MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry were "afraid of the consequences" of speaking out about the Royal Family, according to a new report.
The couple dropped bombshell accusations against their family in a CBS interview with Oprah that aired to the world in March.
But in a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, a close friend of the couple revealed they were actually afraid of "challenging the system."
Prince Harry and Meghan also felt "nerves" about sitting down with Oprah – but thought they had no other choice to air out their grievances.
As the pair enter their new "thrive" chapter, they apparently don't have any regret over the path they chose.
"What started as a fairytale romance became a story that reinvented the genre – a self-made, independent woman playing an equal role alongside her knight," the pal told the outlet.
In the same article, Omid Scobie revealed that the "thriving" couple are "really excited" about the busy schedule ahead following the end of their parental leave.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their second child Lillibet Diana in June.
Scobie, the preferred reporter of the Sussexes – who co-authored their biography Finding Freedom – confirmed the pair will return to public life after "keeping toxicity away".
"They're a couple who do very well in those moments of human interaction. They need to be on the ground," Scobie told PEOPLE.
Although one of the main reasons for leaving the Royal Family was to get some privacy and to get away from the prying eyes of the public, Meghan and Harry are jumping back into it – just one year later.
"They seem to be existing in a different place, and that place is much healthier," Scobie told PEOPLE.
The Meghan and Prince Harry interview with Oprah shocked everyone watching as they made some serious allegations against the Royal Family.
Meghan claimed that Archie wasn't allowed to be a prince after there were "concerns and conversations" about "how dark" his skin would be after he was born.
But the 39-year-old declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging" for them.
Prince Harry said he would "never share" the full details of the discussion but that he was asked at the start of his relationship with Meghan, how dark the skin of their children might be.
But Oprah Winfrey revealed it was not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh who made the comment about Archie's skin.
Meghan also said that when she was suffering with suicidal thoughts, the family didn't allow her to get help.
The couple claimed that Kate Middleton made Meghan cry in a row over a flower girl dress.
Prince Harry also spoke out about how he felt 'trapped' in the family and that he and his father weren't speaking.
