Meghan Markle’s latest move actually brings some “relief” to the royal family, says expert: “for now”

Meghan Markle’s latest move shows that she is officially done rehashing her royal experiences, and that could actually be a good thing for the royal family.

Meghan Markle hasn’t been on good terms with the royal family for some time. The Duchess of Sussex married Prince Harry in 2018, but it didn’t take long for Harry and Meghan to realize they didn’t like the family’s treatment or rules. The two left the family in 2020 and have only returned a few times since then.

Meghan and Harry have spent the last few years detailing their royal experiences, which hasn’t painted the royals in the best light, so Meghan’s latest move may actually be a relief for the family.

Meghan Markle’s new business venture is a “relief” for the royals – probably

A while back, Meghan announced plans for her new lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard. The Duchess is launching a lifestyle brand that will sell things like jams and jellies, textiles and other home items, giving the Duchess a bigger business to invest her time and effort into. Meghan is also in the middle of filming a new cooking show on Netflix, so she has plenty of things to invest her effort into. Previously, Meghan and Harry have capitalized on their royal experiences, but Meghan’s latest business venture seems to indicate that the two are done telling their royal story.

“Given how much anticipation there was for Meghan’s alleged ‘television novel,’ her turn to palace domestic goddess is sure to bring a few sighs of relief… at least for now,” royal author Emma Clifton wrote in the Australian Women’s Weekly, according to Express.

Meghan’s new product line doesn’t have an exact launch date yet, but her fans are already eagerly awaiting the new venture. She has also sent samples to a number of well-known celebrities who have shared the products on social media.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are probably done covering the royal family

At this point, Harry and Meghan’s time as working royals ended four years ago. Since then, they’ve been trying to find their feet again, and while the pair will likely never return to acting as royals, their focus seems to have shifted to building a brand of their own outside of the royal name.

Harry and Meghan also have two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, who they are raising in California; that certainly takes up a lot of time too. It seems the couple’s ultimate goal was to profit from telling their story, which would give them the opportunity to put down roots in the US before starting their own business ventures. And so far, it’s working.
