By BBN Staff: The announcement made headlines on Wednesday when Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex announced their plans to step back as ‘senior members’ of the British Royal Family.
The Duke and Duchess issued a statement on their official Instagram page saying that they are transitioning away from their role as “senior” royals.
They also shared that they will balance their time between the United Kingdom and North America this year.
“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 roles as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family, and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” the statement expressed.
Following that statement, Buckingham Palace issued a statement saying that discussions with Harry and Meghan are at an early stage.
“We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through,” that statement noted.
The Duke and Duchess’ announcement comes after they and their young son, Archie were notably absent from the royal family’s Christmas celebration.
The family was reportedly spending time with Meghan’s mother in Canada over the 2019 holiday season.
The announcement ended with a promise to share the full details of this next step in their lives “in due course.”
