Is Prince Harry As Much Responsible As Meghan Markle For Their 2020 ‘Megxit?’ Here’s What Royal Experts Suggest

Published 09/28/2022, 3:00 PM EDT

January 8, 2020. The day brought a historic turn of events in the lives of the Royals of Great Britain. It was that day when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle publically announced their decision to step back as seniors of the Royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed they felt misunderstood in the family and hence the big “Megxit” revelation. They would apparently divide their time in North America and the United Kingdom, and become financially independent.

Ever since both the royal prince and the American actress have been the center of many controversies. Notably, Valentine Low was among the first Royal correspondent of The Times to report the allegations against the Royal family bullying Markle. She also swore to represent bare insights of what actually goes on in the royal family in his upcoming book, Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown. And in one extract, she alleged Prince Harry to be “just as complicit” as the Duchess in executing 2020’s Megxit, per the royal expert Daniela Elser.

Prince Harry also played a role in Megxit with his wife Meghan Markle?

Apparently, Elser corroborated Valentine Low’s assertions that Prince Harry had a significant role in upsetting royal employees and generating conflict inside the Royal Household prior to their separation from the family. In one of her articles, Elser wrote Meghan is perhaps not the one to be blamed entirely for the couple’s decision to dismiss their duties to the crown. “We have to admit that the Harry we loved for all those years, the eternally cheeky chappie, was in truth a deeply unhappy man,” the royal servant wrote in the article.

She further extended her doubt whether the royals should feel a little tricked into believing the prince they thought they knew was only a charade. Elser also explained how over all these years, the Royal family had accepted “a series of largely one-dimensional versions of Harry” The author also believes that the reality of a lot more complicated and chaotic version of Prince Harry came out after the events of 20 August 2020.
