So when you are waiting for the bus or train, or hanging out with your Chinese friends or colleagues, you heard them say something like:
Hālǐ wángzǐ fūfù wèihé cóng wángshì “chūzǒu”?
Why did Prince Harry and his wife “run away” from the royal family?
…you would know they are talking about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their recent debacle with the Royal Family.
So let me break it down for you:
