When Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, revealed in early 2020 that they wanted to step down as “senior” royals, the monarchy faced a sudden crisis. And rumors flew in the media as those in charge – including the Queen herself – negotiated exactly what this new situation would mean for the duke and duchess. But finally, Prince William has opened up about his brother’s departure – and what he had to say was heartbreaking.

Yes, as practically the whole world knows by now, Harry and Meghan have chosen to relinquish some of their royal duties and become more self-sufficient as a couple. The shocking news broke in a statement that was released on January 8, and it came – rather unusually – via the pair’s official Instagram account. The message began, “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.”
