Why Prince Harry’s Big Royal Exit Was to ‘Protect’ Wife Meghan and Son Archie

While talks continue about the future role of Prince Harry, Meghan and Archie, the Essexes announced their shocking move to step down as senior members of the royal family. Some allege racism, others refer to Diana’s legacy, blaming crass commercialism while yet others blame strict controls. JJ Chalmers, 33 who met Harry, 35, while serving in the military, defended their decision about the royal exit. He’s less the captain in the army, and more a father.

The number one rule is to be a father and a husband says Chalmers, a close friend of Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex. The bombshell decision was made in order to protect his family. The desire is to protect his family, both as a father and as a husband. Chalmers mentions that Harry, as a very principled individual, wishes to set a good example for their 8-month-old Archie when he reviews how the media reacts and how social media callously denigrates someone. Harry grew up in the limelight and knows how it could end, if not handled correctly, referring to Harry’s mother Princess Diana‘s 1997 death in a car crash while escaping from the paparazzi.

Not a Sudden Decision

Apart from Chalmers, Tom Bradby, journalist and author, who is a friend of the couple, said the royal exit created a new war of the Windsors. Bradby who toured Angola, Malawi, South Africa, and Botswana in the fall of 2019 with the royal couple, prepared the emotional ITV documentary ‘Harry & Meghan: An African Journey’, adding it was a declaration of independence. Bradby, who interviewed the couple after their November 2017 engagement at Kensington Palace, hinted that their decision was made long before the actual tour. Many will question leaving behind so much privilege, power, and goodwill. Bradby mentions that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex received shoddy treatment from the British tabloid press.

Prince Harry emotionally reveals his thoughts about the sad fate of his mother, Princess Diana every single time he hears a click, sees a camera, and a flash. Bradby revealed that subtle changes of Buckingham Palace staff were a cause of the decision and confirmed keeping all charity commitments and their Commonwealth work for the Queen but will be resolved after intense negotiations with the royal family.

The New Windsor War?

Some argue the Essexes were too difficult and too independent, but friends feel they have been driven out. Others feel that if the royal family size is to be reduced, this step is long overdue, but complications will continue to remain. Meghan and Harry have discussed their current financial situation on the Sussex Royal website, explaining they no longer receive funding through the Sovereign Grant.

Many question how the couple plan to make a living and how they will finance it. Many have elaborated on their individual net worths and how they can be financially independent as possibilities are endless for them. They need zero in on what they like, what they can identify with and the possibilities of if there is a market for that. A book deal which can provide insight into what life is like as a royal is possible. Many Americans and people throughout the world would welcome that. Another obvious possibility is a talk show.
