Harry will have a more difficult time in US than Meghan had in UK because 'he’s not as tough as she is'
A royal expert has revealed that it would be tough for Prince Harry to thrive in the US with his wife, Meghan Markle. Royal author Tom Quinn claimed Harry will struggle more while settling down in the foreign land than Meghan and added that he believes the 35-year-old will “be like a lost soul” in the US. Speaking on Channel 5’s new documentary, 'Harry & Meghan: Two Troubled Years', Quinn said: “It will be far worse for Harry in America than Meghan in England. Because he’s not as tough as she is.”
While a journalist and broadcaster, Daisy McAndrew, said in the documentary that Harry will miss his military work the most in the future. “When he did leave, he clearly wasn’t ready or willing or able to completely sever those ties. Which is why he’s continued, not just with honorary titles but he wanted to really continue to support injured serviceman both with the walking charity and the Invictus Games,” McAndrew told the program, adding: “That has really brought him a lot of happiness. I think that’s what he’s going to miss the most now that he’s not in the UK.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex got married on May 19, 2018, in a lavish ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in London. However, in March this year, they stepped down from senior royal duties as the duo wanted to start a financially independent life away from the palace, although there will be a review of arrangements after 12 months.
When the pair decided to step down, the Queen said she and the Royal Family were “entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family”. “Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family,” the monarch added in a statement at the time.
The couple along with their little son, Archie, had been living in Vancouver Island, Canada before they shifted to Los Angeles, California, in late March. They moved to the US before the two countries shut their borders due to coronavirus lockdown. Harry and the 38-year-old ‘Suits’ actress have been staying at an ultra-luxury Beverly Hills mansion that belongs to Tyler Perry. Perry's mansion, estimated at $18 million, boasts of eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, and is located on 22 acres on top of a hill in the exclusive Beverly Ridge Estates guard-gated community.
The Sussexes, who celebrated their second wedding anniversary on May 19, are also reportedly planning to buy their dream home. They are reportedly looking at the westside of Los Angeles for potential houses. Meghan and Harry have an estimated budget of $12 million to $18 million to buy the property.
Meghan has a huge support system in Los Angeles as her mother Doria Ragland, who is a social worker and a yoga instructor, lives nearby. In addition, her close friend, Serena Williams, also lives in a neighboring gated community with her family.
