Meghan Markle has reportedly become more lenient towards the royal family after seeing how the rift has affected her husband, Prince Harry.
“The situation with [King Charles III] and [Prince William] is still very difficult for [Harry],” a source told People Wednesday.
“Meghan is always supportive of it though. She used to be negative about it. It seems she has kind of moved on now.”
The insider went on to share that Markle now takes a “much softer approach about Harry’s family.”
After plenty of public bashing over their relationship, the couple abandoned their senior roles within the royal family in January 2020 and moved to the quiet, celeb-filled town by the summer.
The relationship between the outed couple and the royal family only worsened after Markle slammed her in-laws during a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.
In it, she claimed that they questioned Archie’s skin color before he was born and refused to provide care when she expressed suicidal ideations.

“It was only once we were married, everything started to worsen, that I came to understand that not only was I not being protected. They were willing to lie to protect other members of the family,” Markle shared with the media mogul at the time.
However, Harry had apparently been at odds with Williams and Charles since bringing Markle into the family fold in 2018. He also strained the relationship further following the release of his controversial memoir, “Spare” in January.
But, instead of continuing their feud with the royal family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are focused on their children: son Archie, 4, and daughter Lilibet, 2.
A second source told the outlet that the couple “just wants to focus on their kids and their life in Montecito.”
“They have moved continents. They have set up a new life with their kids,” the second source reiterated.
Markle has reportedly gotten involved in her children’s school and social lives as the couple attempts to give them “a normal life as much as possible.”
The insider furthered that their children’s upbringing is “very play-based,” explaining, “They have several play areas, including a climbing gym on their property.”
In fact, the kids’ days are filled with playdates and beach hangouts when Archie isn’t in school. But when he is, a Montecito local told the outlet that Markle will interact with the other parents during pick-up time.
“She talks to everyone; there is no pretense,” the local noted.
Additionally, a friend close to the family told People that they prefer to keep their homelife generally lowkey.
“They’re not into a big scene. They prefer smaller group hangouts at home, karaoke, that sort of thing,” the friend shared.
Amid their quiet life, the couple’s marriage has been put in question after a source claimed to RadarOnline last month that the two were “trying to figure out what hit them” and were “taking time apart.”
However, our source told us at the time that the rumors were absolutely false.
“It’s not true. It’s literally made up,” the insider explained.
On Wednesday, the couple put on a united front as they wore matching outfits for a video released on their Archewell website.
