In the case of the "DUKES" of Sussix what I see is a "royal" who realices that monarchy is a dead end carrer, so he is bailing out, so he and his family can have a normal and usuful life, untainted by the family and the media. The duke´s comments regarding royal responsibilities, are basicly meaningless, a way of getting away from dad and gran, whose feelings and sence of security are hurt. For me it would be best, now that the statement has been made, iss to just stop talking to the press and forgetting all about "royal" issues. As a "duke" of a non existent duchy, the title is virtually meaningless. his position in the line of succession means he Will always be a useless grandson, son, uncle to what ever comes - in film terms sort of a costumed walk on roll, a cardboard figure taking up space. Now the Dukes of Sussex as a couple Will have a chance to make something of themselves or not, either way of no importance or significanse in world terms.

I sincerely hope that Harry and Meghan will export Royalty to the benighted people falling under the spell of an "elected monarch" who thinks he's above the law.

I am not sure where you are comming from. Export what from where considering that culturally Hrry and Meghan come from different sides of the fence.

As a foreigner and a person of color I can´t see Meghan having much effect on the U.K. establishmnt. and the same with Harry on North America for the opposite reasons.

If they have an agenda it has nothing to do with change in either case, they probably just want to be left alone to do their own thing which is virtually impossible with Harry

caught between his wife and generation compared to his family and tradition.

The Sussex's are not bailing out , they are having a break , they will be supported by Private Family money , they will retain their titles and honors and will live the most comfortable of lives slightly out of the spot light

For all the nonsense being written it is self apparent they want nothing more than a break , he wants to be HRH she the same , they both want to have grace and favor homes and all the Range Rovers they can obtain .

Prince Charles is paying some £2.5 million annually to him and this will increase if he decides to take less from the Government Stipend

The Royals have taken a real bashing and will need time to reorganise themselves with their PR , no doubt Prince Philip will oblige and drop dead and the out pouring will be enormous with much pomp and pageant which will help paper over the current tough times The  House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (their original title) are currently experiencing .

Royalty solidifies alliances by marriage between ruling houses. 

Harry and Meghan would need to start travelling and meeting everyone in the US until they knew more people than anyone else there.

They'd have to smoosh politicians until the point where leaders came to them for a blessing.

Then the US would have a Royal Family that could stop them going off the rails.

I find that puzzling.

Meghan's career was in the US (I think) and she might want to go back to it. Harry, increasingly marginalised from a family enterprise that must be under a bit of financial strain, could be very tempted by the opportunities that he may think awaits him. Or a comfortable life playing second string to a seriously talented wife. I might not turn my nose up to such an opportunity.

I can't say I blame the  couple for changing their lifestyle.  I'd bet the farm that Meghan took one look at those hats she had to wear and that was the catalyst for the decision.  Kudos to  Harry &  Meghan for wishing to go it alone.

America had its Royal family and thankfully circumstances interfered and it was short-lived.  When Jackie and John-John died so, too, did the 'line'.

I'm not sure they ever attempted to function as "Royals".

Dedicating their lives to "causes", those things tending to bring people together.
