Happiness looks good on them.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to step down from the royal family in January 2020 was a controversial one — and since then, it seems like the public has only become more invested in their decision.
The couple rounded out their final royal engagements in March 2020. Recalling that “whirlwind” week in the Harry & Meghan docuseries, Harry opened up about his family’s “cold” and “distant” way of treating him and Meghan.
There were a lot of nuances about their exit to figure out — even if Meghan was excluded from discussion within the royal family. “Imagine a conversation, a roundtable discussion about the future of your life... and you, as the mom and the wife and the target, in many regards, aren’t invited to have a seat at the table,” she said.
The hurtful press coverage didn’t stop when they moved out of the U.K. "You are making people want to kill me," Meghan said in Episode 5, opening up about the death threats she received. "It's not just a tabloid, it's not just some story, you are making me scared.”
"I accept that there will be people around the world who fundamentally disagree with what I've done and how I've done it, but I knew that I had to do everything I could to protect my family," Harry explained in the docuseries. "Especially after what happened to my mom."
