- A source claims that it was Prince Harry who decided to move his family to Canada.
- Harry reportedly "snapped" over how Meghan was being treated, which is why he wanted to leave the U.K.
While it looks Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are loving their new life in Canada—per reports,"they are enjoying living a quiet life" and baby Archie is "doing great"—more intel is coming out about why the couple decided to move away from England/the royal family in the first place.
Apparently, Harry got really upset after he saw that Meghan wasn't being given a chance, and he was the one who decided to pack up the family and relocate. A source tells Us Weekly, "When it became clear Meghan was never going to get a fair shake, Harry snapped. He’s adamant that it was his call to move to Canada." And oof—"snapped" does not sound good!
It's not clear whether Harry thought that Meghan wasn't getting a "fair shake" from the British tabloids or from his own family, but it looks like both cases might be true. As we all know, Harry and Meghan previously filed a lawsuit against some British tabloids, and it also looks like things haven't been great between Harry and Prince William. According to a recent report, while William and Harry have "stopped short of trash-talking each other," they’re both "filled with anger and resentment," and William is still upset about Harry stepping down from his royal duties. (But FWIW, the Queen seems to have come to terms with it.)
So, uh, sounds like it's a good thing that Harry and Meghan moved to Vancouver!
