It’s Official: Queen Strips Harry And Meghan Of Their Royal Roles
The Queen stripped Harry and Meghan of their royal roles since they've decided not to return to life as working members of the Royal Family.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not be returning as working members of the Royal Family. In addition, Queen Elizabeth stripped her grandson of the honorary titles he was petitioning to be returned to him.
Last year, Harry and Meghan stepped back as working members of the Royal Family when they began a new life in the U.S. And, a 12-month review on their future was launched.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to have their cake and eat it, too. They didn’t want the responsibilities of being Royals but they wanted the perks.
The couple want the glam of Hollywood along with many of the benefits Buckingham Palace provides while cashing in on the Royal Family.
Queen Elizabeth clapped back at them in a decisive manner that’s sure to leave a mark on their egos.

Harry is proud of his years in the military and wanted to retain the honors of having military titles.
The Queen thought otherwise and took them away from the ginger headed prince permanently.
All of the Royal patronage positions are being returned to the Queen for redistribution to working members of the Royal Family.
This includes Meghan Markle’s role as Patron of the National Theatre.
This role was viewed as a prestigious honor as the Queen was the long standing patron before bestowing it upon the Hollywood actress turned Royal.
Now, Markle is being stripped of the honor.
Buckingham Palace Sends Out Statement
Buckingham Palace’s official statement on the matter reads:
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family.
Following conversations with The Duke, 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. The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family.
While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family.
Notes to editors:
Following The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to step away last year as working members of The Royal Family, a 12-month review was agreed.
A decision has now been made after conversations between The Duke of Sussex and Members of The Royal Family.
The military, Commonwealth and Charitable associations which will revert to The Queen are:
The Royal Marines, RAF Honington, Royal Navy Small Ships and Diving.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, The Rugby Football Union, The Rugby Football League, The Royal National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities.”
Harry And Meghan Respond To The Queen
This is reportedly a reaction to Harry and Meghan’s upcoming tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are willing to spill their tea on Harry’s family.
Actions have consequences and this one is pretty steep.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a statement of their own claiming they don’t need their royal roles to continue their work.
“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.
“We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan has been highly critical of Megxit.
He threw cold water on the couple’s statement by saying they can accomplish more with their titles, which he does not believe they deserve.
He wants the pair stripped of their titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex
Yes, but one can lead a far more lucrative life of service if one has a royal title.. https://t.co/b9Vl046PfM
