Harry and Meghan will now be balancing their time between the UK and North America, the statement explained, while “continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.”
It continued: “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.”
He’s is sixth in line to the British throne, after all.
After Queen Elizabeth, the line of succession is as follows: Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and then Prince Harry. So it’s highly unlikely the Duke of Sussex will ever actually be King of England. It makes sense, then, that he wouldn’t want all of the responsibilities of being a senior member of the royal family.
