When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced in January 2020 that they would be stepping down from their roles as senior royals within the royal family, they shocked the world. Since then, the couple has made their home in California and even welcomed their second child, Princess Diana, who is named after Queen Elizabeth and Harry’s mother.
Sarah Ferguson, who had long since disassociated herself from the royal family following her divorce from Prince Andrew, was close to Diana. She also recently revealed how she believes Diana would have reacted to Harry and Meghan’s royal departure.
The royal family is still dealing with the fallout from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure.
People were stunned when Harry and Meghan announced their royal departure in January 2020. It did not, however, have the same impact on the public as it did on the royal family. There were rumors of tension between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton at the time, but they were unfounded beyond “anonymous sources.” But the focus quickly shifted to Harry and Prince William.
During Harry and Meghan’s trip to South Africa in 2019, Harry revealed that he and his brother were having some issues, fueling even more rumors. In the majority of cases, the media favored William and Kate over Meghan and Harry. The media — and the rumors — eventually became too much for Harry and Meghan, and they stepped down.
Sarah Ferguson recently stated that Princess Diana would be “proud” of Harry and Meghan’s choice.
Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson has previously spoken out about Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down, and she appeared to be happy for the couple as they settled into their new life in America. Fergie also revealed how she believes Princess Diana would have felt about Harry and Meghan’s decision to start a new life together in a recent interview.
“I believe Diana would be very proud of her sons, and I believe they are exceptional boys with exceptional wives and fabulous children, so I believe she would say, ‘Yes!’” Ferguson told The Independent in an interview.
Diana would be “very proud” of Harry and William for “standing tall and firm,” according to Fergie.
“They remind me a lot of her, and I believe she would be proud of them.”
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not yet returned to the United Kingdom as a family. Harry and Meghan have been living in the United States for over a year, but they have not yet returned to the United Kingdom as a family. Harry has returned on his own two times: once to attend Prince Philip’s funeral and once with his brother to unveil a statue of Princess Diana. During both outings, Meghan was pregnant and at home with her new daughter Lilibet Diana.
Because the pandemic is still affecting travel, it’s unclear when Harry and Meghan will return to see Harry’s family. The couple’s youngest child has yet to be met by the royal family. As of March 2021, Harry and his father, Prince Charles, were still at odds.
