There's no denying that being a member of the Royal Family takes its toll, and we need look no further than what Princess Diana's butler said about her private life to find proof of that. In a rare royal interview with ITV News, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry revealed that the constant barrage of negative attention from the British tabloids made their first couple years of marriage difficult to navigate. Just a few short months after that interview, the couple shocked the internet by announcing they would "step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family" in an Instagram post.
However, the people of the internet weren't alone in their shock. Shortly after the news broke, Buckingham Palace issued its own statement, igniting rampant speculation that Meghan and Harry announced their decision without talking to anyone in the Royal Family, including the Queen. Understandbly so, people had thoughts, and many took to Twitter to share their hilarious reactions to the news.
