The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shocked the world last year when they dramatically announced they were stepping down as senior royals to move to the US. Meghan and Harry quickly showed their ambitious side as they set up their own brand called Archewell. They also signed lucrative deals with Netflix, Spotify and Apple TV, before becoming authors too, following Meghan releasing a children’s book, The Bench and the Duke is set to also release a memoir next year.

The couple have faced criticism while carving out their new US chapter after repeatedly making shocking claims about the Royal Family in a bid to explain why they wanted to leave the Firm.

However, Stewart Pearce, the author of Diana: The Voice of Change, said their revelations are simply helping them become more popular across the pond.

He told Express.co.uk: “They’re intensely popular in the United States.

“This is due to their intelligence, the clarity, the self-willed projection of what their personalities are all about, particularly now they’ve removed themselves from the UK.

“They both removed themselves purely because of what they experienced from the press for two years.”

He added Meghan was able to help Harry to free himself of the “irritation” he faced as a royal, which helped them find their “liberation” in the US.

Mr Pearce said: “The statement Meghan and Harry are making is the statement of liberty that arises out of intense psychotherapy.

“Their situation was not being reviewed through Harry’s perspective of what he has been through, evidently because when he met Meghan his buttons were pushed, he was triggered, and she noticed that he had a form of irritation or frustration and said ‘I think you need help’.

“So that is exactly what he has done now, that is what the revelation was within the two person interview with Oprah.”

During Harry and Oprah’s AppleTV documentary series The Me You Can’t See, the Duke spoke about how Meghan helped him realise he hadn’t processed a lot of events in his past.

He said: “I quickly established that if this relationship was going to work, that I was going to have to deal with my past because there was anger there — and it wasn’t anger at her, it was just anger.

“And she recognised it. She saw it.”

During their joint Oprah interview in March, Meghan and Harry also outlined why they wanted to move to the US as shared their struggles with their lives as royals in the UK.

Meghan said Archie was not given a royal title, which meant he would no longer receive taxpayer-funded security.

She also suggested the decision may have been due to the colour of his skin.

She said: “They didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol, and (said) that he wasn’t going to receive security.

“In those months when I was pregnant we have in tandem the conversation of, you won’t be given security, not gonna be given a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”

During the interview, Harry also spoke about feeling “trapped” within the Royal Family, while Meghan claimed she did not receive support when she felt suicidal as a royal.

He said: “My father and my brother, they are trapped. They don’t get to leave. And I have huge compassion for that.”

He also told Oprah that he felt let down by his father for cutting him off financially.

Harry then added that “there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened” between them, while Meghan claimed she did not receive support from the monarchy when she felt suicidal as a royal.

Buckingham Palace responded: “Recollections may vary.”

Now Harry could soon be sharing more shocking secrets as said he is planning to share the “highs and lows” of his life as a royal in his upcoming memoir.

The book is set to include the break-up of his parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage, as well as the period of Diana’s death in 1997 and its aftermath.
