- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have permanently resigned from their duties as Duke and Dutchess
- In a recent statement released by the Queen, she noted that the pair have decided not to resume their royal roles after taking a hiatus last year
- This means that Prince Harry will now be stripped of all his titles, including his military ones
The Queen recently revealed in a statement that Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made the decision to permanently resign from their royal duties and be relieved of all of their royal titles.
The couple, who are expecting baby number two, decided in 2019 to take a step away from the royal life. During their absence, they have reviewed their roles as a Dutchess and a Prince and decided that they no longer fit these titles and cannot fulfill the obligations that come with them.
"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," an Express UK article reads.
According to the same article, Prince Harry will now also be stripped of all his military titles - something which will undoubtedly hurt the Prince who holds his military rankings very close to his heart.
People have had this to say about the news:
"I honestly don't get the British obsession with Royals, everybody is born equal and nobody should be thought of as better just because they were lucky enough to be born into an inbred cult."
"They can have rid of their "Sussex's" titles as well because they do not represent us Sussex residents in any way, shape, or form."
"So as they are officially no longer working members of the Royal family CAN THE PRESS PLEASE IGNORE THEM!"
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Meghan Markle is a wonderwoman, a mother every lady would love to be. She was excited over the news that she would officially be a mum again but did not want to leave her first child Archie feeling left out.
The mother of one recently took part in a whimsical black-and-white pregnancy announcement and added a special touch to it. First she announced her news, close to the time of year her late mother-in-law Princess Diana had announced she was with child.
Then she wore a dress that was made for her back when she was pregnant with her baby Archie. The mother of one looks so flawlessly beautiful as she clasps her belly.
