Such timing on the Hofdames part! We launch a drama-free royal blog and all sorts of dramatic announcements have been made in the last year. The latest is of course the announcement from Sussex Royal, which can be found on their Instagram page, and which we have embedded below.
There are a couple of points we would like to make on this. First, it’s obviously a situation that is not completely settled, and second, it’s a situation that’s ripe for speculation and wild conjecture. All of us have opinions on it, but they are just that, and with that in mind, we are going to keep discussion of this development off of this blog. We know there are lots of places on the internet where it can be dissected, and everyone knows where to find them.
While the Duke and Duchess sort out their future arrangements, we will continue to cover their official duties on this blog, and their clothing choices as well. We hope to continue to cover those things for years to come.
Thanks, everyone, for following us and helping us adhere to our mission!

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. 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. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
