Jane Goodall: Prince Harry is ‘finding life a bit challenging right now’

Gotta love how the top stories, the most-read stories in so many of the British tabloids are still about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Harry and Meghan are chilling out in California, isolating and working quietly in lockdown. They’ve only made two public statements in the past month. We haven’t seen them since Commonwealth Day in March. But the British tabloids are still acting like jilted lovers, or stalker ex-lovers poring over every single angle of how Harry and Meghan are “unhappy” or maybe Harry is having “second thoughts.” Maybe Harry will come running back to them after he abandons his wife and child, they hope. So while I’m sure Jane Goodall didn’t mean these statements about Harry in any kind of tabloid way, that’s how they’re being disseminated:

Prince Harry is finding life ‘a bit challenging’ following his move to North America, his friend Dr Jane Goodall has revealed. The 86-year-old primatologist has ‘been in touch’ with Harry after he quit frontline royal duties to live in Canada and then Los Angeles with wife Meghan, 38, and baby Archie, 11 months.

The couple are both fans of the world-renowned activist and invited her to their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor last summer. Dr Goodall believes she may have been one of the first people outside the family to hold Archie. She is currently in lockdown in Bournemouth where she opened up about Harry and his new life.

‘I don’t know how his career is going to map out, but, yes, I’ve been in touch – though I think he’s finding life a bit challenging right now,’ she said, speaking to Radio Times.

At the suggestion that Harry and his brother William are champions of the natural world, she added: ‘Yes – except they hunt and shoot. But I think Harry will stop because Meghan doesn’t like hunting, so I suspect that is over for him.’

[From The Daily Mail]

I have no idea why the British tabloids continue to make a big deal about how Meghan, like, ordered Harry to give up hunting? Harry had stopped hunting years before he even met Meghan, right? From what I remember, as Harry worked more in conservation, he stopped hunting. Plus, he served two tours in a war and I bet that put him off using guns in hobby-sports. But sure, blame Meghan. As for Harry finding it “a bit challenging,” literally ALL of us are finding this a bit challenging. Pandemics are not a fun time. As I’m writing about this, this is the top story on the Daily Mail. Royal reporters are amplifying it because they’re still clinging to this idea that Harry will find it “too hard” to be in California and that he’ll somehow come back. LMAO.

    I’m sure Jane Goodall is a lovely lady but she needs to be quiet. Anything said about H&M is going to be twisted out of context, the papers are already reporting that Meghan made Harry give up hunting when it was Jane Goodall who suggested it.

    • Tessa says:

      The Harry and Meghan critics will have a free for all. Goodall is just going to cause problems even if she meant her comment well.

    • I agree, AGreatDane. I have been a huge fan of Dr. Goodall since she began her work under Dr. Leakey’s directions all those years ago. However, no matter how kindly meant, she needs to shut the F**k up! I can only surmise that it just didn’t enter her head when making those comments how they would be twisted by the rabid Royal Rota.

    • Golly Gee says:

      Those bottom feeders are taking advantage of an 86-year-old woman who has probably never read the Daily Mail. They know no shame.

      • PrincessK says:

        Exactly, she is an elderly woman who has led a life so utterly distant and disconnected from the social media obsessed world we live in. Ms Goodhall probably doesn’t understand the full extent to which Harry and Meghan have been viciously demonised by the British press, and if she did she would be appalled, and also angry at the way the press are twisting and manipulating her message for pure click bait.

        I don’t think she has any true understanding of how cynical and bitter the world is. She is immersed in matters relating to nature and she probably has tunnel vision when it comes to ensuring that her legacy continues, and in Harry and Meghan she sees a powerful couple who can contribute to this.

    • Linny says:

      Get a life. You’re just a bunch of people who have no idea about anything l. You sound like bots hired by Meghan. Take up a cause, this speculation is pathetic

  2. girl_ninja says:

    The British media are really searching for crumbs huh. Racist losers.

    • L4frimaire says:

      It’s April 14th. Only 2 weeks since the Sussexes officially stepped down as senior Royals. Haven’t seen them, barely heard anything from them, yet they are still the lead story in the British press. That country has much bigger problems than what the Sussexes are doing in LA, and the US has much bigger problems dealing with daily meltdowns from the Orange dictator and cratering economy. It’s a challenge for me to put away my laundry and empty my Inbox. Jane Goodall is your chatty aunt who won’t stop talking your business, lol.

      • PrincessK says:

        Yes, even apart from the Fail, all of the other papers are continually trying to feature the Sussexes, their power is stronger than ever, pictures of them are still the most bankable, and they continue to attract more interest than all the RF members put together.

        It was predicted that their departure would only heighten interest in them and that is exactly what has happened and l can’t see it changing for the foreseeable future. I wonder how much they anticipate and prepared for this. But thankfully their actual whereabouts are still unknown.

  3. I just cAnt says:

    Not sure I feel about media latching on to an 80+ year old woman for gossip on them, but DO appreciate the hunting comment!

  4. Ali says:

    The British media are starving for Harry and Meghan stories.

    • GloryS says:

      Most are too busy writing about the virus to be honest.

      • PrincessK says:

        Not really p, the great Times of London has at least one Sussex story daily and sometimes up to three, and use any excuse to put up a picture of Meghan.

  5. Becks1 says:

    So, I’m not sure of the context of Jane Goodall – it seems like these few comments were part of a larger interview and the tabs are just running with these quotes? Or was she called specifically bc someone wanted to get some H&M quotes? I don’t want to click on the DM to see, ha.

    I did roll my eyes at the Telegraph – the freaking telegraph – bc they referred to her as Harry’s “conservationist friend” in a headline. not even by name. (ETA and no I didn’t click through to that article either, just saw it on twitter.)

    The British press is really desperate and its sad to see how they are clinging to any crumb about H&M. They really cant just let them live.

    • Erinn says:

      I find it all kind of strange haha. I’d hope that it’s just random sound bites from a large interview (I also refuse to click lol) but I mean – she’s a very smart woman. Surely she knew how this would be taken?

      But it’s probably gaining so much traction, like you said, because they’re SO desperate for ANYTHING related M&H to ‘report’ on.

    • Olenna says:

      The Guardian article sights recent interviews Goodall gave to Radio Times and the Fail’s Weekend Mag. She’s promoting a Nat Geo documentary and was asked about Harry, of course, and commented on both brothers. Probably the case of a well-meaning 80-year old making somewhat indiscreet comments and the BM ran straight to the press with them…click, click, ching, ching. The Sussexes will need to be cautious with her in the future.

    • Nic919 says:

      It looks like Goodall made a few comments and then it has been turned into multiple articles by the Fail. It really shows how desperate the UK media is to write about them. There is much more going on right now that we don’t need to hear rehashed stories about how Harry Is being emasculated by Meghan. There is a ton of evidence that shows a Harry making his own decisions, but it’s much easier to take the misogyny route and blame it all on Meghan.

  6. minx says:

    I mean, aren’t we all finding life a little challenging right now?

    • keroppi says:

      Right? Plus he also moved to a different country, which is challenging on its own, but moving in the midst of a pandemic would make it that much more challenging!

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Right?! I know I sure as hell am.

    • Chelle says:

      I’d honestly be shocked if he didn’t find it hard right now and probably for the next 6 – 12 months. First off, he’s moved away from everything and everyone he knows to settle in a new country—first Canada then the USA. That’s huge. California, from the weather to the people who inhabit that state, isn’t London or anything close to home or Great Britain. Any newbie would struggle. Secondly, other than the army, this is perhaps the longest he’s been away from home. Hell, college students who are living in dorms but in the same state as their parents, family and friends struggle with being away from home. Third, they are still very much newlyweds and new parents trying to figure each other out and just how to do that relationship and parenting thing together. That’s challenging. Then, of course; they are doing all of that against the backdrop of being run out and running for survival to get out of the U.K., being under pressure to wildly succeed (really not to fail at shit), being under pressure to establish a new normal for themselves AND are under the anxiety producing unknowns and quarantine measures of the coronavirus. But trolls are going troll. What can you do?

      I honestly believe that CA won’t necessarily end of their permanent home. Like most couples, they will figure out what’s best for them and will probably end up moving again. Oh well.

      • BarbN says:

        Just a side comment – since it only just stopped raining here in Southern California a few days ago, at least the weather hasn’t been all that different for English-born-and-bred Harry. And we’re almost as GREEN as England can be in the spring. It won’t last, but California looks, smells and feels so clean and beautiful right now – which makes it torture to not be able to go to the beach, or to the parks and preserves. There’s a challenge for anyone!

    • PrincessK says:

      If Harry had told her that his new life was easier, that would have resulted in angry headlines. The poor guy knows whatever he says will be twisted.

  7. SJR says:

    minx, 100%!

  8. Harper says:

    Newsflash: Everyone is finding life challenging nowadays. Poor Jane–all her future calls to Harry will now go straight to voicemail.

    • Jegede says:

      “Poor Jane–all her future calls to Harry will now go straight to voicemail.” – 😁🤣🤣🤣😄😄😄😃

    • Mumbles says:

      Methinks if anyone is calling anyone, it’s Harry calling Jane Goodall. She’s the luminary in the field with the real credentials. She started her work two years before Harry’s mother was born.

      • hmp says:

        I met her this summer and she was the rudest celebrity I’ve ever met. Her assistant was a delight though.

      • Granger says:

        I met her last Fall and she was lovely! She wasn’t overly talkative, but that’s because she was clearly exhausted. She is 83 years old and was on yet another world tour to raise funds for her organization. Her job now is to basically show up at huge fundraisers that rich people pay thousands of dollars to attend (my boss bought a table), then sit and meet those rich people one by one so they can chat with her for two minutes and have their photo taken with her. Honestly, I wouldn’t be very talkative either.

  9. OriginalLala says:

    Life *is* challenging right now, for everyone!

    I have to kind of laugh at Jane’s shade towards the brothers about their sport hunting, glad it hasn’t gone un-noticed.

  10. Royalwatcher says:

    This is so annoying. The quote is “I THINK he’s finding life challenging” not that Harry said life is challenging! This is Jane’s opinion! The British press are so gross as they continue with this poor, p-whipped Harry narrative.

    And, surprise surprise (said no one, ever) a day after William is being dragged to hell and back for his stupid comments, here come the Harry and Meghan articles. Can’t have the heir being called out for the jackass he is.

    • Iris’s Grandaughter says:

      @RoyalWatcher, you took the words right out of my mouth. After reading the articles in William yesterday. I pondered….hmmm what fresh meat do they have on Harry and Meghan to throw to the wolves? Here we go…

    • Bella says:

      Exactly, Royalwatcher. This is a non-story. Desperate times, desperate measures for the tabloids.

  11. Marie says:

    Jane said she THINKS Harry finds life challenging at the moment, he didn’t say it. When she talked to him he may have sounded stressed or down. Who doesn’t find life challenging right now? When I call my mom, there are days where she is in a good mood and days where she is down. It’s normal to feel that way, especially now. But of course, the press run with this because they NEED Harry to be miserable so he can come back to their horrible racist ways. They need him to get rid of Meghan and marry a white, blonde aristocrat. Pathetic. It was probably an innocent comment that is being turned around.

  12. Xo says:

    It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s having a difficult time. Cultural differences are no joke & you only really find out over time how difficult it will be for you. . . .

    Personally, I think he’ll come to regret the clean break he’s made with the UK. I just hope he doesn’t resent Meghan for it.

    • Sofia says:

      Why is that everyone goes “Oh poor Harry” when he moves to another country but didn’t give an ounce of sympathy when Meghan did the exact same thing two years ago?

      • Ainsley7 says:

        A lot of people on CB had sympathy for Meghan when she gave up everything for Harry. Some even had the exact same worry about her regretting the marriage. It’s not an easy thing for anyone to do and not really something that should be asked of someone under normal circumstances. I don’t think she ever regretted marry Harry, but I definitely think she was relieved when he wanted to leave. He’s also probably going to have some feelings during the adjustment. I doubt he’ll regret marrying Meghan in the end. She gave her up everything for him when they married and he’s just making the same sort of sacrifice for her and Archie.

    • GuestWho says:

      What clean break? They are going to be spending half their time in the UK and half in NA. That’s a compromise, not a break.

      Were you also concerned when Meghan gave up everything she knew (and then had her reputation deliberately destroyed by the RF)?

    • Harla says:

      Oh geez….

    • Jaxonmeh says:

      Whatever XO. The man has lived in a war zone. He will absolutely be fine living in sunny beautiful California with his family.

      I’ve lived in both the the U.K. and California. Both take adjusting to and I did just fine with both. The big difference is they have a lot of money. Y’all haters need to get over this. People move all the time and have falling outs with their family. Life goes on.

      • Prayer Warrior says:

        I honestly think the biggest struggle Harry will have is with the weather. “it’s always sunny in California”… Harry comes from a moist climate; similar is BC & England, or Seattle and England…but California has a different climate altogether. I think he’ll miss all the different ways rain falls….misting, torrential, showers, etc. The rain is not an extreme weather change like it is east of the Rockies: snow, sun, hot, cold, etc the weather east of the Rockies has it all. I love the rain; I could never live long-term in California. But for six months at a time? with someone I adored? Maybe. Probably.

      • hmp says:

        @Prayer I grew up in PA and lived in London and am now living in California and I love the weather here 😂 If anything it is the main draw.

      • SomeChick says:

        @PW we have all of the various styles of rain in California, too! Just not as many months of it. LOL. Poor Harry, stuck in California.

      • L4frimaire says:

        @prayer warrior, it’s not always sunny in California. We do have fairly mild pleasant weather, low humidity but Irarely hear people saying the reason they left California was the weather, unless you count devastating wildfires, which unfortunately are becoming a yearly occurrence. Yes we have drought right now, but we do get rain in winter. If he gets tired of constant sun, can go to Northern California for foggy weather or the mountains for snow. Summers can be so foggy and chilly in Northern California, in San Francisco and the Coasts to the point you need to go inland get out of the fog and have proper summer weather. I’ll take this over months of freezing weather or humid summers.

      • Lady D says:

        Prayer Warrior, any place on a coast gets lots and lots of rain. I’m from the west coast of BC and we call it the wet coast.

    • VS says:

      Did you say the same thing when Meghan moved to the UK? my goodness, if you are a woman the amount of ingrained “isms” in your post is through the roof…….Isn’t it amazing how some sometimes internalized so much?

    • Natalee says:

      You’re dumb.

    • Olenna says:

      FGS, who’s not having a difficult time. Most people are experiencing several stages of stress nearly simultaneously because of the pandemic. The Sussexes have made some major life changes on top of this. So, go take a break from the internet and reflect on your own life and how it’s changed over the past month or so. If it’s just status quo, then I’ll excuse how naive ( and biased) your comment sounds because you just don’t know any better.

    • Jaded says:

      @XO – What the what? Harry’s been talking about stepping back from ribbon-cutting and baby-patting for a long time. He’s always wanted a career and his philanthropy was/is everything to him. His own family turned on him and that just sped up the split. I don’t think he regrets leaving at all. He’s with the woman he adores and a baby who is the light of their life doing the things he was constrained from doing back in the UK.

    • Melissa says:

      @ XO — I get where you are coming from – as others have said, I believe that Harry always envisioned a way to break free from the BRF in a fashion and forge his own path and the time and circumstances were right for him to make that move.
      That does not mean it will be easy or that there won’t be some second guessing and maybe misgivings as this rolls out – it is not a slam against anyone to suggest there may be some adjustment.

      I think it would be perfectly normal to have both regrets and unexpected rewards over time.

      As for M – there were reams of articles and discussion acknowledging that she was the one giving up everything to join this archaic institution. And yes, it was discussed that we hoped she did not regret her decision or develop resentment for all she had given up.

    • Russ says:

      Wholeheartedly agree. People really don’t understand the actual impact of moving to another country, specially if you make it your plan is settling there permanently. Cultural differences are brutal, family becomes something to actually reflect about when being far from them and people would be amazed what kind of little things you start to crave and linger for when outside (and hey, at least they don’t suffer economically like many of us who move away do). Add this to be a father for the first time and in the middle of a pandemic… Its absolutely normal if he finds it difficult right now, idk why ppl are being this weird about that sentence, he and his family will be fine

    • Rhos says:

      I’ve moved countries to start a new life with someone else. I say yes, it’s not an easy thing. Far from it. Culturally, California couldn’t be more different from the UK.

      However, I don’t feel too bad for Harry even though he left a very rarified princely existence . He is still a major celebrity with money and connections. I just don’t think he will struggle with the same type of issues that the majority of immigrants struggle with when they leave all they are used to behind. Technically, all he left is a royal family but his world, a privileged and moneyed world of the very few is still his reality.

  13. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Oh I don’t know, he might find sport raising a rifle or two around the house. I’d personally enjoy scaring some nosy Nellie’s off the grounds. Whack-a-mole comes to mind.

  14. Chica1971 says:

    As for making up stories, Daily Mail is at it again this morning with the culture clash. My current challenge is finding a grocery store that will deliver and not cancel order three days later in middle of night. We all got challenges!

  15. GuestWho says:


  16. KellyRyan says:

    Rinse and Repeat 🙂 We’re all finding it challenging right now. Studios in CA have closed production early. Last time I checked it was 30. Usual season filming begins in August. H&M, I agree are networking, making plans, but like many are on hold.

  17. Sofia says:

    She’s got a documentary to promote so hence all the interviews.

    But I do think now is the time to be quiet. She’s said a few sentences and that’s enough. I KNOW she means well. I know she does but the BM will go to every length to try and twist her words. In fact they’re already doing it. The EXACT same thing happened to Tom Bradby.

    Misha knows how to shut down the conversation. When asked she says one or two sentences then says something to the effect of “I like to keep my friendships private lets move on”

  18. BYk says:

    Goodall doesn’t make any reference to the pandemic, the context was his “career” and “now” ( life in LA) Is interesting that Jane feels the need to say she doesn’t know how Harrys career will map out, they’ve been in touch regularly, for what I believe he would want her prestige around for their new charity, so is quite telling.

    • Harla says:

      I just have to say that nowhere in this snipet of the article did she say that “they’ve been in touch regularly” only that “they’ve been in touch”, that could mean that they’ve talked once in months.

      • BYk says:

        I could be wrong but for me the “I have BEEN” in touch implies continuity, regularity. You don’t say “I’ve been in touch” with someone when you talked to them months ago once or twice.

      • Harla says:

        Okay BYk, I can see your point. In my world, I have a number of friends that I text with once every couple of months just to check in see how they are doing but we don’t communicate with any regularity. So for me, “I’ve been in touch” means we’ve communicated but again not with any regularity.

      • Marie says:

        I agree Harla. I texted with a good friend of mine last night and it’s been months since we last spoke. We keep in touch but not every day or every week.

  19. Harla says:

    Many, many people are finding life, their careers and relationships challenging right now. Harry and Meghan are no different but I hope that they and all those who are struggling with this new reality will find peace and help along the way.

  20. ST says:

    Jane was giving larger interviews in promotion of a documentary about her. Her comments seem like mostly conjecture. The way she talked about Meghan and hunting seem to come from what Jane has seen in the news than Meghan herself. The British media made assumptions about Meghan would think and that has stuck. Just like they turned Meghan who loved to talk about roast Chicken into a vegan. Meghan included meat that came from traditional animals that were hunted in her food blogs. She seems far more pragmatic like the vast majority of people. Opposed to trophy hunting, but accepting of deer hunting etc.

  21. Suzy says:

    They’re throwing any and everything against the wall to see what’ll stick.

  22. S808 says:

    I’m sure it’s not easy to drop your career, move to another country (with no “family”), take a new career and take care of a small child. Luckily his wife can sympathize. He’s big boy and he’ll be fine. After William’s comments yesterday I’m not surprised H&M are on the front page

  23. Marie says:

    I think back to Omids article on Meghan’s last engagement. She had tears in her eyes and was genuinely sad. They didn’t want this. They wanted to serve the monarchy together but they were chased out by the RF. How can you not be upset by that. These two have never tried to be a fairy tale. They have both openly talked about their struggles. It’s going to take time for both of them.

    • Bella says:

      100% correct.
      They are both adjusting, I would think, not just to a different country (remember M has barely lived in LA for 10 years or so) but also to a new job, the changing dynamic in their relationship – M probably leading more now – and a growing child. It’s tough.

      • windyriver says:

        Wouldn’t be surprised if Harry also has a grieving process going on. Not over leaving, but over what he’s learned about his family over the last three years. In the engagement interview, he sounded so optimistic about what his and Meghan’s life would be like, how Meghan would be accepted. Even as recently as early January they were still expecting to be (part-time) working royals. What he found instead was a family that failed to publicly support them at any point, that have failed to treat them equally regarding doing outside projects and unnecessarily stripping Harry of military appointments he deeply values, and a deceitful sh*t of a brother working against him both in front of and behind the scenes.

        That’s gonna take time to work through. So not a bad thing that they’re remaining private for the next few months.

      • ISLANDGIRL says:

        Windyriver…..agreed 1000%

  24. Cosmo says:

    Odd that this woman would chose to speak to tabloids about Harry and Meghan. She must know that anything she says will be twisted. Did she even have these conversations or have the trash tabloids made this all up. The media is desperate and they make up random lies about these two regularly so I wouldn’t be surprised.

    • MsIam says:

      She didn’t speak to the tabs. They took her interviews with others and twisted them to suit their “poor Harry” narrative.

  25. Case says:

    I wish she hadn’t said this. She’s probably referring to COVID-19 or the fact that he’s living in a totally new place, but it makes it sound (of course) like it’s about Meghan, which I’m sure it isn’t.

  26. BYk says:

    I think they should have stayed in Canada: neutral field, both have ties with and at the same time is a new place for both to start fresh. I’m afraid LA wasn’t really the best choice, can be quite the harsh place to start a life outside the royal bubble he was used to, Canada would have treat him better. Cultural differences might be easy to downplay at first, but they are really an issue. Hopefully their relationship won’t suffer from it, I know by experience is not an easy thing to overcome.

    • Sofia says:

      They probably aren’t even in LA they’re probably in Malibu.

      And their visas were probably expiring. And think for a moment how it would look if Harry had tried to use his status to circumvent the rules or something like that so they could stay.

      • BYk says:

        I’m sorry but Malibu IS LA, not only geographically but even more regarding the negative connotations of the showbiz side. There’s a Malibu mafia of celebritism that’s quite a negative thing. Is a rarified environment just as Beverly Hills, Brentwood, etc. Now if you tell me they are house hunting a ranch in Santa Barbara or Santa Ynez, now THAT’s quite different. But in all aspects Malibu IS LA

      • Sofia says:

        Yes but Malibu and LA bring different vibes. For people like yourself you simply see LA as Hollywood and not much beyond.

        Forgetting that plenty of “normal” people live there for years without problems or getting involved in celebrity culture.

    • S808 says:

      They’re not citizen of Canada and couldn’t stay especially with COVID-19. If they made it with Meghan dropping everything, moving to the UK, adopting a new culture and being dragged within an inch of her life everyday, they’ll be fine in LA.

    • Marie says:

      But how could they? They not citizens and they don’t work in Canada.

      • BYk says:

        yeah but they DIDN’T and that’s why they’re where they are. And reversely and for very different reasons, I think LA is going to be quite difficult for Harry, just as Uk was difficult to Meghan

    • Sid says:

      There was no way feasible way for them to stay beyond the allotted time for non-citizens and non-permanent residents. They had already been there since November, so they were coming up on the six month limit. And can you imagine the uproar if the Queen had pulled strings to get the government to allow them to stay?

      • BayTampaBay says:

        The lack of valid Visas is the only reason I can see for leaving Canada. Not having a valid Canadian Visa makes the USA the only place they could go for a long length of time.

    • MsIam says:

      You are so funny @byk! Life outside the royal bubble indeed! You mean where his wife was trashed and disrespected? Where people called him stupid and challenged his sanity? Yes, I’m sure he totally misses that kind and gentle bubble you refer to. Totally.

      • BYk says:

        Calm down, I was referring to his whole life: nobody can deny he has lived in a bubble since his birth.

      • Jaded says:

        MsIam: And let’s not forget the bubble of deadly fighting in Afghanistan, living in a tent and eating crappy food.

        @byk Harry is a going on forty years old plus he’s been in therapy to help deal with his issues. I think the bubble burst for him when his mother died and he had to walk behind her coffin.

    • Jules says:

      I see your point. I think people here really over-romanticize things and have fallen for the fairy tale Hollywood ending. in LA. But that is not real life.

    • Jaded says:

      They were on a six-month visa – you can’t just stay in Canada, they would have had to apply for permanent residency which would have a complex process as they weren’t necessarily working, they were creating their foundation. It’s not like they were sponsored by an employer like Meghan was when she was working on Suits.

  27. Becklu says:

    Of course he is going to struggle right now? Honestly who isn’t? Like we are in the middle of a pandemic!!

    I will say that I think people are being unfair to Harry (and many here where unfair to Meghan) by acting like their love just makes everything perfect. The world is not a fairytale and getting married, having children, changing jobs, moving to different countries is HARD!! And people struggle to adjust. And with these two the are going from one extreme of living to another. It’s going to be hard!! That doesn’t mean they want to divorce or leave but let it be hard for them.

    • MsIam says:

      I have not read anything about anyone saying their love will make things “perfect” . I have read plenty of people who believe that getting away from that nightmare family and courtiers and press in the U.K. will hep to make things a hell of a lot better.

    • Yoyo says:

      Extreme is going from a five bedroom to living on the street.
      Harry was in the Army for ten years, and Meghan is an adult, not holding on to her mother coattails.

  28. Thaisajs says:

    I’m finding life pretty challenging these days, too. So is basically everyone else. Alert the media!

  29. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Perhaps Jane should take a cue from the other people in Harry & Meghan’s circle and keep her mouth shut.

    • MsIam says:

      I don’t think it’s fair to blame Jane Goodall. She didn’t talk with the tabs, she did an interview with someone else and the tabs twisted it. If she said “no comment” they would twist it as “Jane Goodall refuses to talk about Harry and Meghan! Is their friendship over?” or some such nonsense. Harry knows the game and how this works.

  30. Annaloo. says:

    Living well is the best revenge, Harry!

  31. MA says:

    It’s sad how Meghan haters will latch onto any nothingburger and run with it. Im sure Harry is suffering would rather be at William and Kate’s beck and call than in … LOS FREAKING ANGELES WITH HIS WIFE AND SON. They’re so transparent with their faux concern. Sorry, but Harry is never going to call you.

  32. ABritGuest says:

    Any of us could also speculate like Jane that think life is challenging at the moment for him.

    There’s this global pandemic going on which is making life tough for most to various degrees, just left royal duties& has to map out his future, likely still has tension with some of his relatives, his father was ill with coronavirus, sorting out new charitable org& living arrangements, still has multiple ongoing lawsuits & still has relatively young baby& marriage.

  33. Aria says:

    Omg cambridges stan lost their mind and coming here and pretending to criticize harry , because we know they worry about harry . Lol serious you guys should worry about future king every time he opens his mouth garbage fell out. Otameal wont forever save the face of the day. One day keen cambridges will face the music. How many years it may take but we will be here to watch all the rr implode on cambridges and their dirty laundry will come out one day. Fyi I think lot of secrets about queen will come out after she died. So many secrets and love child .

    • Melissa says:

      How did we get from a vanilla quote to the Queen having a secret love child?

      • SomeChick says:

        People have said that about Andrew for years. Something about some horsey fellow. Who knows? Who cares? It’s just gross old HRH Prince Andrew, Duke of York and pedo prince.

      • PrincessK says:

        The Andrew rumour has never been proven but there is another immediate member of the royal family whose second child may be a love child and the resemblance to the putative father really is striking, l was shocked. The circumstances around the child’s delivery set tongues wagging.

      • CrazyCatLady says:

        PrincessK please spill some clues.

  34. booboocita says:

    To give Goodall credit (a small amount, anyways), she’s an eminent scientist, not a run-of-the-mill celebrity. While she’s given many interviews, I doubt she’s accustomed to dealing with the tabloid press. It wouldn’t have occurred to her to watch her words where Harry and Meghan are concerned.

    The Jane Goodall Institute was located in Tucson, where I once lived, and I’ve met her at a couple of events hosted by the University of Arizona. She was a little reserved, but courteous.

  35. David says:

    Jane Goodall is 86! Why attack her?! This is the 2nd geriatric woman attacked and I don’t understand. I get being upset at HRH but come on.

  36. Maggie May says:

    He was definitely hunting up until he met Meghan. Maybe he did just grow out of it and it’s nothing to do with Meghan but even if she did influence him away from it, good for her. But whilst I realise this is a super pro Sussex site can we not pretend he is an angel where this is concerned or that he had some kind of Afghan related revelation… he hunted wild boar in 2017, after Afghan, and big game in 2004 which is pretty gross. It’s a way of life for him/then and I personally think it is because of Meghan he gave it up and I think that’s a good thing. If I were him I’d rather be doing something with my partner than separated by sex in order to shoot for a whole day and it probably comes down to something as simple as that.

  37. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Who isn’t finding life challenging right now? Moving countries and dealing with a pandemic are hard enough. Throw the two together and you’re probably gonna have a hard time adjusting. And Harry never said this, it’s just her opinion. She probably should’ve kept her mouth shut but here we are.

  38. yinyang says:

    This article put out too soon to cover up Williams blunders… And besides of course it’s a little challengning, as it’s been less than a month in the middle of a pandemic, why not ask her after six months or even a year, becasue it won’t play to BM narratives thats why. Harry, Meghan, Archie you are doing fine, keep going!

    BTW DM is really disgusting to use a kind little old lady to push their sick agenda. I love Jane Goodall she seems like such a warm and unassuming person, and I’m sure she’d be horrified at the thought of people twisting her words against Harry and Meghan!

  39. L4frimaire says:

    This whole thing is overblown and a bit out of context. Yes I suspect things are challenging with the major life change they are going through and setting up a new life in USA during a global pandemic, especially when the tabloids keep trying to sniff up your ass. Are the Brits pro-hunting because who gets upset that someone doesn’t kill animals for sport? Is he supposed to take down a mountain lion or coyote in the Hollywood hills, head up north to bag giant elk? During a state lockdown. Seriously, this is 2nd amendment country. One less person buying an assault rifle isn’t going to bother me. Why are they so fixated on every crumb about the Sussexes? What are the other Royals doing outside their photo ops? No one knows, and they’re right there!

  40. Abena Asantewaa says:

    Sure everyone is having life hard at the moment. Harry must have been referring to the lockdown, and not being able to go out or do stuff as per usual, as soon as they arrived in California because of Covid-19, but I doubt he is regretting his move, afterall, they still have Frogmore, and plan to live there as well. It is wishful thinking on the part of the RR. Harry was in the army for 10years, he will adjust, in time. About Dr Goodhall’s statement, am sure it has been misrepresented. No big deal. Harry and Meghan will be fine.

  41. Maria says:

    Seriously, this couple has had life-changing events one on top of the other. They met in 2016, she moves to UK, big change for her, they get engaged, marry in 2018, a big adjustment, let’s face it, have a baby in 2019, a huge change, then in 2020, they resign as senior royals, move to Canada stay a few months, then move to LA. They have moved houses 4 times, that in itself is very stressful. Now with this virus, their hands are tied, and like the rest of us, are stuck at home and don’t know what is going to happen next. No wonder he is feeling a little stressed.

    • L4frimaire says:

      @Maria, so true! They have been through a lot! This is why I think they shut down and decided to go away for a while. They just need time to decompress and not deal with anyone other then themselves. Everyone, both supporters and detractors, put these outsize expectations on them to “ do something”, and are watching their next move.

  42. Aria says:

    Does anyone knows that cambridges stans are stealing pro Sussex comments from this site and posting and mocking us without our knowledge in a private site called lipstickalley?? It’s a private site. Its cambriges stan safe heaven . They are stealing comment from here for many time without anyone knowledge. That’s the news low for them.

    • Olenna says:

      @Aria, someone who used to comment here directed the Meghan hater crew on another site to take their grievances to LSA a while back. I know this because I saw the comment myself. Between that and some of the royal gossip sites closing their Sussex threads for a time, it’s been “on” ever since. I doubt there’s anything CBrs can do about it since I think that what we write here anonymously is in the public domain.

      • Aria says:

        I understand but that is sick . Plus mocking our comment and attacking us without us there to defend us and our comment is sick and low. You can clearly see what kind of sick people cambriges attract. LSA is very much active because I saw my comment from yesterday and spineless twat attacking me without me in that conversation. Sick people cant fight directly or challenge intellectually hiding and running towards their hatred filled site. Interesting that site is African American I cant believe Meghan getting hated that much from african American community.

      • Olenna says:

        @Aria, I can understand how you feel. But, try to consider this: The mocking and attacks are clear indications that these people are immature, and behaviorally and/or mentally challenged. Their hatefulness and obsessive focus on the DDoS shows they are not coping well with their own lives since they feel compelled to put so much energy into hating people they do not personally know and who have done nothing to hurt them. The racial composition is a sad commentary on the extent to which some them are unable to deal with their own personal issues, but know that it’s not just POC commenting there. As I mentioned before, people gravitate to hellish places like that either b/c they were rejected, ejected or compelled to spread the hate from other sites. IMO, you should walk away from that place, forever, and leave the demons to do the devil’s bidding in their own space. They are definitely not worth your time.

    • SomeChick says:

      Well, they can’t do it here because we are wise to their weak azz trolling and will shut it down. With receipts. They need their echo chamber.

    • A says:

      If only LSA is the only place where celebitchy posters are laughed at and mocked, sorry to say it isn’t. Also the cambridge stans are not the only ones doing it.

  43. jferber says:

    He looks yummy and they both look very much in love.

    • L4frimaire says:

      Yes they are a very attractive couple and have such great chemistry. They really spark together.
