Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sent shock waves around the world by deciding to step down as senior members of the royal family. Their decision to move to Canada is being dubbed as "a way to get away from the British paparazzi as much as possible." But is that possible?

An hour-long special produced by TMZ titled 'Harry & Meghan: Royals in Crisis' takes a long glance at the aftermath of the couple’s announcement to become financially independent from The Crown. Mark Cuban, Dr Phil aka Phillip C McGraw, Ryan Seacrest, Piers Morgan and Lisa Vanderpump, several people described by TMZ as “close” to the royal family, dished out their opinions on how secluded their life could turn out to be.

An attempt to move away from prying eyes of the British press may not be so successful. Interest in the couple's personal affairs has been a constant, no matter which part of the world they reside in. Moreover, the US media also does extensive coverage of the royal family whenever they can chance upon it. In case the royal couple does manage to live a secluded life, it will be a big loss for the media fraternity and perhaps, that is where the hysteria stems from.

After watching the special, many people on Twitter consider it "interesting" for the reporters to say the couple would be punished. They also feel that without the media coverage, interest in their lives will slowly fade away.

"I find it interesting that reporter after reporter has said point-blank that #HarryandMeghan would be punished for not letting the media in (including statements made a few weeks ago when Betty was supposedly blindsided) yet no one is taking the Royal Rota to take..why is that?" a tweet read and another said, "Without the media, I doubt any of us would truly give a hoot what #HarryandMeghan are doing with their time. They are a young family with a new baby, surely they have a right to be just that in private? British media is disgusting."

However, if they go to reclaim space in the entertainment industry, reaching out to the media would be essential. Hence, their plans don't really make sense. Most fans of the couple are ready to lend all their support.

One even went on to say, "I'm ready to support #HarryandMeghan in the future. Whether it's making donations to their partner charities, or purchasing items they market to raise funds for causes they identify or promoting & following them or their patronages on social media. Can't wait to see what they do!"

The special produced by TMZ aired on Fox on January 29, 2020, at 8 pm ET.
