Prince Harry and Meghan Markle keeping ‘low profile’ after ‘harsh press’

Harry and Meghan speak on mental health

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were really busy during the month of September, traveling to Germany for Invictus, New York City for World Mental Health Day, even making time for a quick trip to the Caribbean, but now it’s as if they’ve gone full stop.

They may be tired, they may be busy, they may just be… over it.

Daily Express US turned to Even the Royals podcast to ask about the change of pace, with co-host Aricia Skidmore sharing her thoughts on the matter, landing on all three being possibilities.

We spoke to Skidmore, who is an expert on both royals and pop culture, and she believes it can be a combination of taking a break, avoidance and being “unbothered” (by what others think).

Skidmore is leaning toward the latter, saying, “I would hope they let it run off their shoulders,” referring to the pushback from press and public, alike.

Daily Express US asked Skidmore if there’s a particular reason for Harry and Meghan for going so quiet, with her saying, “I’d like to think they’re taking some time to themselves after traveling around so much the past month.”

Traveling can be tiring, but at the same time, Harry and Meghan were getting push back in the press, as seen in this assessment by Sky News Australia, saying they were doing so well with work, traveling to New York City for World Mental Health Day, and that same day, jetting to the Caribbean, which to Sky, wasn’t the best idea as it goes against Harry’s advocacy for climate control.

Skidmore talked about their relationship with the press, saying: “I think the low profile is more of a general avoidance of the harsh media than any one specific thing.

In addition to the news cycle, scripted TV had a shot at Harry and Meghan, with The Family Guy turning them into an animated joke. Express asked Skidmore about the segment, with her saying: “I would hope they don’t watch it since it doesn’t paint them in a great light, but I also would hope they don’t care enough to be embarrassed.”

Skidmore expanded on how the Hollywood-adjacent couple is being treated in general, adding: “The media (news, scripted TV, etc) will run with whatever narrative they want, and no one knows this more than Harry and Meghan, so I would hope they let it run off their shoulders. That, or they just laughed along either everyone else and kept living their lives as is, unbothered.”
