And Harry is still the President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will give up many things when they step down as senior members of the royal family.
- However, it’s now been confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will both retain a number of patronages.
- But Harry will give up three honorary military appointments, including stepping down from his role as Captain General of the Royal Marines.
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s lives will change immeasurably when they step back from being senior royals. But the couple remains committed to the causes and organizations that they’ve support throughout their work as royals.
While Meghan and Harry will no longer use their HRH titles, and the duke will lose his honorary military posts, they will both keep their patronages.
Meghan’s first four royal patronages were announced in January 2019, and the duchess has worked diligently with the four organizations and charities since then. They are the ACU (Association of Commonwealth Universities), the Mayhew, the National Theatre in London, and Smart Works.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry has a substantial amount of patronages. It’s been confirmed to BAZAAR.com that the Duke of Sussex retains his appointments at the Invictus Games Foundation, the Sentebale Charity, Silverstone Heritage Experience, the Rugby Football Union, Dolen Cymru, Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, The London Marathon Charitable Trust, MapAction, Rhino Conservation Botswana, the Rugby Football League, The Rugby Football Union Injured Players Foundation, Rugby Football Union All Schools Programme, and Wellchild.
Harry also remains as the President of African Parks, and President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
Despite their changing roles within the royal family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to work with the organizations and charities they’ve built relationships with.
