Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are establishing their own royal household ahead of the birth of their royal baby this spring. Whereas Kate Middleton and Prince William will remain at Kensington Palace, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are establishing their office at Buckingham Palace under the direction of the Queen. However, reports suggest that the couple originally planned their own court at Windsor, which the Queen refused, sparking rumours of royal rift.
Podcast “Royals”, from Australia's New Idea magazine, heard from royal expert Angela Mollard, who gave her opinion that a separate court would be risky considering the “tremendous pressure” put on the couple.
Ms Mollard said: “We don’t know what’s going to happen with the Meghan and Harry marriage.
“There’s tremendous pressure on them.”
Agreeing, podcast host Rebecca Hyde said: “There really is.”
