Prince Harry & Meghan Markle have ‘no regrets’ over quitting royal life & ‘buoyed’ by public support on final tour – The Sun

PRINCE HARRY and Meghan Markle have "no regrets" about their decision to quit as senior royals, the Sun Online can reveal.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex this week completed their final royal duties before they step down at the end of March.


They bowed out at Westminster Abbey at the Commonwealth Day Service on Monday, their last official appearance as senior royals.

Senior Palace aides say the couple have been "buoyed" by the reaction from the public.

But Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, remain committed to their new lives in Canada.

It comes as The Sun revealed Harry was duped into revealing his thoughts about 'Megxit' to pranksters posing as teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

'MEGXIT' JOY

A source said: "In the last few days people have seen the real Meghan and Harry.

"But their mood and the smiles on their faces is a by-product of the new life they are now making for themselves together.

"They've loved being back and attending the events.

"Naturally after so many weeks of negative headlines there was a bit of apprehension over they may be received.

"But they have been really buoyed by the reaction. If anything it has underlined that they still have a lot of people out there supporting them.

"And they have absolutely no regrets over the path they are taking."

The Duke of Sussex fell victim to a hoax call from two Russian jokers who spoke to him twice on the phone.

Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov posed as 17-year-old eco-activist Greta and her dad during the calls to Harry and Meghan's luxury Vancouver Island home in Canada.

Harry was recorded saying Donald Trump has  “blood on his hands” over his support for the coal industry, and revealed he was "completely separate" from most other royals.

Harry said: "I can assure you, marrying a Prince or Princess is not all it’s made up to be.”

HARRY PRANKED

On the couple's decision to quit the UK, Harry said: “Um, it’s, that’s probably a conversation for another time, there’s lots of layers to it and lots of pieces to the puzzle.

“But sometimes the right decision isn’t always the easy one.

And this decision certainly wasn’t the easy one but it was the right decision for our family, the right decision to be able to protect my son.

“And I think there’s a hell of a lot of people around the world that can identify and respect us for putting our family first.

'SUPERSTAR QUALITY'

“But, yeah, it’s a tricky one, but we will start a new life.”

It comes after days of glowing headlines for the couple.

On Saturday, Harry and Meghan received a standing ovation as they undertook one of their last royal engagements at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Duke and Duchess smiled and held hands as they made their entrance at the Mountbatten Festival of Music, which celebrates the Royal Marines.

It's left some senior Palace aides asking how the couple's "superstar quality" could have benefited the royals if they stayed.

The source added: "The view among many at the Palace is that Harry and Meghan have shown this week what they could have done for the Royal family.

"They have that superstar quality which would have translated to all areas of the world. But everyone respects the decision they have now made.

"The dye has very much been cast."
