Believe it or not, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's last official day as senior members of the royal family is mere days away.
As you may remember, a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced in mid February that the couple will formally and officially step down from duties on March 31, aka this coming Tuesday. As of April 1, the 35-year-old prince and 38-year-old duchess will close their office at Buckingham Palace and will be solely supported by their charity foundation team.
The spokesperson further explained the new shift, saying, “The Duke and Duchess will be spending their time in both the United Kingdom and North America. In addition to continuing to work closely with their existing patronages as they build a plan for engagements in the U.K. and the Commonwealth throughout the year, The Duke and Duchess have also been undertaking meetings as part of their ongoing work to establish a new non-profit organization. The details of this new organization will be shared later in the year.”
They went on to specify that the “themes of their cause-related work will remain unchanged, which includes the Commonwealth, community, youth empowerment and mental health, collectively.”
