Today, Buckingham Palace officials released an official statement confirming that 36-year-old Prince Harry and his 39-year-old wife Meghan Markle will not return to their duties as senior members of the British royal family.

The couple decided to resign at the beginning of last year and officially stepped down from their previous duties at the end of March 2020. Then Queen Elizabeth II formally gave her grandson and his wife 12 months to finalize the decision. After the couple confirmed to Queen Elizabeth II that they were not going to return to their previous work, she deprived them of all royal privileges.

After conversations with the Duke, the Queen wrote a letter confirming that, having resigned as senior members of the royal family, the spouses could not continue to fulfill their duties related to public service. The honorary military appointments and patronage status of a number of organizations previously held by the Duke and Duchess will be returned to Her Majesty and then distributed among the working members of the royal family. Despite the fact that everyone is saddened by their decision, the Duke and Duchess still remain beloved members of the family.

The press secretary of Megan and Harry have already spoken about this. He noted that, despite stepping down from office, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remained committed to their duty throughout the year and provided support to organizations with which they previously worked, regardless of their official role.

A few days earlier, rumors spread in the press that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could lose their royal privileges due to the upcoming big interview with Oprah Winfrey: this will be a public appearance in which they will talk about their decision to step down from their royal duties and leave the UK (it should air on March 7).

According to rumors, this was not very happy in the palace: it was rumored that Queen Elizabeth II might even ask her grandson and his wife to refuse to work with the non-profit organizations they patronize, and also to deprive Prince Harry of all honorary military ranks. Sources close to the Duke and Duchess said that upon learning of this, Harry was very upset. However, even this circumstance did not make him change his previous decision. In addition, now the spouses will clearly not have time to work: they are preparing for the birth of their second child, which should be born at the end of May.
