Are Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Living 'Hypocritical' Lives In The US?

It seemed fairytale, almost. American actress (and divorcee, for that matter) meets British prince. They fall in love, get married, and live happily ever after. And it could have happened for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, but for the allegations put forth by the duo, about the kind of treatment they received from the Royal Family and the British media.

Ostensibly, to protect their mental wellbeing and protect the future of their children, the Sussex Royals stepped down.

But have they been just a little hypocritical about it? Let's find out...

The Very Public Stepback

2020's royal announcement, that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping away from their royal duties and title seemed to have come out of nowhere for many.

The official statement was crisp and concise and spoke about how the couple wanted to give their son, Archie, a safe, secure, and less invasive life.

His biggest fear, as he later spoke about the same to the media, was history repeating itself, referring to his mother, Princess Diana's untimely death. Brought on by a very invasive media.

Meghan Markle's Palace Ordeal

In the explosive Oprah interview, Meghan Markle admitted that after Archie's birth, she was having a tough time and even had suicidal thoughts. And when she reached out to the Palace officials, asking for help, she was denied mental healthcare.

Markle said that she reached out to a senior royal advisor, recalling, "I said that, 'I've never felt this way before, and I need to go somewhere.'" But then she continued to narrate, "I was told that I couldn't, that it wouldn't be good for the institution."

But royal experts say others in the royal family have had therapy before, so many have raised doubts about Markle's claims.

Many Claim Of Couple's 'Bigger Plan'

But not everyone is ready to beleive the story of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Many blame Markle for creating the rift between the royal family, but then some allege that it is all part of the couple's ultimate plan.

Many question the Oprah interview, because Markle and Prince Harry ended up spilling a lot of information, something they were at pains to keep from the British media.

If they wanted privacy, there are those who claim the Oprah interview should not have happened. But it did, and for many, it raised questions.

But There's Plenty Of Support As Well

Many question the sincerity behind the couple's claims. But some see what the royal life did to Princess Diana and believe that the steps the couple took will keep them safe and their children safer.

With the announcement of Archwell Productions, the couple is now working towards a career.

The dissenters and doubters will always be there, but for the fans of the Sussex Royals, it seems the fairytale has started just now, after the ending of the nightmare.

But the challenges are still not over, especially Prince Harry's memoir hitting the stands soon.
