On Friday, #BuckinghamPalace announced that #MeghanMarkle and #PrinceHarry would not be returning to their royal roles.
The couple left their royal roles in March last year; they will no longer maintain their patronage as anticipated.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family.” The statement continued, “Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.”
Prince Harry will lose his honorary military appointments, which will then be redistributed “among working members of The Royal Family.”
The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, the Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football League, the Royal National Theatre, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities are other trusts and sponsorships that will return to the Queen, 94.
Though Prince Harry and Meghan no longer use their prized titles of His/Her Highness, along with their titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, they will retain them. #news
