Before Baby Archie was born, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made it quite well known that they wanted him to have a normal life away from the spotlight. After all, it was their main reason to move from Kensington Palace to the quiet rural town of Windsor.
Despite rumors that they left London to escape tensions with other royal family members, it turned out that this was not true. They did not want their son to grow up to live his life in the public eye, with every move examined, any decision criticized, and every excursion photographed.
Although it seems that both new parents agree on this decision, fans have to wonder which of them will be responsible for giving Baby Archie Harrison a "normal" life ̵
Prince Harry knows too well what lives in the public eye can mean
If anyone knows how to live life under a microscope, it is Prince Harry. From the time he was born, he and his family were regularly followed by photographers, with almost everything happening in their lives, becoming headlines. For example, Harry was photographed by the news media on his first day of school, it was known to fans around the world as he took trips, and he could not stand for a recreation time without the flashbulbs going out.
A tragedy in Prince Harry's life will make him more protective of Baby Archie
. Just about every royal fan can remember where they were and what they did when they heard the devastating news that Hears mother, Princess Diana, had been drawn in a car accident in Paris. Harry was only 12 years old when his mother was taken from him so suddenly. He has openly talked about the influence it had on him and how hard it grew up without a person he so desperately needed. On the night of the accident, Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed were hunted by photographers who continued to snap pictures even after the terrible crash occurred. Prince William and Harry always blame the photographers for the accident.
Meghan Markle grew up in another environment
Thousands of miles in California, Meghan grew up living what can be called a "normal" life. Although her father, Thomas Markle, often took her to work with him on the set of the popular show Gift with Children Meghan did not live a spotlight. She was not yet famous, and unlike Harry, she had no idea what it meant to have every movement seen throughout the world.
This life meant that Meghan could do things that Harry couldn't do, like eating out in restaurants without people taking pictures or walking down the street, apparently unnoticed. Now that she is royal, she experiences the same life in the spotlight Harry has had since the day he was born.
Which parent will be responsible for giving Baby Archie a quiet life?
Chances are they both will. Although Harry seems to be desperate for little Archie to have a quiet upbringing, Meghan seems to agree. Over the past few years, she has become one of the most popular women in the world, suddenly living her life in the royal spotlight. In fact, when she and Harry first started dancing, he feared for her safety. It seems that Meghan and Harry go above and beyond to do everything they can to ensure that Archie is protected from the public eye.
