In a whirlwind of speculation, rumors are swirling around the state of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's marriage. Reports from various sources suggest that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently on a "trial separation" following a series of career disappointments and personal challenges.
According to a report from RadarOnline, the royal couple is taking time apart to reassess their relationship and future steps. An insider suggests that Prince Harry is trying to "find himself" after a series of life-altering changes following his exit from the royal family. "They're trying to figure out what hit them," the source shared. "Harry doesn't fit in Meghan's tacky Tinseltown world."
However, this claim seems broad, considering Prince Harry's seamless transition into celebrity circles, even during his time as a senior royal. Like his late mother, Princess Diana, he has always maintained a recognizable name in his inner friend circle. Moreover, the couple has weathered numerous storms in the first five years of their union, appearing unbreakable so far.
The recent "rocky" months are understandable, given the ongoing family feud, changes in their business deals, and their current rebranding. It's a lot of change. The source believes that Harry's upcoming trip to Africa for his Netflix documentary will provide some clarity about the next steps in their marriage. "Taking time apart on different continents will hopefully help them find whatever they need to move on," they concluded.
However, it's important to note that these separation rumors have circulated before and have proven to be baseless. The couple's Montecito bubble is small, making it difficult to keep secrets. This rumor is probably the last thing Prince Harry and Meghan need to hear; they've got enough on their plate.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot on May 18, 2018, at Windsor Castle, specifically in St George's Chapel. Despite the challenges they've faced, their commitment to each other and their shared goals has remained evident. As the rumors continue to circulate, the world watches and waits for any official confirmation or denial from the couple themselves.
Custody Debate Over Children Archie and Lilibet
Rumours of the potential separation between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have ignited a heated online debate concerning the custody of their two children, Archie and Lilibet. The speculation was triggered by a report from Page Six titled “Rumors swirl there’s trouble in paradise for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.”
Royal enthusiasts have been quick to chime in on the matter. One fan, citing an old royal family law, suggested that the custody of the children could be determined by their lineage and potential claim to the throne. Another fan recalled the divorce of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, where the Queen's guardianship over William and Harry was invoked due to the jurisdiction of the Crown.
However, the likelihood of a split between the Sussexes has been downplayed by royal commentator and author Petronella Wyatt. She argued that a breakup seems unlikely due to American custody laws and Prince Harry's strained relationship with his brother, Prince William. Wyatt stated, “He’s burnt all his bridges … his children who are American citizens will be brought up as Americans … What would happen to the children because there are the American custody laws?”
The conjecture surrounding the royal couple's marital status and the potential implications for their children's custody continues to fuel discussions. However, it's important to note that these are merely rumours, and no official statement has been made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex regarding their relationship status.
