You can't fault anyone for having a hard time right now, even if they're ex-royals. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially left their roles as senior royals on March 31, smack in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. From there, they moved from Vancouver Island in Canada to a compound in Los Angeles, and now they're sheltering in place. Welcome to civilian life!
“I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but yes, I’ve been in touch, though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging just now,” she said.
“It is exciting for them to mark the end of the transition and the official start of their new chapter," the source explained.
This new chapter was written when the couple released a dramatic declaration in January about their decision to step back from their duties as senior royals.
"After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution," the Instagram statement read. "We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen."
The pair wanted distance from royal life, but this may be way more social distance than they bargained for.
