‘I recognise the challenge they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish to live a more independent life. I want to thank them for their dedicated work across the country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family. 

‘It is my whole families hope that today’s agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life.’
