For years, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, seemed to be the most popular royalty. Although Prince Harry himself was a senior working king, he usually appeared with his brother and daughter-in-law, and even earned a reputation as “the most famous third wheel in the world.” When Harry married American actor Megan Markle, suddenly all eyes were on the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex. That doesn’t mean Harry didn’t have a huge fan base anymore, but in recent years, almost everything he and Megan do has been breaking news.
As the future spouses of a king and queen, William and Kate will always have a special place in the hearts of fans around the world. Over the years, they have touched the lives of so many people, which more than explains why thousands line the streets to see them when they appear. Although the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are receiving a tremendous amount of positive attention, Prince Harry and Megan Markle have just proven that they will always be more popular than William and Kate.
Megan and Harry are no longer forced by the royal family
Being a member of the royal family sounds like a fairy tale to almost everyone, but the truth is that sometimes it is quite difficult. Royals are expected to follow a long list of rules and protocols, as shown by Harper’s Bazaar, and the work schedule for elderly family members can become quite demanding. Add to the unfair treatment of the media that royal families like Megan and Harry have received, and being the center of attention is anything but easy. For several years, Megan and Harry were bound by the confines of royal life and grew up very unhappy and frustrated. In early 2020, the couple announced that they would retire as working family members, and now that they have finally settled in California with their young son to begin their solo journey, they are even more popular, especially now that Megxit is final. We can only imagine how happy the Duke and Duchess of Sussex must be to no longer feel compelled by the royal family.

Almost every royal fan at this point knows that Megan and Harry have recently made a huge deal with Netflix. In fact, the “huge” is somewhat understated, as the deal costs $ 100 million. So what does a partnership involve? Well, for several years, the Duke and Duchess will produce content such as children’s shows, movies, screenplays and more, according to The New York Times. They are sure to do amazing things that will delight their fans, and Megan is definitely no stranger to the entertainment industry. While the Duchess has no plans to return to her acting days, she and Harry said in a statement that “their focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope”, they seem to have planned amazing things!

After all, they do what makes them happy, they are young, famous, rich, and they also have big dreams and goals.
