PRINCE HARRY, MEGHAN MARKLE Give Up Royal Titles
Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle will no longer use their royal titles, following the announcement that the couple wanted to "step back as senior members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent."
In a statement, Queen Elizabeth said: "I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life. I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family."
The reigning UK monarch added that she hopes the agreement would allow the family "to start building a happy and peaceful new life".
A separate statement from the Buckingham Palace on the official royal family website confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family".
The second son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana wed the Suits actress in May 2018. The couple welcomed their first child Archie a year later.
