Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are settling into their new lives following the media circus surrounding their decision to step back from the royal family. Now that they’ve come to an agreement with the queen (it includes dropping their royal titles and gaining financial independence), many people are still wondering how they’re going to make things work. But one person who isn’t stressed, according to sources, is Meghan Markle.
Exhibit A: She was photographed earlier this week smiling and hiking with Baby Archie on Vancouver Island. While the family is working on getting tighter about paparazzi and privacy, the images hint that she’s happy having some distance from the bubble that is Buckingham Palace. According to sources who spoke to Us Weekly, she’s really looking forward to going back to work and figuring out professional arrangements to support her family. “Meghan loves the idea of being the breadwinner,” the source said. “She has no plans to do another show like Suits, but Harry’s been encouraging her to do more voice-over work, writing, producing, and directing in her free time.”
A video surfaced in early January of Prince Harry telling Disney CEO Bob Iger at the Lion King premiere in London that she was interested in more voice-over opportunities. Markle, who was raised in California, did tons of different jobs before her acting career took off: She interned at the Argentine embassy and she did a lot of calligraphy work. “She doesn’t come from millions,” another source told Us Weekly. “She’s worked hard to get to where she is today.”
Whatever they decide, it seems that Prince Harry is completely on board with Markle’s plans. “He’s really excited about the next chapter in their lives,” one of the sources explained. Personally, we can’t wait to see what these two do next.
