The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stunned the media and royal watchers alike last night, when they made the joint announcement that they are stepping away from their royal duties to form a tag wrestling duo that will compete in the resurgent British professional wrestling league.

Speaking to newsmen last night, Meghan, resplendent in wrestling trunks and ring boots with Harry at her side in just a jewelled leotard, said: "My husband and I have decided to withdraw from the media spotlight to concentrate on becoming the world champeens of tag wrestling.

"We've always been massive fans of the sport, and often watch old footage of the wrestling on World of Sport in the olden days with Kent Walton as commentator.

"My favourite is Giant Haystacks, but Harry likes Mick McManus and Kendo Nagasaki.

"We haven't told The Queen yet but we're pretty sure she won't mind, as most of the old girls are fans of the grappling, and always have their favourite grunt and groan boy, so we're hoping she'll come along to our bouts and get behind us.

The royal couple's first bout will be this coming Saturday at The York Hall, Bethnal Green in East London, where they will go in against the popular and successful Heavyweight duo of Prince 'The Baby Crusher' Edward and his partner of 15 years, The Duchess of Kent, in a catchweight contest of 9 rounds with two pinfalls or a submission to decide the winner.
