Prince Harry Opened Up About His And Meghan Markle's Decision To "Step Back" From The Royal Family For The First Time In A Surprise Interview
"I did what any husband and father would do — I was like, 'I need to get my family out of here,'" Prince Harry said in his first interview since confirming he and Meghan wouldn't be returning to life as working royals.
Prince Harry has opened up for the first time about his and Meghan Markle's decision to "step back" from the Royal Family in a brand-new interview.
Last year, Prince Harry and Meghan stepped away as working members of the Royal Family in a bid to earn salaries for their work and secure privacy for themselves and their son, Archie, 21 months.
However, last Friday, Buckingham Palace announced in a statement that Prince Harry and Meghan were breaking away from the family and would not be returning to life as working royals.
"Following conversations with the duke," the statement said, "the Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of the royal family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service."
