After it became known that Queen Elizabeth II supported the decision of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to move to Canada, reports began to appear that their British residence, Frogmore house, began to dissolve the service staff. It was paid for by the country's budget.

Despite the fact that the Queen set "transition period" during which the couple should spend equal time in the UK and Canada, some experts believe that Meghan isn’t going to spend much time in her husband’s homeland. Rather, her visits will be limited to only important family events.

Now, there has been a growing row about who will pick up the couple's annual security bill as they split their time between the UK and Canada. According new poll for the Angus Reid Institute in Canada, 73% of Canadians said that they would prefer Canada not pitch in any money to the maintenance of spouses.

Harry and Meghan plan to make money for other needs on their own: developing business, overseeing charitable funds and signing contracts with other organizations. For 19%, some cost sharing is appropriate, while only a handful of Canadians would willingly pay for all costs (3%). The news comes as an expert revealed the cost of security for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could be as much as $10million (£7.6million) annually. It is planned, the security measures required for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be similar to those of the Prime Minister.

One of Meghan’s friend reveals Duchess can finally do what she pleases: “Meghan felt she had to escape because living within the royal confines was soul crushing. 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.”
