Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will no longer remain as active members of the British Royal Family and will have their title Royal Highness removed. This was stated in a statement issued by Buckingham Palace.
The decision follows the couple’s announcement earlier this month that they will step back from royal duties, spend more time in Northern America and become financially independent from the Royal Family.
Buckingham Palace stated that Prince Harry and Meghan will no longer receive public funds for royal duties and that the couple will repay funds it spent on work done in the Windsor residence in the west of London. The changes will enter into force in Spring.
Following the announcement the wax figures of Prince Harry and Meghan were removed from Madame Tussauds museum.
