The same is the case with Prince William and Prince Harry of Britain’s royal family. Prince William is the dapper royal who is the face of modern Britain’s monarchy, while Prince Harry’s latest decision to abdicate royal status reflects his underlying nonconformity to the aspirations and tradition of a monarchy.
Colossal reactions generated on Twitter following the announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to step down from their responsibilities as the senior members of Britain’s royal family to earn and become financially independent.
A large number of royal family’s followers hailed Meghan Markle’s and Prince Harry’s decision to abandon the toxicity and negativity to start afresh.
