• Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's relationship is reportedly strained
  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are rumored to be divorcing
  • The palace seemingly hinted at the royal couple's divorce 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are rumored to be on the brink of a divorce.

A source previously told Life & Style that the royal couple’s relationship has been strained throughout the past couple of months because of bad press that they have been receiving.

Even though Prince Harry would move heaven and earth for the Duchess of Sussex, it is unlikely for him to not be affected by all of the negative criticisms that he and his wife have been receiving.

Other than the constant media scrutiny that they are faced with, the royal couple’s relationship has also become strained because of their similar backgrounds. Prince Harry and Markle both came from broken families, and their parents got divorced while they were still very young.

However, their respective broken families could also be the reason why Prince Harry and Markle want to work harder on their marriage.

“Neither Meghan or Harry grew up in a traditionally stable family, and while generally speaking they had a happy childhood, it’s important to them for Archie to see his parents in a loving relationship,” the source said.

Meanwhile, even the palace seems to be convinced that Markle and Prince Harry’s marriage won’t survive until the end. Following the royal couple’s bombshell exit last month, the palace announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stripped off their HRH titles.

They said that Prince Harry will be referred to as Harry, Duke of Sussex, while his wife will be referred to as Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. According to Page Six, the particular formatting of the titles with the comma was only ever used for women who were divorced from the royal family.

For instance, Prince Charles’ ex-wife’s title was styled as Diana, Princess of Wales after she divorced the heir to the throne. The same formatting of the title was given to Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York after their divorce.

As of late, Prince Harry and Markle have not filed for divorce.
