Harry and Meghan clarified to the Queen that they will not return to their royal duties

Former Prince and Duchess are handing back their royal patronages. The statement issued by Buckingham Palace “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.” It added, “The honorary military appointments and royal patronages held by the duke and duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of the royal family”. Moreover, “While all are saddened by their decision, the duke and duchess remain much-loved members of the family.”

“As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world and have offered their continued support to the organizations they have represented regardless of official role. We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.” A representative for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said. 

However, it took them 12 months to decide about their future as royals as they hinted about being financially independent at Sandringham Summit last year. Since then they have had beneficial contacts with Netflix and Spotify. However, the sources claim that the decision was made after discussing it with the royal family. 

The patronages to have capitulated include the Royal Marines, RAF Honing ton, Royal Navy Small Ships, and Diving, the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, the Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football League, the Royal National Theatre, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities. Moreover, Harry will retain some private patronages, including his Invictus Games.

However, Meghan will lose both patronages that were handed on to her by the Queen, at the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities. She has also had to give up her role as vice-president of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.

“We would like to thank Prince Harry for his time and commitment to the RFU both in his position as patron and vice-patron. The RFU has greatly valued his contribution to promoting and supporting the game.” The Rugby Football Union (RFU) confirmed that Harry would be stepping down from his role as a patron. 

“The Rugby Football League thanks the Duke of Sussex for his time, care, and

 commitment in supporting Rugby League at all levels in recent years, from the children’s game to the Challenge Cup, the England teams, and RLWC2021.” The Rugby Football League tweeted of which Harry was a patron. 

“They have enabled us to make fast progress and have helped us to take the organization to readiness for its next phase. We are glad that they remain in our circle of supporters.” Said in a statement the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, which supports young people around the world, thanked the couple.

“The duchess championed our work with communities and young people across the UK, and our mission to make theatre accessible to all.” The National Theatre, said it was very grateful for the support Meghan had offered however, the process of appointing a new patron was ongoing, it said.
