Details of life behind the scenes in Kensington Palace continued to surface, with evidence suggesting that Meghan Markle believed that palace insiders were out to ruin her reputation once she had joined the Royal Family.
The UK’s Times secured comments by a friend of Meghan and Prince Harry, who described her feelings as an outsider when the couple moved into the Royal household. Markle was reportedly missing her life in Los Angeles and felt particularly bad at the distance from her mother and friends. Added to this, her American way of life clashed with traditions and requirements in the Palace.
“She convinced there was a conspiracy against her and so she basically put herself in self isolation when she moved to Frogmore,” the friend told the publication. Moreover, abandoning her career continued to dampened her spirits, forcing the decision of the couple to exit royal life.
“One of the things Meghan struggled with was not earning an income,” a friend said. “She has always worked and I think she felt unfulfilled. Having financial freedom was a big part of them wanting to leave. “I think she felt like an outsider from the start. This wasn’t the life she was used to and she wanted out.”
The couple decided to start a new life together in Los Angeles, with rumours circulating that renowned British singer Adele was helping them with their transition.
“Adele loves the neighbourhood. She’s also recommended her 4-year-old son Angelo’s pre-school and discreet places to take Archie where they won’t be bombarded by fans. Meghan and Harry want to see how they get on in the area first before they commit to buying somewhere.”
