"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." Meghan and Prince Harry announced on Instagram on the 8th of January, 2020.

This was a massive bombshell for everyone. Who resigns from royalty? Not in a million years would we think this would come to be. While we're not sure how they'll continue to honor their duty to The Queen while a million miles away, we do hope the decision would make life what they expect.

BBC got to find out later on date 8, that announcement was a mouth-dropping surprise to the Royal family as it was to the world. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle hadn't talked to the royals before making the decision and posting it.

Two days after the announcement, Meghan Markle left the UK for Canada. Unfortunately, she left the Duke to iron out the family feud by himself. Archie, their ten-month-old son, was also in Canada with his mom, the duchess.

Why Canada Couldn't Work

Before Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex, she was living in Vancouver, Canada. During this time, she was shooting episodes of USA Network's famous law and drama show – Suits – where she starred for six seasons before leaving for the UK to marry Prince Harry.

After becoming a royal, moving back to Vancouver Island was pretty different and challenging. It's not a place flocked with celebrities, hence being spotted is quite simple. This makes hiding from the paparazzi nearly impossible.

Since Canada couldn't work, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to move to Los Angeles. This move was made on the 27th of March. The other reason for the move is their work. Since they now have to work, their agents are based in LA.

What's better about California is the fact that it's a celebrity state. Due to Hollywood and many other production companies residing in LA, actors and musicians prefer to live in that area. This would make Meghan and Harry more comfortable living with fellow celebrities in a town designed to fit the celebrity lifestyle.

Following her pre-royal career in acting, we believe that Meghan is set to get back in the game and star in more shows. Currently, Meghan has landed herself a role with Disney, as the network confirmed. She'll partake in the documentary, Elephant.

In Elephant, she will do the voice over for the elephant clan that travels across Africa. This will air on Disney Plus on the 3rd of April. As for Harry, I guess we'll expect more charity work and such.
