Meghan Markle told close friends quitting the royal family is "the best thing that could ever happen" to Prince Harry , it has been claimed.
It's also alleged the Duchess of Sussex, 38, said her husband's "spirit was being crushed" and her love for him has made their new life possible.
Prince Harry, 35, was seen grinning as he stepped off a plane in Vancouver late on Monday night as he headed back to his wife and eight-month-old son Archie.
The family have since been staying at an luxury $14 million (£10 million) Vancouver Island mansion.
And Meghan's pal claimed to the Daily Mail: "She said that like her, his spirit was being crushed and she simply couldn't stand to see him suffer anymore.
"Meghan says they will always be considered royalty regardless of where they live or what they do.
"Meghan has been telling her close friends that this is the best thing that could ever happen to Harry."
Following their decision to step back, the couple will no longer use their HRH titles and will repay around $3 million [£2.4 million] of taxpayers' money spent refurbishing their Frogmore Cottage , their old British home in posh Windsor, Berkshire .
It remains unclear though if Harry and Meghan will be required to strip the word 'Royal' from their SussexRoyal website, and who will pick up the hefty bill for their continuing security requirements.
But the friend added: "Meghan and Harry are not planning on changing their website or Instagram name. They are still considered the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. And they will keep the Royal part in.
"She described herself and Harry as game changers destined to hack the status quo. And now they can finally go about their business."
As part of their agreement with the Queen, Meghan and Harry will cease to be working members of the royal family from this spring and will not perform any official duties on behalf of the Queen – effectively leaving 'The Firm' completely.
The move will see Harry drop all of his official military positions and the couple will also spend the majority of their time in North America.
