The real reason Meghan Markle and Harry are in a better place with the royal family

If family members are willing to work through their differences and see things from each other's perspectives, most issues can be overcome — that seems to apply to the royals in Britain, as well. The monarchy was thrown into turmoil when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced in January 2020 that they were stepping back from their official roles and duties. While the situation appeared to be quite dire for a while — and included a possible punishment as well as an awkward encounter — the family now seems to be focused on trying to move forward.

"Things are in a better space now between the couple and the royal family," according to a source who opened up to Entertainment Tonight on March 23, 2020. "While of course there have been tensions, the family is getting through it."

This is surely a good thing for Harry who was reportedly having a hard time leaving his family and may have been suffering in the aftermath of Megxit. These days, he's likely feeling pretty darn great if he's adjusting to his new life as well as his wife seems to be.

Meghan Markle has 'never been happier' and it's easy to understand why

Although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle faced a bumpy road when they decided to change up their royal roles, it looks like their tough decision is already paying off. Not only is the situation with the rest of the family apparently smoothing over, but a source told Us Weekly that "Meghan feels free. She has never been happier. She's happy to be out of London."

That's understandable considering the "British tabloids were ruthless to Meghan Markle," per Global News. The former actress, who has experience in the spotlight, admitted during an ITV documentary (via People) that while she was warned before marrying Harry that "the British tabloids [would] destroy [her] life, she explained: "I never thought that this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair." It certainly didn't seem to be fair at all if you take a look at just how differently Markle and Middleton are treated by the press

While this makes it quite clear why the Duchess of Sussex would want to leave England ASAP, the US Weekly insider also acknowledged that Markle "was surprised at how quickly everything happened." That may be the case, but judging by her joy-filled final appearances in Britain with her husband at the beginning of March 2020, these two are definitely ready to begin a new life together with their son, Archie, in their Canadian home

And honestly, who wouldn't be thrilled to live in a $14 million mansion on the water with their very own prince charming?
