After spending more than a year away from the royal castle, royal scholar Tina Brown said that the impending passing of the Queen might prompt Prince Harry to return to his childhood home, which would result in the Prince and his wife having a long-distance marriage.
Since the day he was born, every aspect of Prince Harry’s life has been meticulously examined. He is not only a member of the royal family but also the youngest son of Diana, who is widely regarded as one of the most beloved royal princesses.
Following his marriage to Meghan Markle, an American divorcee and actress with African-American roots, over the course of the years, Prince Harry has developed from a rebellious teenager who scorned palace protocols into a family man who is now the father of two children. This change occurred as a direct result of his union with Markle.
This is not the first time that the palace has seen a relationship develop between an unexpected pair of people. Harry’s love story is the most courageous, despite the fact that it follows a pattern that is identical to that of Princess Margaret’s love interest, who was a divorcee (they never married), and Prince Charles’ matchmaking with a 20-year-old virgin.
In 2018, the Queen granted her approval to her grandson’s marriage to a Hollywood celebrity and to his divorce from his one-time multiracial wife, providing more evidence that the monarchy’s primary objective is to continue existing in some form.

Prior to their first encounter, neither Harry nor Markle had any prior knowledge of the past of the other. Despite the fact that they hailed from two completely different worlds, there was an instant connection between their hearts the moment they laid eyes on one other.
They went on their first date after being set up by a mutual acquaintance, and after that first night together, their relationship blossomed into one of the most famous and widely discussed love stories in human history!
After a few more months had passed, Harry finally presented his new girlfriend to his family. Following the approval of the lover boy’s family members, the lover boy stunned his American girlfriend by bringing her to his house at Kensington Palace and proposing to her there.
Following the public announcement of their engagement on November 27, 2017, Britain’s Prince Harry and his fiancee, American actress Meghan Markle, posed for a portrait in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in west London.
It was such a captivating moment as an excited Markle hardly waited for him to complete asking before responding with an enthusiastic yes. Harry fondly remembers the moment when the two of them shared an embrace just before he revealed the breathtaking gem. Harry fashioned the engagement ring to his specifications.
It was a golden band with two rocks that belonged to Diana on the sides and a diamond from Botswana in the middle. Markle understood the design to be Harry’s attempt to show his thoughtfulness. After they first met, the pair went on a camping trip in Botswana, which helped strengthen their love and gave them an unforgettable experience.
It was incredible for him to have a precious stone from the nation in addition to the two that had been passed down from his mother when she passed away. The couple’s expressions conveyed an overwhelming sense of satisfaction and self-assurance in their choice to be married. Harry said that he was ecstatic, and his soon-to-be wife described her mood as “quite delighted.”

Markle displayed her engagement ring while the couple was there.
Because of the differences in their upbringings and personalities, it was clear that the relationship between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be more prone to incidents of drama than that of his elder brother, Prince William’s, relationship with Kate Middleton.
An insider’s opinion was that the couple is “addicted to drama,” and experts compared Harry’s temperament to that of his maternal relatives, the Spencers, who have been described as a “hot-headed, impetuous family with a lot of swashbuckling drama.” The Spencers are Harry’s mother’s side of the family.
They referred to them as the Windsors in comparison to William and Kate because they were constantly attempting to put out the fire and were slow to start any kind of controversy.

One of these tragedies came when, at the beginning of the new year, they startled the world and their relatives by announcing that they were leaving the royal family.
The pair expressed their anguish in a message that they uploaded on their Instagram account, and they went on to say that the decision was unavoidable.
Tina Brown, a scholar who works for the royal family, felt that the pair should have gone in a more dignified manner rather than the unexpected prank they executed.

Brown also said that a member of the royal staff confided in her that everyone knew that Harry would leave the palace at some point due to his nature; he was never content living there. The manner in which it took place, on the other hand, did not feel quite right.
Following their departure, the pair sat down for an open and candid discussion with Oprah Winfrey, during which they discussed their time spent in the royal palace.
Racism was cited as one of the few reasons the couple provided for their departure. At first, it was a diversity issue since she did not meet someone with a background that was comparable to hers, but as time went on, the actress started to feel separated from the rest of the cast and crew.

She attempted to get assistance from the palace, but they turned her down, and the idea of being turned away from the place she had called home drove her to take her own life.
After taking everything into consideration, Harry and Markle came to the conclusion that it would be best for their children to live a life apart from the monarchy. They had just become parents to their son Archibald, and they did not want him to see them being restricted in any way.

Brown stated their sudden choice was a “disaster all around” in the same interview. He called it a “disaster all around.” She claims that neither Harry nor the royal family benefited in any way by their departure.
Brown went on to say that Markle had failed to advise her spouse in the proper manner, which led to the conclusion that it was a poor choice. She did say, however, that their departure left a void in the family that no one else could ever replace since they were the shining lights of the group.
The author also discussed how Harry nearly succeeded in replacing his mother’s position in the hearts of the British people, and how he was finally welcomed by everyone after bringing his wife with him.

Brown believes that now that things have gone bad, and they are no longer around the palace to wave at the crowd and bring on their star power, it will affect the crown badly, especially since the Queen is frail and aging; people would not feel fulfilled seeing Prince Andrew waving in the place of them. Brown thinks this will affect the crown badly.
Even though Harry, his father, and his brother no longer speak to one another, the Prince still maintains a strong connection with his grandmother.

During a recent interview, he dodged the question of whether or not he missed his family back in Britain, but he did say that he keeps in regular contact with the Queen.
On the other hand, Harry has said that he is not quite sure whether he would go to the nation in June to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. According to him, the United States is now home, and he is completely overwhelmed by the continuous security rows at the Home Office of the United Kingdom.
This year will mark Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, making her the longest reigning monarch in British history. The celebration of this milestone will take place in 2018. She has been a part of the government for seventy years, during which time it has been headed by a number of different prime ministers.
Brown was of the opinion that when the Queen passed away, the British people would go through a period of identity crisis. She went on to say that if this was the case, then Harry’s presence in the nation would be evidence of his slavery.

As a result, Harry would go to England all by himself given that his wife dislikes the country. Because of this departure, the pair will likely engage into a commuter arrangement in order to maintain their marriage despite the distance between them.
Brown has come to the conclusion that Charles, as an exemplary leader who has spent a significant amount of time working in the palace, is the best candidate to succeed Queen Elizabeth II on the throne. He believes this because Charles possesses the experience that comes from having served in this capacity.
Brown is unwavering in his assertion that he is a superior leader than William, who is next in line to the throne, despite the fact that many people have negative perceptions of his ability to lead and that his popularity is significantly lower than that of the Queen.

The researcher for the royal family also said that Prince Charles has always lived in the shadow of his mother. Brown noted that the future king has always lived in the shadow of his mother and son, despite the fact that the queen continues to have faith in her husband’s ability to govern.
She said that people would prefer wait to hear about the Queen, and when it should have been ended, after his reign, it would have been more enticing to hear about his sons’ lives and brides.
