Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dropped a bombshell on the world after announcing they would be stepping down as the senior members of the British royal family. After months of lengthy discussions, the queen seems to have made peace with their decision and even publicly gave the duo her blessing.

Although they’ve already moved out of the palace and have been enjoying their newly found freedom in Vancouver Island, their decision to step down will be officially effective on March 31st.

Starting April 1st, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will no longer hold the office they previously did at Buckingham Palace. Their United Kingdom Charity Foundation will instead represent them. But that's not all, once it becomes official, the duo may no longer use their Sussex Royal brand names.

This means they can no longer be referred to as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Also, they’ll be expected to work towards their financial independence and will reportedly spend their time between the UK and North America.

Some Unfinished Business

Before their exodus from the royal family becomes official, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to partake in at least six more royal duties. For Prince Harry, these engagements include joining rock star Jon Bon Jovi for a recording session as well as the Invictus Game Choir at the end of the month.

Meghan, on the other hand, will reportedly be marking international women's day one week after Harry. Their final engagement will be on March 9th at the Westminister Abbey and will involve the entire Royal Family.

What the Future Holds for the Duo

What’s next for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? Well, there are plenty of possibilities for the duo. Meghan Markle reportedly signed a voice-over deal with Disney and is already on the search for a professional representative.

The Duchess also renewed the trademark for the Tig, her lifestyle website. Therefore, chances are she might be going back to journalism. Note, these are just speculations as the two are yet to disclose any information on how they plan on becoming financially independent.

What About their Son Archie?

Since their announcement, much attention has been directed to the couple. This spurs the question, what is in store of Archie Harrison Mountbatten. Well, the duo addressed the issue in their statement. Part of their plan is to split their time between the UK and North America. This they added will enable them to raise baby Archie in line with royal tradition.

As far as succession is concerned, Archie Harrison will remain seventh-in-line on the throne. When it comes to Archie’s education, it’s not clear yet what path Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take.
