Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have caused a stir across the globe as people (royal and not) wonder:
Why would a duke and duchess step back from their royal positions?
The couple officially voiced their intent to shed their royal trappings in January 2020, when they announced that they’d been considering such a move for some time.
“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,” the couple said in a statement, according to People.
