Harry and Meghan say goodbye as they step down as senior royals

Harry and Meghan have made a final statement as they prepare to step down as senior members of the Royal Family. The couple took to their official royal Instagram account to thank their followers for their kindness and support throughout the past few years.

"As we can all feel, the world at this moment seems extraordinarily fragile. Yet we are confident that every human being has the potential and opportunity to make a difference—as seen now across the globe, in our families, our communities and those on the front line—together we can lift each other up to realise the fullness of that promise.

"What’s most important right now is the health and wellbeing of everyone across the globe and finding solutions for the many issues that have presented themselves as a result of this pandemic. As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute," they wrote.

"While you may not see us here, the work continues. Thank you to this community – for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon. You’ve been great! Until then, please take good care of yourselves, and of one another," they concluded.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will no longer use the sussexroyal Instagram account or website, but they will remain online, but inactive for the foreseeable future.
