Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will move to North America after stepping down

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will spend more time in North America as part of their decision to step back from the royal family, they have revealed.

The couple said they intend to become financially independent and split their time between the UK and North America.

The pair described living on both sides of the Atlantic as a 'geographic balance' which would enable them to raise their son Archie with an appreciation of royal tradition, while also providing them with 'space'.

In their statement, the couple said: "We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth and our patronages.

"This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity."
