“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,” the palace said.

“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.”

Harry will lose his honorary military appointments, which will be redistributed “among working members of The Royal Family.”

Other trusts and patronages that will revert to the Queen include the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, the Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football League, the Royal National Theatre, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, via People.

They will however retain their His/Her Highness titles, along with their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles, although they do not use them.

“While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family,” the Buckingham Palace announcement also said.

In their own statement, the couple said they “remain committed to their duty and service to the U.K. and around the world, and have offered their continued support to the organizations they have represented regardless of official role…we can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

The couple will be having their very first sit-down primetime interview soon.

Here's What The British Line of Succession Looks Like After Meghan Markle's Pregnancy Announcement

As the British Royal Family keeps expanding, the line of succession is also changing.

After Meghan Markle announced she and Prince Harry were expecting a second baby, and the birth of Princess Eugenie‘s baby boy, the line has shifted down a few spots for the children and grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth.

There have been some things that have stayed the same, like Prince Charles still first in line to become King of England following his 94-year-old mother in the role.

When he ascends to the throne, it’s assumed that Archie and his unborn sibling, who have no titles at the moment, might receive one. However, that is still yet to be confirmed.

Prince William Praises Grandparents Queen Elizabeth & Prince Philip For Getting COVID-19 Vaccine

Prince William has reacted to his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

Taking part in Britain’s COVID-19 vaccination roll-out to combat the coronavirus pandemic, the 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge commended his grandparents for taking part and being an example for others.

“My grandparents have had the vaccine and I’m very proud of them for doing that,” William shared in a video. “It’s really important that everyone gets their vaccine.”

Elizabeth, 94, and Philip, 99, are both considered part of the high risk category because of their advanced ages and were given the vaccine just a couple of weeks ago.

The vaccination roll out is also giving hope to the Royal Family about upcoming public events to take place, like the Trooping The Color. Many events were cancelled or scaled down in 2020.

Prince William recently revealed why he talks to his children every day about the pandemic.

Queen Elizabeth II's Trooping The Colour Will Go On in June For 2021 & Mark The Return of the Sussexes

The British Royal Family has planned out some major events for 2021.

After taking a year off from Trooping the Colour due to the pandemic, it’s reported that the Palace has planned to put on the event for this year.

Via The Sunday Times, it’s said that Queen Elizabeth II and her extended family will be back on the famed balcony to celebrate her official birthday celebrations in June.

In 2020, there was a very scaled back event that happened at Windsor Castle, where she and Prince Philip had been isolating instead.

Just a few days after the event, the family is also said to be celebrating Philip‘s 100th birthday.

The occasion could also mark Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s return to the UK, following their official exit as senior royals.

Meghan and Harry are expected to appear with the royal family on the balcony, with aides describing the event as a “family occasion” as well as an official royal event.

“The current plan is for the Queen’s birthday parade to go ahead in London as normal, with the acceptance that it may need to be adapted or scaled back depending on what guidelines are in force at the time,” one royal aide shared. “But the aspiration and the ultimate desire is to make it happen.”

If you haven’t seen, there’s been an update about the relationship with Harry and his brother, Prince William.

It has been confirmed that Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip, have been administered their first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Buckingham Palace confirmed the news and while such a “private medical matter” wouldn’t be shared with the public, the news was revealed to prevent further speculation.

CELEBS WHO RECEIVED THE VACCINE: See who else has already gotten it!

Elizabeth, 94, and Philip, 99, are both in the high risk category because of their ages. In the UK, people who are 80 and over are in the first group of people who will receive the vaccine.

A source told the BBC that the vaccines were administered on Saturday (January 9) at Windsor Castle. It is not known which vaccine they received.
