Sharon Osbourne's Criticism of Meghan & Harry over Royal Exit — A Look Back at All the Times
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's exit from the Royal Family has been criticized by a lot of people, including Sharon Osbourne. For years, Osbourne has been commenting on the couple's every move.
Osbourne said she understands why the couple got a backlash, as reported by Closer Weekly. She explained that Harry's family has been a royal for thousands of years, and so both Meghan and Harry should respect them.
For Osbourne, the couple's decision to back out from their royal responsibilities came at a wrong time because Queen Elizabeth is set to retire in 18 months. The couple could have waited until the Queen has retired, she said.

FAILING TO ADJUST
Meghan and Harry earlier lived in a private property on Vancouver Island. During their stay there, the couple were able to spend quality time together with their son, Archie, as reported by the Sun.
But Osbourne was sad for Harry leaving the country without giving the Royal Palace enough chance. She believes that Harry and Meghan failed to adjust quickly to Royal's life as a couple.
"For me, I don’t think as a couple they gave it a really good shot. Eighteen months of marriage and trying to find your place within the Windsor family and within the public's eye, 18 months isn't enough." Osbourne explained.

LAST ROYAL ENGAGEMENT
The couple ended their last royal engagement last March. The Endeavour Fund Awards was the last social event they attended.
When they flew into the UK for the event, the couple did not bring Archie with them. Their child remained in Canada with his nanny and Meghan's friend, Jessica Mulroney.
The former royal couple was thought to live in Canada for good but they recently moved to Los Angeles.
DIFFERENT LIFE IN L.A.
Leaving Archie in Canada made the Queen "very sad." Also, if there will be future visits to the UK, Meghan might not bring Archie along with her and Harry.
The former royal couple was thought to live in Canada for good but they recently moved to Los Angeles. Osbourne warned them that they will have no life at all, as reported by Mirror.
Since the Royal Family live in a very private and secured residence, Osbourne said Harry living in LA is so foreign. They could have chosen quieter areas, like in Santa Barbara.
"So that they can have somewhat of a normal existence. But if they are going to live in LA, right in the centre, it's going to be a nightmare for them with the press and the paparazzi," she added.
After leaving the British Royal Palace, Megan and Harry were eager to focus their time and energy on their family. But they will still continue to support existing charities and non-profit groups in the UK.
