EVEN though their stunning Windsor wedding looked like something straight out of a fairytale, the past three years have been anything but smooth-sailing for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Now that they've come out the other side of Megxit and created a life together in California, the Duke and Duchess allegedly have "no regrets" about stepping down as senior members of the Royal Family.
Last year, the couple's preferred reporter Omid Scobie co-authored the bombshell biography Finding Freedom – which is shortly coming out in paperback with a bonus epilogue.
An extract of the new chapter – which has been published in People magazine – claims Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are "thriving" now that they are "away from toxicity".
Last year, the couple moved into their £11m Montecito mansion and count Orlando Bloom and Oprah Winfrey among their A-List neighbours.
Describing how the couple see themselves, the extract reads: "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."
"They seem to be existing in a different place, and that place is much healthier," Scobie told PEOPLE.
"Meghan famously spoke about that it was not enough to survive — we are now in the thrive chapter."
What's more, the chapter also claims the couple are "really excited" about the busy schedule ahead following the end of their parental leave.
Following the birth of their daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor in June, it was claimed the Duke and Duchess wanted to "lead by example" by taking shared parental leave of up to 20 weeks.
However, royal expert Phil Dampier – who wrote Royally Suited : Harry and Meghan In Their Own Words – says the couple's early return from their parental leave could also be financially motivated.

The expert told Fabulous: "I thought Harry and Meghan were taking five months off but it seems they are coming back to work much earlier.
"They will want to look after their young family, but they will want to find more projects and of course make some money.
"They need to pay for their own security and staff and the bills keep coming so they are now stuck on a treadmill to some extent.
"Now that they are not bound by royal protocol or schedules they can do what they like and support any cause they like, as they have been doing."
Since Megxit was announced in Januayr 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan have reportedly signed a number of multimillion-dollar streaming and publishing deals.
