Prince Harry of the British royal family and his wife Meghan Markle announced the release of their royal status, and shocked the whole world, including Queen Britain.
According to a British news agency Reuters report, the royal couple has decided that they will spend more time in North America and take steps to become independent.
It should be noted that last year proved to be tough for Prince Harry and Meghan as much more controversial news emerged in the media, including differences with his elder brother Prince William, which is why Prince Harry announced to leave royal status.
The royal couple, in a statement released on their website and Instagram, declared that ‘after several months of deliberation and mutual exchange it was decided that we were leaving the royal position.

“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
“We both intend to be financially independent, but we will continue to support the Queen of the United Kingdom,” He added.
It should be noted that in October last year, Prince Harry also confessed to have differences with his older brother, Prince William.
Meanwhile, the British news agency BBC reported that no royal family members were consulted before the statement, including Queen Britain or Prince William, and Buckingham Palace was ‘disappointed’ with it.
