Since Prince Harry and Markle decided to step down from their royal duties in the UK and move to America, the public knows very little about the couple’s two children who they’ve tried to keep out of the public eye.
Why? Well, the former Suits actress, aged 42, explained recently in an interview with The Cut it was all about having control.
Talking about sharing photos of her children with the public, Markle said: “There’s literally a structure by which if you want to release photos of your child, as a member of the family, you first have to give them to the Royal Rota (the UK media pool).

“Why would I give the very people that are calling my children the N-word a photo of my child before I can share it with the people that love my child? You tell me how that makes sense and then I’ll play that game.”
