Harry says ‘no other option’ to leaving senior royal role

The Duke of Sussex has spoken publicly about his decision to step back from Royal duties – calling it “a great sadness”.

Prince Harry said it was a sign of the pressures he was under, that he has stepped back from “all he has ever known” in search of a more peaceful life. But with an appearance alongside Boris Johnson at a UK-Africa Trade Summit this morning, it’s unclear how attainable that peaceful life is going to be.
