The source added that Duchess of Sussex:

"Does not have a lot of ties to Kensington Palace, the people or other Royals in London."

Markle and Harry have slowly and consistently distanced themselves from members of the Royal family in the past few months. The two opted to spend Christmas away from England.

While Markle and her Prince hinted that they consulted with Buckingham Palace before making their decision public, BBC reported that:

"Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, are said to have blindsided Buckingham Palace, with the announcement."

The decision by the couple has led to several questions. Followers of the Royal family have questioned what the two would do for money since they want to be financially independent and what becomes of their titles.

For the latter, the parents-of-one have no plans to stop being the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. For the former, Markle already has a job offer.

The Daily Mail reported that Andy Cohen of the "Real Housewives" franchise offered the former "Suits" star a spot on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." He made the offer in the comments section after the retirement post.

Markle and Prince Harry have not stated what their plans are. But for now, they are in London trying to put out as many fires as they can, as their loved ones digest the news.

Baby Archie reportedly didn't return to London with his parents. He is supposedly staying with his mother's friend, Jessica Mulroney, and the couple will join him soon.
