It’s claimed that the pair are facing financial woes after their Spotify deal was scrapped.
The couple’s $20m deal with the company ended after Meghan’s podcast ‘Archetypes’ only ever released 12 episodes.
In a statement released last month, both Spotify and Archewell Audio, Harry and Meghan’s production company, said they had mutually agreed to part ways.
The Spotify snub is said to have left Meghan ‘distraught’.
A source told PageSix that the Sussexes are “under tremendous financial pressure to fund their lavish California lifestyle, including their $14million (£10.7million) mansion and huge security costs” and are “taking time apart” to heal and rebuild their bond.
“They’re trying to figure out what hit them. Harry doesn’t fit in Meghan’s tacky Tinseltown world,” before adding that Prince Harry is hoping to “find himself.”
However, the insider told Page Six that any speculation of a breakup is completely untrue.
They said: ““It’s not true, it’s literally made up.”
The pair are spending time apart as Harry focuses on his Netflix documentary in Africa, as it’s also where the Duke is said to feel “most like himself” as he considers it a “second home.”
The source added that Harry and Meghan’s financial pressure has “likely made life a living hell” for the couple, who married back in 2018 and share two children together.
They said: “That stress, coupled with their emotional issues, has likely made life a living hell. Taking time apart on different continents will hopefully help them find whatever they need to move on.”
