Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally made a decision about their futures with the Royal Family. They have decided that they no longer want to work as British Royals.

Buckingham Palace released the below statement:
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family.
Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service. The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family.
While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family.

While the former Royals had this to say:
As evidenced by their work over the past year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the U.K. and around the world, and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role. We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.

The news was expected. It will be interesting how long they can actually afford to live this way. For Markle it is no different than what her life used to be like. However, it is a much different story for her husband. Freedom is fun at first, but then you want to go back to what you know. Will he be able to do that? Only time will tell.
