Though there was a ton of speculation regarding how Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry would adjust outside of the royal bubble, it appears that just six-months after their final royal engagement, the couple is thriving.
Meghan was only a royal for a short time. Therefore, living in her native California feels welcomed and familiar, especially since she no longer has to abide by certain royal rules and she can use her voice and platform the way she sees fit.
Prince Harry seemingly had a more challenging time. He had been a royal his entire life, and existing as a private citizen was something he’d never experienced. Still, it appears that the duo has found their footing and their financial independence with a massive Netflix deal. Unfortunately, the royal family is terribly upset about it.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were stifled by the British royal family
In just the few short months that the Susexes have lived in the United States, they’ve been doing well. They spent time away from the spotlight to carve out a new career path for themselves that includes charity work, speaking engagements, their Archewell foundation, and Netflix.
The pair along with their son, Archie Harrison, have also found their forever home, a $14.7 million estate in Santa Barabara that gives them the space and privacy that they’ve been craving. Best-selling author Omid Scobie revealed on his podcast, Heirpod that this proves how much the pair were being stifled. He said,
The couple had been thriving and have taken their careers as philanthropists to a whole other level. It shows how much they were held back by tradition, hierarchy, and stubbornness within the institution. This is the couple operating in a way they were desperate to for some time but couldn’t for a number of reasons, many of which tie into what is considered too politically sensitive or not.
