It is a well-known fact that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle don’t share a very good relationship with the Royal family. They had a fallout in 2020 when they gave away their titles of senior royals. In a bid to become financially independent, Harry and Meghan made a move to the USA where they currently live with their two children, namely Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. 

However, things are expected to change following the demise of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch and second-longest monarch of a sovereign country, Queen Elizabeth II. As an heir to Her Majesty, King Charles III has ascended the throne. With King Charles III as the new monarch, the dynamics of the royal family are expected to turn upside down.

    I believe they have the opportunity to change things as working royals. I think they’d be happy in the UK. Yet I believe they should follow their hearts.
