Meghan Markle‘s entry into the royal family was indeed a significant event, but her and Prince Harry‘s “Megxit,” was equally controversial. In the past, the Duke discovered an unsettling truth. Prince William’s office had affixed his name to a statement without his knowledge or consent. More so, this ultimately marked the beginning of their departure from the royal family. This process was far from a walk in the park for the Duke of Sussex, as it resulted in the loss of his patronages.

For Prince William and Kate Middleton, the royal exit was no picnic either. Their personal lives and marriage bore the brunt of the fallout.

It meant bidding farewell to their royal duties, no more sovereign grants, and saying goodbye to security funds, among other things. However, as the royal duties reshuffled, Prince William and Middleton found themselves bearing the brunt. It had a “huge impact” on them and loaded them up with an “extra workload,” as reported by a source of the Mirror.
