Prince Harry Speaks After Separation From Royal Family

We're hearing from Prince Harry directly as he talks about the decision to step down from his royal duties.

Last night, the Duke of Sussex posted an Instagram video of the first public statement since Buckingham Palace announced that he and his wife, Meghan, would give up their titles.

"The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly," he said. "It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option."

The Queen released a statement Saturday revealing that conversations with the pair had been going on for months. "I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family," read the statement.

The couple and baby Archie will always be "much loved members" of her family, the Queen added.

Harry & Megan will no longer receive public funds for royal duties and will no longer formally represent the queen. They plan to split their time between Canada and the U.K.
