Buckingham Palace have released new details on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's next steps as they prepare to quit the Royal Family – including a date for 'Megxit'.
The Sussexes shocked fans around the world – not to mention their own family – when they announced they are stepping back from their senior duties last month.
After weeks of discussions, the Palace has now announced that the changes will come into effect on March 31.
As this is an unprecedented move for the Royal Family, there will be a review after 12 months to access how it is working.
The Palace has also confirmed they will be closing their Buckingham Palace office, after reports that all 15 of Meghan and Harry's staff face the axe as the couple prepare to move their lives to North America.
As of April 1, the couple will be represented through their UK foundation team.
The palace has also confirmed that the couple will retain their HRH titles, but will not actively use them.
Harry will retain his military ranks of Major, Lieutenant Commander, and Squadron Leader but will not use them during the 12 month trial period.
