How do Prince Harry and Meghan Markle differ about their future from the Queen?

The duke and duchess of Sussex made a sour-sounding statement after they had to drop their ‘Sussex Royal’ brand last night.

A statement from Buckingham Palace in which Megxit was announced in January said:

“The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles because they no longer work with the royal family.”

In the statement last night, the duke and duchess of Sussex said:

“As agreed and recorded in January, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex retain their prefix” HRH “, making them formally known as his royal highness the Duke of Sussex and her royal highness the Duchess of Sussex.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will no longer actively use their HRH titles because they will no longer work in the family from the spring of 2020.”

The Palace Declaration, issued last month, clearly states that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not use their HRH titles.

The statement by Meghan and Harry, however, states that they will retain the prefixes His and Her Royal Highness.

They further claim that the titles will not be used ‘actively’ when the couple are no longer working members of the company.

The Buckingham Palace statement in January said:

“They no longer receive public funds for royal duties. With the queen’s blessing, the Sussex people will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations.

“Although they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussex people have made it clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values ​​of Her Majesty.”

In the statement last night, the duke and duchess of Sussex said:

‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex preferred to continue to represent and support Her Majesty the Queen, albeit in a more limited capacity, without using the Sovereign Grant.

“Although there is a precedent for other members of the royal family to look for work outside the institution, an evaluation period of 12 months has been established for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”

It added later: “It was agreed that the duke and duchess could no longer formally perform” official duties “for the queen or represent the Commonwealth, but they could retain their patronages (including those classified as” royal “patrons ). ”

The January Buckingham Palace statement is clear in his claim that the Duke and Duchess will not receive a public fund for royal duties.

This is repeated in the statement by Harry and Meghan, but it begins by stating that the duke and duchess wanted to represent the queen in a “more limited capacity.”

The Sussexes state that they have been subject to a “12-month evaluation period,” although “there is a precedent for other members of the Royal family to look for work outside the institution.”

A statement from Buckingham Palace in January said:

“As agreed in this new arrangement, they understand that they must withdraw from royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for royal duties. ”

In the statement last night, the duke and duchess of Sussex said:

“Regarding the army, the Duke of Sussex retains the rank of major and the honorary duties of lieutenant commander and squadron leader. During this 12-month period, the Duke’s official military appointments will not be used because they are in the possession of the Sovereign.

“No new agreements are made to fulfill these roles before the 12-month evaluation of the new arrangements is completed.

“According to the agreement, The Duke will not perform any official duties related to these roles, given his dedication to the military community and ten years of service he will naturally continue his unwavering support to the military community in an unofficial capacity. “

The statement of the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes lists all the military ranks that the Duke of Sussex will retain – although his military appointments will not be used during the 12-month transition period.

In the statement published on January 18, the queen said:

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be very beloved members of my family.

“I acknowledge the challenges they have experienced as a result of intensive control over the past two years and support their desire for a more independent life.

In the statement last night, the duke and duchess of Sussex said:

“The royal family respects and understands the desire of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to lead a more independent life as a family by removing the alleged justification of” public interest “for media intrusion into their lives.

“They remain a valued part of Her Majesty’s family.”

The Sussexes repeat that they are still part of the family of ‘Her Majesty’.

The queen says the duke and duchess have had “intense control” over the past two years.

The royal couple chose the words “media break-in” instead, a harder and more divisive one.

A statement from Buckingham Palace in January said:

Buckingham Palace does not comment on the details of security arrangements. There are established independent processes to determine the need for government-funded security. “

In the statement last night, the duke and duchess of Sussex said:

“It has been agreed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to require effective security to protect them and their son.

“This is based on The Duke’s public profile based on his birth in The Royal Family, his military service, the Duchess’s own independent profile and the shared threat and risk level that has been specifically documented in recent years.”

The Sussexes stated that they “need effective protection” to protect them in the midst of an extensive public inquiry into who will pay the estimated £ 3 million to £ 6 million bill.

In a statement in January, the palace refused to respond to all security measures.

In a statement the palace said:

“Due to the fact that the Duke and Duchess will not make any official commitments to support the Queen, which is funded by the Sovereign Grant, an office in Buckingham Palace was no longer needed.

“It is important to note that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will regularly be in the UK.”

In the statement last night, the duke and duchess of Sussex said:

“Based on the desire of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to have a limited role as members of the royal family, it was decided in January that their institutional office should be closed, given the primary funding mechanism for this official office in Buckingham Palace is from HRH The Prince of Wales.

“The duke and duchess shared this news with their team in January as soon as they knew the decision and worked closely with their staff to ensure a smooth transition for each of them.

“For the past month and a half, the duke and duchess have been actively involved in this process, which has been understandably sad for the duke and duchess and their loyal staff, given the proximity of their Royal Highnesses and their dedicated team.”

The statement of the duke and duchess is much more emotional than the first of the palace.

Harry and Meghan stated that closing their London office was “sad” and explained that they are actively involved in the process.

They also said that they said they had told ‘their team personally’ last month.

In a statement the palace said:

“Since the duke and duchess are taking a step back as senior members of the royal family and will work towards financial independence, the use of the word” royal “in this context had to be revised.

“Discussions are still ongoing, but a change will be announced alongside the launch of their new non-profit organization.”

In the statement last night, the duke and duchess of Sussex said:

“Because The Duke and Duchess are no longer considered full-time members of The Royal Family, it was agreed that the use of the word” Royal “should be reviewed, since it relates to organizations associated with them in this new context .

“As shared on this website at the beginning of January, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to set up a” foundation “, but intend to develop a new way of bringing about change and the efforts of so many excellent foundations worldwide to fill.

“The creation of this non-profit entity will, in addition to their cause-driven work, for which they are still committed.

“Although the duke and duchess are focused on plans to set up a new non-profit organization, given the specific British government rules on the use of the word” Royal “, it has therefore been agreed that their non-profit organization will not be named will use ‘Sussex Royal’ or another version of ‘Royal’. “

It added later: “Although there is no jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word” Royal “abroad, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend” Sussex Royal “or any repetition of the word to use “Royal” on any territory (within the UK or otherwise) when the transition takes place in the spring of 2020. ”

The duke and duchess agreed that their new charitable organization would not use the word “royal”, following the palace’s declaration in January.

However, they insisted that they do not have to do this because the Queen has no “jurisdiction” over the foreign term.
