The recent announcement by Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has sent shock waves to many people in the United Kingdom and around the globe.
The couple announced on Wednesday that they will step back from senior roles in Britain's royal family and spend more time in North America or Canada.
The announcement appears to have taken his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, by surprise.
The news started #Megxit on twitter and people have expressed different views on the matter.
Bongani Bingwa speaks to Eyewitness News UK correspondent Gavin Grey about what the general reaction is in London.
The more that's coming out the more it looks like a couple that actually acted on their own. They weren't keeping it entirely secret, they were saying there were looking towards a new life.Gavin Grey, UK correspondent - Eyewitness News
What has absolutely stunned everyone - the royal watchers, the general public and it would also appear their UK based staff - is that they just suddenly announced it without the details being worked through.Gavin Grey, UK correspondent - Eyewitness News
Another thing in this statement is that they will be financially independent. Well, I calculate that Harry gets roughly R90-million a year from the British taxpayer.Gavin Grey, UK correspondent - Eyewitness News
Is he honestly saying as an army major he and his wife have the suitable qualifications to go earn that sort of money elsewhere?Gavin Grey, UK correspondent - Eyewitness News
