Over the last few months, Meghan and Harry have been adjusting to life as new parents and have shocked, not only Buckingham Palace but everyone else around the world as well with their recent confession!
The Shocking News
It came as breaking news today that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have decided to step down from the Royal family, and aim to build a life for themselves, independently. Taking to their social media account they wrote, “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen”! Say what?
Continuing they stated that they “plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America”. So let’s take a look at all the reasons they have reached this decision.
Looking for help
Considering we’ve seen very little of the couple with their baby, it’s hard to say how well they’re coping as parents. We can only assume they’ve gotten a handle on things, although there have undoubtedly been times when they’ve felt overwhelmed.
It’s in those moments that they’ve probably wished there was someone around to help them. While they likely have nannies and other staff to serve that purpose, it’s not quite the same when the person isn’t family.
A new home
Archie’s birth came at a somewhat stressful time in Harry and Meghan’s lives. Weeks before he arrived, the couple moved into their new digs in Windsor. They set themselves up in Frogmore Cottage, a building that was remodeled from staff living quarters into a family home.
Considering the building wasn’t suitable for the pair in its original condition, it had to undergo millions of dollars worth of renovation. That was the kind of added stress the duo didn’t need at such a pivotal moment in their lives. Thankfully, things have since settled down and allowed the couple to raise their son in peace.
