They “have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty.”
  • The couple will no longer use their HRH titles, though Harry will retain his HRH status.
  • Harry and Meghan wish to repay Sovereign Grant expenditure for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home. They will also pay commercial rent for their residence.
