Palace is a ‘lot calmer’ without Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ‘kicking off’,’ source claims

Buckingham Palace is a ‘lot calmer’ without Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ‘kicking off,’ a source has claimed. 

The Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, stepped down as senior royals in March, last year and moved to the US where their son Archie, where they are now living in a $14 million mansion in California. 

And with Prince Andrew being removed from all duties following the scandal surrounding his friendship with paedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, The Firm have been left without three working royals.   

‘One of the main issues with Harry and Meghan when they were part of the working family was their inability to understand how things worked,’ a source claimed, according to The Mirror

‘It’s been a lot simpler without them kicking off over why they couldn’t just do what they wanted. ‘Things are a lot calmer.’

While Prince Charles is reportedly working out how things will look with future engagements following his father Prince Philip’s death last Friday, aged 99, it’s thought Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, who has been hailed as the royal family‘s ‘secret weapon’ at a time of turmoil, will be stepping up to help. 

Other support will come from the Duchess of Cornwall, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Anne. 

Writing for Town & Country, royal journalist and author Victoria Murphy told how Sophie, wife of Prince Edward, the Queen’s youngest son, has become a stalwart member of the royal family thanks to her down to earth nature and quietly assured approach to her royal duties.  

‘Her work does not regularly receive the kind of media attention that the younger royals command, but Sophie, now 55, has become a stalwart member of the “firm”,’ Murphy wrote, adding: ‘The spotlight on Sophie has intensified in the vacuum left as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle step back.’
