Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were excited to start a new chapter when they left the royal family in 2020, but now they might be regretting leaving the U.K. in the first place.

“At first they were just so relieved to cut ties with The Firm that they were indifferent to Charlesslimmed-down monarchy plans,” said a source. “They were too busy starting a new life in America.”

Now, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex realize “life on their own is harder than they thought. They’re running out of time if they ever want to reestablish their royal standing," the source added.

The pair left royal life in 2020.

Since Meghan, 42, starred on Suits before meeting Harry, 39, she "knew what it meant to work and struggle, and she had connections in Hollywood," the insider noted.

However, “Harry didn’t know anything about living in the real world, how to run a large household and cost of upkeep, pay for staff and security, or how to start a business. As a royal, everything had been done for him," the insider explained.

Despite the ordeal, the pair are not giving up and continuing to try to get somewhere in Tinseltown.

"It's always been Meghan's dream to build a hugely successful commercial enterprise and she is still convinced even after the Spotify debacle that she has the drive and talent to make this happen," Tom Quinn shared. "The loss of the Netflix contract would be a major blow and one from which it would be all but impossible to recover."

"The last thing Meghan wants is the humiliation of trying to set up a deal with a much smaller company — the way things are going even that might not be a possibility," he added. "Harry and Meghan are on the brink of losing their multi-million-dollar Netflix contract for the simple reason that Netflix expected a great deal more from the couple."
