Meghan Markle news: Duchess of Sussex has ‘no intention’ of giving up royal patronages | Royal | News (Reports)


Meghan Markle, 39, stepped down as a senior member of the Royal Family with Prince Harry, 36, in March before moving to California. In doing so the Duke of Sussex was forced to give up his military titles but royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams has claimed the Duchess will not be giving up her patronages. They are the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), the Mayhew, the National Theatre in London, and Smart Works.

Speaking to, Mr Fitzwilliams said: “I think that as far as we know there no signs that Eugenie’s going to be taking over any of the patronages that they still have.

“It’s sometimes forgotten that Meghan has several patronages which are based here.

“Obviously at the moment, there’s no sign that she has any intention of giving them up.

“They have roles with the Commonwealth and that I’m sure will continue.”

The royal couple has also signed a deal with Netflix which could see them earn more than $250million (£190million), according to reports.

Royal commentator Marlene Koenig has claimed the public do not realise the couple “don’t get all that money”.

Ms Koenig told “People don’t realise they don’t get all that money.

“Some of that money has to pay for writers, people’s health care insurance, production.

Speaking to talkRADIO, Ms Levin said: “When I met Harry at Kensington Palace the first question he asked me was, ‘Are you watching The Crown?’

“I mumbled and said, ‘are you and the rest of the Royal Family?’ He said, ‘yes, we’re all absolutely watching everything but I’m going to insist it stops before it reaches me’.

“And he’s now actually doing what I think is so disloyal and rude and that is taking money from a company like Netflix that knows exactly that it’s going to get its pint of blood out of somebody when it offers a lot of money.

“When he knows the same company is ridiculing his father, his mother and his grandmother.”
