It is said to be a huge clue that Megxit is for life

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly given a huge clue that they have quit the royal family for good.

The couple announced at the beginning of the year that they were stepping away from royal duties.

But according to sources, Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made a bold move that proves Megxit is forever.

Reports claim the pair, who are parents to one-year-old son Archie, have stopped using the Queen's lawyers.

Harry, 35, has apparently used the London-based firm, Harbottle & Lewis, since he was a teen.

They are, however, said to have instructed a different firm to represent their new charitable organisation.

A source told the Daily Mail: "It would appear to demonstrate that they have no intention of coming back."

Another insider added: "They wanted to instruct their own lawyers, not those also used by the Royal Family."

The Duke and Duchess later moved to Los Angeles; a decision that stunned the world.

It was branded 'Megxit' by royal commentators.

Prince Harry and Meghan had hoped to earn their own money while still supporting the Queen.

However, they were told it would not be allowed.

The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly.

At the time, Harry said: "The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly.

"It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges ... there really was no other option.

"...I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am.
