Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s divorce from the Royal Family of the United Kingdom has been formalised.
The couple will not be returning to the Royal Family as working members, according to Buckingham Palace. “Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written to emphasise that stepping away from The Royal Family’s activities will not allow her to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service,” the statement continues.
“As a result, Her Majesty will receive The Duke and Duchess’ honorary military positions and Royal patronages before they are split among working members of The Royal Family.” The Duke and Duchess are still adored members of the family, despite everyone’s disappointment at their decision.”
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the United Kingdom and around the world, as evidenced by their work over the past year, and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role,” a spokesperson for the couple said in a statement. We all have the option of living lives of service. “Everyone benefits from service.”
While the couple’s choice is unsurprising considering their recent move to the United States and high-profile media occupations, official confirmation was expected after the 12-month review period agreed upon with the Queen following the couple’s surprise announcement last winter.
“We desire to continue to represent and serve Her Majesty The Queen in a more limited manner, while not drawing on the Sovereign Grant,” the pair declared on their now-defunct Sussex Royal website. Obviously, that was not conceivable – at least not in an official capacity. Conversations between Prince Harry and members of the Royal Family are understood to have led to the statement from Buckingham Palace on Friday.
The Queen will take over the couple’s military, Commonwealth, and charity ties in the future. The National Theatre, the Royal Marines, the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, to name a few, were all patrons of Markle.
In a “wide-ranging” interview to appear on CBS next month, the two will speak with Oprah Winfrey. Archewell.com is their new website. The interview was announced just one day after Markle and Prince Harry revealed they were expecting their second child.
The two announced a multi-year deal with Netflix in September to produce documentaries, feature films, scripted television shows, and children’s programming. Through their Archwell Audio production company, they’ve also recently launched a Spotify podcast with the goal of “community building through shared experience, tales, and beliefs.”
