Headlines are never far away when the British royalty is concerned. It looks like that the wide public and the media never have enough of this famous family, and in recent years, of Harry and Meghan especially.
Ever since the moment they announced they were dating, they caused a stir. Meghan, a former actress and a divorcee, didn’t seem like the perfect fit for a prince according to many, but their love for one another prevailed.
It was reported that the Queen herself accepted Meghan right away and welcomed her into the family.
However, two years after tying the knot, Harry and Meghan decided they had it enough of being working royals so they stepped down from their royal duties. According to some, their initial plan was to leave Britain for just a year, but the Firm didn’t accept that and the Sussexes settled down in the States, where they still reside.
One of the reasons for this major step was the British press.
In the past, Harry himself has spoken openly on the subject of the press and how it affected his late mother’s life. Diana was mercilessly chased by the paparazzi who closely followed her every move. It didn’t only affect her happiness, but pushed her to death, according to many.
Harry certainly didn’t want his wife to go through the same, and the moment he felt Meghan was scrutinized, he stepped up for her the best he could.
Among the rest, Harry and Meghan are known as people who are never afraid to speak their mind, and the all-tell interview with Oprah is the perfect proof of that. They don’t want to sweep things under the rug, unlike the rest of the members of the British royalty.
This is why Harry’s book, which is to be published later this year, causes concerns. Many can’t help but wonder whether he would expose details of what has been going on behind closed doors over the years.
When Harry and Meghan went on a blind date, he was happy to see it was her his friend tried to set him up with.
According to the book Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown by author Valentine Low, Meghan was quick to reveal to the world that she and Harry were a thing. A source allegedly told Low that Meghan once gave Harry a serious ultimatum regarding their relationship. “She was saying, ‘If you don’t put out a statement confirming I’m your girlfriend, I’m going to break up with you.”
Another source claimed Harry was “freaking out, saying, ‘She’s going to dump me.’”
Low’s book further claimed that it was then that Harry contacted Jason Knauf, communications secretary for Prince William, Kate Middleton and Harry himself at the time, and told him to release a statement revealing his relationship with Meghan.
“Harry’s staff knew that Meghan was different from other royal girlfriends. She had her own opinions and would let people know what they were. In the spring of 2017, more than six months before the couple were engaged, she told one of Harry’s advisers: ‘I think we both know I’m going to be one of your bosses soon,’” an excerpt of the book reads.
Despite his efforts to keep himself and his family out of the reach of the public eye and the media, both he and Meghan are constantly under the spotlight.
Now, with the new era for the British monarchy and Harry’s wish to be closer to his family and help his father with his new role, we are likely to see and hear of Harry and Meghan even more in the future.
