!). They still continue to travel for humanitarian services across the world. A book about their journey is also scheduled for August 2020.
It was his decision and Meghan completely supported him. Next time you call the event “Megxit” think about how unfair it is and how it negatively impacts them.
