Harry and Meghan stepped down from their roles last year

Prince Harry was the real driving force behind Megxit, a source has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, and wife Meghan Markle stepped back from royal life in March last year.

The couple moved to America early last year and have since set up life in California with their one-year-old son, Archie.

“Despite everything that has been going on this year, they don’t regret their move to the US; they love that they are able to focus on projects and causes that are important to them.”

Meghan and Harry announced their plans to step down from their senior royal roles in January 2020.

However, Harry was due to return to the UK in March this year for a review on their departure with the Queen.

Due to the pandemic, reports suggest he won’t be able to return because non-essential travel is banned.

Despite the couple’s decision to step back, Her Majesty is reportedly supportive of Meghan and Harry’s new career ventures.

Since moving to the US, Meghan and Harry have signed multi-million pound deals with Netflix and Spotify.

“There is no anger or animosity [on behalf of the Royal Family],” a source told The Sun.

“But every commercial deal has been a nail in the coffin of any kind of return to royal life.

“To come back would mean they would have to undo all the commercial tie-ups they have already done. That is absolutely their choice and the Queen has agreed they can pursue these new carers.”
