If there was any doubt that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are living in a romance novel, then the couple’s latest move is all the confirmation that we’ll ever need.

ICYMI, Harry and Meghan basically quit the royal family with one Instagram post, in what seems to be an attempt to chase after the private life that they’ve always dreamt of.

‘After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.

‘We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen’.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

Just think about it. A literal prince meets a lovely lady without any royal background whatsoever. They get married. The unlikely relationship turns sour when fame and prestige become too much for the girl.

After a whirlwind of events, the couple ultimately decides that their love is what’s truly important, and bid ‘sayonara‘ to the glitz and glam for a simpler life.

Sure, they didn’t cheesily scream ‘I CHOOSE LOVE’ at the Queen’s face (or did they?), but hey, it’s pretty damn close.
