Prince Harry Says He Will ‘Never Walk Away’ From the British Royal Family
Now that Megxit is finalized, the Duke of Sussex is getting candid about his decision and why he would never actually turn his back on his family or his duties.
Prince Harry boldly resigned from his role as a senior working member of the British royal family last year. It was a move that no one saw coming since the prince had been in the royal fold for his entire life.
Now, in a surprise appearance on The Late Late Show on Feb. 25, 2021, the prince got candid with James Corden about why they decided that leaving with their only option.
Why did Prince Harry leave the British royal family?
When Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex announced Megxit in January 2020, it was obvious that they were having some major struggles in the royal fold. The British media was vicious to the duchess and the couple couldn’t quite seem to find their royal stride.
“Since [Prince Harry’s] move to Los Angeles, they have been in regular contact,” a source told The Sun. “Charles is not an avid user of texts but there are video and phone calls. Charles is determined that it is not an obstacle. Charles knows what it is like to be conflicted within the royal household. Harry has always been his own man and will do what he thinks is right.”
While there is still a bit of tension between Harry and Prince William, they are chatting regularly now, and the Duke of Sussex is still very close to his father, Prince Charles.

During his chat with Cordon, Prince Harry clarified that stepping back for a more private life outside of the royal spotlight was in no way abandoning his family. He’s also made it clear that he and Meghan will continue to have a life of service.
