Harry and Meghan rule out a return to the British royal family
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan rule out a return to the front row of the British royal family: The couple declared their final withdrawal from royal obligations to Queen Elizabeth II, losing their last royal honorary titles and posts. This was announced on Friday by Buckingham Palace in London, which was “sad” about the decision. However, Harry and Meghan would remain “very beloved members of the family”. Both also remain Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The line of succession is also retained: Queen Elizabeth’s grandson continues to be number six in line to the throne.
A spokesman for Harry and Meghan said the couple had shown, despite their tentative departure from royalty last year, that they “remain committed to their duty and service to Britain and the world.”
The interview announced for March 7th is already heating up the mood in the British media, which is speculating on possible revelations from the orbit of the royals.
Prince Harry and former US actress Meghan Markle married in May 2018, and son Archie was born a year later. At the end of March last year, the couple officially withdrew from the front row of the British royal family and declared that they would not attend any official appointments on behalf of the Queen for the time being. This decision should now be final.
The small family now lives mainly in Meghan’s US home, California – in a villa in the coastal city of Santa Barbara. Last weekend, the couple announced that they were expecting a second child after their son Archie.
