Written by FDM

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have decided to give up their prominent role in the British royal family to settle this year in North America, a shocking decision that offended Buckingham Palace.

The couple is stepping back as senior members of the English Royal Family and plans to become ‘financially independent’. The Duke and Duchess have revealed the news in a statement on their Instagram page saying they plan to make a move to North America this year.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, 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. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

This decision took the royal family by surprise, who particularly hoped for a better start in 2020 after, by the queen’s own statement, a year “full of pitfalls”: it was faced with the emergence of the name of Prince Andrew in the case of the American pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and a road accident caused by Prince Philip, the sovereign’s husband, of fragile health.

“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, “she reframed in a statement sent by Buckingham Palace.

The couple had celebrated Christmas in Canada with their son Archie, born May 6, 2019, a year after their sumptuous marriage broadcast by televisions around the world.
