    Harry and Megan resign

    This is pretty radical. They hope to be of less interest to the paparazzi from now on. Harry has been popular, so Brits will feel let down.


    Prince Harry and Meghan will no longer use their HRH titles and will not receive public funds for royal duties, Buckingham Palace has said.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also said they intend to repay £2.4m of taxpayer money for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home.

    The couple will also no longer formally represent The Queen.

    The new arrangement will come into effect in spring this year.

    It comes after the couple earlier this month said they wanted to step back as senior royals.

    A statement from the Queen said following "many months of conversations" she was "pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family".

    "Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family," the statement continued.

    "I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life.

    "I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family.

    "It is my whole family's hope that today's agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life."

    This is old news, going on for at least a week.

    What kills me is that they are going to spend part of each year in Canada, and our moron PM has piped up saying, "We'll foot the bill for their security!".

    Nobody asked me if I wanted to pay for their security. If they want to be independent then let them be independent and don't make me pay for anything for them!

    Fixed.
    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nation’s political system.

    They want out of the royal family while simultaneously seeking to trademark "Sussex Royal."

    What a couple of hypocrites.
