On Saturday morning, it was announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had completed the final phase of their split from the royal family: losing their royal patronages.
Harry lost the titles of Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant at RAF Honington, Commodore-in-Chief of Royal Navy Small Ships and Diving, President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and patron of both the Rugby Football Union and the Rugby Football League.
While Meghan will no longer be the Vice President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust or patron of both the Royal National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

In a statement released by Buckingham Palace, the Queen confirmed the news.
"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty the Queen that they will not be returning as working members of the royal family," the statement said.
"Following conversations with the Duke, the Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of the royal family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.
"The honorary military appointments and royal patronages held by the Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of the royal family.
"While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family."
While this statement reads as very polite and civilised (as it should), it does place emphasis on "their decision".
