The world was shocked when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their plans to step down as senior members of the royal family in January. Over two months later, the dust has finally started to settle. 


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might have triggered a panic alarm in the royal household after announcing that they would be stepping down from their roles in the royal family on January 9 through an Instagram post.

In the post, the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex mentioned that they look forward to finding a "progressive new role" within the royal family.

The couple also expressed their wish to become financially independent and split their time between the United Kingdom and Canada where Markle used to live before marrying Harry. 

Following their announcement, the Queen had to call an emergency meeting to resolve the issue, an unorthodox move from the palace's side.



While of course there have been tensions, the family is getting through it.

According to a "BBC" report, the palace was not expecting the announcement from Harry and Meghan and the palace officials were "disappointed" by it. 


According to the royal correspondent of "BBC," the announcement caused tension in the royal household because the Sussexes did not consult the Queen before making the announcement. 

"This is clearly a major rift between Harry and Meghan on one part, and the rest of the Royal Family on the other."



Now, a couple of months after the bombshell announcement, a royal source has allegedly revealed to "ET" that things are finally starting to fall in place in the royal family. 

"They love their family, but given the relentless onslaught by the media, they did what they thought was right for their family and son."


The source further revealed that Prince William wasn't pleased that things weren't handled privately. Currently, the Duke and the Duchess are isolating in Vancouver Island with their son, Archie, amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Earlier this month, the royal couple made a series of appearances in London where they attended the Commonwealth Day ceremony, an event that marked their final appearance as the senior members of the royal family.
