Us Weekly decided to avoid a cover story about what’s actually happening right now in the world, and honestly, I don’t completely hate it? I like a little bit of light, fluffy gossip in between horrific stories and politics. Us Weekly’s cover story is about how the Duchess of Sussex feels like a new woman now that she’s completely done with England. Note: this cover story was released before the news broke that Meghan and Harry had moved to LA a few weeks ago. So everything is about their “new life” in Canada.
A new woman. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s move to Canada “has given her the chance to reset,” a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.
“Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London,” the insider says. “She feels like a new person. Meghan has a real spring in her step again. It’s wonderful to see her in top form.”
The insider adds that the Suits alum “felt trapped and claustrophobic” living with Harry at Frogmore Cottage in London. “She was nervous to step outside her own front door because of all the negative attention she attracted,” the source says, noting that Meghan was having panic attacks.
I think this was true as soon as the Sussexes decamped to Canada last year. Their initial six-week holiday in November-December in Canada was their trial period to see what their life would be like away from the royal rat race. Meghan was flat-out glowing when they returned in January for their Sussexit announcement, and then she looked flat-out spectacular for the final “tour” in March. Being in Canada did agree with her, and I’m sure their new LA life will agree with her too. As for the cover line about Baby #2… it would not surprise me if the Sussexes had a quarantine baby in nine months. First came Polo Baby and then comes Quarantine Baby?
