Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made news earlier this year as they announced that they were planning on stepping down from their roles as ‘senior’ members of the royal family, hoping to become financially independent.
It was then announced by Buckingham Palace that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be losing their HRH titles following a new deal, and repaying ‘Sovereign Grant expenditure for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage’. Releasing an official statement, Buckingham Palace announced: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.’
The royal couple have since relocated to Canada, living a peaceful month with baby Archie, returning in the next weeks to carry out their final duties as senior royal family members.
This is something that royal expert Katie Nicholl weighed in on in an interview with OK! Magazine, explaining that Meghan will probably find her return ‘bittersweet’.
‘It’s bittersweet for her because she sacrificed a lot to move to the UK,’ Katie Nicholl explained. ’She gave up her home, her nationality and her career and fully threw herself into royal life, so there will be a sadness about the way it all panned out.’
She continued: ‘Even if she’s feeling uneasy, she won’t let it show. She can put on a good front, so we will see plenty of that megawatt Meghan smile over the coming days.’
Well, we are looking forward to having Meghan back if only for a few days!
