Markle has retired from acting after her engagement, answering quietly "yes" when asked if she is giving up her career in their first joint interview. Meghan said, “But I don't see it as giving anything up, I just see it as a change." Harry jumped in to say, "It's a new challenge," leading Markle to continue, "It's a new chapter, right? And also, keep in mind, I've been working on my show for seven years, so we were very, very fortunate to be able to have that sort of longevity on a series, and for me, once we hit the hundred-episode marker, I thought, 'You know what? I have ticked this box and I feel really proud of the work I've done there...'"
When asked if he felt a sense of responsibility for what he is asking Markle to do, Harry replied, “Of course. That sense of responsibility was essentially from day one, or maybe a couple of months in when I suddenly realized, 'Actually, this is, you know, I feel, I know that I'm in love with this girl and I hope that she's in love with me, but we still have to sit down on the sofa and I still, you know, I still have to have some pretty, you know, frank conversations with her.'"
He described the responsibility of being a member of the royal family as "a big deal" but said, "At the end of the day, she chooses me and I choose her, and therefore, whatever we have to tackle together or individually will always be us together as a team... She's capable of anything."
The palace also took to Twitter to reveal that they will “undertake their first official engagements together in Nottingham this Friday.”
A few weeks ago, Harry popped the question to Meghan during a “cozy night” at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace. The pair have been dating for a little over a year.
