A source has spilled all on the childhood Prince Harry wants for his son, Archie, amid the couple's move to LA.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been desperately trying to build a better and safer life for baby Archie in Los Angeles...And it seems this week, more details have surfaced about how the family is planning to raise Archie.
It all started back in 2016 when Prince Harry met former actress Meghan Markle.The couple hit it off immediately and they married in 2018 - formally christening Meghan as the Duchess of Sussex.
Naturally, the world fell in love with the new Duchess.Her beautiful looks and elegant demeanor captured hearts all around the world, and her work for feminism and women's charities has set an excellent example within the royal family.
Cracks began to show early, however...

A family feud with her father, Thomas Markle, was quickly made very public and, when he didn't attend the wedding, the heat was turned onto Meghan.
Her dad reportedly hasn't met his grandson yet.

Sources claimed that Meghan cut all ties with her dad...
via: GettySources said that "it's a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn't have an active relationship with her father anymore." "It’s obviously heartbreaking for her but she has to protect herself, her husband and her son."
Meghan has also been branded a "diva" by numerous sources since she became royalty.Reports came through that Meghan was extremely high-maintenance in the palace and servers who worked for her had reportedly even quit their jobs due to her behavior. Of course, none of these reports are reliable, but they certainly made their way through newspapers around the world.
And, of course, there were reports of her supposed feuds with Kate Middleton...reported that Meghan left Kate "in tears" after a strict bridesmaid fitting for Princess Charlotte. But, despite many claims that the sisters-in-law are actually very close, tabloids in both the U.K and the U.S. like to state otherwise, saying that Kate is "fed up" of Meghan's high-maintenance attitude.
Meghan's parenting style has also been criticized.
via: GettyShe was repeatedly mom-shamed after paparazzi snaps emerged of her "awkwardly" holding baby Archie - a struggle that any new mom can totally relate to. Shaming a new parent is completely uncalled for, and this made it very obvious that the press were desperate to stir hate.
Meghan's eventful life was something that the papers simply loved to pick apart...
via: GettyAnd it seemed that British tabloid paper, The Mail on Sunday, took things a step too far when they published an intimate and private letter that Meghan wrote to her father earlier this year.
The Duke and Duchess had no choice but to take legal action against publishers of the Daily Mail...
via: GettyThis decision came as Prince Harry made a highly personal attack on the British tabloid press over the treatment of his wife, saying that he could "no longer be a silent witness to her private suffering."
And it was following from this scandal that the couple made their shock announcement.
via: GettyThe royal couple announced via their joint Instagram page that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen," the post read.
The couple explained how they planned to split their time between North America and the UK.
This was huge news.And, obviously, their decision ruffled a few royal feathers. "We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties."
Apparently, the pair didn't tell anyone about the news, instead opting to break it through Instagram.BBC, no other senior members of the Royal Family were consulted - including the Queen - and Buckingham Palace is "disappointed." The report also claims that senior royals are said to be "hurt" by the controversial announcement.
But, regardless of how the palace felt, the couple went ahead with their decision by moving to Los Angeles with their son, Archie...

And, thanks to the move, things have changed for the better.
via: GettyWell, for Meghan, they have. "Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London. She feels like a new person," a source close to the pair said. "On top of not being hounded by the British press 24/7, Meghan reportedly likes that she doesn’t have to worry about following outdated royal protocol anymore."
She can now live a normal life.

However, this doesn't mean things have been the same for Harry.
via: GettyVarious reports have been claiming that the prince is struggling to adjust to life in LA, and is missing his home country and his family.
A source has claimed that Meghan is worried about her husband...
via: Getty"This could be the toughest test that Harry and Meghan have gone through since they got married," an insider told New! Magazine, "Harry is feeling homesick and that’s taken Meghan by surprise as he thought the move was the right decision at the start of all this."
But never the less...
