At a London dinner for supporters of the charity Sentebale, Prince Harry gave his first speech post-'Megxit' and addressed their controversial decision to leave their position as "senior" Royals. The speech was posted to their official Sussex Royal Instagram account, and Harry explained their decision as best he could.
"The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.
What I want to make clear is that we're not walking away, and we certainly aren't walking away from you. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible."
