The Real Reason Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's "World Is Lonely," Royal Expert Claims
The couple might be making a major change.
Prince Harry grew up surrounded by family and friends in the United Kingdom. Born into the royal world, he was rarely alone and seemed to be one of the most social members of the Royal Family, regularly out in bars and clubs with his circle of close friends. When Harry first started dating Meghan Markle in 2016, his world shifted gears, and he transitioned from one of the most eligible bachelors in the world into a devoted boyfriend, and then husband.
However, the closer Harry and Meghan got, the more he seemed to drift away from the life he had created in the UK. His relationships with his father, Charles, brother, William, and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, also started to shift.
After Megxit, Harry and Meghan almost completely cut off ties with the family and headed to California to start their own, quieter life in Montecito. However, according to new reports, their new "world is lonely," and their inner circle "is small." Here is why.
According to new reports, Harry and Meghan, who are the parents to two children, Archie and Lillibet, are considering adding a third baby to the mix. Why? A few experts maintain that they are lonely in their new life.
A source told The Closer that the couple is hoping that adding to their brood and expanding their family could help with the loneliness resulting from being exiled from the family.
The source maintained that adding "one more to the mix" would be "wonderful" for the couple – which is not something Kinsey Schofield, a royal expert, agrees with, adding that the couple "trust few." "If Harry and Meghan truly are considering a third child, I imagine that it's because their circle is small and their world is lonely," she told the Daily Star.
"They trust few and rely a lot on each other. Meghan has had multiple difficult pregnancies and I really don't think she would even attempt to put her body through that again," Schofield said.
She also added that Harry once said he wouldn't want a big family because of environmental reasons. "Although I'm almost used to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle contradicting themselves, a third child goes completely against what Prince Harry said in a 2019 conversation with chimpanzee expert Jane Goodall for British Vogue," Schofield said.
In the interview, he put a cap on the number of kids he wanted. "He told the activist that he would have two children at the most and blamed his decision on climate change."
Schofield said that once Harry became a father, he started caring about the world even more, and it changed his perspective. "He specifically said that the birth of Archie heightened his awareness of the environment," she continued.
Schofield added that a baby wouldn't solve any of their problems. "I don't think that the addition of another child would heal any existing animosity [between the Sussexes and their royal inlaws]."
"It's been a complicated time, but my husband, ever the optimist, said, 'Now she's reunited with her husband,'" Meghan recently told Variety. "In big moments in life, you get a lot of perspective. It makes you wonder what you want to focus your energy on." "Right now, we feel energized and excited about all of the things we've been building toward. We're also focused on our foundation. So much of the work we do includes the philanthropic space."
