Royal author Andrew Morton has claimed in his book titled Meghan: A Hollywood Princess that Prince William deep down was happy about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping down from royal duties.
He wrote, "Like many others, Prince William breathed a sigh of relief when Harry and Meghan announced that they were stepping back from royal duties for six weeks or so and spending Thanksgiving and Christmas in North America.”
Morton went on, "The couple ended up in a remote luxury mansion on Vancouver Island loaned to them by a patriotic Canadian businessman. Palace aides, who had been urging the couple to slow down, were pleased to see them take a breath.”
Even, a member of royal family told Victoria Ward, “We were saying to her, 'Wow, this is not what a maternity break looks like, you need to slow down.'"
He added, "Another team member was even more blunt: ‘I told her last week to 'Please just turn your brain off. Enjoy Thanksgiving. Focus on cooking some pies.'"
