Being a royal involves learning a lot of rules and protocols. Kate Middleton took royal lessons when she married Prince William in 2011, and Meghan had too.

According to writer Andrew Morton, Meghan’s lessons about the royal family were also influenced by Harry’s approach. At the time, Harry was reportedly “infatuated” with royal life.
“He learned what he learned about the royal family from Harry,” Morton said, according to To express. “Harry himself had been quite troubled by the royal family before, so he had a pretty great education in the royal world. He has mentored the members of the household, and he’s a quick study, but still.

At the time of their marriage, many felt that Harry was satisfied with his life. However, he has since spoken out about how he really felt “trapped” in the royal family.
During the couple’s infamous Oprah Winfrey interview in March 2021, Harry said, “I myself was trapped. I couldn’t see a way out. I was trapped, but I didn’t know I was trapped… my Father and my brothers – they are stuck. They are not allowed to go and I feel very sorry for that. ”
Harry also opened up about this in the initiation-series you can’t see me. He described feeling “burnout” as the royal family expected him to shoulder the many responsibilities.
“Everything got really busy for me in my late 20s. To the point of exhaustion,” he shared. “I was traveling everywhere because, from a family perspective, I guess, I was that person. Who was like… ‘We need someone to go there – Nepal. Harry, you go.”
Harry said, “I was always the yes man. I was always ready to say yes. But that yes and yes and yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, caused burnout.”
In early 2020, Meghan and Harry decided to step down as senior royals. They moved to California and are now financially independent from the royal family. The couple runs their own charitable foundation, Archwell, while producing content for Netflix, Spotify and book publisher Penguin Random House.
