Harry and Meghan to step back as senior royals


Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have announced they will step back as "senior" royals and work to become financially independent.

In a statement, Prince Harry and Meghan also said they plan to split their time between the UK and North America.

No other royal - including the Queen or Prince William - was consulted before the statement and Buckingham Palace is "disappointed".

Senior royals are understood to be "hurt" by the announcement.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex,  has returned to Canada as the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge asked staff to find a workable solution to the problem.

Unlike his older brother Prince William, Harry has never grown used to media, and still visibly bridles at the cameras and the questions. And he is obviously - visibly - bored by the ceremonial side of the job.

Unless the Queen strips them of their titles, they do have income from their duchy. We all know who is behind this and it sure as hell is not Prince Harry!
