Though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed they needed to move out of the U.K. because of the constant negative press, royal commentator Charles Rae believes the former actress just couldn't take being in the spotlight.
"Meghan Markle was welcomed into this country no matter what she says now," Rae told GB News. "She was welcomed into this country, she was more than welcomed into the royal family without a shadow of a doubt. When you look at the way that Princess Diana and the Duchess of York were welcomed into the royal family — no comparison whatsoever."
"They bent over backward and when she and Harry were out and about the people were on the street, dozens of people lining the street, hundreds of people lining the street," he continued. "They welcomed her. It only turned sour when she decided that she no longer wanted to be part of the royal family and wanted to go back to America."
Rae believes that Meghan, 40, took the easy way out. "It was her decision that she wanted to quit it because she couldn't take what she called the pressure," he said. "What pressure? All she had to do was work for the royal family. I don't think there was that much pressure on her or Harry."
While speaking with James Corden in February, Harry insisted that he never left his family high and dry.
"It was never walking away," he stated. "It was stepping back rather than stepping down."
"Whatever decisions are made on that side I will never walk away," he said. "I'll always be contributing. My life is public service so wherever I am in the world it's going to be the same thing. It was a really difficult environment as I think a lot of people saw. We all know what the British press can be like. It was destroying my mental health. This is toxic, so I did what any husband and what any father would do which is, 'I need to get my family out of here,' but we never walked away."
