Buckingham Palace released a statement on Friday confirming that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won't return as working royals. The announcement took over the internet when it became official that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will in fact step down. Last year, Prince Harry and Meghan had shared their plans to step down, which came with a one-year review period.  Queen Elizabeth had commented on Prince Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down with a written statement.

"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," the palace statement said. As a response to the statement made by the palace, The Sussexes expressed their commitment to service, stating "We can all live a life of service. Service is universal." Prince Harry and Meghan's office also shared how the pair, regardless of their official role, continues to remain committed to their duty and service to the United Kingdom and around the world. Prince Harry and Meghan’s commitment to their duties received applause, as people discussed the matter online.

The prince will lose his honorary military appointments, which will be redistributed among working members of The Royal Family. Meanwhile, other trusts and patronages like The Queen's Commonwealth Trust, the Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football League, the Royal National Theatre, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities will revert to Queen Elizabeth.

Such a badly raised lady. No sense of respectfulness. Then she wonder why she never earns any respect from any corner of good people.

What public service are the royals doing other than photo ops and zoom calls?

I think that the whole royal family thing is a disgusting relic of the past and should be abolished as it is archaic in nature and not compatible with the 21st century.

You don't even know Meghan and your statement is not only racist it's disgusting. I see you blame only her, calling her a hypocrite saying nothing about Harry. Your comments expose you and you alone. It is you who has sour grapes. Meghan has done nothing to you, and if she'd met you, she'd treat you with much more kindness than you have shown her here. Well, at least she makes you feel better about yourself since you feel the need to put her beneathe you with your words. I'm sure you'll have a nice day now. Just remember the lesson of life "You will eat the fruit of your words" do you really want bitter fruit?

Meghan & Harry are 2 strong people who requested to be released from Royal duties.The Queen accepted that for1 year & now has rejected their royal status. I applaud them for knowing&having the guts to live it. The Queen does not have a right to think she can tell them what to do. Because they made their wishes known. Children are to raise & let them go to live their lives.
