Prince Harry chose to quit the Royal Family not Meghan Markle, the couple’s new bombshell biography Finding Freedom will reveal.
Harry, 35, is said to be angry at the term ‘Megxit’ because it made it sound like the decision to break away from the Firm was Meghan’s alone, a source told The Sun.
The couple are currently isolating in actor Tyler Perry’s Hollywood mansion with little Archie, one.
The book – to be released on August 11 – promises to offer an ‘honest, up-close, and disarming portrait’ of the ‘confident, influential, forward’ couple.While Meghan was supportive of his choice, she ‘asked him if he was certain it was what he wanted’ multiple times.
Royal biographer Omid Scobie – who co-authored their book alongside Catherine Durand – revealed the couple celebrated their second wedding anniversary with Mexican food and margaritas.
He said they enjoyed a quiet day of celebrations together, joining family and friends on Zoom, and ‘reminisced about what a beautiful and magical day’ their wedding was.
Writing in Harper’s Bazaar, Mr Scobie said the couple chatted with a number of people – including some of the vendors who ‘helped bring the ceremony and reception to life’ -about exchanging their vows in May 2018 at Windsor Castle.
‘They all reminisced about what a beautiful and magical day it was’, a source told the publication, adding that they video-called friends and family’.
Mr Scobie added: ‘And with the Sussexes now based in Los Angeles, it only seemed right to celebrate with a Southern Californian favorite: Mexican food.
‘The couple, who also exchanged cotton-based gifts per tradition, enjoyed a number of favorite dishes together, washed down with margaritas.’
The Mail on Sunday recently revealed that it has been quietly arranged for the couple to start paying rent on the property, beginning last month.
Meghan and Harry are now paying just shy of £18,000 a month to keep Frogmore as their official British base.
It is being described as a ‘rental-plus’ agreement in which they pay more than what the commercial rate would be, enabling them to pay down those building costs with the excess.
One of the reasons Harry and Meghan moved abroad was their wish for privacy and to put an end, as they saw it, to being in the media spotlight.
