Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s separation from the Royal family has been dominating the headlines over the last week, as the couple is moving to Canada with their son.

On January 8, the royal couple announced that they took a “step back” from the Royal Family to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.

While Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II accepted the decision, as Harry and Meghan, who would be splitting their time between the UK and North America, wants to be financially independent, the move has thrown Britain's monarchy into turmoil.
