Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Step Away From Being ‘Senior Members’ of Royal Family

The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex Visit Canada House

Woah. Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have announced they’ve decided to transition to a more private, independent life.

The couple made the announcement on their Instagram account saying, “…we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.”

The royal couple said they will split time between the U.K. and North America, they said in the statement.

They added that the move to split time between Europe and North America will allow them to give their family a chance to focus but also allow them to give Archie “an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born,” NBC News reported.

They will also be starting a new charity in the new year, the couple announced.

The BBC reported the other members of the Royal Family may have not been consulted about the decision made by Harry and Meghan.

Adding to the intrigue is a cryptic statement from Buckingham Palace saying, “Discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through.”
