Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘s Royal Retirement.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced last week that they will “step back” as senior royals. Social media went nuts.

FFor many people, the biggest news of the last seven days was the release of the first material from BTS’s new album. For others, it was the wildfires still burning in Australia, causing untold, unbelievable damage to wildlife and exposing just how information is controlled in Australian media. Also, there was a plane crash in Tehran that seems to have been the result of a missile strike. In the US, President Trump proposed big changes to a key environmental law while his impeachment continues to be loom. All in all, it’s safe to say the world has had less eventful first weeks of the year. But, hey. What else have people been talking about on the internet over the last week? Let’s take a look.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Retreat From Royal Duties.

What Happened: The UK’s Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle — the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — announced that they will be stepping down as senior members of the royal family. You can do that?

What Really Happened: Last week brought some unexpected news for folks who thought that being a member of the British royal family was, you know, kind of a lifetime gig. Yes, that’s right—in a move that no one saw essentially coming, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex  resigned  as  members  of  the  royal  familywhich is apparently possible. For the most part, the general response from the internet seemed to be one of surprised admiration. Some people were far from thrilled.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the whole thing wasn’t that Harry and Meghan were going it alone but, instead, that they announced it seemingly without telling the rest of the royal family. That’s going to make the next big family reunion awkward. Well, at least they waited until after the holidays to tell everyone.
