With a recent wave of speculation surrounding the marital status of the royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, new reports have emerged suggesting that the two are momentarily ‘taking a breather’ from their marital life. The buzz on the streets and online, chiefly highlighted by the Radar Online report, is that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are presently “pressing pause” on their union to rekindle and fortify their bond after a series of “family complications” seemingly stirred a gap between them.
The report indicates an insider close to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has shared that both personal and cultural disparities have prompted a chasm within their marriage. Allegedly, the royal “doesn’t blend into Meghan’s flashy, Hollywood-styled lifestyle,” as revealed by the source to the news platform.
As part of the speculated hiatus, Prince Harry is believed to be plotting a solitary trip to Africa, where he would work on a documentary project. The unnamed source revealed that this impending journey could be exactly what Harry requires as he regards the African continent as his “sanctuary” and the locale where he feels “most genuine.” In contrast, Meghan Markle is reported to have contracted a new agent to assist her in constructing her own distinctive brand. As noted by royal expert Daniela Elser in her conversation with Radar Online, Markle is ambitiously “seeking to develop her unique brand and generate substantial earnings.” She highlighted, “For the first instance, their professional lives seem to be heading in distinct directions.”
The strain in the couple’s relationship has seemingly heightened in the wake of their $20 million Spotify deal failing to gain expected traction. Additionally, they have encountered certain financial hindrances, which, according to reports, have strained their relationship further. As per the source, “This stress, accompanied by their emotional conflicts, has potentially escalated tensions to unbearable levels. Spending time apart on different continents might be the remedy they need to find whatever it takes to progress,” they asserted.
The end of the couple’s contract with the renowned streaming service Spotify and the discontinuation of negotiations for a second season of their podcast ‘Archetypes’ have added fuel to the fire. Notably, Harry’s unconventional proposal to interview personalities like Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Pope Francis, and Mark Zuckerberg left Spotify executives bemused.
Further rumors, sourced from another undisclosed insider who spoke to the celebrity news outlet DeuxMoi, claim that the couple has offloaded their luxurious Montecito, California residence, with Prince Harry seeking accommodation elsewhere.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in a grand ceremony at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor on May 19, 2018. Despite the swirling rumors and the challenges they’ve faced, the couple’s millions of followers worldwide are hoping for a positive resolution to these rumors.
