It’s been quite the roller-coaster ride for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: from their fairytale wedding followed by months of traveling to welcoming the arrival of baby Archie.
Then followed the shock announcement from the much-loved couple that they were retiring from senior royal life and leaving the U.K.
The couple moved to Canada announcing they would be dividing their time between there and the U.K. But at the end of March they moved to California.
Just days after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the country’s borders would be closing due to the coronavirus pandemic, the couple and their 10-month-old son Archie took a private jet to the sunshine state.
Now it’s been reported that Meghan is “worried” for her homesick husband who is “struggling” to settle into his new life in the U.S., according to the Daily Star newspaper.
Just one month after the couple were reportedly looking for a stateside home and reviewing security costs Harry is “feeling out of place”, according to the publication.
Not surprising to many of us considering 35-year-old Harry has spent a lifetime in London but his American wife is said to have been “taken by surprise” by Harry’s homesickness.
According to OK! magazine : “This could be the toughest test that Harry and Meghan have gone through since they got married.
“Harry is feeling homesick and that’s taken Meghan by surprise as he thought the move was the right decision at the start of all this.
“Meghan is being very supportive and helping him through it as best she can,” as per the report in the U.K. magazine.
“For Harry, it must feel like a complete change of everything he’s ever known. It’s a new life, and even professionally a total life change in terms of how many people are involved in their private life and the making of key decisions.
“He misses elements of his old life – the routine, his old friends and, of course, the daily contact with his family.
“Meghan is worried that if Harry doesn’t start feeling more positive about their decision they’ll end up regretting their life choice.”
Recently Harry showed the strong connection he feels to his home after appearing in a video call to other parents and carers from the children’s charity WellChild, a U.K. nonprofit to help children with serious health needs.
Speaking about being in lockdown, he said: “There are a hell of a lot of positives that are happening at the same time and being able to have family time – so much family time – that you almost think, ‘Do I feel guilty for having so much family time?’
“You’ve got to celebrate those moments where you are just on the floor rolling around in hysterics.”
I really hope this much-loved family find a way to be happy, it’s not easy when a couple are from two different countries, and after all they are only human.
What do you think of their move to the U.S.? Is it understandable that Harry might be struggling? Please leave your comments on our Facebook page and don’t forget to share.
