Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship (opens in new tab) is definitely not suffering amid their royal exit.

In fact, a source describes as being in the couple inner circle told People (opens in new tab) that the couple are more in love than ever in the wake of their decision to step back from their duties as senior members of the royal family. 

"They are besotted and very sweet with each other," the source said.

Unsurprisingly, Harry and Meghan (opens in new tab) are focused on the thing that matters most to them—their nine-month-old son, Archie Harrison (opens in new tab).

"Archie is the priority," a friend of the couple's told People. "It’s very much still about taking care of him and putting the family first. He’s a happy kid—he loves to laugh. Archie and Harry have such a good time together. And Meghan is a great mom. She’s very much about tending to him. They are trying to live their life as regular parents."

Of course, Archie (opens in new tab) isn't getting all of Harry and Meghan's attention (opens in new tab). They're also reserving plenty of love for their furbabies (opens in new tab)

"They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs," the source said.

According to the People report, Harry and Meghan (opens in new tab) have been spending most of their time relaxing in their Vancouver Island home or hiking in the woods nearby. As much as they're clearly enjoying their time in Canada, it's still not clear if the Sussex family (opens in new tab) will make the area their permanent home base in North America (opens in new tab) or if they'll split time between Canada and the United States.

"They love being in Canada, but they are looking at houses in L.A. too," the insider added. "They’ll likely have houses in both places."

Clearly, the Sussex family (opens in new tab) are all living their best lives and that's really all that matters.
