Prince Harry 'drove decision' to quit as Senior Royals

New book "Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family", will reveal that it was Prince Harry's decision to quit as Senior Royals.

The 35 year old and his wife Duchess Meghan stepped back as senior royals earlier this year and moved to America to start fresh as a new family. Although Meghan, 38, has been slammed for the decision, a new book about the couple will claim that it was Harry's choice.

A publishing source told The Sun, "That word 'Megxit' in particular has always angered Prince Harry. It gives the impression that the decision to walk away from the Royal Family was Meghan's.

"The reality is Harry drove that decision. The book will make that clear and explain why it had to happen. The truth is Harry had been unhappy for a long, long time."

The source also mentioned that Prince Harry wanted to move in the direction that they did and had been considering this life-changing decision for more than a year.

"Meghan supported Harry's decision. But there was more than one occasion where she asked him if he was certain it was what he wanted. She always made it clear she would support him in whatever he did," the source added.

Harry previously insisted he had "no other option" than to walk away from royal life with Meghan and their son Archie, 12 months.

In a speech at a charity event just days after the unexpected announcement, Harry said "The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly.

"It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option."
