In a recent swirl of rumors, speculations have emerged about the state of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s marriage. RadarOnline reported on Tuesday that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were taking some time apart. However, an insider close to the couple has categorically denied the breakup rumors, asserting that they are entirely fabricated.
The anonymous source from RadarOnline claimed that Prince Harry, 38, is feeling out of place in Meghan’s “Tinseltown world” and is seeking to “find himself.” They also suggested that the couple’s move to Montecito, California, has put them under financial strain due to the expenses of their lavish lifestyle, including their $14 million mansion and substantial security costs.
Amidst the speculations, a separate tipster informed Deuxmoi that the couple had sold their Montecito mansion, and Prince Harry was living elsewhere. The celeb gossip site responded that they were uncertain about the sale but had heard that Harry was staying in another place in Montecito.
One of the reported factors impacting the couple’s relationship was the failure of their $20 million podcast deal with Spotify. Their “Archetypes” podcast ended after just one season, reportedly due to a lack of compelling ideas. Prince Harry’s pitch for interviews with controversial figures, including Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, allegedly puzzled Spotify executives.
Despite facing public spats and criticism for their various projects, the couple remains firm in denying any troubles in their marriage. While there have been challenges, insiders claimed that the Spotify setback was a significant turning point in their relationship.
Royal expert Daniela Elser pointed out that Meghan Markle, 41, is keen on establishing her own brand and making her mark professionally, potentially leading the couple on divergent paths.
For now, Prince Harry has plans to return to Africa solo for a new Netflix documentary, which he considers his “second home.” This journey might offer him the space he needs to reflect and find himself, as well as give the couple a chance to regroup.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have two young children, Archie and Lilibet, together, have firmly asserted that the rumors of a breakup are false. Despite the challenges they’ve faced, they remain committed to their marriage and family, as they navigate both their personal and professional lives in the public eye.
