After the announcement of Prince Harry and Meghan’s stepping down from their roles as senior royals, Buckingham Palace just released some new details on the duo’s next steps as they prepare to leave the Windsor family, even including a date.
Disclosure Of The Respective Date
Almost 2 months following the couple’s initial statement, led by weeks of discussions, the Palace has stated all the changes that will come into effect from March 31st. As this won’t happen frequently, there will be a 12-month “trial” period from the date, to see how things are working out with the proposed decisions.

“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 ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. 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. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
