KEY POINTS

  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were, allegedly, at breaking point on Archie's first birthday
  • The former 'Suits' actress was, reportedly, frustrated that her son's soiree went by largely unnoticed
  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to be feeling so much pressure since 'Megxit'

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to make headlines even after their controversial royal exit in April. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent a couple of weeks in Vancouver Island in Canada before they decided to move to Los Angeles, California amid the perils posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. While there are reports saying that Meghan and Harry are loving their fresh start in the United States, other claims suggest that there is trouble in paradise for the royal couple.

Woman’s Day Australia, in its upcoming May 11, 2020 issue, stated that Meghan and Prince Harry were at breaking point as they prepare for the lockdown birthday bash of their only child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The entertainment news outlet reported that the Sussex couple’s tempers are boiling because of the pressures they are experiencing since their bombshell royal exit.

An unnamed source told the outlet that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been dealing with so many stuff lately and things are, allegedly, not going well in the Sussex household. It added that Meghan is kind of frustrated that Archie’s first birthday got little exposure due to the lockdowns. However, no concrete pieces of evidence can prove that these hearsays are true up to this writing.

“Meghan was looking forward to throwing the party of the century and making it their debut into Hollywood society, and now she feels the chance has been ripped away. Of course, she’s hardly suffering compared to most of the world, so her griping must be getting on Harry’s nerves. He’s incredulous she’s so obsessed with a birthday at a time like this – Archie won’t even remember it!” the insider claimed.

“Apparently poor Harry was tearing his hair out trying to find stuff he’d honestly never heard of before – smash cakes, socially distant entertainers, gifts for Archie and, of course, something special for Meghan. She’s accustomed to receiving jewelry on any special occasion in their lives, and this was no exception. Harry usually has staff for this stuff, but most of them are stuck in their own homes with their own problems,” it went on.

The same tipster stated that Meghan Markle did not consider Prince Harry’s suggestion they should manage their finances wisely, especially now that they are no longer receiving support from the royal family. It added that the Sussex pair needs to make, approximately, $20 million annually to maintain their lifestyle.

Both Meghan and Prince Harry have yet to comment on these unverified claims. However, with Woman’s Day’s history of publishing stories based on the statements of its phony and unreliable sources, this could be another baseless report waiting to be quashed. Hence, avid followers of the couple should take these rumors with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.

Meanwhile, an informant told People that Archie had a “smash cake” during his birthday. The young royal turned one, on May 6, and, reportedly, celebrated with his relatives and friends through a video conferencing app called Zoom. It added Meghan Markle and Prince Harry possibly had a family stroll with their pets that day.
