The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced they will step back as “senior” royals and divide their time between the UK and North America.
In a statement released by Buckingham Palace, the couple said they plan to “carve out a progressive new role within this institution”.
They said they intend to “work to become financially independent”.
Last October, Prince Harry and Meghan publicly revealed their struggles under the media spotlight.
In their statement, also posted on their Instagram page, the couple said they made the decision “after many months of reflection and internal discussions”.
“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.”
