Meghan and Harry shocked royal fans around the world in January when they announced on Instagram that they would leave the royal family. Their last day of royal functions was officially March 31, but before that, the couple moved to Los Angele to set up their new home with baby Archie. The Sussexes spoke of their decision to leave royal life as a way to guarantee the privacy of their young family after Archie was born in May.
In the last episode, the podcast hosts discussed the reasons for the historic royal split.
After Mr. Myers said the Duke and Duchess are extremely popular in Australia and New Zealand after their 2018 tour, Ms. Gripper asked, “Don’t you watch this tour now and do you think, in fact , maybe they were going a little 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.
“The way you talk about this tour now, it sounds intense.
“It is not a good way to work. “
Mr. Myers said, “Yes, and she was also pregnant, remember.
“I couldn’t believe she was going at such a pace, and she looked incredible.
“It was a relentless calendar.
“And I understand that it was their first tour and that she wanted to start, they were the hottest ticket in the world.
” [But] I really can’t explain it and why they found it [royal life] very difficult.
“Maybe they tried to do too much.
“It may be a lesson that they will advance in their new life.
“But I think it is, honestly, related to the constraints to which they both felt subjected.
“Whether it is different in the private and corporate world, I don’t know. “
Myers also commented that Meghan’s work with the SmartWorks charity and fundraising for Grenfell were some of her best moments.
He added, “Maybe if she had done other projects like that, she would have found it a little easier.
“She alone will know, really, the straw that broke the camel’s back.
“She said she was not supported in the family.
“But maybe they tried to do a little too much.
“You know, when Kate and William started – we only see Kate in the foreground in the past year, and she’s been royal for nine years.
“It’s a lifetime job, and you have to follow the advice that’s there for you.
“And without a doubt, they never did this as a pair, and that is unfortunately to their detriment. “
