The statement also acknowledged that the Sussexes are beginning their new roles in a complicated time, amid the coronavirus outbreak.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would prefer that in the immediate weeks and months, the focus remains on the global response to COVID-19. However, we recognise there are outstanding questions relating to their future beyond their Household transition deadline,” reads the statement.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will spend the next few months focusing on their family and continuing to do what they can, safely and privately, to support and work with their pre-existing charitable commitments while developing their future non-profit organisation.”

Today’s statement comes shortly after reports that Harry, Meghan, and Archie have left Canada and moved to Los Angeles. At this point, it’s unclear if the move is a permanent one.
