The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their split with the Royal Family on Jan 8, 2020. The Monarch granted them a year’s “sabbatical” to ponder upon the decision to make them right upon their return to resume to the family. However, due to the Covid-19 lockdown in March 2021, Queen was “disheartened” for not being able to meet in person with the Royal couple for the most-awaited discussion ahead of their withdrawal as ‘senior’ royal members.  

As claimed in the Channel 5 documentary “The Queen’s terrible year”.

Lord Robin Butler, Former Cabinet Secretary said: “The announcement by Harry and Meghan that they were withdrawing was obviously an intensely personal family moment for the Queen.

Hugo Vickers, Royal biograoher and Historian said: “They went off to Canada for a bit and then they came back and then they threw all this at the Queen and said what they wanted to do. And she very wisely said, “Well, give it a try and have a year’s probation.”

Emily Nash, Royal Editor Hello Magazine said: “The transitional period was put in place as almost a kind of safety catch, so that should the couple go to America and decide that, actually, they’ve made the wrong decision, had they found themselves unable to make things work, that they still had this opportunity to return and resume. It’s almost like granting them a year-long sabbatical, if you like.

The narration continues: “Now the year was almost up and face-to-face discussions between Harry, Meghan, and the Queen were said to be planned.”

The Royal couple apparently relocated to Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills mansion, Los Angeles with their son Archie. 

Prince Harry and Meghan were issued a “supportive” decision from the Monarch after the Sandringham Summit with Prince Charles and Prince William. 

The Queen released an emotional statement announcing the Royal couple’s decision to “step back”.

It read: “Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.

“My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family,” she continued. “Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.”

Later, the couple founded their non-profit organisation Archewell to help mothers in healing, courage and compassion. 

After a year of their split, the Royal couple gave a sit-down interview with most famous host and talk show Oprah Winfrey.
