LONDON (AP) – Buckingham Palace confirmed Friday that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will no longer hold royal duties and that he will renounce his honorary military titles.
When the couple parted ways with real life full time in early 2020, it was agreed that there would be a review within a year.
The palace said in a statement that “they will not return as working members of the Royal Family.”
He said Enrique’s appointment as captain general of the Royal Marine Corps and other military units will return to Queen Elizabeth to be awarded to other members of the family.
In early 2020, Meghan and Harry announced that they were resigning from royal duties and moving to North America due to what they called the unbearable invasions and racist attitudes in the British press. They live in Santa Barbara, California and are expecting their second child, who would be the younger brother or sister of the boy Archie.
They recently announced that they will be hosting a TV special with host Oprah Winfrey.
A spokesman for the couple said in a statement that “as their work over the past year demonstrated, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world and have offered their support to the organizations they have represented regardless of the actual role. We can all lead a life of service. The service is universal ”.
