Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been accused of enjoying the spotlight. However, according to a journalist, their public sightings have dwindled down compared to the time when they were working royals.

Meghan Markle And Prince Harry's Social Life Has Allegedly Changed

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have gained a lot of celebrity friends, but there were a lot of events in the past months when they seemed not invited or probably skipped them. According to recent reports, David and Victoria Beckham snubbed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for their son Brooklyn Beckham's grand wedding with Nicola Peltz.

The celebrity couple opted to invite Prince William and Kate Middleton and allegedly decided to only chose one royal couple due to the rumored falling-out between the two princes.

However, it wasn't the only event when Prince Harry and Markle were expected, but they were not spotted.

"This latest Sussex-free event comes after rumours circulated earlier this year that we would see Harry and/or Meghan on the Oscars stage presenting an award, a glittering moment which obviously did not come to pass," Elser wrote for News.com.au. "Nor were the Montecito-based royal expats on the red carpet for the Met Gala in New York or on Matha’s Vineyard for President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday last year."

She noted that the pair may have been invited to all those events but decided to skip them because they did not want to spend their time rubbing elbows with royally-star struck celebs and probably preferred a more relaxed time at home. Regardless of the invite or lack of it, Esler said that the royal couple's social life has noticeably changed after they left their royal duties and relocate to California.

"However, for whatever reason, what is notable about the Sussexes is, since quitting the UK to talk about making content, how restrained their social life has been," she wrote, before adding, "Harry and Meghan seem to be working their way towards Greta Garbo-worthy levels of reclusiveness."
