Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Have ‘No Regrets’ About Their Royal Exit

Nearly a year ago, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they would be officially stepping back from their roles as senior members of the royal family. Since then, they’ve moved to Los Angeles, where they now have a home in Montecito.

A source close to the couple told Entertainment Tonight that Meghan and Harry have “no regrets” about their decision to move out of their royal roles.

“[They] feel very rewarded from their work,” the source added. The source also said that the couple has no plans to return to the U.K. right now, considering the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Meghan and Harry made their last official royal appearance on March 9, at the Westminster Day Service at Westminster Abbey. Meghan and Harry launched Archewell, their new non-profit, in October:

“Before SussexRoyal, came the idea of ‘Arche’—the Greek word meaning ‘source of action.’ We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name,” they said in a statement then. “To do something of meaning, to do something that matters. Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right.”

On New Year’s Eve, they launched a letter for 2021 on Archewell’s website with the following statement:

“I am my mother’s son. And I am our son’s mother. Together we bring you Archewell,” they wrote. “We believe in the best of humanity. Because we have seen the best of humanity. We have experienced compassion and kindness, from our mothers and strangers alike. In the face of fear, struggle and pain, it can be easy to lose sight of this. Together, we can choose to put compassion in action. We invite you to join us as we work to build a better world, one act of compassion at a time,” they conclude the letter along with their signed signatures — Harry & Meghan.”
