Why Meghan Markle Is Believed To Become 'Bigger Than Princess Diana'
Princess Diana was notoriously known for breaking rules and being one of the most rebellious members of the family. While the Princess was still alive, she garnered so much attention from the media that not a single day passed without her name being reported. Now, judging by all the attention coming from the press on Meghan Markle, palace insiders are starting to believe that Meghan Markle could become ‘bigger than Princess Diana.’
In fact, insiders are claiming that their move to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor had to do with more than just their need for privacy. Apparently, the couple who are expecting their first child any day now made the decision in an attempt ‘to keep them out of the limelight.’ Speaking of Baby Sussex, we’re also going to talk about why some royal fans believe the baby’s been already born! Let’s start.
THE SUSSEX'S CAN'T ESCAPE THE ATTENTION
Meghan, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, officially made the move earlier this month. After saying their goodbyes to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the couple moved out of Kensington Palace to live in Berkshire instead. Although a feud was claimed between the two couples numerous times, creating a storm in the media, royal insiders assured the public that the claims were utterly false. Now, palace officials are ‘worried’ about not being able to harness the amount of global attention on Harry and Meghan.
'They sent them down to Frogmore to try to keep them out to the limelight for a bit. This is doomed to fail. They are worried that Harry and Meghan are going to establish a totally separate enterprise that nobody can get under control,' a source told the Sunday Times.
'There are discussions in palace circles about how do we harness Harry and Meghan and this tremendous global attention they get. How do we draw them back, because laying down the law and ticking them off doesn't work at all.'
A BIG MOVE COULD BE IN THE WORKS
The insider also added that Markle, who worked with charities including World before she met Prince Harry, sees herself becoming a global humanitarian, to the likes of Angelina Jolie. Additionally, the source mentioned that Meghan and Harry are planning on moving abroad. The idea of moving to Canada or Australia was apparently discussed but unfortunately dismissed just as quickly.
However, it looks like the two are trying to work their way around the rules. Instead, the couple could move to Africa for two or three years for a ‘bespoke’ international job that will utilize their ‘rock star’ status, senior courtiers allegedly told the publication. Former British ambassador to the U.S., Sir David Manning, and the Queen’s former private secretary, Lord Geidt, have allegedly drawn up the plans.
The move won’t be happening any time soon, though. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been given some time to settle into their home in Frogmore Cottage with the baby, before officially making the decision about where they should go. Besides, these kinds of things take some time to think through.
Since they’ll effectively be ‘king and queen of a whole separate country’, the decision to move to Australia has been out ruled. Canada has also been kicked off the list, on the grounds that Meghan lived there while filming the legal drama ‘Suits.’
WHY AFRICA MIGHT BE THEIR FINAL CHOICE
Even though the decision won’t be made until at least next year, Africa will most likely be their choice because of the couple’s ties there. The place clearly holds a special place in the pair's hearts. In fact, this is where Harry and Meghan marked their first year together. On Meghan’s 36th birthday, Harry took Markle to his favorite luxury camp, Meno a Kwena in Botswana to mark the special event.
Thanks to their new Instagram account, fans were able to get a unique look into their 2017 trip through beautiful pictures. Their Royal Highnesses were helping Dr. Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders, who is working to protect elephant populations by tracking their movements.
It was also rumored that Harry proposed to Meghan in Botswana. Interestingly enough, Meghan’s engagement ring includes a center diamond that is customary to the country, which is cushioned by two smaller diamonds taken from Princess Diana’s collection.
When questioned about the reports and about the pair possibly moving, a spokesman for the royal family didn’t deny them and said: 'Any future plans for The Duke and Duchess are speculative at this stage. No decisions have been taken about future roles. The Duke will continue to fulfill his role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.'
HAS BABY SUSSEX ALREADY BEEN BORN?
The arrival of the royal baby is expected to come any day now - but what if it’s already been delivered? Some royal fans are speculating that Meghan Markle might have already given birth. Although its speculation, for now, we do now for a fact that Prince Harry and Meghan are going to be as private as possible about the big day.
Even though Meghan and Harry are understanding of the excitement that surrounds their bundle of joy, the couple has asked for privacy. The Palace released an official statement saying that the couple has made the decision to keep the plans regarding Baby Sussex’s birth private. The statement said,
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby.
Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”
