    In an exclusive interview the veteran snapper revealed he'd suspected the pair may make the jump across the pond after seeing Harry turn into 'a really miserable person' on recent Royal tours.
    And warned the Prince he's 'living in cloud cuckoo land' if he believes the Royals can avoid scrutiny with a move to Canada.

      The British media hates Meghan because Harry and Meghan’s popularity have overtaken the popularity of William and Kate. Wills and Kate may be the future king and Queen of England but they are quite boring. Harry made the best decision for his family.People forgave Harry for his early transgressions because he’s a prince. Diana was right. The paparazzi is hostile both then and now. The paparazzi cost Diana her life. They treated he like a commodity. She was nothing but a way for them to make $$$$$ and sell magazines. Why would a Harry continue to put his wife through that? He sees clearly what is going on. He is not Meghan’s puppet like the British media claim. He is a grown man with a mind of his own. He’s a man who wants to protect his family by any means necessary. And the media just doesn’t like that. He’s taking control away from them.Harry knows what we all know. At the end of the day he will always be a prince 👑. So he can do what he wants.

        Diana must be lying still in her grave.

          08:53 - "Meghan came into this family, I mean she was 38.. 37/38. She was an established actres.. bladibla". So is he saying here that when Meghan came into the Royal family in 2017, when she announced their engagement, she was in fact 38? Meaning she is 41 now lol? That is one thing that has been claimed many times over; that she is pretending to be younger than she really is.

            Why do they keep insisting the queen was blindsided when the queen herself, in one of her statements, said this had been months in discussion. She knew this was coming, they all did. I think the problem is that he didn't do it on THEIR timeline and they way THEY wanted to do it. I do not buy this baloney about the queen not having a clue.

                Megan didn't even try. She couldn't take that Kate overshadows her. She is not part of the senior royal.

                  You have made me fume.
                  If you want to know what the queen and other royals think then ask THEM and not this guessing opinionated man. He is not in their family and he is just guessing. And these “guessing opinions” are harmful.
                  Grow up man. Harry has.
                  Harry grew up, fell in love, got married, had a baby and wants to protect his family. Stop blaming Megan. You as the media killed his mum. He doesn’t want the same to happen to his family. Megan has always had a raw deal from people like you. Bad on you.
                  I for one think Harry is doing the right thing for himself and his family. They are his responsibility and I think you should respect his brave decision.
                  You have no right to accuse her of being an actress when out in public. She has been put on a vicious stage and has done her best. But she never stood a chance with opinions like these. No matter what they do it will always wrong in your opinion.
                  I wish Harry and Megan all the luck in the world.

                    This is because she likely suffers from NPD. You tube: a very royal narcissist. Childhood trauma for some children results in an underdeveloped amygdala, they then grow up to be extremely lacking in empathy, outwardly very charming but secretly horribly controlling and mean.
                    You cannot understand unless you’ve been involved in some sort of narcissistic relationship. It’s very abusive but outwardly they seem so charming. Jesus can heal all but a person first must be humble enough to seek Him.

                      One of the world's most eligible bachelors and rather then marrying someone 10 years younger, he marries someone 3 years old ... when he is 50 and she is 53 ....

                                  If Harry and Meghan, together, spoke honestly and openly in an interview, about their decision to step down, then all this speculation and blame and media hype would hopefully subside.

                                      I can fully understand Harry and Megan's decision to go about their lives in Canada. I think they can have a greater impact and bring about change on many fronts.

                                            Maybe Harry just needs a break to see a different way of life?
                                            This happens to many people, who just want a change and to see life from another perspective.
                                            Nothing wrong with that!
                                            This man doesn’t know all into Megan and Harry’s personal life.
                                            He’s biased..
                                            I have seen articles of racism towards Meghan..
                                            He thinks Harry owes the Royals his life..
                                            I think possibly William and Kate were judgmental towards Meghan and they caused the rift..
                                            That was not really addressed here, other than there is a rift, but why?
                                            Of course he would blame Meghan by guesswork..
                                            That rift could have changed Harry’s whole perspective of being a Royal and disillusionment..

                                                  Omg, seriously...enough with blaming Megan. The brothers have their own family now, it was effing time to leave the nest. Seriously's dammed if they don't and it's dammed if they do. So unfair media mongrels, you can't have it both ways...leave them the hell alone. It's you people who are damming them to hell. They love and are only trying to support each other. It's media and the royals way of life that's going to tear them apart so leave them alone.

                                                    Meghan is isolating Harry from his family, which is a very bad sign of an abusive narcissistic relationship.

Meghan targeted Harry and hunted him down like a piece of "big game". Think Meghan and her mother planned this whole thing and Meghan has spent the last 20 months "brainwashing" him so she could "blackmail" and "terrorize" the Royal Family for millions and millions. Still say, "Prayers up for Harry" to survive all this and come back to be as wonderful as he always was!

He is responsible for his own thoughts and actions. Yet, as I see it, you are still willing to place blame and criticize another for his decisions. He is a part of the Royal Family and will always be. Thankfully Diana gifted him with experiences that impassioned his soal. He has done so much for people where ever he has applied himself. My question is why would he want to stay? Look at what his father has done, it doesn't appear to have stopped with him either. Then take a look at his Uncle. I wouldn't want to align with those people. He has his own luggage to deal with. Let him do so! This is not about his marriage - allow him the path he chooses. This is freedom. He has a desire to get on with his life. He has found love and support from a woman who your society places blame, and YES, racism. No matter the outcome of the relationship, it is Harry's choice. Open your heart and you'll see the insensitivity towards Megan. In addition, there is very little direction for him being a part of the Firm. The Queen has the greatest loss. As it appears today, Harry is following his own path, and this leaves the Queen with few reliable men in her immediate surroundings. I may not agree with all of her politics, yet she has stood the test of time, and with each day she attempts to lead with heartfelt examples.

                                                                                        MM has sucked the joy and life out of Harry. This is a great analysis. Arthur Edwards is a good British journalist and has been following these people since Diana came on the scene. The common denominator that destroyed the bond between Harry, William and Kate was so lovely to see. I know many people miss that. The only thing that changed that with a common denominator was Markle. The only thing that is wrong about what AE says is when he says that Markle was a successful actress. LMAO. She got THE ONE REAL HOLLYWOOD CREDIT she has by opening her legs to a producer, sucking him into her worshipping her (sound familiar?) and then HE GIT HER THE ROLE ON SUITS and once that was done, Markle threw Trevor aside with a letter saying that now she was going on to become “princess Diana 2.0”. This is all disgusting, the only thing maybe more disgusting are Markle’s acting skills. SHE IS A HORRIBLE ACTRESS!!! HER “TRAINING” DID HER NO GOOD, SHE IS AN AWFUL ACTRESS. she barely adds up to a d-list actress. The only reason she has a name and people know her now, IS BECAUSE OF HARRY!!! This whole situation is so messed up!!! Princess Diana would HATE Markle, because of the way Markle is emotionally abusing her son and has torn apart William and Harry etc.

                                                                                        I love his comment of him saying she is a great actress.... in real life basically. She puts on a front when she is out in public. As far as real acting as a professional with cameras on a set, she is AWFUL

Megan wanted the fame the fortune and she got the ultimate dream marrying a prince. But the only thing she didn’t have was control of her decisions . The moment she felt slighted she couldn’t handle it, she said it was either me or the firm. I wonder if Megan planned and Instigated all of this. Getting Harry to fall in love with her maybe he more in love with her than she’s in love with him. Maybe she instigated everything to this point. Could it be her family may know things that the public does not know, even though it’s disgraceful the way they’ve spoken out. Her mother appears to be so distant from the family and we’ve never heard the mother say anything in favour of her daughter. There’s something that’s not completely clear or authentic about Megan. After all she is an actress. Time will tell if Harry made the biggest mistake of his life. I don’t see him returning back to the firm, And if he does the only way he can do it, is without Megan.

I still maintain that Meghan knew what she was getting herself into as evidenced in their engagement video; Harry fully informed her of the thorns and not just the roses. Please watch their engagement video if you’ve never. Sad. 😔
