Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's split from the royal family has been one of the biggest news events from the British royals since the days of Princess Diana. The unprecedented move shocked the world and showed that the British monarch's long-reigning tradition of silence and stoicism may not hold for much longer. The infamous Oprah interview revealed the royal couple's reasons for separating themselves from the royal institution, exposing a terribly dark side to their supposed fairy-tale.
Prince Edward, the Queen's youngest son, has recently spoken out on the situation in an interview with CNN. He expressed some sympathy and understanding for the young couple's struggles, claiming that all members of the royal family have suffered the intrusion of the media into their private lives. He asserted that each member deals with this issue in a different way, and that he wishes them the best of luck. Prince Edward seemed to tread a fine line by offering his support and understanding to Prince Harry and Meghan, while avoiding comment on any of the allegations made against the royal family and their role in the drama. He simply said "It's difficult for everyone but that's families for you."
So, what really happened? The only way to understand that is to go back to the beginning. From their tale of romance to resignation, to a renewed sense of purpose, click through to see the biggest royal crisis in decades, and what Harry and Meghan have been up to since then.
