By now, news of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s desire to step down from their positions as senior royals has traveled all around the world. While they aren’t the first to step back from their positions as royals, they are the first to want to keep one foot in the door.

Harry and Meghan don’t want to renounce or give up their titles, rather they want to be more financially independent. They want to earn their own money and then be paid when they work for the Queen.

As this is unprecedented, Queen Elizabeth II held a meeting with Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry to discuss the Sussexes role in the future.
