Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have announced that they are “stepping back” as senior members of the Royal Family.
KAMI learned that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to work and become financially independent.
Through an Instagram post, the couple announced their decision “after many months of refection and internal discussions.”
“We have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” it read in the post.
“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 added.
The couple explained that they want to balance their time in both the United Kingdom and North America while still upholding their duties to Queen Elizabeth II and the Commonwealth.
“This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity,” they explained.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have tied the knot in May 2018. A year after, their first child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, was born.
Before becoming a member of the Royal Family, Markle was a known actress in Hollywood. In 2011, she was married to actor Trevor Engelson and got divorced in 2013.
