The Duke and Duchess of Sussex relocated to California after stepping back from their senior royal duties in March 2020. Aside from the major move shocking the world, it was what came next that left the public speechless.

Ever since starting their lives anew in the U.S., Harry and Meghan have been airing out their dirty laundry with the royal family in tell-all interviews, where they accused royal members of racism, claimed the palace failed to help the mother-of-two when her mental wellbeing was at jeopardy and confirmed tension was certainly high within the family behind closed doors.

"Both couples found it hard," said the source of Harry, Meghan, Prince William and Kate Middleton. "They were in a stoic spirit of just getting through it for the Queen."
