JANUARY 19, 2020LONDON, UK, 19 JANUARY 2020SOURCE: @SUSSEXROYAL INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTNO RESALESOUNDBITE - Prince Harry (man, English, 56 sec):'The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks, after so many years of challenges, and I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes there really was no other option. What I want to make clear is we're not walking away, and we certainly aren't walking away from you. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible. I've accepted this, knowing that it doesn't change who I am or how committed I am, but I hope that helps you understand what it had come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.'
