Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had a dramatic month with one monumental news coming after another, and the drama doesn’t seem to end anytime soon. It was recently revealed that the former royals will never be returning to their royal duties. In addition to bidding goodbye to their royal duties, the duo will also not be able to keep their patronages, also known as their royal involvement with numerous U.K. charities, according to the Buckingham Palace via The Sun.

 

The Sun reported that the palace officially confirmed the news and stated: “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 palace said. “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.”

 

Harry will lose his honorary military appointments, which will be redistributed “among working members of The Royal Family.” Other trusts and patronages that will revert to the Queen include the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, the Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football League, the Royal National Theatre, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, via People. They will however retain their His/Her Highness titles, along with their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles, although they do not use them. “While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family,” the Buckingham Palace announcement also said.

Good decision by the Queen. However in this day and age it makes more sense to abolish the the monarchy than downsizing it.
