Prince Harry And Meghan Markle To Lose Their Royal Titles: Reports

Prince Harry

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are waiting for a final decision on their official royal roles, and reports suggest that they are likely to lose their official royal roles and patronage before the duo’s annual probation period comes to a close. Harry and Meghan officially stepped down at the end of March 2020 and moved to California along with their son Archie. However, to discuss the terms of their exit, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex met with other members of the royal family, including the Queen.

The Daily Telegraph stated that many royal insiders believe that the couple would be asked to give up the Queen's gifted royal patronage, where they were once permitted to conduct charitable activities with numerous UK organizations. This includes the Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football League and the London Marathon for Harry, though Meghan could lose her patronage with the National Theatre. Former Army captain Harry is also likely to lose his honorary military appointments, which have been on hold since his royal departure.

Final decisions, however, have yet to be confirmed, but events are moving faster than initially thought. Rather than wait until 31 March, when the probation period comes to an end after the couple quit full-time royal jobs. PEOPLE has revealed that the decision will be taken sooner. Although the couple no longer uses their coveted titles of His/Her Highness, they are expected to retain them—along with their titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
