During a candid speech at a charity event, the Duke of Sussex described his “great sadness" over his and Duchess Meghan's split from the Royal Family but said they had “no other option.”
He goes on to explain that he and Meghan wanted to continue serving "the queen, the commonwealth and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible.
"The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly," Prince Harry said. "It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always gone at it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option. What I want to make clear is we're not walking away. And we certainly aren't walking away from you."
