The news was reportedly a surprise to the rest of the royal family, who issued a brief statement on the matter, saying: “Discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through.”
Harry and Meghan’s desire to separate themselves from one of the world’s most famous families has been dubbed “Megxit” by royal-watchers who compared the move to Brexit.
Other celebrities also jumped into the conversation, including comedian Amy Schumer, who had an announcement of her own:
People say I’m too critical of Meghan Markle – but she ditched her family, ditched her Dad, ditched most of her old friends, split Harry from William & has now split him from the Royal Family.
I rest my case.
And that folks, is what power looks like.
