US Weekly: Prince Harry Snapped after He Realized Meghan Would Never Get Fair Treatment in the UK

Rumors surrounding the exit of Prince Harry and Meghan from senior royal duties were recently confirmed. It is claimed that Harry became disillusioned with the unfair treatment of his wife in the UK.

Earlier in January, the Royal Family and indeed the whole world was shocked by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex' announcement that they would be stepping aside from senior royal duties.

The couple swiftly followed that up with the news that they would be splitting their time between North America and the United Kingdom before buying a home in Canada.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan made a brief return to the UK earlier this month for their last official royal engagement but have now been reunited with ten-month-old son Archie who they had to leave behind in Canada. 

More information is now coming to light as to the reason behind the shocking decision by the couple. A source recently told Us Weekly:

"When it became clear Meghan was never going to get a fair shake, Harry snapped."

“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 (link in bio) Image © PA

Even though several rumors making the rounds claim that Meghan influenced the decision to step back from royal duties, the source says Harry remains adamant that it was his call.

Prince Harry, 35, is said to have reached his limit with the treatment of Meghan, 38, before deciding to relocate to Canada officially. 

The couple has taken a crucial step into their new quiet life.

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

A second source also claims that Harry wanted to shield his son Archie from all the negativity and tension back home in England.

Harry and Meghan, who are enjoying their time with their son as they self-isolate amid the Coronavirus outbreak, are delighted with the development of little Archie. An insider exclusively told Closer Weekly:

"He's just started walking, too, and while he's into everything... they feel blessed to have such a well-behaved, happy little boy."

The lovebirds are taking every precaution to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus, limiting them to just a few staff. Last week the Royal couple also gave out some advice to their fans on how to deal with the crisis.

In a recent development, Smart Works Charity, who have Meghan as Patron has dropped every mention of the actress as either "HRH" or "royal" on their official website.

With this new development, the couple has taken a crucial step into their new quiet life away from the royal spotlights, which includes long walks and yoga sessions.

Before their royal wedding in 2018, Meghan had lived in Canada while working on the popular TV series "Suits." In 2017, Harry also hosted an Invictus Games in Toronto.
