As far as any of us know, Duchess Meghan is currently chilling out in Canada (literally – it’s fucking COLD here right now), while Prince Harry takes care of things back at the ranch. And when Harry is done tying up all the loose ends caused by their exit last week, he’ll join her in Canada. And then they’ll travel back and forth from Canada to Frogmore Cottage in the UK, probably praying that they don’t run into the Cambridges at the airport baggage claim.
At least that’s what we’ve been led to believe will happen. But according to The Daily Mail, the staff at Frogmore has been let go, because Harry and Meghan really don’t plan to be there that much anymore. And if The Daily Mail’s source is accurate, Harry might want to grab Meghan’s toothbrush from the bathroom, because she isn’t really planning on coming back any time soon.
A source says that two permanent staff members – the house manager and a cleaner – have been moved to other positions within Queen Elizabeth’s household. The remaining as-needed employees, like chefs, maids, and footmen, have been told their services “are no longer required.” This sounds like many people just found themselves unemployed, but another source says that’s not so. They claim Frogmore always operated with a “skeleton staff,” meaning they only employed the minimum number of people needed for a weekend or holiday schedule. So no one is being made “redundant,” and that everyone is just getting new jobs elsewhere.
Sources also claim that there’s a very good chance Meghan won’t return to the UK in a “meaningful” way. Essentially, Meghan might pop in for tea, but she’s not going to get comfortable on the sofa. So if their neighbors want to plan a goodbye party, they might want to start now.
When The Daily Mail says that Meghan probably doesn’t want to live in the UK in a meaningful way, what they probably mean is that it won’t be her primary residence, or that Archie won’t be going to school there. So Canada will probably be their primary residence, or perhaps Los Angeles. If you’re wondering why Meghan wants nothing to do with the UK, wonder no more. A source close to Meghan recently told The Daily Mail that Meghan found the Royal Family toxic – as we know – and that continuing to stick around would be a “life or death” decision that she made for Archie.
Meghan’s friend explained that the 38-year-old feels she can “finally breathe” since leaving and has free reign over her life again. They also explained that Meghan felt that living within the royal family confines was “soul crushing” and she didn’t want her son around such a “toxic environment,” deciding to leave in part for his benefit.
“She told her inner circle of friends that her soul was being crushed and that the decision to leave was a matter of life or death – meaning the death of her spirit. She also felt like she couldn’t be the best mother to Archie if she wasn’t being her true, authentic self. Something she felt she couldn’t be in the royal family confines. She said she didn’t want Archie picking up on her stress and anxiety. She felt like it was a toxic environment for him because there was too much tension and pent-up frustrations.”
Back in Canada, Meghan is keeping busy. The other day she popped into a women’s shelter (but apparently only met with staff, due to a women-only rule that prevented her from seeing actual shelter patrons). And yesterday afternoon she was seen picking up her friend from the airport. People magazine says that Meghan drove to the Victoria International Airport to meet her friend and favorite pilates instructor Heather Dorak. Heather flew in from Los Angeles.

I know Meghan wanted to get away from the Royal Family because there was too much tension and pent-up frustrations that were crushing her soul, and she didn’t want Archie to pick up any stress or anxiety from her. So what the hell is she doing driving to the airport? Nothing will crush your spirit faster and cause pent-up frustration like driving to the airport and back. Your kid is absolutely bound to pick up some bad vibes if you’ve been yelling, “MOOOOOVE, god damn it!” for 20 minutes at the Subaru idling in front of you at the arrivals pick up.
