Is This the Real Reason Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Stepping Back From the Royal Family?

by Tracy Finke

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a statement yesterday that they want to retire as “senior members” of the royal family and that they want to work to become financially independent, and it quickly became an important topic around the globe.

“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”, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wrote on their Instagram account last night.

They continued: “It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

In Britain, however, it is widely rumored that there are several other reasons why they have decided to withdraw, the main one would be that Queen Elizabeth II can’t stand the young couple.

Some point out that she does not look at them favorably because they spend too much, deal with the tabloids through lawsuits, and the courts, while Meghan’s rivalry with Kate Middleton can no longer be hidden.

Only the main characters of this story know what the complete truth is, while there is no doubt that everybody will talk about this in the days ahead.

On the other hand, it is widely said that it will be easy for them to cope with the new situation because of the big money they already have.

Prince Harry inherited £ 20 million from his mother Diana and seven million from the Queen Mother. Annually, he and William receive four million pounds each from Elizabeth II, which means he “weighs” over 30 million.

Meghan has about four million dollars in her account because she earned $ 50,000 per episode of the series “Suits,” which she left to marry the Prince. She also earned $ 150,000 in product advertising and $ 100,000 from the blog.

If they decide to leave the royal family altogether, or Harry renounces the throne, they will lose the financial assistance of the Queen but will have to pay the security themselves, which costs a million dollars a year.
