The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have posted a touching farewell on their Instagram.

Using their familiar blue style background, the Duke and Duchess posted an image with the words, “Thank you to this community, for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world.”

They then added a longer statement in the description:

“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.

“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.

Harry and Meghan”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will officially no longer be senior royals from 31 March. They have opted to refrain from using their HRH style but they have not been stripped of any royal titles. They, therefore, will be still be referred to as The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
