Back in May, the whole world tuned in to watch Prince Harry marry Meghan Markle in a lavish ceremony straight from the pages of a fairytale.
Unfortunately, in the months since, life for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex hasn't been all "happily ever after ..."
Much of the tension over the past few months has had to do with Meghan's family, to the surprise of no one.
In case you've been blissfully unaware of their existence, the Markle clan is kind of the absolute worst. Ever.
We've known this since long before the wedding, thanks to Samantha Markle's efforts to destroy her sister.
For the crime of ... being kind, smart and beautiful? Marrying a guy that makes her own husband look like some lame-ass?
For the record, most guys out there probably look like something of a lame-ass compared to Prince Harry of Wales.
Just the same, we're sure that whatever doofus could be duped into marrying Samantha Markle is especially lame.
The Markles have really stepped their game up in the months since Harry and Meghan exchanged vows, too.
We're sure it stings a bit to find out that your father faked a medical emergency just to wriggle out of watching you get married.
At least it would sting us, if that ever happened. But remarkably, it seems that the 37-year-old is still defending her family.
And it seems that Harry, much as he adores Meghan, is quickly becoming fed up with his new wife's forgiving nature.
That, in turn, has made her even more miserable.
A source close to the couple tells OK! magazine:
“Meghan crying about how trapped she feels by royal rules and Harry venting about how mortifying it’s been for him to deal with her family’s constant publicity-grubbing."
And apparently, it's not just Harry's new in-laws who are causing trouble in royal paradise, just a few months in.
The insider claims that Meghan feels Harry is noticeably stumbling in his transition from bachelor to married man.
The alleged proof of this, or part of it anyway, is evidenced by his stubborn refusal to part ways with his man cave.
Says the source:
“In the early days, Meghan kept quiet about how much she hated the laddishness and tastelessness of it all."
Markle, the insider says, had "hoped to get rid of Harry’s man cave and give their home a classy makeover."
Not so fast!
The insider adds that what started out as a lighthearted debate over his bachelor pad has begun to take a toll on Harry:
"Harry is complaining about being a henpecked husband already,” the tipster claims, and he's legitimately frustrated.
Last week, the rapidly rising tension on multiple levels apparently became too much for Meghan to take anymore.
According to reports, Markle decided to hop across the pond to spend a few days with her former Suits co-stars.
“She decided that flying to Toronto to see her old friends would be just the thing to clear her head,” the source claims.
“Meghan hopes that a few days apart from Harry will help simmer their tensions, but the honeymoon phase is over.”
We suppose in some ways, all marriages are alike.
It's just that if your royalty, you get to jet off to another continent when you're upset, and celebrity gossip sites talk about it.
Obviously, if there's any truth to these reports, now would be the ideal time for Harry to begin dismantling his man cave.
Pretending to like his in-laws wouldn't hurt either.
