日前,哈里王子和梅根王妃突然在社交媒体上宣布,将退出王室职务并谋求经济独立。夫妻俩在做出这一决定前并没有通知女王和父兄,因此王室成员在得知这一突如其来的消息后都感到十分震惊和失望。

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, say they are stepping back from their roles as senior members of the British royal family and plan to work towards becoming "financially independent," the couple announced on Wednesday.

哈里王子和梅根王妃(苏塞克斯公爵夫人)1月8日宣布,将退出英国王室高级成员角色,并计划实现“经济独立”。

"After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year" they wrote on Instagram, explaining that they hope to "carve out a progressive new role within this institution."

两人在Instagram上写道:“经过多个月的反思和内部讨论,我们选择在今年完成过渡。”他们解释道,希望“在这个体制内开拓出一种进步的新角色”。

"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," they said.

他们说:“我们打算退出王室‘高级’成员的角色,谋求经济独立,与此同时,继续全力支持女王。”

Harry and Meghan did not consult any other members of the royal family about their decision, CNN has learned.

CNN获悉,哈里和梅根没有征求其他任何王室成员的意见就做出了这一决定。

There is said to be a mood of deep disappointment in the palace following the announcement; senior members of the family are hurt as a result of the news.

据说消息宣布后王室上下感到非常失望,王室的高级成员们感觉很受伤。

In a statement issued just hours after the couple's Instagram post, Buckingham Palace said the situation was "complicated."

哈里梅根夫妇在Instagram上发帖仅仅几个小时后,白金汉宫就发布声明称,情况“很复杂”。

"Discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage," the unsigned Royal Communications statement said. "We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through."

这份没有署名的王室通信声明称:“我们还在和苏塞克斯公爵及公爵夫人进行初步讨论。我们理解他们想另辟蹊径的愿望,但这是需要花时间来解决的复杂问题。”

In their social media post, the couple revealed they plan to split their time between the UK and North America.

在社交媒体的帖子中,哈里梅根夫妇公布了他们打算在英国和北美两地往来居住的计划。

"This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity," they wrote.

他们写道:“这种地理上的平衡可以让我们的儿子学会欣赏王室家族的传统,又能让我们的家庭有开辟未来的空间,包括创建新的慈善机构。”

"We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support."

“我们期待在适当的时候与大家分享激动人心的下一步的全部细节,与此同时,我们也会同女王、威尔士亲王、剑桥公爵和所有相关人员继续合作。在那之前,请让我们对你们的持续支持表达最深的感谢。”

The Duke and Duchess have long had a fraught relationship with sections of the British media. In October last year, the couple announced that Meghan was suing the Mail on Sunday newspaper, alleging it had illegally published a private letter to her father -- a claim the newspaper denies.

长时间以来,苏塞克斯公爵及公爵夫人一直和英国部分媒体关系紧张。去年十月,他们宣布梅根将起诉《周日邮报》,宣称该报在非法刊登了一封她写给父亲的私人信件,而该报否认了这一指控。

At the same time, Harry launched an emotional attack on the UK tabloid press for what he called a "ruthless campaign" against his wife.

与此同时,哈里王子对这家英国通俗报刊发起了情绪激烈的攻击,斥责其对妻子的“无情报道”。

He likened their treatment of her to that faced by his mother. Princess Diana died in 1997 when her car crashed as it was being pursued by members of the paparazzi.

他将《周日邮报》对待梅根的方式与他母亲当年的遭遇相比较。戴安娜王妃1997年死于狗仔队追逐导致的车祸。

The couple feel that they can win these court cases on the basis that they do have a right to a private life.

哈里梅根夫妇认为他们可以赢得这些诉讼案件,依据是他们有权拥有私人生活。

Members of the royal family are often criticized for not allowing enough public access, given that they are publicly funded, and now the Duke and Duchess are effectively saying, "Okay, you win, we're out."

王室成员们经常因为曝光不够而受到批评,理由是王室开销是由民众买单的。如今苏塞克斯公爵夫妇就是在说:“好,你们赢了,我们退出”。

对于这个消息,推特上什么反应都有,还有网友专门造了个词Megxit(梅根退出)。

有些人很自然地将梅根作为攻击目标,说她堪比导致披头士乐队解散的小野洋子。

爱操心的网友甚至开始担心二人未来的生计问题。

哈里和梅根现在是要去油管开个频道吗?

正在追英剧《王冠》的网友则表示,这下梅根可以去该剧本色出演自己了。
