Hollywood Life: Prince Harry & Meghan Feel Comfortable to Open up & Return to the Spotlight
According to a source close to the couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly now feel comfortable opening up to the public and returning to the spotlight.
Ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, a source close to the couple has shared why the duo, who initially sought privacy, are willing to open up again.
The last time Harry and Meghan granted an interview was during their engagement back in 2017, and ever since, the couple has achieved several significant milestones, particularly their decision to exit the royal family due to lack of privacy.

Although Harry and Meghan have bagged multi-million dollar deals with media companies and launched Archewell foundation since their step down from the royal family, they haven’t been ready to open up to the public until now. The source explained:
“Now that Archewell is in full swing, Meghan and Harry are ready to talk about it. That’s why the time is finally right for this big sitdown. “
The insider noted that Harry and Meghan weren’t ready to speak up until their plans were solidified. The source mentioned that if the interview with Oprah had come earlier, the couple wouldn’t have the right answers for the questions asked.
The palace revealed in a statement that Harry and Meghan would therefore lose all their royal patronages.
However, things are better, especially with Archewell performing excellently. Also, the news of their second pregnancy, which they had the chance of announcing first, plays a massive role in their choice to return to the spotlight.
Fans may recall that on Valentine’s Day, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the great news of their second pregnancy via a black-and-white maternity shoot taken outdoors by photographer Misan Harriman.
Shortly after the pregnancy announcement, Buckingham Palace confirmed that the duo would not return as working members of the royal family following the 12-month trial period after their exit in January 2020.
The palace revealed in a statement that Harry and Meghan would therefore lose all their royal patronages, with Harry also saying goodbye to his honorary military appointments. The roles and patronages would be distributed to other royals.
Since their pregnancy announcement and Buckingham’s press release on Monday, February 22, the couple made their first public appearance at a virtual Spotify event that saw them on the couch of their Montecito home.
Harry and Meghan discussed their company, Archewell productions, which is set to produce podcast content for Spotify. The duchess stunned in a grey dress with floral patterns that concealed her baby bump.
