As experts continue to analyze the reasons why Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex left the royal family, a royal publisher believes he has identified the moment when things became “overwhelming”, in particular for Meghan.
Prince Harry and Meghan rushed into royal life, expert says
During the Save the Queen Pod podcast, royal experts brainstormed some of the best Sussex moments before going out. Walking the path of remembrance, the Daily Mirror editor, Russell Myers, determined that the reason for Prince Harry and Meghan’s departure had a lot to do with how their roles were so “overwhelming.”
Myers shared a memory of the 2018 Sussex tour of Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand. “It was probably their proudest moment … it was a great tour, it was absolutely relentless,” he shared on rhythm and schedule.
Podcast host Ann Gripper wondered, “Aren’t you looking back on this tour now and do you think they were actually going too fast?”
“We talked about it a bit, maybe they should have gotten into royal life at first, maybe it wouldn’t have gotten so overwhelming,” she noted. “The way you talk about this tour now, it sounds intense. “
“It is not a good way to work,” added Gripper.
“Yeah, she was pregnant too, remember,” shared Myers. “I couldn’t believe the fact that she was following such a rhythm, she looked incredible …. It was a relentless calendar. “
The editor went on, “And I understand it was their first tour, she wanted to hit the ground running … they were the hottest ticket in the world. “
Were they doing too much as members of the royal family?
Myers believes that Prince Harry and Meghan may have taken too much responsibility and could have followed Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, by taking a little rhythm, given that it is a “work for life”.
“I am unable to explain it [Megxit], really, and why they
I found it [royal life] so hard, “said Myers. “Maybe they tried to do too
a lot. It may be a lesson that they will advance in their new life. “
He added: “But I think it is, honestly, related to the constraints to which they both felt subjected. Whether it’s different in the private and corporate world, I’m sure. “
Myers also touched on how Meghan had other projects that showed her a positive light, noting, “Maybe if she had done other projects like that, she might have found it a little easier. . “
“She alone will know, really, the straw that broke the camel’s back,” he noted, adding, “She said she was not supported in the family. But they may have tried to do a little too much. “
Should Meghan have followed Kate’s example?
The royal editor went on to cite the example that Prince William and Kate offered Kate not to speed up projects immediately. “When Kate and William started – we only see Kate in the foreground in the past year, and she’s been royal for nine years,” noted Myers.
He added, “This is a lifetime job, and you have to follow the advice that is there for you. And without a doubt, they never did this as a couple, and it is unfortunately to their detriment. “
