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 couples 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, were 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”。

The Sussexes decision to step back from leading roles within the royal family means they will no longer participate in the Royal Rota system, which gives UK broadcasters and newspapers access to royal engagements, according to the official SussexRoyal website.

根据“苏塞克斯皇家人”官网发布的消息,苏塞克斯公爵夫妇决定退出王室主要职务意味着他们将“不再参与王室轮值体系”,这一体系让英国的广播公司和报纸得以报道皇家事务。

Harry, 35, the younger son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and Meghan, a former actor best known for her role in legal drama Suits, 38, met in 2016.

35岁的哈里和38岁的梅根于2016年相遇。哈里是查尔斯王子和戴安娜王妃的小儿子;梅根曾经是一名演员,最著名的影视作品是律政剧《金装律师》。

They were married in a lavish, star-studded ceremony at St. Georges Chapel in Windsor in May 2018.

2018年5月,他们在温莎城堡的圣乔治礼拜堂举行了盛大婚礼,现场明星云集。

The couple welcomed their first child, son Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, in May 2019.

哈里梅根夫妇在2019年5月迎来了第一个孩子——儿子阿奇·哈里森·蒙巴顿·温莎。

The Sussexes and baby Archie spent the recent Christmas holidays in Canada with Meghans mother, Doria Ragland.

去年圣诞节,苏塞克斯夫妇和宝宝阿奇在加拿大和梅根母亲多丽娅·拉格兰一起度过。

On Tuesday, they paid a visit to Canada House, in London, to thank officials for the hospitality shown to them while they were there.

1月7日,他们拜访了伦敦的加拿大之家,感谢官员对他们在加拿大期间的热情接待。

外媒报道哈里王子夫妇将从英国高级王室成员的角色中退出,将来会去工作,实现财务独立。避开王室经费支持,投入他们在慈善事业上的工作。这是白金汉宫发布的一个声明,声明还表示两人将会花在英国和北美洲的时间平衡分配。这大概的意思是他们可能会在美国与英国生活,看来梅根可能不是很适应英国皇室呆板的生活模式。哈里夫妇还没有具体详述他们下一步的去向,但会继续与祖母英女王、父亲查尔斯王子及哥哥威廉王子合作。

这份声明两人表示是经过几个月的反思和内部讨论,2020年选择为过渡年,开始在慈善机构逐步发挥新的作用。


原因还是来自梅根王妃,婚前她是美国女演员,早已经习惯生活在媒体的关注下,但婚后她很难完成王室成员的身份转变,饱受王室质疑。哈里王子曾经为老婆梅根炮轰英国媒体,指责媒体对待梅根过于苛刻。

现年38岁的梅根王妃,具有非洲裔血统,出演过好莱坞电影《恶老板》、《金装律师》等电影,具有一定知名度,2018年5月19日和哈里王子结婚,同年10月15日宣布怀孕,2019年5月6日,梅根诞下一名男婴,这个孩子将是英国王位的第7顺位继承人。


从声明来看,哈里夫妇想在英国和美国生活,梅根可能不是很习惯在英国居住,当然她不可能再从事演艺事业,这个英国王室也没有先例,能够自食其力,不靠经费供养,这个也是王室先例吧?其实他们即使不接受经费供给,他们也能够凭借两人的能力和知名度谋职生活。

网友爆料,哈里夫妇打算搬到加拿大居住,传闻还声称梅根和凯特王妃不和,甚至去年的圣诞节都没有和皇室成员一起度过。


据悉在发布声明之前,梅根王妃和哈里王子刚从加拿大结束为期6周的假期回到英国,开始了新年后的系列拜访活动,他们还走访了位于伦敦的加拿大自家,这是两人新年后的高调亮相。度完假归来的梅根看起来气色很不错,有点容光焕发,看来她并不是打算回到美国居住,而是选择去加拿大定居,这个看来也是很令人震惊。

看来英国媒体也是很八卦,传闻梅根和凯特王妃不和,但梅根在自己的INS账号上传了和凯特王妃一起观看温布顿网球公开赛的照片,两人站在观众席,面带微笑,看起来很开心,而梅根的身体还略微倾向凯特王妃,媒体分析这是梅根在向大家传递一个信号,表示她和凯特王妃关系不错,并没有所谓的不和。

梅根是皇室第一个混血王妃,加上是演员出身,现在又要退出英国高级王室成员,这一些列动作表明,梅根并不是很受待见,但也表明她无法委屈自己迁就传统的生活方式。
