Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shocked the world with their decision to step down as senior members of the Royal family this week.
Over the past couple days the world has been scrambling to understand exactly how and why this separation would occur.
But it may be the reason behind it all has been staring us in the face all this time…

So proud to have taken the Christmas photo for one of my best friends and her family. Here’s the original that was sent out (cropped to fit IG). …and to The Mail, I see your campaign against my friend continues. Nice photoshop of my non-photoshopped image. Now may we all get back to the spirit of Christmas and not the spirit of maliciousness.
Yes, according to a new source the move isn’t about Meghan and Harry’s comfort or personal desires — it’s a parenting decision!
A royal insider explained to Radar Online:
“Meghan has already made a name for herself since marrying into the royal family, but she didn’t realize how big of a responsibility it would be.”
To be a part of the Western world’s most famous continuous monarchy? Pretty big responsibility as it turns out.
And once she had baby Archie Harrison, she knew something had to change — so her son wouldn’t have to grow up in that existence, as the source said:
“She realized that this is not the life she wants to live forever and especially with Archie, it’s not the life she wants him to have.”
What exactly is she trying to protect Master Archie from?
Being a Royal came with a bigger burden of celebrity scrutiny than Meghan had ever experienced as a Hollywood actress. And as obvious as that statement may be, the vitriol toward her was worse than she ever expected:
“Her name has been thrown into the mud. She wants freedom while at the same time being able to use her influence in North America to do things she wants to do. There is nothing wrong with that.”
Ultimately, the source says it’s simple:
“She wants less royal and more Hollywood.”
Will that life be better for Archie? We mean, kids growing up in Hollywood aren’t known to be the most well-adjusted on average either. And the scrutiny is unlikely to die down any time soon.
But at the the end of the day, as parents all we can do is try our best to make the decisions that will be best for our kids, so if they believe this is what’s best for Archie we certainly can’t fault them for making this call.
Do YOU think Archie was the reason for #Megxit??
