Amid ru­mours Meghan is strug­gling to cope with life as a royal, in­sid­ers re­veal that the Duchess of Sus­sex is on the hunt for a se­cret bolt­hole she can es­cape to when the pres­sure gets too much.

“Meghan is re­ally strug­gling with all the pub­lic back­lash against her and all the neg­a­tiv­ity she’s cop­ping at the mo­ment,” says a palace source. “But it’s the stress of Christ­mas and the ten­sion with Kate and Wil­liam that has re­ally tipped her over the edge.”

Those close to the preg­nant 37-year-old re­veal the for­mer ac­tress had no idea her life as a royal would be so chal­leng­ing.

Now, ru­mours are swirling that she’s so des­per­ate to re­tain an el­e­ment of nor­mal­ity in that she is se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing tak­ing up a $6 mil­lion of­fer to make a re­turn to Suits. The money would go to char­ity.

“The truth is she’s find­ing be­ing a royal a lot harder than she thought and be­ing preg­nant as well, she’s just not cop­ing,” con­tin­ues the source.

“She had no idea that her prob­lems with Kate and her fights with the staff would come back to haunt her so badly.

“Meghan feels like she needs to find a place to es­cape the pres­sures of royal life and all the hard­ships she’s en­coun­ter­ing – she just wants a lit­tle piece of her old life – some­where she can just be Meghan and not a duchess, es­pe­cially once she has the baby.”

As a re­sult, the stressed-out royal has been con­sid­er­ing the op­tion of buy­ing a place in her old home town of Toronto and has been look­ing at real es­tate.

While this is an un­usual step for a mem­ber of the royal fam­ily – and Harry knows it would be frowned upon by senior roy­als – the be­sot­ted prince is said to want to do any­thing to make his wife happy even though he’s heart­bro­ken she wants to es­cape.

Last week, Lady Colin Camp­bell also backed up the in­sider’s claims say­ing: “Ev­ery­thing I hear is that Harry is com­pletely be­guiled by Meghan and com­pletely en­thralled to her and has changed con­sid­er­ably.”

In­sid­ers say Meghan al­ready has her eye on a stylish, modern $3 mil­lion home close to the city’s De­sign­ers Walk area. With clean con­tem­po­rary lines, the luxury pad would of­fer the duchess a sanc­tu­ary, and a slice of her past life.

“Harry hates see­ing her so stressed and un­happy and just wants to turn things around, and if spend­ing time in Canada and away from palace life will do it, then he’s happy to give it a go.”
