Posted on the official Sussex Instagram page and the website, the royal couple (Prince Harry and Meghan Markel) made the announcement of stepping back to become financially independent, whilst still throwing support at the Majesty. “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”.
Per the announcement, the decision to step back comes in after months of reflections and internal discussions. It is unclear as to why the royal couple made such a final decision but reported media have drawn conclusions to the deteriorating relationship between the Royal family and the British media with the couple always at the centre of false news in the tabloid press.
Discussions are however underway between the couple and the Royal Family as stated in the release of the letter by Buckingham Palace. “Discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to take different approach but these are complicated issues that’ll take time to work through”.
Majority of their time and day will now be spent in the United Kingdom and North America in fulfillment of their duties to the Queen, Commonwealth and their patronage. The Sussex announcement ended with a sign-off note assuring the public of future collaborations the couple and the Queen, Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties.
