Harry and Meghan Says No To Royal Work

The couple has been stripped of a number of honorary military appointments and royal patronages which will now revert to the monarch to be ‘redistributed among working members of The Royal Family’.

The decision was made following conversations between the Duke of Sussex and members of the Royal Family almost one year after the pair initially stepped down.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement today that ‘all are saddened’, but they ‘remain much-loved members of the family’.

A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan said: ‘As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world, and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role.

We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.’ The titles and patronages that will return to the Queen include The Royal Marines, RAF Honington, Royal Navy Small Ships and Diving. The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, The Rugby Football Union, The Rugby Football League, The Royal National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities will also be taken back.

A statement said:’They have enabled us to make fast progress and have helped us to take the organisation to readiness for its next phase.

We are glad that they remain in our circle of supporters.’ A statement from Buckingham Palace today 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.

‘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.
