Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have the royal family's support.

Following news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to spend Thanksgiving in the U.S., a source tells ET that many royal family members support their desire to spend time with Meghan's mother, Doria, and want to make sure that they feel supported.

It is believed that Harry and Meghan are spending the Thanksgiving holiday with her mother in a secure house that offers them privacy and security, the source adds.

Despite the couple's decision to leave the U.K. for the holiday, the source notes that the speculation and tabloid frenzy around their rumored feud with Prince William and Kate Middleton is exaggerated, calling it "ridiculous."

"The couples are on different constitutional paths," the source says, adding that that doesn't meant that they don't care for each other.

"They both have very busy lives with their children and humanitarian endeavors," the source points out, referring to Harry and Meghan's 6-month-old son, Archie, and William and Kate's three children, George, 6, Charlotte, 4, and Louis, 1.

A second source tells ET that the separation of the foundation and creation of individual offices -- Harry and Meghan officially exited The Royal Foundation in June, before starting their own charity, Sussex Royal the Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, in July -- has helped William and Harry.

The brothers no longer have to discuss shared resources for their separate passion projects, which, the source says, "complicated" the family dynamic.

A source previously told ET that, following the release of an emotional documentary about Harry and Meghan, the royal family was "equally frustrated by the interview [in the documentary] and concerned about their well-being."

"Everyone wants what's best for them," the source added.
