the future queen Kate Middleton was celebrating her 38th birthday yesterday, but her event was overshadowed by Harry’s decision.
The Duke and Duchess of the Sussex had announced to step back as senior royals and the entire royal family are upset.
Palace sources reported to the international news agency that Prince Harry and Meghan decided without consulting any royal.
Sources said that the Buckingham Palace was “blindsided”, as negotiations regarding their future had started.
There were “complicated issues” to consider, according to the sources.
However, Harry and Meghan said on Wednesday that they had decided “after many months of reflection and internal discussions”.
They intended to “step back as senior members of the Royal Family, and work to become financially independent.”
They also mentioned that they wanted to divide their time between the UK and North America.
They said, “The 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.”
Meghan is an American actress and her mother lives in California.
It should be remembered that Harry will remain sixth in line to the throne.
Both Harry and Meghan was planning to start their Sussex Royal Charity, which is expected to be global and will relate to Africa and the US. They will work more on female empowerment.
