“The word is that they think they’ve been really unlucky,” said a source one day after they were seen out last week.

Between COVID-19, economic troubles and the deaths of Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II, the couple, according to the source, has credited these hurdles for preventing them from reaching the success they envisioned when they walked away from their senior royal duties in 2020.
