Meghan Markel and Prince Harry are in a pickle and they’re reportedly turning to their good friends – the Obamas – for help and guidance.
Meghan wants to kick the dust off her heels and leave the Royals and their stuffy lifestyle behind and head to tinsel town with her Prince Charming.
However, it’s not that easy.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
There’s a lot more to this story than just saying “we’re done,” and leaving jolly ol’ England and starting over.
