Meghan Markle mar­ried Prince Harry in a lav­ish cer­e­mony at St Ge­orge’s Chapel in Wind­sor in May 2018.

The Amer­i­can for­mer ac­tress quickly be­came one of the most pop­u­lar mem­bers of the Royal Fam­ily with mil­lions of fans across the world.

But the Duchess of Sus­sex has also re­ceived a rep­u­ta­tion for break­ing pro­to­cols and do­ing things her own way. When Meghan and Harry be­came par­ents in May this year, the cou­ple re­vealed the news in an un­tra­di­tional way - by post­ing the joy­ous news on Instagram.

And ever since lit­tle Archie Harrison, who was born on May 6, joined the world it has be­come clear Meghan is ea­ger to keep his life out of the public eye.

At the young tot’s chris­ten­ing in July, royal fans were kept out of the loop, as the cou­ple chose to keep the event pri­vate. Usu­ally, the Royal Fam­ily share big events like th­ese with the public.

The Duke and Duchess of Sus­sex re­cently faced crit­i­cism over af­ter it emerged they were fly­ing pri­vate jets to lav­ish hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion, de­spite be­ing vo­cal about the dan­gers of global warm­ing.

The Sus­sex fam­ily took four pri­vate jets in just 11 days not long af­ter they urged to public to “make a dif­fer­ence” by liv­ing a sustainabl­e life. A royal ex­pert has now re­vealed has now said the cou­ple prob­a­bly made

the choice to fly pri­vate be­cause of their ob­ses­sion with pri­vacy.

Royal com­men­ta­tor Richard Fitzwillia­ms told Ex­press.co.uk: “They are pil­lo­ried for tak­ing pri­vate jets on hol­i­day when in re­al­ity they had lit­tle choice given their ob­ses­sion, rightly, with pri­vacy.”

He also added the cou­ple “feel re­stricted by con­ven­tional royal life,” just like Harry’s late mother Princess Diana did. Mr Fitzwillia­ms said: “The Sus­sex Brand has unique global reach, their aim un­doubt­edly is to cham­pion var­i­ous causes, for Harry it’s Sen­te­bale and In­vic­tus, for Meghan female em­pow­er­ment and di­ver­sity, for them both men­tal health to­gether with the Cam­bridges.

“There is vast global in­ter­est in them, their con­tacts with top celebri­ties are amaz­ing, they have a mar­vel­lous way of work­ing the crowds at home and abroad. “Meghan has a huge in­flu­ence on fashion and the fas­ci­na­tion with Archie is end­less. Diana is clearly their inspiratio­n.

“This leads in­evitably to the re­ports that they might spend an ex­tended time abroad, pos­si­bly in their roles with the Queen’s Com­mon­wealth Trust or even in the USA.

“Any ex­tended stay abroad would have huge se­cu­rity costs and we are un­aware of their plans for Archie’s fu­ture.

“This is ob­vi­ously the way it is head­ing. It will raise questions as to what their role in the UK ac­tu­ally is as op­posed what they want it to be. It will be ex­cit­ing as well as per­ilous to see what hap­pens as they do things their way.”
