Prince Harry, Meghan Markle 'don't regret' Megxit'; hope 2021 can be 'time of healing'


It’s been a little over a year since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their decision to quit as senior royals, and while the move changed the British royal family forever, they reportedly “don’t regret” it.

Sources close to the couple told People magazine that Harry and Meghan hope that this year can be a “time of healing for their family,” adding that the prince will eventually make amends with his elder brother Prince William as well.

Royal historian Robert Lacey says that Harry felt marginalised by the role of “spare,” noting that the issue of “heir” and “spare” has affected several generations of royal siblings including Queen Elizabeth II and her sister, the late Princess Margaret. Harry “finally found a solution” to it, which was “essentially to get out and start a new life.”
