Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Branching Out From the Royal Family


Despite literally living in the lap of luxury and royalty, it looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are about to take their talents across the pond. In a recent Instagram post on their official joint account, they let their followers know they plan to step back from their royal duties in order to split their time between the United Kingdom and North America.

But are Harry and Meghan leaving the royal family?

It doesn't look like Harry and Meghan plan to leave the family in its entirety, and since Harry isn't one of the next few in line for the throne anyway, there isn't anything inherently wrong with them asserting their independence. But their official statement on Instagram said they plan to step down from their most immediate duties as premier members of the royal family, which means they are going to use their time as they wish, rather than to serve the family, as they have up until this point.
