Thomas, who has spoken out against his daughter several times since her 2018 wedding, also notes that Meghan "took on an obligation", calling the decision to step back "foolish".

The Duke and Duchess" new website sussexroyal.com has been updated following the Queen's statement, saying: "In line with the statement by Her Majesty The Queen, information on the roles and work of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be updated on this website in due course'. And as per the latest statement, it is visibly clear that Meghan and Harry are all set to live a completely different life.

Their eight-month-old son Archie is not an HRH or prince and they declined for him to use the title Earl of Dumbarton and chose for their little boy to be styled "Master" rather than "Lord".

On Saturday, Queen Elizabeth II announced the final decision from Buckingham Palace regarding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's futures.

Andrew's appearance came as a surprise to many - and it was not received well by royal fans on Twitter.

Yes, you read that right.

"Next time, anyone needs any extra voiceover work, we can make ourselves available", Harry tells Favreau. However, Harry will continue to benefit from his father's private income from the Duchy of Cornwall. But now that the mother-of-one has stepped down from her royal duties and will be losing her royal title along with husband Prince Harry, her father seems more disappointed than ever.

Meanwhile, Netflix's chief content officer has said the streaming giant would be interested in working with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Well, the couple now want to repay the money.

Their home, Frogmore Cottage, actually has 10 bedrooms, and they have agreed to pay the family back for the renovations after deciding to exit.

With this major decision, Prince Harry is expected to lose quite a few noteworthy titles. After serving in the British Military, the Duke will lose his title as Captain General of the Royal Marines. He will also no longer be a Commonwealth Youth Ambassador.

Under a new deal, they will also no longer receive public funds for their work and will repay £2.4m of taxpayers' money spent renovating Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their United Kingdom home. This decision comes just over a week after Harry and Meghan announced their plan to step back as senior members of the royal family, to become financially independent, and to split their time between North America and the United Kingdom.

In a historic move, the Queen acknowledged the harsh media microscope that has hovered over the duo: "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".
