Meghan Markle 'Feels Like A New Person' Post-Megxit
Now that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially completed their royal duties and have moved from the UK to Canada, an insider claims that the former Suits actress has had “the chance to reset.”
Speaking to Us Weekly , the source claimed: “Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London. She feels like a new person.”
As nearly everyone on planet Earth knows, Harry and Meghan announced in early January that they planned to step down as senior members of the royal family so they could live a more private life with their ten-month-old son, Archie Harrison.
The couple explained that after many months of reflection and internal discussions, they chose to make the transition this year so they could start to carve out a new progressive role in the royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said that they wanted to work to become financially independent and split their time between the UK and North America.
While Queen Elizabeth did amend the couple’s original plan, they were allowed to step down as senior royals and move to Canada. They made their final appearances as working royals earlier this month, and Megxit will officially happen on March 31st. There is a one-year transition period while the royal family works out Harry and Meghan’s financial support and security arrangements.
According to the insider, Markle now has “a real spring in her step again” now that royal life is behind her. “It’s wonderful to see her in top form,” said the source.
They claimed that Markle “felt trapped and claustrophobic” when she was living at Frogmore Cottage with Prince Harry, and it led to panic attacks.
“She was nervous to step outside her own front door because of all the negative attention she attracted,” said the insider.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in isolation in Canada where they plan to stay amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In a statement on March 20th, the couple said that it is perfectly normal to feel bored or not know what to do with yourself without your normal routine.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex added that our emotional well-being is challenged everyday whether we realize it or not, but our lives are filled with distractions. Now, with constantly changing COVID coverage, everyone is adjusting to this “new normal and the feelings that come with it.”
