Megan Markle and Prince Harry are currently touring Africa, raising awareness of some of the country's charities and making many new friends. Traveling, while definitely not a celebration for the royal couple, is a pleasant break from all the criticism they have encountered over the past few months.
It was a historically bad summer for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they suffered one round of bad press after another. The negativity was so bad that it made some royal observers wonder whether Prince Harry and Duchess Megan could actually leave the royal family.
Megan Markle and Prince Harry were abused by the media
Prince Harry has been loved by the public since he was a baby. When his mother, Princess Diana, tragically died in 1997, royal fans became even more fond of redhead.
Although he had undergone certain acts and abuses as a teenager and young man, Prince Harry always seemed to return to the good grace of society. That's right, until she met and married American actress Megan Markle. The press immediately feels a strong dislike for Markle and the actress Costumes actress begins to receive a negative press attack.
Eventually Prince Harry is seen in the drama and also begins to become a target. In the summer, the prince was firmly entrenched in promoting environmental awareness, while undertaking several environmentally friendly private jet flights. The couple were also hammered by their decision to keep their son Archie Harrison out of the spotlight, allowing a handful of photos to be released. According to critics, royalty who make money from taxpayers' money should not be so adamant about privacy.
Can Prince Harry and Megan Markle Leave the Royal Family?
The summer ended with a thunder for Prince Harry and Markle as the Duchess ended her maternity leave and the family traveled to Africa to work with various charities on earth. However, royal observers look to the future and wonder just how a string of bad press hit the couple.
Recently, a royal expert stated that it was entirely in the right of Markle and Prince Harry to "dig" royal life and move away from their privileged life. The expert said there was some precedent for this, as Princess Diana herself resigned herself to her royal duties after a period of intense scrutiny.
However, even if Prince Harry and Markle have the right and ability to distance themselves from royal life, they seem very unlikely to do so. After all, they have access to the kind of life that most people could only dream of. In addition, they are able to do very well in their high positions, which they may otherwise fail to fulfill.
What's next for Prince Harry and Megan Markle?
Next week, Prince Harry and Markle will continue their tour of Africa, working with various charities and meeting with dignitaries to raise awareness among the various organizations. The tour got off to a good start with some of Baby Archie Harrison's most extensive footage and photos that the public has yet seen.
It is very possible that this journey will turn the tide of negative publicity and allow the public to see them in a whole new, positive light. By the time Prince Harry and Markle return to England, they could return to more fans than ever.
