Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reached the end of their time as official working members of the royal family and starting today, Buckingham Palace will no longer be commenting on the duo.
According to Town & Country, a spokesperson for the couple revealed the news in an official statement yesterday, writing, “Effective March 31, 2020, no other Royal communications representatives act on behalf of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, including Palace spokespeople, Household representatives nor Royal sources. Going forward, Buckingham Palace will no longer comment/guide on Sussex related enquiries.” Wow.
However, while the couple (who recently moved to Los Angeles with their son Archie) has a handful of projects in the works, the spokesperson also revealed they want the focus to remain on issues surrounding the current pandemic.
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would prefer that in the immediate weeks and months, the focus remains on the global response to COVID-19. However, we recognise there are outstanding questions relating to their future beyond their Household transition deadline," the statement continued.
And that’s not the only thing changing for the royal couple. It seems the two are also saying goodbye to their shared @SussexRoyal Instagram account. Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared a message of thanks to their 11.3 million followers and said goodbye. They shared an image that included their official royal cipher and read “Thank you to this community—for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world.” They simply signed it “Harry & Meghan.”
We knew this day was coming, but man did it get here fast.
