Piers Morgan shared a tweet which announced the news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not be returning as working royals. He then asked if they would be giving up their titles.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were given the titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex when they got married on May 19, 2018.
The original Twitter post today read: “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirm to the Queen they will NOT be returning as working royals.
“Presumably they will be giving up their Duke and Duchess royal titles too?” Piers wrote online in view of his 7.7 million followers.
A statement from Buckingham Palace announced the news.
“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,” it continued.
Harry and Meghan stepped away from royal life last year and a 12-month review was agreed.
The military, Commonwealth and Charitable associations which will revert to the Queen are: The Royal Marines, RAF Honington, Royal Navy Small Ships and Diving.
As well as the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, The Rugby Football Union, The Rugby Football League, The Royal National Theatre and The Association of Commonwealth Universities.
