Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tried to keep their plan to quit the monarchy, a huge secret that deeply affected the Royal Family. But aside from this, they also tried to hide their new website from them.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle claimed they had spent months to think of their decision to step down as senior royals. However, nobody knew their scheme minutes before they dropped their bombshell announcement on Instagram.
Hence, it was a massive shock to everyone, from the royals to their staff, which shook the realm to its very core.
The surprising decision of the Sussexes
According to Mirror Online, the royals only had a “very little knowledge” about the Sussexes’ decision.
Prince Charles and Prince William only saw their full statement a few minutes before they published their announcement.
Allegedly, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to keep the details of their exit under lock and key. With all the rumors and leaks about them, insiders revealed they didn’t know who to trust anymore.
Along with their statement’s release, they also launched their website, Sussex Royal, which contained their plans’ full details. It held all the information about their finances, security, and charity works.
However, the decision to keep their new website a secret caused a stir to the Royal Family and other staff members.
The book Finding Freedom revealed it “created a lot of ill will in the household and the family.”
Royal journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claimed the couple had kept their “family and team in the dark about the website.”
They added Prince Harry and Meghan felt they were left with no choice, believing “the rest of the family were patronizing them.”
“Harry and Meghan, however, felt they had been patronized by other family and staff members for too long,” they said.

Prince William, reportedly livid at his brother
Meanwhile, Prince William is, reportedly, “uncomfortable” with the new season of The Crown, especially after Prince Harry signed a new deal.
The show is about to reveal everything about her relationship with Prince Charles and her fight against bulimia.
“William and other senior royals are incredibly uncomfortable about this drama,” a TV insider told Express.
The source continued the Duchess of Cambridge is also “livid Harry is now in partnership with the company airing it.”
“Viewers of The Crown wouldn’t expect the writers to ignore something which is now a matter of public record,” the source added. “But the Royal Family also wouldn’t expect one of their own to take money made by the profits of shows like this.”
