Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have decided to leave their official Royal tag and they have moved to Canada to give their 10-month old baby Archie a normal life. The Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38 have also taken this decision to become financially independent as well so that they moved from Windsor to Vancouver Island in January and currently live in a £10 million mansion too.
A source shared to US Weekly, ‘When it became clear Meghan was never going to get a fair shake, Harry snapped. He’s adamant that it was his call to move to Canada.’
They attend their last public appearance as the royal couple on March 9 before they leave the monarchy, at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey. Notably, another source revealed that they moved to protect Archie from all the ‘negativity’ in the UK since Prince Harry knows how tough it is to grow up in the limelight.

The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.
