FILE: Sussexit? Harry and Meghan will 'step back as senior royals' and seek financial independence

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, announced on Wednesday (January 8) that they are stepping back from their senior roles within the British Royal family.

"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," the couple wrote in an Instagram post.

"We intend to step back as β€˜senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen." Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are seen here paying a visit to the historic District Six Museum in Cape Town, South Africa back in September 22, 2019, one of their last public appearances representing the Crown.
