THE Sussexes have “no intention of leaving the public eye in search of privacy,” their close pal Omid Scobie has revealed.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, renowned for their candid comments regarding their quest for a quiet life, are instead making the most of their life in the US “where they are very much in control”.

The couple’s new found authority over their lives since stepping away from the Royal Family has allowed them to showcase what they feel comfortable with, according to Scobie.
The Finding Freedom author released an updated epilogue for the biography, focusing on the pair’s past year, to coincide with the 24th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death.
He told Good Morning America that since relocating to California and settling down in their $14 million mansion, Meghan and Harry are now “thriving”.
“It’s not that they want to disappear or not be seen,” he explained. “It’s simply that they want to choose what they keep private and what they share with the world.”
Scobie said: “Fast forward to a life in the US where they are very much in control.
“The Archewell legacy they’re building – this is the couple showing the world exactly what is important to them.”

The Sussexes have regained their voice since leaving Royal life – both literally and figuratively – and released their first-ever podcast on Spotify.
While forging connections and enjoying some Cali sunshine, the pair have used their platforms for causes centred on poverty, racism, and mental health.

They have also focused on branching out their Archewell brand, while sharing intimate snippets of their private life – on their terms.
Meghan even released a comical video to mark her 40th birthday, as she called on her A-list pals to join her 40×40 initiative and donate their time to help others.
It is a dramatic turnaround from claims the Sussexes “overshared” in March this year, when they sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a bombshell interview revealing the misery they faced throughout Royal life.
Meghan told Oprah she believes “everyone has a basic right to privacy” and that “it’s about boundaries.”
Scobie said they were simply “desperate to get their story out there” when they spoke with the talkshow host – but it reignited the already fraught feud with the Firm.
In their updated version of Finding Freedom, Scobie and royal author Carolyn Durand wrote that a friend of Meghan’s told how the interview felt “cathartic” for the mother-of-two.
“All the things she had kept to herself or been too afraid to say [as a working member of the royal family] she felt safe to finally share. It was liberating,” they continued.
The authors also claim that Duke and Duchess had considered sharing the name of the person who made racist remarks about the colour of unborn Archie’s skin.
But Scobie also said the couple are now keen to take “accountability and ownership” for their role in the Royal rift.
“When we speak to sources close to the couple and also sources close to the royal family, there is this feeling that very little progress is being made,” he said.
“However, some feelings have subsided because time has done its things, so the door is very much open for those conversations to happen at some point.”
