Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have resigned from all duties related to the UK’s royal family.
A statement by Buckingham Palace on Friday revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would no longer serve 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 statement read.
It also disclosed that the couple’s honorary military appointments and royal patronages would go back to Queen Elizabeth II for redistribution.
