Harry and Meghan's Exit from the Royal Family: Why They Left and Their New California Life with Commercial Ventures and Court Cases

Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, left the Royal Family in January 2020 and now live in California.
They stepped down due to media intrusion and frustration over not being able to develop their "SussexRoyal" brand.

Since then, they have been involved in commercial ventures, including Meghan's new lifestyle brand called American Riviera Orchard.

Harry remains a prince and fifth in line to the throne.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, kept their titles but are no longer referred to as His or Her Royal Highness.

Harry gave up his military titles.

When Harry's father, Charles, became King, their children became Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet of Sussex.

The family moved to California in 2020 and returned to the UK for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and her funeral in September 2022.

Harry attended Charles' coronation in 2023 without Meghan.

In 2024, Harry flew back for a brief meeting with Charles after the King was diagnosed with cancer.

Prince Harry has returned to London for court cases against newspaper publishers.

He and Meghan no longer have an official UK residence and were asked to leave Frogmore Cottage in early 2023.

Harry took the government to court over security as they were no longer covered by the security arrangements for senior royals after stepping back from their duties.
