The Duke and Duchess of Sussex started 2020 with a bang, declaring their intention to step back from their roles as senior royals and carve out a different future.
The early announcement prompted urgent negotiations with the royal family, with an initial deal thrashed out to give Prince Harry and Meghan the freedom they were looking for.
The couple's plans are still forming, but the wheels are now very definitely in motion. So what is it like to make such a radical change to your career - and how do you make it a success? And what does entering the world of celebrity mean for the Sussexes' future?
