Last week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they would be taking a step back from their roles as ‘senior’ members of the royal family.

They said they planned to divide their time between the UK and Canada and would be working to become financially indepenent.

Naturally, the public had plenty of thoughts on this and the shocking scenario was soon branded #Megxit on social media.

But people have now taken it one step further than just posting funny tweets and memes, as they’ve started making some actual Megxit-themed merchandise to mark the occasion.

Everything from t-shirts to cushions inspired by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex quitting have gone on sale on websites such as Etsy, Amazon, Redbubble and Zazzle.



Megxit means Megxit

Over on Etsy you can buy the motivational Megxit mug of your dreams for £11.18 plus postage and packaging.

The mug, made by MoonsicalStudios, defines Megxit as a noun and reads: “1. When you leave that toxic relationship to start living your best life.

“Ex: Harry pulled a Megxit and is moving to Canada.”

Um, think I just found my new work mug!



Regina George would approve


A number of Megxit items are being sold on Etsy

A different mug, made by Dobelto, turns the couple’s personal statement into our own personal statement, saying: “I have decided to step back as a senior member of my family.”

While FinalGirlTShirts have made a top and a mug which feature a cartoon of Meghan Markle and a take on a quote from Regina George in Mean Girls.

It proclaims: “Get in loser, we’re quitting monarchy.”

So fetch!



Keep calm and Megxit on

Over on Amazon there are 250 items to choose from when you search Megxit, including cushions, tote bags and popsockets for your phone.

Similarly RedBubble and Zazzle are selling T-shirts which feature slogans such as “Keep calm and Megxit on” and “Keep calm and cut the cord #Megxit”.

Prices for these range from £14 to £20 depending on the design.
