Last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they would be “stepping back” from their duties and the Royal Family and try to gain financial independence. This was subject to review after 12 months – with the possibility that they would return.
But it’s all over now
The couple has officially relinquished ALL honorary titles and duties with no possibility of a come-back. Buckingham Palace released a statement yesterday, saying:
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.Buckingham Palace – Royal.UK
We sense a little shade there, and so did the couple, apparently cause they released their own statement saying:
We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.Spokesperson of The Duke and Duchess – Express.co.uk
A few days ago, the couple announced that they’re expecting a second child. They’ll also have an upcoming interview with Oprah to discuss the move in the coming weeks!!
