Though details about an independent beginning of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have surfaced in the media, people have been kept in the dark about the possible future that is waiting for the royal couple to unravel in the facts mentioned below.
The unknown facts about The Royal heritage
A spokesperson from Buckingham Palace has revealed about a new agreement on behalf of the duo saying, “They understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for Royal duties. “With The Queen’s blessing, the Sussexes will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations. While they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussexes have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty. The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family.”
The Queen, however, hasn’t confirmed about whether the couple’s transitional phase hovering between UK and Canada will lead to a permanent relocation, where rumours have come up about their possible move to the North American country for the time being.
Last week, the Daily Mail reported that the working staff from the couple’s Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor had been shifted to the royal household followed by the Duke’s landing in Vancouver to meet his wife and son.
The duo ceases to be “working” members of the Royal family
In spite of being members of the royal family technically, Harry and Markle would stop “working” for the Windsor heritage after they sorted out a new beginning in Canada. Such a departure won’t, however, affect the line of succession. Prince Harry will continue to be the sixth in line to the throne, succeeded by his son Archie.
Royal expert, Joe Little drew a reference to Prince Andrew who resigned from his duties back in November without impacting his ascension to power. He told, “The point I would make is that the line of succession is not just for ‘working’ members of the royal family”. “It’s all a matter of birth and parentage, and nowadays would only be revised if someone in that line became Roman Catholic.”
Retaining their HRH status, the couple won’t be able to use their titles “HRH The Duke of Sussex”, but only as “Harry, Duke of Sussex”.
“Royal officials agreed to let the couple keep their HRH titles as they feared if they were stripped of them they would have to curtsey to Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie,” royal correspondent, Rebecca English posted on her Twitter handle.
Royal commentator, Richard Fitzwilliams reported: “The issue of titles is always hypersensitive. Edward VIII, when Duke of Windsor, never forgave the refusal of a title to Wallis Simpson.” “The removal of Diana’s title was highly controversial. Harry and Meghan will theoretically keep them but not be permitted to use them, it’s a compromise of sorts though this is exile for the Sussexes.”
The gradual transition of The Royal embodiments
The couple’s departure from the royal family won’t be officially finalized until the spring, implying they can still undertake royal duties for the Queen until then.
The royal editor at the Evening Standard, Robert Jobson disclosed on his Twitter handle, “There will be more engagements for Prince Harry during the ‘transition period’ between now and Spring..”.Prince Charles will offer financial support to the couple for a year in private during their transition to “regular” working citizens.
Victoria Ward from The Telegraph reported, “The substantial cash injection is expected to come from his own private investment income rather than revenue generated by the Duchy of Cornwall estate which has traditionally funded the heir to the throne and his two sons”. “However, a source close to the Prince of Wales suggested that this was not an inexhaustible source of funds.”
It is estimated that the couple holds a net worth of $30 million, inherited from Princess Diana, coupled with annual allowances from Prince Charles, and Markle’s income from enacting in the television series “Suits,” besides endorsement deals and sponsorships.
A sling chance of Markle returning to Hollywood has come to the forefront, though nothing is predictable yet since the actress took a long break from the screens. The duchess who has signed a voice-over deal with Disney won’t, however, be paid, where the donated money would go to the wildlife organization Elephants without Borders. The Duke, on the other hand, has started working with Oprah to co-produce a mental health documentary series for Apple.
