  • Source claimed the couple "really didn't look back" despite everything

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had a "painful" year since the Megxit, after the couple's nanny returned to the UK and the pandemic felt them "alone," the authors of Finding Freedom claimed.

Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, who co-wrote the Duke and Duchess of Sussex bombshell biography, said moving to LA brought difficult changes for the couple, who retired as senior royals last March.

"To be at where you're at after starting an empire and charity in just over nine months shows how hard you have worked to make this transition a success," said Omid Scobie and wrote in Grazia. "But it took a lot of work to get here. The journey was painful."

The authors went on to say the move was a challenge for Meghan, 39, too, which four times balanced motherhood with moving.

A friend of the Duchess said to Durand: “It was just a lot. Her nanny moved back to the UK when they moved to LA because of the pandemic and the restrictions left her feeling all alone. With every movement they felt more expelled. & # 39;

The couple left their newly renovated Frogmore Cottage last year to live in Vancouver for six months before moving to Tyler Perry's Hollywood Hills home and eventually moving to their current nine-bedroom family home in Montecito.

Omid Scobie added that since moving to LA, the couple have "been committed to contributing to the community," particularly with regard to the Covid-19 response, and wanting to "get back to basics."

It comes after it was reported that Prince Harry was denied permission to lay a wreath on his behalf at the Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday, another possible sign of a family rift.

The Duke of Sussex, who had spent ten years in the armed forces, made the personal request to Buckingham Palace but was turned down because he resigned from his royal duties in March, The Times reported last November.

The Queen was not believed to have been informed of the request or its refusal, which is said to have "deeply saddened" the Duke of Sussex, the publication reported.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment on whether Prince Harry's request had been denied.

Last month it was reported that the couple would like the Megxit contract to be extended by 12 months so that they can retain their royal patronage and return to the UK to personally seal the contract.

However, sources told Omid the couple had no such plans, adding, "They really haven't looked back".

Prince Harry negotiated a deal with his family at a Sandringham summit last January after he and Meghan said they wanted to make their own money.

They left in late March and moved to California, where they have since bought a £ 11 million mansion and started their charity organization, Archewell.

Following the royal departure, some people also called for the couple to be replaced as President and Vice President of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, but in response the organization said they were "as dedicated as ever".

Harry reportedly also quarreled with his brother William, with the couple allegedly not speaking for months after the deal was made.

But in recent months, relationships between the couple and the rest of the royal family are said to have been thawed, and Harry and Meghan have sent gifts to Prince William and his family.
