OREANDA-NEWS The Buckingham Palace press office informed that Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are not going to return to their duties as senior members of the British royal family. It is reported by BBC News.

In addition, Queen Elizabeth II deprived Harry and Meghan of the patron status of some institutions and charitable organizations that they had during their royal life in Britain. Also, Prince Harry will have to give away the remaining honorary military titles, which he is deeply proud of, in particular, the title of Captain General of the Royal Marines of Great Britain among others.

The official statement from Buckingham Palace reads: "While we are all depressed by their decision, the Duke and Duchess will remain sincerely loved members of our family."

A spokeswoman for Harry and Meghan said they are still loyal towards the whole royal family and their duty, and despite the change in their official status and their way of life, they are ready to continue to support the organizations they patronized.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gave away their duties as members of the British royal family on April 1, 2020. They decided to move to the United States to work and do business then, and for that purpose they had to give up their Royal Highness appeal, government funding, and Sussex Royal brand they possessed before. Queen Elizabeth II was going to review Prince Harry and Meghan's status at the beginning of 2021.
