Daily Mail: Meghan Markle Was Reportedly Miserable in the UK and Doesn't Intend on Living There

More news continues to air concerning Meghan and Harry's decision to step down as senior royal members, with the latest being a report claiming that the Duchess felt miserable living in the UK. 

A friend of Meghan Markle revealed to "Daily Mail" that the Duchess has the backing of her mother, Doria Ragland, in her and Harry's decision to quit their senior roles at Buckingham Palace. 

Doria has been worried about her daughter and is relieved that she has chosen to put her mental health and well being first, before her position in the Royal family.

The source also revealed that Meghan admitted to having struggled since giving birth to Baby Archie and was miserable in the United Kingdom, not sleeping well, as she began to have anxiety attacks over her future. 

About Meghan, who was last seen in Canada, the source said:

"This was her plan all along, to eventually leave the UK and build her own empire with Harry."

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
