Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Lose All Honorary Titles

According to an announcement made by Buckingham Palace, Prince Harry will give up his honorary military appointments and patronages after confirming to Queen Elizabeth II that he and his wife Meghan Markle will not return as working royals.

Both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is formally known as The Duke and Duchess of Sussex rocked the British monarchy when they quit frontline royal duties about a year ago.

The royal couple after quitting the frontline royal duties embarked on a new life involving several commercial ventures in the United States and currently living in California.

During an emergency summit with Queen Elizabeth II under the initial terms of their departure in early 2020, Prince Harry had agreed to review the decision a year on.

Now both The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family, according to the Buckingham Palace.

The Queen had given written confirmation 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. So the honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to the Queen and will be redistributed among working members of The Royal Family later.

Prince Harry is a former military soldier and he holds several honorary military titles. He also has Commonwealth appointments and some other patronages.

Meghan Markle was also handed over several honorary roles after her wedding with Prince Harry in a fairy-tale ceremony at Windsor Castle in May, 2018.

Harry and Meghan soon are expecting their second child.
