Meghan and Prince Harry are no longer serving members of the Royal Family after their unprecedented decision to “step back”. Now living in Montecito, California, the couple are making waves of their own with multi-million-pound deals in place with the likes of Netflix and Spotify. Harry is believed to be preparing a return visit to the UK so he can attend Prince Philip’s funeral, as heavily pregnant Meghan stays in the US on medical advice.
The Sussexes’ decision to give up their royal duties is still the subject of extensive debate.
And although the couple stressed that it was very much a joint decision in their jaw-dropping interview with Oprah Winfrey last month, royal author Ashley Pearson was adamant that Meghan was the driving force behind the move.
Ms Pearson explained: “She had no idea how unglamorous it really is to be a royal and, when she found out she would be a civil servant in a tiara, she was like, ‘no way.’”
