If you are wondering what caused Megxit that led Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to quit as senior royals, we have a piece of information here. A recent report has suggested that the rift was a result of the fight that Meghan went on with to protect the privacy of her son, Archie.
A recent report that appeared on TMZ claims that Meghan was not happy with the overexposure to her son in the British media and was concerned with his privacy. The last straw was the recent private christening ceremony of the baby, which received a backlash from the public. The public in the United Kingdom is, in a way, obsessed with the royal family and their private life, and they claim that they have a right to know it as taxpayers of the country. It may be worthwhile to remember here that it was the same sort of the zeal that killed Princess Diana years ago.
The British press expected Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to let them publish the photos of their son Archie. It may be noted that Prince William and Kate Middleton allowed that with their children. Meghan was criticized for being overly protective of her son, and this irked the British media.
This was too much for Meghan, and it has been reported that she pushed for Megxit – a term coined by The Sun coined to designate the decision of Prince Harry and Meghan to step down from the royal duties.
However, a few sources suggest that the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry is heartbroken and emotionally tormented at the idea of permanent separation and has been looking for some sort of halfway course to address the issue, as per The London Times. It has been stated that she was determined to leave as she could not take the intense scrutiny that she and her son were made to undergo. He is said to have been destined to make a choice.
