As the one-year mark since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down from the British royal family approached, many people that follow the family, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan, were surprised by the news that came from a friend of the two. Tom Bradby, a journalist and close friend to Prince Harry, revealed much about the couple’s situation to do with their Royal family in how it has progressed or devolved since Megxit as well as some of what Prince Harry has divulged to him about feelings on the situation.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have their own small family and have moved to California following their step down from the royal family in early 2020. This decision came from a place of best interests for their son as well as a wish to step back from the feuding and ongoings of the royal family that can sweep people up quickly and aggressively.
While the family has a lovely home in California, seem to be raising their son well, and have landed some important media deals as well as spoke up on some topics; the couple actually seems to be in turmoil from the issues and discussions with the British royals since their step down from that field.
Tom Bradby recently decided to speak up some about this issue and how the small family is doing in their struggles with the royals as well as their own lives in an interview for a television show which has been openly discussed by some journalists and other sources since. He made some important points about the issue that help to give followers of the royals as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle some clarity on what really is happening behind this decision and the events that have unfolded since.
Bradby discussed that Harry is heartbroken over having to make a decision like that towards his family and step back from the typical roles he was raised in, not to mention having to cut back contact with his own family from this decision. But the journalist also notes that it seems to be felt on both ends, both Harry’s family and the royal family are at a loss from this change and taking it hard.
However, Harry’s friend also mentions that living in the way Meghan and Harry live now seems to be a relief off of their shoulders in comparison to the duties, responsibilities, and expectations that followed them in daily life in the royal family. It’s not painless, but being able to have less of those burdens as well as the ability to focus on their little family seems to be helpful at least some. Bradby goes on to state that he thinks they are generally happy as a small family, just struggling with the stress of where they stand in life and in the royals as anyone would in this situation.
It’s been clear that much of the followers of both Harry and Meghan’s family, as well as the British royals, have tried to overlook this decision and hope for the best of both sides without investing in the hard feelings that may be behind the scenes, which is why much of us weren’t aware of or considering how hard and tense it must be to make such a huge decision for either side.
Another big problem arising from Harry and Meghan’s decision is the logistics behind it. The British royal family is an important position in Britain and has a great deal of politics as well as business aspects to it. This means that making a decision to step out isn’t easy by any means, and the “how” behind it is something most people can’t even fathom to answer right now. Nobody really knows what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can really do to fully step away from the royals or how that would look for the family as a whole, not to mention how the British royals will handle this situation moving forward if it becomes a final and true cut from this idea.
While tensions are high and both sides seem to be at odds as well as upset with the decision Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made to step aside from the royal family around a year ago now, it’s not sure when this will come to a resolution or what it may look like for any side. What we are sure of is that close friends such as Tom Bradby are invested in the wellbeing of the family and there for them in the future. We also know that it’s a tough choice that won’t just go away or happen quickly. It seems the best we can do is to watch and wait while hoping for the best results to occur in the end.
