This new year, as part of their new year’s resolution, some people want to loose weight, others want to change jobs , get married, buy a new car or house…
Prince Harry And Meghan Markle have decided to move to North America as part of their new year’s resolution.
They are not moving to Canada permanently, they will split their time 50/50 North America and UK.
“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have expressed their feelings regarding living their lives solely in the eyes of the public in the past.
They disclosed that, life hasn’t been easy because their private lives are topics for others, with some inaccurate reports about them.
Meagan stated in an interview last year that, for her to adapt to the “royal life” was difficult because she wasn’t really prepared to face media scrutiny.
She further explained that even her friends were against her marriage to the Prince, because of the pressure that comes with being a royal family might weigh her down.
Being in the public eye is something that Duchess of Sussex is aware that it can be extremely difficult, however, she never imagined it will be this way.
During the Christmas holidays, the couple travelled to Canada when they had taken break from royal duties to enjoy life with their baby.
News reaching the public today, January 8, 2020 is that, the couple are set to withdraw from royal duties with the reason being that, they want to work and stay financially independent.
They are stepping down to ‘make a transition this year’
They also explained that they will still have their full support for the Queen and honour their obligations to the Queen and commonwealth
even though they’ve decided to balance their time between UK and North America
It was revealed again by the couple that, their geographical balance will contribute to them bringing up their child better with gratitude for the royal tradition into which their son was born, get to focus on their family and launching of their new charitable entity.
As much as some people are shocked and sad by the news, they believe this will give them a bit of break from the public eye.
Others, who find it difficult to accept the fact that Meghan Markle and is married to Prince Harry because of her heritage have taken to social media to express their views. (which we will not be posting here)

“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. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This 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, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate 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.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
