The past couple of weeks brought forth a lot of stress and unrest in the Royal family. Turns out, detailed measures have been taken to help Prince Harry and Meghan Markle feel at ease, soon after the explosive documentary surfaced and their pressures were made known to the world. Now, the royal couple has gotten a nod to break free and unwind from the Archbishop of Canterbury.

As per credible sources, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be taking six weeks off to refresh, rejuvenate and recharge before getting back to royal duties. “All members of the royal family are under a pressure that none of us outside it can possibly imagine,” The Most Reverend Justin Welby said. Prince Harry and Meghan have a special rapport with the Archbishop— who officiated at their wedding and also oversaw the baptism of their son, Archie on July 6, 2019. 

If things go as per the plan, Prince Harry and Meghan will be spending the Thanksgiving holiday with Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland. The family - including son Archie – will, then, usher in their first Christmas with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at Sandringham in Norfolk. 

The Archbishop seemed to empathize with the royal couple’s plight and believed that they deserved a break just like anyone else on a normal job. He further added that it was rather absurd to hold the royal family to an unfathomably high moral standard as compared to regular people.

The explosive ITV documentary hosted by Tom Bradby saw Prince Harry get vocal about his internal struggles— and how his mother’s death is “a wound that still festers.” Soon after, Archbishop of Canterbury joined Prince Harry to host a workshop about mental health at Lambeth Palace.  Meghan was quite candid about how dissatisfied she was with her life as a royal and developing a “Stiff upper lip”. Meghan went on to speak of her struggles and also spoke about how she and the duke were simply “existing” and not thriving.

The news of their six weeks off comes soon after everyone in the royal household began to take a deeper look into the state of affairs.
