Latest – February 19, 2021
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 couple will also no longer formally represent The Queen.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex intend to repay £2.4m of taxpayer money for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage. It will remain their UK family home, the statement added.
The new arrangement comes into effect in spring this year, the palace said.
The statement comes after senior royals held talks on Monday about the future role for the couple, who this month announced they wanted to “step back” as senior royals.
