‘To stay in the royal system is to go along with subservience to those more senior than you,’ the royal historian said, speaking to People magazine. ‘He has asserted his own identity.’

‘They love that they are able to focus on projects and causes that are important to them. It was always their dream to be financially independent and pay their own way.
‘Harry was finally doing what he’d wanted to do for years, and to have Meghan and Archie with him was all he could have asked for.’
It comes after the Queen’s former press secretary Dickie Arbite claimed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been ‘drip-feeding press’ with content.
The royal expert said he found it ‘extraordinary’ that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made various appearances – despite stepping back as royals in March for more privacy.

Speaking to True Royalty TV’s Royal Beat, the commentator and royal expert said: ‘I find it extraordinary that two people who left basically because they felt press intrusion and yet in the past 12 months we’ve had nothing but drip-feeding the press about things that they’re doing.’
Since moving to the US, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who are currently living in their $14 million mansion in California with their 18-month-old son Archie, have signed a lucrative podcast deal with Spotify worth up to £30million.
The couple are producing and hosting their own shows as part of the newly formed Archewell Audio – which started with a ‘holiday special’ that the couple hoped would ‘uplift audiences around the world’.
Spotify has not revealed what the contract is worth, but the streaming service agreed a £75m ($100m) deal with US comedian Joe Rogan in May.
The Mirror reported the Sussexes would be paid £30million – other sources put it closer to £20million.
The Sussexes’ agreement comes just months after the royals agreed a £100million partnership with Netflix and days after Meghan invested in a $28-per-pack oat-milk ‘superlatte’ business later promoted for free by her LA neighbour Oprah Winfrey.
