"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. What I want to make clear is we're not walking away, and we certainly aren't walking away from you."

With the support of Queen Elizabeth, who released a statement about their plans to balance a life between North America and England, Meghan is settling into life in Vancouver, Canada, with Archie.
