This is going to make an excellent episode of The Crown in the future.

We're spilling some royal-tea! Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry shocked the world with their announcement yesterday; the two will be "stepping back" as senior members of the royal family.

The couple revealed that, as a result, they would be spending more time in North America.

After a turbulent year which saw a widening rift with the media and reports of differences with elder brother Prince William, Harry said the couple hoped to become financially independent and set up a new charity, while continuing some royal duties.

Twitter has already brilliantly named the movie #Megxit:

Ooh another good one!

We're onboard with leaving toxicity behind in 2019

Can you really blame the couple for not wanting to put up with this scrutiny?

Pakistan too. We're still not over our colonial hangover so could work!

Show us the lie...

Can't wait!
