They’re constantly in the spotlight and it has just been announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are taking a “step back” as senior members of the Royal Family.
Along with this, their statement that they issued said that they will also be splitting their time between the United Kingdom and North America – whilst intending to become “financially independent”.
This is sure to cause some debates about their stance but below, you can read part of the statement from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Duke and Duchess of Sussex Statement
“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive 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 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 which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter.”
