Meghan Markle is reportedly "beginning to feel uncomfortable" with her life in the US. According to a Royal expert, her life in Montecito isn't panning out as planned.

The Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry relocated to California in 2020 with their children Archie and Lilibet, following their decision to step back from the Royal Family and leave the Firm amid ongoing controversy.

However, questions are now being raised about Meghan's contentment with their new lifestyle. The busy mother-of-two recently launched her own brand, American Riviera Orchard, which is expected to generate 'six figures' within weeks of its launch.

But as she delves into the workload, it seems to be a stark contrast from the princess life she had envisioned, suggests Royal expert Tom Quinn. The Royal author told the Mirror: "Meghan's new brand, American Riviera Orchard, has already gained popularity with over half a million followers, but it's essentially a relaunch of The Tig, the brand she abandoned when she married Harry, thinking that life as a Royal princess would bring endless deference and untold wealth."

"We don't yet know exactly what the new brand will be selling, but it's astonishing that a Royal prince and his wife have been reduced to selling some of the things we have already been told they will be selling - marmalade, jams and even dog shampoo. The new enterprise and Meghan's widely publicised visit to the children's home in Los Angeles are definitely linked and suggest that the couple are beginning to feel uncomfortable sitting around in Montecito with not very much to do."

From its intricate crest to the nuanced script font, Lita Rebello breaks down the elements that have led to a diverse range of opinions among design enthusiasts and the brand's audience. She said: "They have got creative with the logo's crest by hiding the initials in there, but it's so messy that it's almost impossible to notice. It's like they were aiming for clever, but it ended up being a bit of a puzzle that's hard to solve."

She continued: "The whole design of the logo feels like it was rushed, with too much going on at once. It's like someone didn't know when to stop drawing. Because of this, it's tough to make out any clear shape or idea in the mess. They picked a fancy handwriting style for the text but once you scale it down to a normal size, good luck trying to read it. The thin lines of the script just blend together, making it a strain on your eyes."

Meanwhile, Harry is set to return to the UK next month to mark a decade of the Invictus Games, it is believed Meghan will remain stateside due to safety worries and a desire to avoid 'drama' on British soil.

Meghan's visits to the UK have been sparse since stepping down, attending only significant events such as Queen Elizabeth II's funeral in 2022. Notably, she was absent from King Charles III's coronation last year, an event Harry attended solo.
