Here's a touch of analysis from the BBC ...tomahawk6 said:They have lost their title HRH but retaitain their Dukedom. Anyone have further insight ?
... They will always be, the Queen writes, 'much loved members of my family'.
But that's about it. No royal title, no royal duties, no military appointments, no tours, most of their time spent in Canada, no public money.
It is harder to think of a much cleaner break than this. Harry and Meghan are still members of the Royal Family, but they are effectively no longer royal.
The early talk was of a much more mixed life - one where perhaps Harry and Meghan continued with some royal duties, dividing their time equally between the UK and Canada.
But the contradictions and conflicts of interest were too many.
There are still lots of details to thrash out.
And the whole thing will be reviewed after a year.
But a new life awaits Harry and Meghan - celebrities, certainly, but a different kind of royalty ...
