Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have 'no role to play' now Charles is King

In recent weeks, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made several public appearances. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew to the UK for a string of charity events earlier this month, but have stayed for longer following the sad death of Harry’s beloved grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Harry and Meghan poignantly joined Prince William and Kate Middleton, the new Prince and Princess of Wales, for a walkabout in Windsor over the weekend.

The royal four met members of the public who had crowded outside to pay their respects, and they viewed the many flower tributes left to the monarch at her Berkshire home.

While many were delighted to see the two royal couples united again since Harry and Meghan have spent most of the last two years in the US, it seems unlikely the Sussexes will take on public royal roles during the reign of King Charles III.

Royal historian Marlene Koenig said: “William is now the Prince of Wales, Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge, and in Scotland, the Duke of Rothesay.

“He succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall and takes on the responsibilities for the Duchy of Cornwall which I have undertaken for more than five decades.

“Today, I am proud to create him Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, the country whose title I have been so greatly privileged to bear during so much of my life and duty.

“With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will, I know, continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the centre ground where vital help can be given.”

He added: “I want also to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas.”

While Harry and Meghan are not working royals anymore, they continue to support charitable causes through their initiative Archewell.

Meghan has recently launched a successful podcast on Spotify, Archetypes, which has featured famous guests like tennis ace Serena Williams, singer Mariah Carey and actress Mindy Kaling.

Harry also continues to support the Invictus Games, a sporting event for military personnel and veterans.

Only last week Harry and Meghan attended an Invictus Games event in Dusseldorf to mark one year until the fixture returns.

But one area that remains uncertain for the Sussexes is their children Archie and Lilibet’s royal titles.

Archie and Lilibet did not hold royal titles under the Queen’s reign, but as the grandchildren of the monarch, they are now eligible for Prince and Princess titles.

Whether Archie or Lilibet will use these titles going forward has not been confirmed while the nation mourns the late Queen.
