Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Prince William learned of the couple's decision from the media, who announced they would no longer take on the official duties of the British royal family and live independently, earning their own money. The couple said on their social media account that they had withdrawn from senior membership of the royal family and planned to remain financially independent and work, while continuing to give the Queen their full support. The couple decried the decision for months, adding that they would spend their lives commuting between the UK and North America. Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "the decisions of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are an early decision. We understand that they want a different approach, but these are complex issues that require time to work on,” he said.
Will the couple who gave up their salary from the state budget return their wedding and household expenses to public accounts? Are they giving up £ 1.2 bn of cash transferred from Prince Charles's personal fortune? The answer to these questions is not yet known.
