The generous couple will prioritize family life and will be free for six weeks.
Prince Harry (35) and Duchess Meghan Markle (38) have been under severe pressure since they got married and became parents. That should be the reason why the couple has now made a drastic decision. Several UK media outlets, including CNN and People, reported that they have now decided to take a six-week break from their generous duties.
This is to spend more time together as a family.
The break will last until the end of the year, and Prince Harry and Meghan will spend time in both the United States and the United Kingdom, a source in the British court told CNN.

The news comes in conjunction with a major TV interview directed by ITV, which has received a lot of attention in British media in recent days. In the interview, which was done in connection with the royal trip in Africa, Meghan Markle talks about a difficult time as a newlywed and as a mother.
At the same time, she believes British media has published one critical article after another about the couple.

The man who did the interview is named Tom Bradby and is, according to the Daily Mail, a close friend of Prince Harry.
In a clip from the trip, Meghan talks about the missions she was forced to take after she entered the British courthouse. Among other things, the Duchess says she had difficulty combining her new role as Archie's mother with the official assignments.
At the same time, she has had to face the media's repeated interest in everything she does.
In the documentary, a tearful Meghan asks questions about how the pressure has affected her mentally.
– Thank you for asking. Not many people have asked if I am ok, but it is a very "real" thing I go through the scenes, she says in the interview.

Recently, Prince Harry has gone hard against the media mention of him and Meghan. Via Sussex's official website, he also recently wrote a text clarifying that he is concerned about how publicity affects his wife.
He compared the mention in the media to the one his mother, Princess Diana, suffered before the tragic car accident that cost her her life in 1997.
– I have seen what happens when someone I love turns into a commodity and is not treated no longer as a human being. I lost my mother and now I see my wife fall victim to the same powerful forces, he wrote.

Towards the end of the Africa tour, Buckingham Palace announced that Prince Harry had taken legal action against the owners of The Sun and The Daily Mirror for it which was supposed to be phone hacking. The Duke accused the newspapers of illegally catching voice messages.
The spokeswoman for the News Group newspaper group, including the owner of The Sun, confirmed to Sky News that they are facing a claim. However, they did not want to comment further on the matter.
The news came just days after the couple sued the Mail on Sunday magazine for publishing a handwritten letter that the Duchess had sent to her father.
