Meghan Markle recalls EXACT moment she and Prince Harry chose to leave UK

4 mins read

The Duchess of Sussex told how before the couple’s exit from the Firm all-together, they were keen to carry on their royal roles but leave Britain and be relocated to another country in the Commonwealth, like Canada, New Zealand, or South Africa. She told magazine The Cut that she and Prince Harry were keen to leave the UK because abusive press coverage was affecting her mental health and the Sussexes’ very existence was “upsetting the dynamic of the hierarchy”.

Meghan, 41, told how the Sussexes suggested to the monarchy that they no longer be taxpayer-funded and, instead, be allowed to work and earn their own money on behalf of the Firm.

She said: “Then maybe all the noise would stop.

“Anything to just … because just by existing, we were upsetting the dynamic of the hierarchy.


“So we go, ‘Okay, fine, let’s get out of here. Happy to’. ”

But Meghan said this plan was rejected because what they were asking for wasn’t “reinventing the wheel” .

The duchess told journalist Alisson P. Davis: “That, for whatever reason, is not something that we were allowed to do, even though several other members of the family do that exact thing.”
