The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's final day as royals was March 31, and on April 1, royal reporters noted that the office had officially closed, sharing screenshots of the automatic reply from the Sussexes, which reads, "Many thanks for your email. The office for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex has now closed."
Prior to the transition, the pair also shared their final Instagram post on the @SussexRoyal account, writing, "While you may not see us here, the work continues."
For the Sussexes' first day as members of the public, the British tabloids had some April Fools' Day fun, posting a photoshopped image of Prince Harry in sweats pushing a massive shopping cart of toilet paper, Clorox bleach, and paper towels amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Nice to see that even during a grave crisis Brit newspapers keep up the tradition of April Fool stories! pic.twitter.com/3WJKmZ4dWw
