“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 extra data, please go to (hyperlink in bio) Image © PA

He tweeted: “I read it in their own statement, posted to their own website last night, in which they directly dispute the Queen’s right to stop them using the ‘Royal’ tag abroad to flog themselves to bankers. I’ve never seen any royal publicly try to challenge the Queen’s authority like this.”

When one other fan stated to go away them alone, Morgan made his view clear, tweeting: “Pipe down you clueless, sycophantic clown. They released a lengthy statement last night directly challenging the Queen’s authority.

He continued: “They want to use Sussex Royal but by saying the monarchy doesn’t have the power to prevent them from using it — why say that? There’s no point.”

“My hope is the bitterness they appear to really feel with the
present association will develop into extra constructive as months progress,” Fitzwilliams
