Claiming that they will become financially independent, the woke couple said in a statement that they would be dividing their time between the United Kingdom and North America - speculatively Canada, where Meghan, a former TV star, had lived and worked for many years.

After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle enjoyed an extended break from royal life over the holidays, they chose to extend that break even more, making it official with the shocking announcement that they will "step back" as senior royals.

"Britain's Royal Correspondents are regarded internationally as credible sources of both the work of members of The Royal Family as well as of their private lives", the couple's website said.

Ch-ch-check out some reactions - the amusing, the heartfelt, and the annoying af - (below)!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced on Wednesday night on their Instagram account that they are making plans to "transition" to "a new progressive role".

The Duke and Duchess' decision to step down as senior members of the Royal Family is "very much unprecedented", says Larcombe. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.

The couple revealed that they aim to become "financially independent" and plan to divide their time between the United Kingdom and North America.

The couple will be launching a new charity as part of their "new, progressive role" in the monarchy, and will "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".

What a insane start to the new decade!

The post also said the couple planned to launch a "new charitable entity".

"Discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage". Mr Dymond revealed that the "BBC understands that no other member of the Royal Family was consulted before Harry and Meghan issued their personal statement tonight, the Palace is understood to be "disappointed".

It was not known exactly where in the Americas the couple plan to spend their time.

As an actress and a human rights activist, the duchess was accustomed to media attention before her marriage, but she has made no secret of the fact that the transition to being a global celebrity and part of Britain's royal family was hard.

He added it's "a hammer blow to the Royal Family".

The royal couple revealed their struggles with the media during an ITV documentary "Harry & Meghan: An African Journey", which followed them on a recent tour of Southern Africa.

The article stated: 'Hang out with the Clooney/Beckham/Soho House set and be assailed for being too Hollywood, for forcing your hen-pecked husband to abandon his old, country-set muckers - including Tom "Skippy" Inskip, the ultra-loyal, tight-lipped Harry pal, who, it's said, advised Harry not to marry Meghan and has paid the price: banishment'.

The Star reported that Middleton put on a "brave face" as her birthday was "overshadowed" by Harry and Meghan.

Tom also partied with Harry during a trip to Croatia the previous year, when they were photographed jumping into a pool fully-clothed at a nightclub.
