China News Service, March 31 (Li Hongyu, Kong Qingling) On March 31, Prince Harry and his wife Megan, 35, will formally withdraw from the British royal family and start a new role and new life in the United States.
At the time of the "fade out of the royal family", the future life of the Harry and his wife still attracted much attention. The change of status not only caused controversy over who should pay for the security premiums of the two, but also made the outside world curious about how they will achieve financial independence in the future.
On May 8, 2019, local time, Prince Harry and Meghan of the United Kingdom took their little prince to the public for the first time.
Goodbye, Your Highness, Harry
Harry and his wife officially retire from royal office
"After months of thought, we decided to make a change this year and start an aggressive new role-we decided to withdraw from the ranks of the royal family and strive for economic independence while continuing to support the Queen fully."
On January 8, 2020, Prince Harry and his wife Megan announced their decision to withdraw from royal office on social media, and the news triggered a stir. The British people also coined a new word "MEGXIT" for this purpose, echoing Britain's Brexit drama that lasted for several years.
Although the Harry Megan and his wife explained that the decision would benefit their eight-month-old son Archie, the British royal family said they were "injured" and "deeply disappointed" because they had not consulted any royal members before the announcement.
On May 8, 2019, local time, Prince Harry and Meghan of England took their newborn son and took a group photo at St. George's Hall in Windsor Castle.
A few days later, Queen Elizabeth II declared after the emergency meeting of royal members that she supported Prince Harry's decision to abandon senior membership and incidental responsibilities of the British royal family and start a "new life".
However, Buckingham Palace later announced that Harry and Meghan would no longer use the title "His Royal Highness", no longer perform royal duties, no longer receive public funds for performing royal duties, and no longer officially represent the Queen of England.
After the Buckingham Palace issued a statement, the Harry Megan and his wife officially resigned as senior members of the royal family on March 31.
Harry, who has entered the "resignation" countdown, is gradually adjusting his status. When he attended a public event in February, let everyone not call him the prince, just call him Harry.
On January 21, 2020 local time, on a boat in Sanic Bay, north of Sanic, British Columbia, Canada, you can see Prince Harry and his wife Megan's residence near Deep Bay.
From the UK to Canada, from finance to security
How did Prince Harry start a new life?
Since the announcement of the resignation of the Harry and the senior members of the royal family, the outside world has been paying attention to their new life in the future. Where will they move to live? How to achieve financial independence? How to solve the security problem?
They had stated that they would travel between Britain and North America after resigning from the royal family. Meghan also took his son to Canada first. However, the security costs of their couples living in Canada have caused much controversy.
Some security experts estimate that the annual security spending of the Harry family may be between $ 10 million and $ 30 million. Canadians have been arguing over who should pay for this huge security cost. Polls show that more than 70% of Canadians believe they should not be responsible for the safety and other expenses of the Harry couples.
The Canadian federal government also confirmed at the end of February that, as the status of the Harry Meghans changed, Canada would soon stop providing security for them.
In addition to security costs, how the Harry couples achieved financial independence also attracted much attention. When they announced their "exit from the royal family," they said they sought to become financially independent because they "valued their ability to earn professional income." However, the details of their career plans are unknown to the outside world.
Local time on May 19, 2018, the British Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle held a wedding in Windsor Castle, UK. The picture shows the newcomer in the church.
Next stop, United States
"We need each other more than ever"
When the outsiders thought that the Harry Morgans would live in Canada for a long time, the two moved to a family near Los Angeles, California, and Hollywood before the border between Canada and the United States temporarily closed due to the outbreak.
Currently, the Harry and his wife are living in isolation according to local recommendations. The Fox News Network quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that the couple is currently trying to spend as much time as possible alone. They also wrote, "This is a period of uncertainty. Now we need each other more than ever."

And as the Harry family moved to Los Angeles, who borne the security costs in the United States became a hot topic. On March 29, US President Trump said the government would not pay for the security costs of the two. To this end, the couple's spokesman said that a privately funded security plan had been developed.
Although the US government has refused to pay security fees, this place may mean more opportunities for them. The Walt Disney Company of the United States confirmed that a documentary about elephants, narrated by Meghan, will be broadcast on "Disney Nature" on April 3. This is allegedly the first job since Megan announced his removal from the royal family.
From Britain to Canada to the United States; from the dismissal of the royal family to the first job; starting today, the Harry Megan and his wife will officially start a new chapter in future life. (Finish)
