Prince Harry ‘no longer living in fear’ amid new life in US with Meghan Markle

Prince Harry and William on royal 'disagreements' in 2018

The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex have been at the centre of criticism since they announced last year their intentions to relinquish their royal duties and live independently from the Firm. However, a royal commentator has claimed the Duke no longer fears what critics may have to say about his new life in California.

Bryony Gordon wrote in an opinion piece for the Telegraph: “The Duke knows he has critics. He expects to have critics, given the very public stance he has made, not just about the media, but also his own family.

“He has accepted this, and it is this acceptance that has set him free, in many ways.

“He is no longer living in fear of the repercussions of existing as himself, as he wants and needs to be.”

According to the journalist, who is a friend of the Duke and the Duchess, Harry also finds himself spiritually at home" in California.

She highlighted how the Duke now has a "sense of purpose" after stepping back from his royal duties alongside his wife.

However, Ms Gordon refuted theories that Meghan has "changed" Harry.

She added: "It is often suggested that the Duke’s wife, Meghan, has somehow changed him, as if he is a man completely incapable of independent thought.

"But those close to Harry know that he had long been open to the shift we now see in him."

The couple are now expecting their second child, who according to speculations could be delivered at their Santa Barbara home.

According to a royal expert, the couple’s first daughter could be a "great unifier" for the couple and the Royal Family and help heal rifts.

True Royalty TV founder Nick Bullen told Us Weekly how child birth could bring the Sussexes closer to Harry’s family.

He said: “The birth of a baby is always a great unifier for a family and I’m sure all sides of the Sussex family will want to celebrate with Harry and Meghan.

“I think you can be absolutely certain that Harry and Meghan will be jumping on a Zoom call to introduce Her Majesty to her 11th great-grandchild.”
