The Queen has stripped Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of all royal associations and military ¬titles after the couple confirmed they would not return as working members of the royal family. Harry, 34, will also lose his ¬patronages of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and the Rugby Football Union, while 39-year-old Meghan will no longer be associated with the Royal National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities. Issues between the Sussexes and the royal family were exacerbated in recent days following reports that Meghan was to conduct a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey next month, with Harry being introduced for a fireside chat towards the end of the program. Meghan and Harry have continued to lose support from the British people after claiming they required privacy, but then organizing bespoke picture opportunities and signing multi-million-dollar contracts with media giants including Netflix. However in the US, they remain hugely popular.
