It’s being reported that Royals Harry & Meghan are “stepping back” from their Royal duties. This was news to the “disappointed” Royal Family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a statement today, followed by a very short statement from ‘Royal Communications’ saying these are “complicated issues.” They plan on splitting their time between the UK and Canada.
“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…We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America.”
