Meghan Markle reportedly 'told Harry being in Royal Family is not working for me'

Meghan Markle reportedly said being part of the Royal Family is 'not working for me' before the couple dropped their 'stepping back' bombshell.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, is understood to have told Prince Harry 'she wants to leave'.

The pair had reportedly become frustrated by 'constantly being told their place' over the last two years.

"She wants to leave," a source told The Times of the Duchess. "She thinks, 'It's not working for me.'"

However, the Duke of Sussex, is also said to be torn about his future, but under pressure from both sides.

Meghan previously revealed in an ITV documentary how she had struggled with the media attention and that 'not many people had asked if she was ok'.

When questioned how her physical and mental health was faring, the former actress said: "Look, any woman, especially when they're pregnant, you're really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging.

"And then when you have a newborn, you know?"

"And especially as a woman, it's really — it's a lot. So you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed, it's ..." she said, trailing off.

She added: "Also, thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I'm OK. But it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

When asked if things had been a struggle, she replied "yes".

Harry will this afternoon come face to face with the Queen as senior royals race to thrash out plans for his and Meghan's future.
