In the days following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's shocking decision to step down as senior members of the royal family, their announcement has left many royal fans divided.

During an appearance on SiriusXM's "Radio Andy," Hugh Grant reluctantly gave his take on Harry and Meghan's decision to step down, he said:

"I'm rather on Harry's side, I have to say. The tabloid press effectively murdered his mother [Princess Diana], now they're tearing his wife to pieces. I think, as a man, it's his job to protect his family. So I'm with him."

The Notting Hill star isn't the only person who is supportive of Harry's decision to protect his family.

close friend JJ Clambers' shared the same perspective, he

"He's less the captain in the army I knew, and he's more a father. And I think the decision that he has made, at the forefront of that is to protect his family, because that's the number one rule is to be a father and to be a husband."

After a two-hour crisis summit at Sandringham held by Queen Elizabeth with Harry, Prince William and, Prince Charles, she penned a personal statement about her decision.

In a statement from Buckingham Palace, the Queen said that even though she wished the couple would remain working full-time with the royal family, she supports their move for independence.

In the meantime, Meghan is settling into her new life in Canada. On Tuesday, she visited the Justice For Girls organization in Vancouver.

Meghan met with a group of women and discussed the issues around social justice and female leadership.

Harry has remained in England as the royal family work towards ending the talks about his future. The couple is expected to settle in Canada. The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, had announced that the country is happy to welcome the couple.
