Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Move Out of Mom’s Basement

VANCOUVER ISLAND, Canada — Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, have announced earlier this month that they intend to move out of their mother’s basement and live their lives independently of the British Royal Family. Their strong anime fandom was revealed to be a major reason for their decision to step back from the Royal Family.

“There is a little known rule that all British Royalty must have a first allegiance to British animation,” explained Harry. “ I like Wallace & Grommit and Danger Mouse fine, but for me the only god I hold is Haruhi and the only monarch I truly recognize is Lelouch vi Britannia.”

“Harry’s mom doesn’t make us chicken tenders anymore,” said Meghan while stuffing dakimakura covers into a box of figurines. “I think it’s time we moved somewhere where we are appreciated.”

With royal responsibilities now no longer an issue, Harry and Meghan plan to spend more time focused on improving the world for otaku.

“We’re planning to move to Japan and teach English! There our interest in anime will be celebrated and we can finally fit in,” Harry told Anime Maru.

“Maybe we’ll find work for Studio Ghibli. I am so excited to finally follow our hopes and dreams.”
