The Duke and Duchess of Sussex live quite different lifestyles

Meghan Markle, 42, and Prince Harry, 39, present a united front when making royal appearances, but according to a source, the duo are rather different when it comes to their interests.

The Duchess of Sussex recently attended Beyonce's Renaissance Tour twice in a row, and was photographed with celebrities like Kelly Rowland and Kerry Washington.

The Duke, however, is primarily focused on his charity work and initiatives, telling an audience in Japan last month: "My life is charity—always has been, always will be.”

Meghan showed the power that being a celebrity has after she joined Harry midway through the Invictus Games in Germany, and got a great reception.

But the couple have been "apart an awful lot these days" according to a source, as Harry engages in charity work and Meghan grows her celebrity status.

A source told Closer magazine it's become "very noticeable" that Meghan is having to "ditch him to work on her celebrity brand" while he "wants to focus purely on the charity side of things".

The source claimed: "It's a fairly dramatic shift.

"There's a lot of talk about how these two could be in danger of gradually growing apart - even if it's been brought about just by circumstance and, as far as Meghan sees it, the need to land big deals to keep their profile up and the money coming in."

Meghan recently signed up with William Morris Endeavor (WME), a Hollywood talent agency that represents celebrities like Adele, Serena Williams, and Dwayne Johnson.

The agency will likely work with the former Suits actress on film and TV production, brand partnerships and business-building.

Meghan might be offered numerous brand collaborations with the reported relaunch of her lifestyle blog, The Tig, and rumoured return to Instagram.

It could be that Prince Harry is staying away from the celebrity world after the royal couple's Spotify deal was dramatically cancelled.

In addition, Meghan and Harry's Netflix docuseries was not nominated at the Emmys, despite being the most-streamed in its genre on the platform.

The Duke also stated in Japan: “I’ve been involved in many charities for most of my life, and I get a huge amount of fulfilment giving back to as many people as possible.”

Despite this, Meghan and Harry are continuing to work on projects together. They are reportedly developing a film adaptation of the novel Meet Me at the Lake.

This is a story about a couple who fall in love in their 30s, which draws parallels to Meghan and Harry's own relationship as they met when he was 32 and she was 35.

One of the characters in Meet Me At The Lake is suffering from trauma following the death of a parent in a car crash - which is exactly what Harry experienced at 12 years old.

The themes of mental health will likely be vitally important to both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as both have been very open about their negative experiences in the past.
