I re-read the statement from the queen. HM has not kicked the Sussexes out which I imagine is disappointing to some. They are still part of the family. HM recognized the two years of scrutiny impacting them (I think she threw shade at the British media). Acknowledging Meghan's contributions was a good touch; but it seems if this was done a year ago we would not be here. Well what's done is done. I wish the Sussexes strength and health and a good life.

Clarification on the HRH style: both Harry and Meghan will RETAIN them but they will no longer USE them. They will be known as

• Harry, The Duke of Sussex
• Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex

HRH bit Iíve understood from the get go. Itís the Sussex bit I donít understand, why is the title coming after their name? Itís not how it works for non royal dukedoms.

Iím positive the BRF will be fine, for those (not here) thinking this will damage them. I think theyíve handled this well...I DO think HM, Charles and William will need to discuss the future in terms of replacements for H and M

Excellent decision by Her Majesty.

Her Majesty certainly has a wry sense of humour to agree to the line about being proud of Meghan so quickly becoming one of the family...

The York sisters are the only ones around who can possibly be called upon to pick up some slack. Someone has to be around to open hospitals in Sheffield and village fetes in Shropshire.

The LPs of 1917 say that he is entitled to use the style of Royal Highness and the titular dignity of Prince prefixed to his name. Is he relinquishing the use of the title of Prince also ?

It is all very confusing.

I believe they have them legally- as they are entitled to them as grandchildren of the monarch- they just donít use them. Sort of like Harry and Meghan now, but without the drama, pain and chaos.

I can't see Edward and Sophie wanting Louise and James to become senior royals, but time will tell...

But the recent change of their website shows already they are using it and not willing to give it up.
I think they should not use it for monetary things but can call themselves HRHs likentheymdo.

Well this gave some needed clarity. I do think it was wrong to strip Harry of his military appointments. I am pleased they still retain their titles even if they are not using them. Also was a smart PR move to pay back costs for FC.

And I am sad they will no longer be doing any royal duties. I am a bit confused as to how being VP and Pres of QCT isn't representing her majesty though?

I also feel like all of this could change when Charles ascends. I feel they are leaving the door open for them to return to being working royals once Charles is king. Maybe it won't be needed or wanted but I think the door was left open intentionally.

I am excited for the work Harry and Meghan will continue to do though. I think it will be a very exciting time for them this year.

I am nit judging them by their parents but think this would be a bad choice, too.

This new arrangement for the Sussexes will start in the spring when they launch their new foundation. Until then they WILL do more royal engagements and Meghan will return to ����...BUT in a yearís time the whole thing will be reviewed by Queen, Charles and William



So they basically giving them a year to test run this and then what... if they good they can keep going but if they want back in then they can return? Is this why they not being stripped of their titles. For the "just in case."

Also Meghan and Harry will continue doing engagements until the spring.
I am confused...where in the official announcement does it say they are being given a year to test out?

In the short term, for the next year while this agreement with the Sussexes is under trial, I think we can expect to see a bit more official engagements from the York sisters. If the Sussexes don't return to the fold in 2021 then I suspect that Bea and Eugenie will definitely become working royals, with their spouses doing a few here and there, similar to the level of participation we see from Tim Lawrence. The Wessex kids simply are too young still to take anything on for another 10-15 years. The only option that exists to cover the window we have until the Cambridges are old enough are the Yorks.

Slap it up then I say! They wanted to have their cake and eat it too and have been shown that they canít just stamp their foot and have it.

I wonder will they appear at Trooping the Colour?

It depends whether you believe LPs are needed to remove the titles, or The Queens will is enough. According to some, when The Queen announced they wouldn't have their titles, that was it, they were gone.

Max Foster from CNN replying to comments on this topic says

"As they have opted out as working members of the royal family and will no longer be representing The Queen"

"Their choice. They no longer have formal roles so itís the new informal them"

I think HM and Charles will find some way to show themselves as a happy united family at other occasions soon to come, if H&M agree.
Trooping the Colour, we will see if the people and media calm down about the whole thing, but to me this seems too much at the moment. And I am not sure, as Harry is expected to stop all military events, what will he do? Charles, Ann and William are in uniform that day,...

Again, nothing changes until Spring 2020. The titles and use of their HRHs don't take effect until Spring 2020.

Nothing to do with not willing to give it up....
