Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘want to focus on helping military veterans in UK and US’ after Megxit – The Sun

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle want to focus on helping military veterans in UK and US after Megxit, it was claimed today.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will today attend their final event as Royals before striking out on their own to start a new, "financially independent" life.

And while quitting as royals, the couple made it clear they want to "pursue their own private charitable interests" into the future.

No details have yet been given around the couple's future charity work, however a source told The Mirror the couple want to "collectively make a change in the armed forces arena".

The source added: "Harry has vowed he will never walk away from his ­military friends and comrades.

"Giving up his military roles has been the hardest thing for him, and the Queen, Charles and William say how much that connection means to him, which is why there will always be a way back for him."

Many of Harry's final engagements as a royal have seen him support the military, first attending the Endeavour Fund awards before attending a Royal Marines concert.

But under the Megxit deal, Prince Harry will no longer use HRH or his honorary military titles. He will however still be able to wear his medals.

The 35-year-old, who undertook two tours of Afghanistan, was said to have been devastated by the loss.

He will still keep up his work with the Invictus games, a sporting event for injured military personnel he launched in 2014.

In a statement released last month, the Sussexes agreed Harry and Meghan would not perform any official duties in relation to the military after the Megxit date of March 31.

They said: "While per the agreement, The Duke will not perform any official duties associated with these roles, given his dedication to the military community and ten years of service he will of course continue his unwavering support to the military community in a non-official capacity."

On Saturday, he wore his uniform as Captain General of the Royal Marines as he attended a concert at Royal Albert Hall.

But the Queen has reportedly assured her grandson he would always be welcome back into the fold in a heart-to-heart chat last weekend.

Today, Meghan and Harry will attend the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in their first public appearance with the Queen, Kate Middleton and Prince William.

It comes after a tumultuous few weeks that saw Meghan and Prince Harry move to Canada after their dramatic announcement they would become "financially independent" in January.

And insiders said Prince Harry was feeling "emotional" as he approached his final round of royal engagements.

Part of the Megxit deal means Harry and Meghan won't be using the term Royal, meaning they will have to rename their SussexRoyal website and Instagram account.

They also agreed to pay back the £2.4 of taxpayer money spent on refurbishing Frogmore Cottage.
