Will Megxit take Meghan through Diana’s fate? The resemblance is uncanny. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shift permanently to the US to live Princess Diana’s dream!
As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially bid adieu to their royal roles, Meghan and Prince Harry seem to be hopeful for the future. They start a new chapter in their life after ending their roles as the senior working members of the Royal Family on March 31, 2020.
If one passionately looks for a message behind every fiasco, every rumour, and every narrative propagated by the media, it isn’t really hard to find it.
They say compassion lives on forever, kindness is immortal, and that freedom is like elixir.
Princess Diana lived and breathed these. It is not the Prince Harryhat will take her legacy forward, it is the Meghan Markle that will seemingly take forward the legacy of the equally independent, compassionate, and kind Princess Diana.
The Royal Couple In Transit
The royal couple flew down from Vancouver islands in Canada to Los Angeles in the US just before the flights were shut down due to a global pandemic. Amidst all the hassle accompanying the transition, what made news was Trump’s tweet regarding the couple’s security cost.
Trump tweeted — “I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”

Earlier, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had been speculated to pay for the couple’s and their son’s intermittent security.
However, the couple responded to Trump’s tweet clarifying that their personal security has been sorted out and that they do not expect the US government to pay for it.
While Megxit created quite a buzz in the media, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have successfully signed off from royal duties and shifted to the US with their son Archie.
Rumour has it that the two are in talks to buy a Malibu mansion worth $20mn.
Realising Princess Diana’s California Dream
For those who didn’t know, princess Diana had plans to move to Malibu with Dodi Fayed. Guess, the son and the daughter-in-law will live her california dream.
In an interview from 2007, the Royal Butler Paul Burrell recalled, ‘She said,
This is our new life, just won’t it be great, think of the lifestyle the boys — nobody’s judgmental here in America, you don’t have the class system, you don’t have the establishment.
Meghan Markle Is A Mirror Image Of Princess Diana
It is not new that independent, feisty, and charitable Meghan has been compared to the gorgeous, independent, and equally charitable princess Diana. Like Diana, Meghan does not believe in hierarchy, class system, and establishments. Furthermore, the couple’s decision to ditch royal security guards mirrors that of Diana’s.
The couple has been disappointed with how they’ve been treated by the media. Prince Harry even expressed distaste at how his wife is covered in tabloids to how his mother used to be. Every single step that Lady Diana took, made headlines all across the globe — be it for charity or deeply personal reasons.
I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.” expressed Prince Harry.
The media has constantly acted as a catalyst to a negative narrative for Meghan. While Diana met a tragic end being chased after by the paparazzi, we sure hope Meghan doesn’t ever get to walk down Princess Diana’s fate.
What’s In Store For The Future Though?
Now that the couple has shifted to the US, Meghan Markle has been bracing herself to start working with Netflix and Disney on certain projects.
Rumour has it that she has asked her agent to help her bag the role of a superhero in studios like Marvel and Warner Bros, Pictures.
However, the question is whether this lifestyle will suit the ex ‘Royal Family‘. Sure, Harry has been an ideal partner and supported his wife in every way possible, but will he be fine with her working intensely in Hollywood later in the future too?
The reality of it all will take some time to sink in, we believe. The kind of public scrutiny and violation of privacy, that these two are in for in future, should hopefully not put their marriage on the rocks. They’ve come a long way. The couple must hopefully have been prepared for the worst and the best when they decided to go ahead with the official royal split.
Meghan Markle, Princess Diana and Prince Harry are tied together with fate. Who’ll carry the legacy ahead?
