On Sunday October 20, a documentary was published called Harry and Meghan: An African Journey. It was filmed during their trip to South Africa in order to give an inside perspective on their life as royals and shine a light on the charities they were working with. However, the documentary received some pushback after its release after Prince Harry shared some personal information about his rumored rift with William. This was a major problem because the royal family has been trying to shut down these rumors in order to keep the media out of their lives, but once he said this, it gave the media all the more reason to ask questions.
This “rift” has been going on for months, and originally spurred from Meghan and Harry moving away from the Kensington Palace complex. This move was due to logistical reasons, and was never meant to create any problems between the couples. However, not everything worked out like Meghan and Harry wanted it to. In the interview, when Harry spoke on behalf of the rumors, he told us, “Inevitably stuff happens, but we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers. We’re certainly on different paths at the moment. I’ll always be there for him and as I know, he’ll always be there for me. We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy but I love him dearly.” This surprising level of detail shocked both the media and the royal family, but it was too late the rumors were confirmed.
Now the media is continuing to attack the couple for this documentary, by ambushing the couple with questions regarding their involvement with the documentary. Harry has been concerned about Meghans health recently as she was just recently pregnant and could be seriously affected by the negative press in such a vulnerable state. As a result of this, the couple is considering moving to the US or at least having a second base in LA with Markle’s mother. It would be a way to escape the chaos and raise their children in a new cultural setting. The couple has not confirmed this plan, but it is a work in progress.
