On january 10th the prince harry and his wife announced that they planned to stop being \"high-ranking\" royals, almost without precedent, and there was much speculation about how the two would actually step down and continue to support the queen. Separately, less than a day after the statement was issued, Madame Tussauds London decided to remove their wax figure from the royal exhibition.
Although there is no precedent for no longer being a \"senior\" member of the royal family, there has long been a precedent for members of the british royal family to withdraw from the royal family, such as harry's mother, princess diana, who lost her royal title after her divorce from charles in 1996, and quit as patrons of more than 50 charities.
The hong kong paper reports that there is no clear definition of \"senior\" members of the royal family, which generally refers to the immediate children of the monarch and the immediate children of the crown prince, who need to represent the queen in public or on foreign visits and are paid by the queen.
In their statement, Mr and Mrs Harry said they would continue to fulfil their obligations to the Queen, the Commonwealth and sponsored charities in the future, meaning they would still be willing to share their duties for the Queen, but the analysts believed the number would be substantially reduced and the source of expenditure could vary.
The royal commentator, mr. and mr. mainzel, said that the titles of the harrys and their revenues might change in the future, but the statement said they would not leave the royal family or leave their posts and would retain the titles of the duchess of sussex if they moved overseas.
Less than a day after Prince Harry and Meghan released their statement on Sunday, London's Madame Tussauds decided to remove their wax figure from the royal exhibition, according to the Chinese website.
Davis, general manager of Madame Tussauds London, said in a statement:\" The news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will step down from their royal duties has shocked us as much as the rest of the world. From today on, images of Meghan and Prince Harry will no longer appear in our royal exhibition. That means Prince Harry and Princess Meghan will no longer stand next to the wax figures of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Prince Harry's waxwork was first launched in 2014 to mark his 30th birthday, while Meghan's waxwork was added to the collection in the year of the royal wedding in 2018.
For now, Madame Tussauds in New York has also decided to move the couple to another area of the pavilion. \"In honour of this iconic occasion, we will move these two popular figures to another area of Madame Tussauds in New York,\" Williams, Madame Tussauds in New York, said in a statement. We're looking forward to spending more time with the couple in North America and we'll keep an eye on their next chapter.'
9(UPI)-- The Queen asked Prince Harry not to issue a statement announcing he and his wife, Princess Meghan, would step down from the royal duties on August 8, but Prince Harry still took the initiative to make the bombshell statement on his social media.
