• Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Megxit could've have ended differently
  • The royal couple didn't receive any support from the royal family
  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle didn't initially think that Megxit was necessary 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Megxit would’ve had a different outcome if only the royal family stood up for the royal couple during their darkest times.

In an article he wrote for Harper’s Bazaar, royal commentator Omid Scobie said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were left with no other choice but to fend for themselves.

“The reality was a couple who were left with no other choice but to create their own change after being left to fend for themselves against impossible circumstances - even during her pregnancy. They knew something had to change, but they also didn't want to stop supporting the Queen. One can't help but wonder if things might have been different if a family member or two had stood up for them during the darkest times,” he said.

Scobie went on to say that Prince Harry and Markle were most likely crushed by Megxit and they initially didn’t think that it was necessary. This is why when they first made an announcement, the royal couple simply said that they were stepping back from their royal duties.

But following a crisis talk in Sandringham with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Prince William, it was announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be quitting the royal family for good.

“To say they were crushed is an understatement. It’s a decision that the couple still feel wasn’t necessary, but also wasn’t a surprise, given the lack of support they received as they were relentlessly attacked by sections of the British press with almost daily mistruths and hateful commentary. ,” Scobie said.

The royal commentator was present when Prince Harry and Markle attended their final royal engagements in the United Kingdom. Immediately after, the royal couple flew back to Canada to reunite with their 10-month-old son, Archie.

Prince Harry and Markle decided to not bring Archie to London during their trip since they returned to the United Kingdom for work and not for vacation.
