On Monday, Prince Harry left the UK to begin his new life with Meghan and their son Archie in Canada.

He added: "The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly. 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."
