KEY POINTS

  • Meghan Markle was convinced that there was a conspiracy against her when she was still a working royal
  • The Duchess of Sussex felt like an outsider when she was still in the royal family
  • Prince Harry and Markle projected a happy image even if they were unhappy

Meghan Markle allegedly believed that there was a conspiracy against her, and she felt like an “outsider” when she was still in the royal family.

The former “Suits” star joined the royal family in 2017, shortly after her engagement announcement to Prince Harry. Many were surprised because she started accompanying Prince Harry in various engagements even before they got married.

Markle became an official member of the royals when she married Prince Harry on May 19, 2018.

Many thought that everything was going well for the couple until rumors about them feuding with Prince William and Kate Middleton made headlines. The speculations got worse when the fab four didn’t materialize.

Instead, Prince Harry decided to have a separate household from the Cambridges. He also left Kensington Palace to be under the wings of the Queen’s Buckingham Palace.

Shortly after those changes, Prince Harry and Markle announced that they were stepping back as senior members of the royal family. They officially became non-working royals in April and the royal coupled moved to the U.S.

Insiders told Vanity Fair that Markle is happy to be back in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Prince Harry struggles to adjust with the new changes. They also shared why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex ended up with the dramatic decision of leaving the royal family.

“She was convinced there was a conspiracy against her and so she basically put herself in self isolation when they moved to Frogmore,” a source told the outlet.

“I think she felt like an outsider from the start. This wasn’t the life she was used to and she wanted out.”

Meanwhile, royal expert Angela Mollard shared her thoughts on the couple’s move to the U.S. According to her, it would be difficult for Prince Harry and he would likely feel separated from his family and suffer from “irrelevancy.”

Royal biographer Katie Nicholl shared that things were not really easy for Markle when she was in the U.K. It was evident in her emotional interview for an ITV documentary. However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex just projected a happy image.

“It became very apparent from that documentary in Africa, that perhaps while she made it look easy, it obviously wasn't easy,” Nicholl said of Markle when she was still in the royal family.
