Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly “itching” to move away from the traditional royal life.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are making their own rules. They didn’t follow the precedents set by the senior royals like having a baby photoshoot after welcoming a royal baby.
Prince Harry and Markle also decided to have their own social media account. Previously, they were under Kensington Palace. Following their move to Buckingham Palace, the couple announced a separate Instagram account.
“This is the first move of the Sussexes moving away and having their own court and also setting themselves us separate from Prince William and Kate,” royal expert Juliet Rieden said of the couple’s decision.
Rieden believes that Prince Harry and Markle’s move made sense because their work is going to be very different from the other royals, especially from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
“They’ve made it very clear they are eager and itching to get at creating a whole new world for themselves using the royal pedestal Meghan has found herself on and the one Prince Harry, of course, has always been on.”
However, the couple has been warned of their choices. Duncan Larcombe wasn’t pleased with the couple’s delayed announcement of baby Archie’s arrival. He noticed Prince Harry’s indifference to the media and how he shut down the press at his wedding. He felt that Prince Harry did it again with the birth of his son.
Larcombe questioned the announcement saying that Markle was in labor when she already gave birth several hours earlier. He warned them that the “palace cannot issue lies,” adding that this could have implications to the couple.
Dickie Arbiter added that Buckingham Palace would lose its credibility if the people would find out that the baby already arrived after they “categorically denied” it. Prior to Prince Harry’s confirmation that Archie already arrived, there were already rumors that Markle had already given birth. However, the palace quashed the speculations.
In related news, betting odds suggest that the couple might make their second baby announcement this year. The odds of Prince Harry and Markle announcing baby no. 2 before the year ends is at 8-1.
