Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have & # 39; right & # 39; to release because they are not superhuman & # 39; the Archbishop of Canterbury has claimed.

The reverend Justin Welby explained how Prince Harry (35) and Meghan Markle (38) are under enormous pressure that is hard to understand for every member of the audience.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a strong personal relationship with the Archbishop, who officiated at their marriage and supervised the baptism of their son, Archie on July 6, 2019.

Speak inside The times, he explained: & # 39; All members of the royal family are under pressure that none of us can imagine outside of us. & # 39;

His remarks come after it emerged that they would take six weeks off after their explosive documentary that was filmed during their ten-day tour through South Africa, detailing their struggle to be in the spotlight.

The family – including son Archie – is probably spending their first Christmas with the queen and other members of the royal family in Sandringham in Norfolk.

Allegedly they will fly to Los Angeles next month to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with Meghan & # 39; s mother, Doria Ragland.

The Archbishop went on to say that if royal duty was considered a normal task, Prince Harry and Meghan should have the right to take leave as everyone else would.

His pastor Justin Welby added that their royal couple & # 39; not superhuman & # 39; and should be able to take free time like someone else in a job. Pictured, the royal couple with son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor during their royal tour through South Africa on September 25, 2019 in Cape Town

He also called it & # 39; absurd & # 39; and & # 39; unfair & # 39; to keep the royal family to higher moral standards than others.

& # 39; They are not superhuman, & # 39; he explained. & # 39; They are a very remarkable group of people, all of them. But you can't put that kind of extra burden on people. & # 39;

The news about Harry and Meghan's six-week break comes shortly after the explosive ITV documentary was broadcast last week.

Frank in ITV's Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, an emotional Meghan talked about how she had been trying to cope with the pressure of her new life since she married Harry in May 2018 with a & # 39; stiff upper lip & # 39 ;

She further explained how she struggled with the barrage of criticism she experienced after she became a new mother in the media spotlight – and added that she and Prince Harry had the intense media attention & # 39; # 39; survive.

And when presenter Tom Bradby asked him if he had found & # 39; peace & # 39 ;, the Duke of Sussex said that the sadness of his mother's death still exists – and described it as & # 39; a wound that celebrates & # 39 ;.

A few days later, the Archbishop of Canterbury accompanied Prince Harry to organize a mental health workshop at Lambeth Palace.
