Harry en Meghan geven gebruik titels en toelage op

De Hertog en Hertogin van Sussex geven het gebruik van hun aanspreektitel (Koninklijke Hoogheid) op vanaf het voorjaar van 2020. Verder zal het paar geen toelage meer ontvangen en gaan de Hertog en Hertogin de verbouwing van Frogmore Cottage terugbetalen.

De Hertog en Hertogin zullen H.M. Koningin Elizabeth van het Verenigd Koninkrijk van Groot-Brittannië en het Britse Koninklijk Huis niet meer vertegenwoordigen.


De Koningin heeft de volgende verklaring vrijgegeven:

Statement from HM The Queen.

Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family.

Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family.

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.

It is my whole family’s hope that today’s agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life.

Het Koninklijk Huis heeft de volgende verklaring vrijgegeven:

Statement from Buckingham Palace

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.

As agreed in this new arrangement, they understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for Royal duties.

With The Queen’s blessing, the Sussexes will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations. While they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussexes have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty.

The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their wish to repay Sovereign Grant expenditure for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home.

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

This new model will take effect in the Spring of 2020.
