Harry and Meghan not returning as working members of Royal Family


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not return as working members of the Royal Family, Buckingham Palace has said.

The Queen confirmed the couple would not “continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service”.

A statement from the palace added Prince Harry and Meghan “remain much loved members of the family”.

The couple said “service is universal” and offered to continue supporting the organisations they have represented.

The duke and duchess said last January they would step back as “senior” royals and work to become financially independent.

They formally stepped down in March, with a plan to review the arrangements after 12 months.

The confirmation means Prince Harry and Meghan, who now live in California, will return their honorary military appointments and Royal patronages.

Their departure follows conversations between Harry and members of the Royal Family.

A statement from Buckingham Palace said: “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.

“While all are saddened by their decision, the Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family.”

A spokesman for Harry and Meghan said: “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 organisations they have represented regardless of official role.”

They added: “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

    • Have you forgotten that ELIZABETH II is the Antigua HEAD OF STATE, and that Harry is her grandson Of course this has something to do with Antigua.

      • Correct! @Chupz must be very young so he is not one of us who stood at the side of the road in the late 1970s wearing our school uniform and waving a little flag when Queen Elizabeth visited Antigua and was on her way to Nelson’s Dock Yard. Also, my be he never look at the dollar paper.

        But having said that, what is also true is @Paul T’s comment below.

        • What the f#### this have do wid Antigua. What the f### have they done for Antigua in our current situation? They are two f###ing spoil brats who don’t know what one hard days work for minimun wage be. Chupz more important things are there to report on.

  1. The day they worked a 9 to 5.The world as we have known it ends. Antigua News Room : Why are they relevant? Why are you giving them so much publicity? Are you being paid? Not accusing, just asking.

    • ELIZABETH II is the Antigua HEAD OF STATE, and Harry is her grandson. You seem to be quite uninformed my friend.

      • @Maynard: I am aware of all that.I personally do not give a damn.She was married before she marry Harry.Let them go and chop wood and bun coal coal for a living.They need to sweat from their brows to eat bread.They,THE FAMILY,have lived off of the taxpayers of the UK for far too long.So do not mentioned uninformed to me.I am not your damn friend.I have enough of those,Do not need anymore.Keep your sarcasm to your damn self.

  2. Royal or not, they are all a bunch of hypocrites. The massive wealth which they all enjoy is as a result of the slave trade that included the rape and murder of black people.

  3. They give you that news because Dem say she black. Foolish Harry messed up the royal family by bringing in an American. Choops.

      • I doubt that she bleach. Remember that he Father is not black. Therefore, her black gene does not go too deep. Secondly, this woman sty inside 9.99% of the time from Paparazzi.

        • She never told anyone that she was part black when she was growing up and in collage. She’s only pretending to be a part of the black population now because of this foolish BLM movement.

          How can BLM when blacks are killing and robbing other black people?

          • What’s with all the hatred for Black people. BLM is NOT “foolish”, but you seem to be. Besides that, you are a “mullato” yourself. Chuptz.

  4. She would never be with a black dude. Also she never told her friends that she was part black. She’s a POS American

  5. I guess you don’t understand, but in the US IF YOU HAVE 1% (ONE PERCENT) Black DNA, you Black. What percentage are you? You must be mulatto????
