The Royal Family announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are stepping down from their senior royals position after they returned from their Canadian getaway over the 2019 – 2020 Christmas holiday.
Royal tensions have been at an all time high since Prince Andrew stepped down from the Royal family after allegations of sex crimes and misconduct in relation to his connections to Jeffrey Epstein.
Prince Harry and his brother Prince William have also been experiencing troubles over the past years. It may be that Prince William is seen as the favorable one due to the controversial actions Prince Harry has been exposed for in his past.
Meghan Markle was interviewed for a documentary in September 2019 where she expressed sadness and an overwhelming sensation when describing the pressure she faces as a part of the Royal family. Some say the last straw for Prince Harry was when he noticed the family Christmas pictures made available to the public, excluded him, his wife and their child.
The Prince and Meghan have been fulfilling Royal duties that remind Prince Harry of his late mother, Princess Diana. That pressure alone could be the reason Prince Harry wants to distance his family away from the constant attention royals face on a daily basis. They said they will concentrate on their charity work and will be financially independent.
