Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have quit their senior Royal Family roles after a stunning announcement to the public on Wednesday.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to make a move unprecedented in royal history. They are adding fuel to the fire that there is a severe divide between Prince William and Prince Harry.
Not only are the brothers reportedly rifting, but their wives are also reportedly at odds.
After months of drama and the tabloids hounding Harry and Meghan, the new parents are forging their own path separate from the royal family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex used their official Instagram to share the news they are making plans to split their time between the U.K. and Canada.
“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. 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,” read part of Harry and Meghan’s announcement.
Even though Harry and Meghan are distancing themselves from the Royal Family, they will continue to support Queen Elizabeth. The royal couple will become financially independent from the family too.
