They even said goodbye to their royal Instagram account @SussexRoyal on March 30 with a final send-off.

They've also shut down the comments on all of their previous posts and made it impossible for users to write any new ones.

"We are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute," they wrote.

Their plans of leaving the royal family in an official capacity first shocked the world back in January.

In an Instagram post shared on January 8, they wrote that their decision to "step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent" came after "many months of reflection and internal discussions."

A few weeks later, after much internal discussion, the Queen gave her grandson and Meghan her blessing.

For most, the drastic move appeared to be a long time coming, as Meghan has had to deal with negative press ever since she became Harry's girlfriend.

This past summer, especially, the British tabloids had it out for her.

Their departure also comes from them wanting their son Archie to have a normal life.

A source recently told People that the couple has moved to Los Angeles — Meghan's hometown.

Before that, they had stayed on Vancouver Island in Canada.

“With Meghan, what began as a client relationship quickly turned into a dear friendship and she welcomed me into their lives,” wrote facialist Sarah Chapman on Instagram.

“I feel very grateful to be a small part of their journey observing the passion for everything they do and compassion for the causes and people they meet, but also to witness the moments other people don’t see.”

She also wrote that what you see is what you get with the couple.

“Who they are at home, as parents, as partners, and friends, the kind and very down to earth people they are when no one is watching,” Chapman continued.

Take that, Meghan haters!

With the couple now reportedly living in Los Angeles, Meghan is back to her old stomping grounds.

This means that she can work with some of the talented people she worked with before becoming a royal.

This includes makeup artist Daniel Martin who has been with the actress since her Suits days.

He also did her gorgeous makeup for her royal wedding back in May 2018.

The makeup artist has worked with several other celebs, including Nina Dobrev, Elisabeth Moss, and Kaley Cuoco.
