LONDON (Reuters) – Prince Harry and his wife Meghan made their final split with the British royal family, telling Queen Elizabeth that they will not be returning as working members of monarchy, Buckingham Palace said on Friday.

Harry and Meghan, who announced they are expecting their second child on Sunday, shocked senior royals last year by announcing plans to step back from their royal roles.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family,” the Palace said.

“While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family.”

Just days before Harry and Meghan are due to appear in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Palace said the pair’s honorary military appointments and royal patronages would be returned to the queen.

A spokesman for the pair said that they remained committed to service.

“As evidenced by their work over the past year, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the U.K. and around the world, and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role,” the spokesman said.

“We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
