Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in the headlines again, but this time it’s because they’ve made a shocking announcement: They’re taking a “step back” from their royal duties.

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:

While Schumer and Noah found the situation funny, singer and actress Bette Midler wasn’t laughing:Bette Midler?@BetteMidler

The outspoken Piers Morgan has tweeted numerous times since the story broke, saying in part:Piers Morgan?@piersmorgan

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.
