Daily Mail: Meghan Markle Doesn't Regret Stepping Back from Royal Family & Is Taking Steps to Relaunch Her Career
Meghan Markle has gradually settled into her new life away from the royal family. She reportedly has no regrets about the decision and she's set to make the most of her newfound freedom.
The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is on a mission to explore her freedom from the royal life as she is making moves to relaunch her entertainment career.
A source disclosed to Daily Mail that the "Suits" actress does not regret her decision to step away from the royal family, but rather, feels like a huge weight has been lifted.
THE SKY IS HER LIMIT
Addressing the outlet, the source, a friend of the family, disclosed the Duchess's intention to reestablish her career and once again become a force to reckon with in the movie industry. The friend revealed:
"Meghan said her work with Disney is far from over. The voice-over is just the beginning and that there are more collaborations to come"
Meghan, who reportedly signed a voice-over deal with Disney earlier, in return for a charity donation to support the Elephant Without Borders cause, has also adopted a stable routine of preparing homemade meals for her princes, according to the source.
A BREAK FROM FREEDOM
Despite their fulfilling adventures away from England, the pair still hold the royal family most dear. In a recent announcement, they are expected to make a grand return to the UK in March, to fulfill a royal obligation.
The news of their trip to Miami riled speculations that Prince Harry earned almost $1 million for his speech on mental health.
Their anticipated arrival, for the annual Commonwealth Day service would mark the couple's first reunion with Harry's brother, Prince Williams and his dedicated Duchess.

Having attended the 10th Annual One Young World opening ceremony on Tuesday, The Duchess of Sussex was joined today by The Duke of Sussex for a round table discussion on gender equity with OYW and Queen’s Commonwealth Trust young leaders. Over the last few days, these young leaders became @OneYoungWorld ambassadors with the intention to return to their communities and further existing initiatives to help change the world for the better. This year OYW partnered with the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, of which The Duke and Duchess are President and Vice-President respectively, to provide scholarships to young leaders driving positive social impact in the Commonwealth. This was the most exciting collaboration between two groups The Duchess is passionate about and has been working with for some time.

THERE'S NO TURNING BACK
The brief trip is unlikely to influence a return to their old life as the decision to leave the royal household was carefully thought out beforehand. A source revealed:
"This decision to leave had been weighing on them for a long time, and they are relieved to have it done. A weight has been lifted off their shoulders."
Although their new life came with a price, the two are making up for it with moments spent enjoying fun outings as a family, unscheduled visits, trips, and all the adventures that come with it.

“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
ALREADY WORKING ROYALS
Topping the list of their negotiating terms was the freedom to work wherever they wanted, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have already gotten an early start on earning their finances.
Earlier this month, the pair made a trip to Miami, Florida, where the Prince made his working debut with a speech delivered at the JP Morgan Summit.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London. WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports. The Duke, who first came to these awards over a decade ago, shared in his remarks tonight: “Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child - no one else did at the time, but we did - and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tightly during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time. And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.” • To find out more about tonight’s event and how you can support this very special organisation, please visit @WellChild Photos ©️ PA images
The news of their trip to Miami riled speculations that Prince Harry earned almost $1 million for his speech on mental health and coping with the death of his mom in the last seven years.
