The Reason Harry Is Having A Really Hard Time In LA
It looks like Prince Harry may have truly stepped out of his comfort zone. Ever since the Duke of Sussex stepped down as a senior royal and moved to Los Angeles with Meghan Markle and their 11-month-old son Archie Harrison, things have apparently been a bit difficult for him.
Harry’s good friend, conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall, spoke to reporters about the prince’s new lifestyle. Despite his confidence in the future, he has found everything up until now to be a little challenging. Goodall explained that she’s been in contact with Harry since “Megxit,” and that she has seen how tough it has been for him to adapt to his new way of life. She told the Radio Times:
“I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but yes, I’ve been in touch, though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging just now.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially stepped away from the monarchy on March 31st 2020. After their exit, they traveled to Canada, where they stayed for a few weeks in a secluded mansion on Vancouver Island. After that, they made the move to California, where they are now living. Though they’re reportedly searching for a permanent home in Los Angeles, they’re currently staying in a private compound in the area.
As fans know, Meghan and Harry are leaving their Sussex Royal brand behind and continuing to support the causes they so cherish through their new organization, Archewell. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, however, their plans have been postponed.
And while it was Meghan’s dream to return to her hometown, she has also been having a tough time since Megxit, mostly because she’s been unable to visit her mother, Doria Ragland, amid the coronavirus pandemic. When the threat of the virus eventually clears, however, it is expected that she and Harry will reunite with Ragland – and continue on with their on-going projects.
While Prince Harry doesn’t seem to regret his decision to quit the monarchy, resigning his royal duties and leaving his family behind was always going to be a hard choice. In March 2020, one of Harry’s oldest friends told Vanity Fair:
“It’s an emotional time for him in many ways. I think in many ways it’s bittersweet. He’s always wanted to have a regular life and to get away from the spotlight, and that’s what he’s doing, but it basically means walking away from his family. Harry’s a loving, loyal guy so that will be very hard for him.”
Harry even opened up about his struggles during a speech at a charity event in January.
Harry went on to insist that, to him and his family, moving on from the royals was the only choice to make.
As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle deal with the coronavirus pandemic, they’ve continued to send positive messages through their Instagram. In one post, they wrote:
“These are uncertain times. And now, more than ever, we need each other. We need each other for truth, for support, and to feel less alone during a time that can honestly feel quite scary.”
In another post, published on March 30th, the couple wrote:
“As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here, the work continues.”
Notably, at the end of their message, the pair signed “Harry and Meghan,” rather than “Their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex” – which was their previous signature.
As most fans know, Harry wanted out of royal life long before he even met Meghan. In a previous interview with the Daily Mail, he even admitted that, if he didn’t have the duties of a prince, he would have liked to be a tour guide in Africa. But although he’s finally found the normality he always craved, it’s hard to say what the future holds for Harry – and his wife. With any luck, however, and a little time to adjust, he might just thrive in his new life in America.
