The holidays were a pretty rough time this year for the royal family. Prince Philip had multiple day stay at the hospital dealing with some health issues. The 98-year-old seemed very well on the day of the discharge. Then, of course, there was Prince Andrew and that interview.
Prince Harry and Megan Markle where notably absent from the Queen's holiday celebration which is a long-standing family tradition. They were also notably missing on the Queen's desk. In her majesty's annual Christmas Adress. Where were they exactly?
Where Were They?
According to reports Megan and Harry were on holiday in Canada. Canda is a place that is very dear to their hearts. That is where they first met as the former actress was still filming the show suits. In a country where Prince Harry's grandmother happens to be head of state. A pretty convenient coincidence for the Prince.
It was also reported that Megan's mother was also on the trip. Where they would be found shopping as any normal family would at local convenient stores.
The Royal Split Rumors
In the past decades, we have witnessed quite a few royal couples not reach the till death do us part, part of marriage. Culminating in pretty high profile royal divorces. For months now there has been speculation about a new kind of royal split. The one between brothers. Over the past few months, speculation has grown over a possible rift in the relationship between the brothers. Still in this new year rumors are swirling over the idea that Harry and Megan may even leave their royal duties.
What Would Independence Look Like?
The late Princess Diana always made an effort to ensure that her boys would have a more normal life. That is not an easy thing to do when you are part of the most famous family in the world. In those days Harry was third in line to the British throne. Behind his brother and his father. These days he sits sixth in line to the throne. This could mean that life without royal duties may be a possibility for Harry.
A lot like his uncle Edward VII, Harry married an American divorcee. Of course, his uncle literally gave up the throne to marry. Harry's situation is much different, but the outcome of some of his decisions could be similar. With the couple's increased time in Australia and Canada, a diplomatic post in a country within the commonwealth may not be out of the question for the Duke of Sussex. In those days the former king was named Governor of the Bahamas. Could we see a similar post for Harry in the near future?
