Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are free of royal family, says Ronnie Woods ex

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sent shockwaves around the world when they decided to step back from the royal family and relocate to the US.

Ronnie Wood's ex-wife Jo, 67, has spoken out about her thoughts on their decision to move to Montecito, Los Angeles and step down as senior royals.

She told Express.co.uk: "They can do what they want, they're young, they're free.

"Whatever they want to do, it's not it's not up to me to have an opinion about what they do, it's not my business."

Jo's comments comes eight years after her ex-husband Ronnie joked that Harry warned him off his girlfriend at the time Cressida Bonas at Glastonbury festival.

Recalling the encounter at the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards, Wood recounted: "He introduced me to his bird.

"I gave her a cuddle and he said, 'Oi, get your hands off'. It was great to see him."

Harry and Meghan moved over to the US back in 2020 after spending more time in Canada, with the pair making the announcement two years ago.

A statement at the time read: "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.

"We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen."

It continued: "It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.

"We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages."

Meghan and Harry now live in California with their two children, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, and have raked in huge deals with Netflix and Spotify.

Meghan is set to host her own podcast with Spotify, a move which has seen her and Harry's production company Archewell Audio now being estimated to be worth $33 million.
