Harry says he and Meghan had ‘no other option’ but stand down

The Duke of Sussex has said that he and his wife were standing down from the royal family with "great sadness", but there was "no other option".

Harry said he and Meghan had hoped to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth and his military associations, without any public funding, but this was not possible.

In his first public speech since the couple's decision to step down as senior royals, Harry said he wanted his family to have a "more peaceful" life.
