    I think if they want to resign, they should go the whole hog and renounce their titles too.

    Seems a delusional move in many ways - not least if they think it will defuse media interest in them.

    To be fair, they couldn't get much further away than British Columbia. I think our press would soon get fed up of reporting on them opening the Squamish Loggers Sports, or the Nanaimo Bath Tub race.

    Not much happens in BC, eh?

    See, their comments on their website about who they'll talk to in the future will, in my mind, mean that the tabloid/gutter press will hound them relentlessly.

    Apparently this is a big deal.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if he chose to reveal his plans and thoughts to Emily Maitliss. I don't think he's got much more between his ears than his uncle.

    No surprise. The press tormented his mum and had a hand her death. Theyíve been a right shower of ****s about his wife with distinct undercurrents of racism.

    Donít blame him at all.

    The same right wing press that have hounded them and called them out for everything are now shocked and appalled -and hounding them- over this.

    Itís hilarious.

    ĎMeghan is going to ruin the royal familyí
    Well more Meghans are needed.

    Although I reckon had she not been subject to the same racist tirade as the likes of Raheem Sterling has then this would bot be happening.

    I donít agree with the monarchy one bit, but Iíd like to know the things that these two have done that have made the right wing so angry.

    If anyone has any examples Iíd love to hear them.

    Katie Hopkins and Piers Morgans twitterís have been a great read today.

    That's where I am with it from my limited knowledge of the actual practicalities of the situation.

    I've no idea if him and his family being 'financially independent' is viable but I have a respect for his decision. In the months and years before his mother died she was hounded and bullied by the press and a hell of a lot of the public lapped the 'scandal' up. When she died the hypocrites changed their tune. He's seen the way his wife has been treated, appallingly, and seen the nasty undercurrent you have mentioned and seems to have said '**** this'.

    He's spoken openly about his struggles with his mental health and dealing with the death of his mother. The perverse system that is the monarchy has seen him increasingly isolated from his own brother as he is prepared for the role he was born into. Harry has got the option of leaving and he seems to be taking it.

    Some of the pish being spouted online about how 'she has got her claws into him', 'she's a manipulative one' and 'that one will break his heart given half a chance' just confirms to me he is making a smart decision.

    Grown man tells everyone he wants to make his own way in life and stop taking handouts from his mum for day to day living, foreign holidays, vehicles etc etc. Big deal! Hopefully a saving for the taxpayers. 80m spent last year on the civil list, great to see Harry help out now that 3m has been spent from taxpayers money to fix his house up. Although I'm a nationalist I'm by no means a republican but by **** why do we keep so many of this lot. Queen, and next three in line should be on the civil list the rest should be making their own living

    The one thing that struck me, watching TV and reading news coverage of all this, is that those who claim to be ‘Royal reporters’ or commentators or opinionists seem to be utterly hideous.

    I don’t mean physically (though there is very much a bit of a shared look). It is more the utter, utter resentment they seem to have for him or more especially her. It reminds me of Jenny Bond in the Diana years who seemed to think she was the actual royalty.

    I don’t know and don’t particularly care for how this ends up but victimisation is what it is, even if it is someone born into a ‘royal family’ or someone who married into one.

    Iím not a massive fan of the Royals but I quite like her maj and have long felt that William and Harry are decent sorts, and that with them around the whole hideously outdated institution might have some sort of a future.

    I donít blame him, in fact I applaud him for taking a long, hard look at the whole s***show and thinking f that.

    The whole ďI donít click on links to that ragĒ thing that goes on I find your be nonsensical in the main, but I will 100% accept that folk close to the Hillsborough tragedy may be against the Sun, or that a grown man who as a child saw his mother hounded then ultimately killed by a rabid press would seek to protect his wife and family when it became clear the same thing was starting to happen to them.

    They're spoilt brats who should realise how lucky they are and shut up.
    Be like the Queen - never complain, never explain and keep your trousers on!

    I think Meghan has seen first hand how depraved the Royal Family are but she loves Harry and wants to take him away from it all and remove her family from danger, the comments from Harry seem to back this up IMO.

    I can't decide about this one. I'm very anti monarchy and Harry has always seemed the most likeable of the bunch.

    But I think the proof will be in the pudding. If they are serious they will step away completely from anything formal to do with the monarchy and ensure they don't take a single penny of their money.

    If they want to keep their wealth but not get involved in any of the duties they can bolt. It would also be have been nice if they'd done this before we spent £2.4m of our taxes on their new cottage.

    I wish I could step down from doing bugger all and still get paid. Hope the whole family bugger off over there with them.

    Losing their titles and no longer be paid, also paying back money for refurbishment of house.

    If they could go ahead and repay the wedding too that will be grand.
