In the post, Prince Harry and Meghan assured fans that they may not be seen in public but they will keep working behind the scenes in a bid to better the lives of others.

''As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here, the work continues. Thank you to this community for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon. You have been great! Until then, please take good care of yourselves, and of one another,'' the post read in part.

The latest development came about four months after the couple disclosed their intentions to relinquish their royal status.

As earlier reported by TUKO.co.ke, the lovebirds shocked the world in January after announcing they intended to "step back" from the royal family, split their time between the United Kingdom and North America, and start paying their own bills.

"Thank you to this community for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon. You’ve been great!" the couple wrote social media.

In early March, Harry and Meghan returned to the United Kingdom from their home on Vancouver Island, Canada, for their final engagements as senior royals.

The move marked the end of the couple's short era, an era that saw the two go from being everyone's darling to being rejected by a cross-section of the British media and public.
