Queen Elizabeth: Harry, Meghan “no longer working members of the Royal Family”
Written by KFAT on January 29, 2020
Queen Elizabeth said in a statement Saturday that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are “no longer working members of the Royal Family”.
The Queen’s announcement came as a follow-up to the pair’s recent bombshell revelation they would step back as senior members of the royal family.
“Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family,” the Queen said. “I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family.”
The new arrangements will begin in the âspring of 2020,â and they will be known as Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
Harry will still be a prince and is sixth in line to the British throne.
Frogmore Cottage will still be their family home in the UK, though they will need to repay the Sovereign Grant expenditure for refurbishment done on it.
The Queen said she and the rest of the royals wish the pair all the best and harbor no hard feelings over the situation.
“It is my whole familyâs hope that todayâs agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life.”
