I would be lying if I said I hadn’t read all the articles published about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their plan to step back as senior royals. It was a major shock to the royal family to say the least and quite the tabloid fodder as well.
I’ve always had an eye on the royal family but I kept an even a closer eye after Meghan married Harry. It was horrible to watch though as the newspapers in England tired of reporting on the good that could come from their marriage and began a witch hunt on her character. The articles becoming more and more ridiculous by the day and far worse when she was pregnant.
I have no doubt that there was tension in the royal family. What family with that pressure on their shoulders day in and day out doesn’t have spats? Not to mention they are British!!! They come from a long line of people that “toe the line”, “keep calm” in the face of it all and by all means don’t talk about it!! (I don’t agree with this logic but it’s not my family)
So to finally have Harry stand up and say enough and choose his wife and son over the crown is not surprising. He lost his mom way too early in life and he is not about to lose the two most important people in his life now. I’m sure there is more that we don’t know and I’m sure we have heard some truths that we think are lies.
Whatever the case may be I wish the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a future that is of their choosing. If there is split in the family I pray for restoration and above all else may happiness be found for them all.
