“U.K. still home despite plans to spend time in Canada with wife Meghan, he says”

“Prince Harry says he’s saddened by move to step back, but wants ‘more peaceful life'”

 

Translation: He had to do something to end Meghan’s moods and anger at home about “how she was being treated.”

Poor Harry.

She’s an extraordinarily beautiful woman, but all the evidence of her brief time on stage points to a touchy and difficult temperament.

Smiles before the camera. Something very different when the camera is gone and she is not pleased about something.

She brought tensions to the family, even tears – future Queen Consort Kate, a charming woman, is reported to have been reduced to tears by Meghan on at least one occasion.

And this is not a family given to strong expressions of emotion, so Meghan would automatically feel alone or isolated, causing her to lean on and expect more support from Harry.

Meghan is an intensely ambitious woman who thought she wanted to be a Duchess, until she discovered what’s really involved.

Given the way she smiles for the cameras, flicking instantly on like a light bulb when they are pointed at her, I’m pretty sure her vanity loves press attention, but she thinks she’s entitled to receive only the part she regards as positive.

When she found that’s not the way it works and even more when she discovered herself at the center of numerous family conflicts, she picked up her marbles, tossed her tiara, and headed (almost) home.

A comment below asks: “What’s Harry going to do when the princess leaves him?”

An astute observation. Yes, indeed, and I think that’s guaranteed in the not too-distant future.

She’s so temperamental and ambitious, and she’s done the “Duchess thing” now. It’s old history.

And of course, she’ll want to return to the United States at some point.

She has by far the best chance of the two at making money in some kind of career.

I’ve actually always regarded Harry as a bit slow.

The story here is really not about the press, it’s about a strong temperamental woman who wanted something desperately, until she actually experienced it for a short while.

I think there can be little doubt she’ll want to return to the US because most Americans never quite like other places the way they do good old America.

And Harry is saying Britain is still home. I can’t imagine Meghan going back to the UK, even for a visit. She literally ran away.

Harry is going to very much miss his “job” of walking about in uniform, smiling to grateful Royal-watcher crowds. He was pretty good at it, and it’s hard to imagine much else he would be good at.
