Then in 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan decided to step back as ‘senior members.’ They also announced that they would be splitting their time between North America and the United Kingdom. However, the move did not stop or even decrease media attention.
And now the newest rumour is that the couple is on the brink of divorce.
Prince Harry and Meghan splitting up: Where are the rumours coming from?
Another rumour is going around concerning the state of the Sussexes marriage and this time it’s about their allegeddivorce.
While everyone was raving about the sweet pictures of the family on the 4th of July, just a couple weeks later, major publications are alleging that the couple is splitting.
On 18 July, Radar Online wrote about how the couple is ‘taking time apart’ in order to ‘heal and rebuild their bond.’
They quote an unnamed source that claims the couple are no longer on the same wavelength and that Prince Harry needs to ‘find himself’ again as he ‘doesn’t fit Meghan’s tacky Tinseltown world.’
Before those rumours in July, there was another one in May 2023 about Prince Harry staying at a hotel instead than at their Montecito Mansion. Of course, none of these rumours are confirmed or commented on by the royals.
Why are the rumours coming back now?
The Sussexes have been facing a lot of hardship in the past couple of months.
Indeed, it was announced that some of their business ventures were failures. In June, their multi-milion deal with Spotify was cancelled and the couple was called ‘grifters’ by a Spotify executive.
Moreover, their Netflix deal was also challenged as, so far, they have failed to produce more than one show for the platform.
Could it be that these business struggles are fueling the divorce rumours? Absolutely.
To come back to tabloid Radar Online, the financial troubles the couple has been facing are mentioned in their articles. Moreover, Page Six, shares words from an unnamed source that Rador Online:
That stress, coupled with their emotional issues, has likely made life a living hell
However, Page Six has also gotten in touch with a source that claims that the split rumours are 'not true' and 'made up.'
