Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Stepping Down As Senior Members Of Royal Family With A 'Progressive New Role'!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepping back from royal family

Where is your Queen now!?

Color us royally shooketh, Perezcious readers, because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are OFFICIALLY untethering themselves from the royal family after months of personal turmoil!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took to Instagram on Wednesday to make the shocking announcement, writing that they have “chosen to make a transition” to a “progressive new role” that will apparently see them balancing their time between the UK and North America.

According to the post, this effort will see Harry and Meg stepping back “as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family” and working to become “financially independent” so they can have “space” from the palace while focusing on raising their son Archie.

Despite this big “adjustment,” however, the couple insisted they still “fully support” Harry’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, and will continue to “honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.”

Basically… it’s not you, Your Majesty — it’s them.

Harry and Meg said they’d release more details at a later date, but you can ch-ch-check out their full announcement (below).

“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.”

Wow. The couple has been teasing something like this for quite some time, but we never thought the day would actually come!

Are YOU shocked about this, Perezcious readers!?
