Why the 'anti-royal vow renewal'? 

As per the source at Heat, Harry and Meghan are quite busy with their schedules but they will take out time as both of them are "super-excited" to do this.

The insider claimed, "they’re more in love now than ever, and proud of everything they’ve got through together these past four years. Saying their vows again is a beautiful way to underline that."

The insider continued, "Harry will always respect and have a special affinity towards the country of his birth, and both he and Meghan treasure the memory of their UK wedding, despite the dramas that ended up overshadowing it."
