Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have begun their new life in Canada but one cannot help but think about the massive royal drama that ensued since they announced their bombshell decision.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now successfully stepped down as senior members of the royal family and are working to become financially independent.
After an intense few weeks, Prince Harry's friend and polo star Nacho Figueras has opened up about the couple in a new ABC News special titled 'Royal Divide: Harry, Meghan, and the Crown'.
Talking about their decision to move to Canada with son Archie Harrison, Nacho said, "He's being a father. This is a guy who is trying to protect his cub and his lioness from whatever it takes."
Adding, "I spoke to Harry a few days ago. He has suffered a lot from all of the things that have happened to him. He suffers a lot from people judging him."
The couple have faced intense scrutiny since they got married. From racist coverage to publishing private letters, the British media's coverage has come under the spotlight more than ever. Another friend of Harry echoed similar thoughts as Nacho's.
JJ Chalmers, a former Royal Marine, told BBC, "When you look at the decision that he's made, I think at the forefront of that is to protect his family, because that's the number one rule, is to be a father and to be a husband."
Since their move to Canada, Meghan and Harry have been snapped separately. While Harry was spotted at the airport, Meghan was snapped walking her dogs and taking a stroll with son Archie.
