What’s In Store For Harry And Meghan As They Break Away To Start A New Chapter

In early 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the startling announcement that they would be stepping down from their roles as senior members of the British Royal family. Since then, the famous couple moved to California where they are raising their son and have a baby girl on the way. Here’s the inside scoop on what Harry and Meghan’s life looks like now and everything that was revealed in their highly-anticipated interview with Oprah.

Buckingham Palace sources told BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond that Prince Harry and Meghan did not consult the Royal family before making their decision and releasing their statement on January 8, 2020. The Queen and palace were said to be “blindsided” by the news, a reflection of the rift that’s been made between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the rest of the Royal family.

However, in the interview with Oprah that aired in March 2021, Prince Harry insisted that he told his grandmother of their plans to leave. He said, “No, I never blindsided my grandmother. I have too much respect for her.”
