What specifically did the message that went around the world say?
“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have decided to make a transition this year by beginning to create a progressive new role within the institution. We intend to step down from being ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work on becoming financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty, the Queen. It is with her encouragement, particularly in recent years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the UK and North America, continuing to honor our duty to the Queen, the Commonwealth and our trustees.”
“The geographic balance will allow 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 charity. We look forward to sharing all the details of this exciting new step in due course, as we continue to engage 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.”

“After many months of talks and more recently discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family. I recognize the challenges you have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the past two years, and I support your desire for a more independent life. I want to thank them for their dedicated work around the country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and I am particularly proud of how Meghan has quickly become one of the family. It is the wish of my entire family that today’s agreement allows them to begin building a happy and peaceful new life.”
