Prince Harry and Meghan quitting their roles as senior royals looked set to be the year's big news - but as they begin their new life this week, the world has bigger things on its mind.
The Sussexes' goodbye post on their Instagram account reflected the changed mood and they have much to mull as they settle in to LA.
Pod Save The Queen host Ann Gripper (@anngripper) is joined by Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers (@rjmyers) and Mirror Online lifestyle editor Zoe Forsey (@zoeforsey) to discuss that farewell message, what comes next and their highlights of the Duke and Duchess's brief time as a working royal power couple.
And Christine Ross (@christine_effie), editor of the Meghan's Mirror blog, picks her fashion highlights - and predicts the wardrobe changes we will see in Meghan's new life.
