When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, announced their decision to step down from their “senior” Royal duties, the world was beside itself. It came as a shock to the Palace, and people suspected that no advance notice was given to the Queen. But a lot has happened since then.

It’s no secret that they were suffering from intense and often negative media coverage ever since they married in May 2018. But who would have known that after such a short period of time as a Royal, Meghan would opt to leave? This, and the interesting developments since 2020, deserve a proper breakdown.
