Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, announced on Wednesday that they would be taking a step back from their roles as "senior" members of the Royal Family. They released a statement on their social media outlining their intent to move to North America.
"After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. 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."
