When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in 2018 both of them knew it was going to be difficult but two years later Harry and Meghan are ditching Merru Old England for a life with little Archie in distant Canada, and now there are rumors that they are moving to Los Angeles, and that she is looking for a professional agent.
What happened to drive them to such a drastic change in lifestyle and location? Most likely it was several things.
When Meghan and Harry married the paparazzi were already trailing her because photographs of the Duchess were in high demand but once Meghan decided not to cooperate and provide access the tabloids turned on her. She and Archie both became the target of racist tabloid publishers who began a systematic attack on them when they came to realize that Meghan was not going to give them the photographs that they need to sell copies of their tabloids.
When Princess Diana was alive, photographs of her were selling for an astounding $100,000.00. The paparazzi were getting rich and the publishers were getting richer. Photographs of the Princess on vacation with Dodi Fayed, just before her death, were the most sought after photographs in history. The Princess was attempting to get some control of the situation by limiting access and secretly telling favored paparazzi where she would be at specific times. Unfortunately the pursuit of those photographs led to her tragic death and there is no one more aware of this than her children.
Once Prince William married and started a family he and his wife made sure that their images would not be splattered all over the tabloids every day by living behind the iron and steel gates of their very private heavily guarded homes. The only photographs the public sees of William and Kate are the ones taken at public events they attend where there are also invited photographers. At this time, The Queen, Prince Charles, his wife Camilla, his son William, and wife Katherine and their children live in a royal bubble that up until recently included Harry, but when he married Meghan she encountered a lot of hostility because she was divorced, because she was an American, mostly because she was of mixed race.
Meghan is very probably more adept at expressing herself than her husband and she quickly let everyone know that she wasn’t pleased with the situation and neither was Harry. They decided that they wanted a different life that the one that was forced upon them by their family.
When they decided to spend Christmas in Canada, the tabloids went berzerk. Hundreds of paparazzi descended on Vancouver but found few opportunities to capture photographs. The tabloids had nothing and they were forced to use old photographs and no doubt, sales were affected.
