Queen Elizabeth II announced late Saturday that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no longer working members of the royal family.

“I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family,” the queen said in a statement, adding that”Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family.”

The couple is “required to step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments,” and they will “no longer receive public funds for Royal duties,” the palace said.

The new “model” as the palace referred to it will go into effect this spring.

In addition to losing their HRH titles, the couple will be required by the queen to repay the Sovereign Grant funds they recently spent to renovate their official residence, Frogmore Cottage, which was £2.4 million ($3.1 million).
