Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have announced they’ve decided to transition to a more private, independent life.
The couple made the announcement on their Instagram account saying, “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.”
The royal couple said they will split time between the U.K. and North America, they said in the statement.
Prince Harry and Meghan recently returned from a weeks-long break from the royal spotlight.
