Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Prince Harry tells of 'great sadness that it has come to this'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Prince Harry has spoken of his 'great sadness' at leaving the Royal Family and said he and Meghan had 'no other option' than to quit senior royal duties - but vowed the couple are 'not just walking away'.

The Duke of Sussex was at a formal private dinner at the Ivy in Chelsea for Sentebale, the charity supporting young people affect by HIV and Aids that he founded in 2006, when he made the comments.

In an emotional speech, the 35-year-old said the royal couple had hoped to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth and his military associations, without any public funding.

Insisting that the UK would always be his home, he maintained that his wife, Meghan, 'upholds the same values as I do' and was 'excited' and 'hopeful' about playing a full royal role after their wedding.

But he said now 'there really was no other option' but to step back – a decision which, he said, was 'not one I made lightly'.
