Prince Charles and Prince William Didn’t Think the Sussexes Were "Serious" About Leaving

From Cosmopolitan

Remember when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were like lol bye and made the absolutely history-making decision to step down from senior royal duties? And then moved to Los Angeles to live their best lives away from the royal family and the British tabloids? Yeah, well apparently Harry tried to tell Prince Charles and Prince William about his plans, and they didn't think he'd go through with them.

“Harry had been talking to his father and brother,” royal historian Robert Lacey tells Us Weekly. “Saying, ‘Look, we’ve come to the conclusion we quite like Canada. We’d like being on the side of the Atlantic. We think we want to stay here for a bit, but we think we can still say Royal.’”

Apparently, Harry's plan to create the Sussex Royal brand as a “sort of compromise, a new form of … expatriate monarchy” was brushed aside by the family, as was the suggestion that he “could still represent the crown in Canada, [and] all these things,”

“It was sort of offhand,” Lacey continues. “They didn’t quite believe they were serious. It’s [like], ‘Put it down on writing paper or chap, you know, sends us an email and we’ll think about it.’ And we know this cause Harry himself and the other palaces have agreed that, like, this must have happened.”

In other words, Harry tried to tell everyone how he felt. They just didn't listen.
