While it's an overstatement to say the world is breathing a collective sigh of relief over the excision of the Sussexes from the royal family, we can be glad it was concluded with a modicum of grace and dignity.
One would hope statements by Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan and by Queen Elizabeth II will draw a line under this and ease the media pressure on the couple.
That said, the latter may just be too much to hope for.
The statements have clarified the position on key issues such as future use of titles and public income while leaving other matters to be resolved down the track.
While Prince Harry and Meghan will repay about $3 million in Sovereign Grant funds used to refurbish Frogmore Cottage it is not known if they will be required to pay rent for the property which remains their UK family home.
It is not known what level of support they will continue to receive from Prince Charles from his own revenues; something which, to be fair, is a private matter.
Also up in the air is whether or not the couple and their son, Archie, will receive publicly funded security while in the UK and overseas.
This is potentially problematic given the obvious blowback on the British government in the event of a major security incident, such as a terrorist attack or a kidnapping, involving one of the most high profile families on the planet.
The most significant condition, and one that was inevitable, was Prince Harry and Meghan's renunciation of the right to use the words "His (or Her) Royal Highness" in their titles.
While an issue of scant concern to their many supporters and admirers, this does put them in a select group whose previous members included Harry's mother, Diana.
The brouhaha over this has been given way too much oxygen at a time when Britain, Australia and the world are grappling with much more serious issues than ripples affecting the sixth in line to the throne.
An obvious future source of income for the couple is litigation for libel.
Boris Johnson, for example, will now be able to reclaim the ears of the British people in order to explain his plans for the much more important Brexit which will unfold over the next 18 months.
There is also the small matter of a potential war in the Middle East, tackling climate change and the bushfire crisis.
The good news is it doesn't look as if Harry and Meghan are going to be short of a crust. There is already talk of book deals, a children's book, Harry's mental health series with Oprah which will surely rate its socks off and even some kind of Netflix connection.
It is vital the couple be careful in their choices about what they do and who they choose as friends and associates however.
The Duke and Duchess of Windsor's flirtation with high level Nazis during visits to Germany in the late 1930s and Prince Andrew's association with Epstein are good examples of what not to do.
One point the tabloid press now needs to take into account is that the Sussexes are no longer bound in any way by the absurd convention under which the Royal Family has traditionally not responded to, or taken legal action over, attacks on members.
An obvious future source of income for the couple is litigation for libel and slander. Editors will need to be very sure of the facts before they rush into print or hit the "upload" button from now on.
This may lead to a sudden and irreversible interruption to the income of people such as Meghan's father and others.
It is time for the world to move on and, in doing so, to allow the Sussex's and the House of Windsor to do the same. There are much more important issues to be worrying about right here, right now, than this.
