When you are a member of the British Royal Family, you are always in the spotlight. If you are Meghan Markle, the first bi-racial divorced independent princess, the spotlight shines the brightest.
Becoming a member of the British Royal Family is one of prestige, luxury and status. It also means you forfeit your independence, way of life, identity, internet, career and the majority of your friends.
Although it is well documented Meghan Markle knew what she was giving up to become the Duchess of Sussex, she may have underestimated the price she paid to be a blue blood.
In the wake of the Prince Harry’s and the Duchess of Sussex last week’s announcement to scale back from their royal duties for a life of independence, it has prompted Queen Elizabeth to call a family council to discuss the future role of the Duke and Duchess.
The Queen will preside over the “Knives Out” gathering to be held at the family estate in Sandringham and will be attended by Prince of Wales Charles and Duke of Cambridge William and the man of the hour himself, Prince Harry.
