Prince Harry gets a second job in the USA

Prince Harry, who gave up his royal duties with his wife Meghan Markle last year, became a member of the commission on combating misinformation at the Aspen Institute of America. This is reported on the website of the institution.

“The three co-chairs will be joined by 15 members of the commission from across the political spectrum, including Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, co-founder of [a non-profit organization] Archewell,” the statement said.

The Aspen Institute is an international non-profit organization dedicated to humanitarian research. A message posted on the institute’s website says that the commission, which included Harry, “will fight the influence and problem of disinformation in all aspects of modern society.”

On March 23, The Wall Street Journal reported that Prince Harry took a senior position in one of the Silicon Valley startups — the company BetterUp. In particular, he intends to engage in coaching.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan announced their renunciation of royal powers and their departure from the royal family last winter. Together with his wife, he moved first to Canada, and then to the United States. In October 2020, the couple founded the Archewell Foundation.

Queen Elizabeth stripped Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of royal privileges

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle resigned early last year and left England, they signed a contract with Buckingham Palace as non-working members of the royal family. The contract, which expires on March 31, granted the couple royal privileges. The couple had planned to come to London for talks with Queen Elizabeth to extend the contract, but today it was announced that the Queen has decided to deprive Harry and Meghan of royal privileges.

This means that Harry will be suspended from a number of official positions, including the post of captain-General of the Royal Marines. In addition, Harry will be banned from wearing military uniforms and medals for his service in Afghanistan. As for Meghan, she will have to give up her role as patron of the National London Theatre.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty the Queen that they will not be returning as acting members of the Royal Family,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. — After the conversation with the Duke, the queen wrote a letter confirming that having retired from working in the royal family, it is impossible to continue to perform the duties of a member of the royal family. Thus, the honorary military appointments and royal patronages belonging to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be returned to Her Majesty, and then distributed among the working members of the royal family. All members of the royal family are saddened by the decision of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, but they remain very much loved by the family.”

In return, Harry and Meghan offered their support to the organizations they previously represented, regardless of their official role. Whether the organizations will agree to support the spouses is not yet reported.

The day before, Harry and Meghan announced that they are expecting their second child. According to insiders, the couple was worried about this pregnancy, since Markle suffered a miscarriage last summer. Megan revealed this in a heartfelt essay for The New York Times.

On March 7, the couple will give a candid interview to Oprah Winfrey, in which they will talk for the first time about their marriage, Meghan’s pregnancy, as well as about the reasons for leaving the royal family and moving to the United States.

How did the royal family react to the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their second child?

Meghan and Harry’s relationship with the rest of the royal family have become more strained since the couple resigned and left for the US.

The royal family commented on the news that 36-year-old Prince Harry and 39-year-old Meghan Markle will become parents for the second time. A statement released by the royal family said that Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince William, and the rest of the royal family are thrilled and wish Harry and Meghan all the best.

Recall that a year ago, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex resigned their powers and left England. Soon after, the coronavirus pandemic began, causing Meghan and Harry to not see any members of the royal family for many months. There were rumors that their relationship with the family had deteriorated, in particular, Harry began to communicate much less with his older brother, although they were always very close.

“Since Harry’s separation from the family, he and William have almost stopped communicating,” said royal biographer Omid Scobie. — They haven’t seen each other for a long time, and they’re getting more and more distant. It will take them a long time to build a relationship.”

We hope that the birth of a child will unite the families.

Interestingly, Meghan announced her pregnancy on Valentine’s Day — as did Princess Diana, who announced her second pregnancy 37 years ago. A few months later, Harry was born.

In the photo shared by Harry and Meghan, a pregnant Markle is wearing a custom-made Carolina Herrera dress. Thus, the Duchess once again reminded of the importance of conscious consumption, since this dress she wore in her first pregnancy.

Recall that a few months ago, Markle wrote a heartfelt essay for The New York Times, in which she admitted that she suffered a miscarriage last summer. “The loss of a child is almost unbearable grief, which many people experience, but which few people talk about,” Megan shared. — My husband and I found that out of a hundred women in the ward, ten to twenty had suffered a miscarriage. Despite the generality of this overwhelming pain, the subject of miscarriage remains taboo and is accompanied by unfounded shame and lonely grief.”

Meghan Markle will not travel to the UK with Prince Harry

Recently, it was reported that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are planning to return to the UK to reunite with the royal family for the first time after their move to the United States. Elizabeth II invited them to the official celebration of her birthday, which is scheduled for June 12. However, now the arrival of Meghan Markle is in question.

The decision of the Duchess of Sussex not to accompany Prince Harry on the trip is not at all connected with a dismissive attitude towards upcoming events. These are personal and practical considerations for the couple – they would like to avoid embarrassing situations with the royal family. In addition, such a decision by the spouses will save officials from the ambiguity in building communication with Meghan Markle. In addition, it is not yet entirely clear whether it will be possible to come to the UK, as the situation with COVID-19 is unpredictable.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were planning to attend key royal events in June. In addition to celebrating the Queen’s 95th birthday, there are plans to celebrate Prince Philip’s 100th birthday. Also in July, Harry is due to arrive in England for the unveiling of a monument to Princess Diana at Kensington Palace, which was ordered by brothers William and Harry. In connection with such events, there was concern that the appearance of a couple would cause public and media excitement, which could distract from the importance of the events.

Meghan Markle won the court

The court of England has satisfied the claim of Meghan Markle against the photo agency Splash News. The Duchess was outraged by the pictures taken by the paparazzi during her walk with her son in a Vancouver park. Now the agency has pledged not to photograph the spouses and their son without prior agreement. A similar lawsuit against the US subsidiary of Splash News is currently pending in a British court.

But that’s not all of Megan and Harry’s claims to the paparazzi. They also sued reporters who took pictures of Archie in the yard of their own home using drones. In addition, Meghan Markle’s lawsuit against the British media is still pending in court.
