MEGHAN MARKLE is feeling “much less stressed” after quitting royal life for Canada, a source has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are walking away from royal duties and setting up home in Canada. And Meghan is apparently feeling “much less stressed” following the move.
A source told US magazine People: “It was just this tremendous shift when Meghan returned to Canada. You could tell that she felt so much less stressed.”
Prince Harry and Meghan, who was based in Toronto when she was an actress in Suits, are currently staying in a luxury £10 million mansion on Vancouver Island with their son Archie.
They are “enjoying living a quiet life”, according to an insider.
The insider added: “They go for long walks, they do yoga, and Meghan cooks.
“They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.”
The Sussexes revealed plans to step back as senior royals in a bombshell statement last month.
It came after they spent six weeks out of the spotlight over Christmas.
Meghan and Harry had hoped for a dual role but the plan was deemed unworkable.
Following crisis talks to negotiate their future direction, the Queen said she was “pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family”.
The Sussexes are dropping their HRH styles in exchange for financial freedom.
Harry addressed the royal saga, which has been dubbed Megxit, in an emotional speech in January, insisting he had “no other option” but to leave the monarchy.
Speaking at an event for his charity Sentebale, Harry said: “Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited, we were hopeful, and we were here to serve.
“For those reasons, it brings me great sadness that it has come to this.
“The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly.
“It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges.
“And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.
“What I want to make clear is we’re not walking away, and we certainly aren’t walking away from you.
“Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible.
“I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am.
“But I hope that helps you understand what it had to come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.”
