Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are not looking for a ‘completely private life’ and instead step down from the royal family to gain more control over ‘what they spend their time on,’ said a royal expert.
The Duke, 35 and Duchess of Sussex, 38, officially declared their senior royal duties in March and are currently living in LA with their son Archie, 14 months old.
However, the pair are not looking for a completely private existence beyond the limelight, royal author Victoria Murphy claims.
To talk with City and country, the commentator noted that Harry and Meghan still want a public life, but with more control over their time.

‘[Harry and Meghan] have gone back, not looking for a completely private life, but a different kind of public life, “said Victoria.
“A public life where they can have more control over who gets access to them and what they spend their time on.”
The Duke and Duchess focus on using their high profile profiles to promote their newest charity, Archewell.
A source familiar with the couple’s plans told the magazine that they are very ‘hands on’ and are constantly developing the base.
Meghan and Harry are apparently full of energy for their project and want to provide a platform for diverse leaders who encourage positive change in the world.

It comes after a famous brand strategist claimed that Harry and Meghan are ideally placed to transfer their Sussex Royal Instagram account to their new Archewell Foundation.
Phil Pallen, on philpallen.co, told FEMAIL that Harry, 35 and Meghan, 38, could plan a smart PR move by transferring the 11 million strong fan following their charity efforts they have built on their Instagram- account.
He described a social media fan base as ‘the digital equivalent of waterfront real estate’ and predicted that the Sussex Royal couple will ‘turn’ Archewell as soon as the foundation is ‘ready for disclosure’.
Phil told FEMAIL, “Now that Harry and Meghan have left the royal family, they are independent to speak boldly about social movements, politics and other topics of interest to the couple.
The Sussex Royal Instagram account is a platform and tool that allows Harry and Meghan to communicate with adoring audiences with conviction.

“If Harry and Meghan still control the Instagram account, I suspect Harry and Meghan will turn the Sussex Royal account over to Archewell when the nonprofit is ready to go public.”
The couple were forced to drop the Sussex Royal branding as part of their release of The Firm, instead starting an Archewell Foundation, and are thought to wait until after the pandemic to get further details about their charity or new social media accounts she may be launched.
The pair currently reside in actor Tyler Perry’s mansion in Hollywood with their 1-year-old son Archie, where they remain unobtrusive amid ongoing charity work.
In April they unveiled their new charity foundation ‘Archewell’, which will replace Sussex Royal.
When unveiling the project, which will take the causes close to their hearts, the couple revealed the Greek word in the project Arche – meaning a source of action – was the inspiration behind their son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor’s name.
