Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will have a very busy last month of being royals

As of April 1, they’ll kiss goodbye to the royal life.

It’s official: as of April 1, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will no longer be working royals. But before they’re freed from the responsibility of representing Queen and country, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will have a hectic few weeks, it seems.

At the moment, Harry and Meghan are over in Canada with baby Archie, where they’re setting up a new, more private (and financially independent) life for themselves. But the couple will be making one final trip to the UK in a royal capacity at the end of this month – and they’ve got a jam-packed schedule while they’re here. Nothing like going out with a bang, eh.

Buckingham Palace confirmed last night that the Sussexes will attend a number of official engagements across the first week of March when they’ll temporarily return to their UK base of Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

On 28 February, Prince Harry will attend the Invictus Games Choir Visit alongside Jon Bon Jovi. He will then have a few days off before he and Meghan go along to the Endeavour Fund Awards on 5 March. The ceremony, which the Duke and Duchess also attended last year, celebrates members of the Armed Forces Community who were injured or fell ill in service, and have gone on to use sport and adventurous challenge as part of their recovery.

There may well be more events in the mix throughout Harry and Meghan’s last month as working royals, but all that is plenty to be getting on within in the meantime, don’t you think? Plus, it’s likely both the Duke and Duchess will be paying visits to the UK-based organisations for which they are patrons, while they’re briefly back in the country.

Going forward from the start of April, the Sussexes will be represented officially by their soon-to-be-launched charitable foundation – the name of which is currently unclear. The not-for-profit organisation was supposed to be called Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. But the decision has now been made that Harry and Meghan can no longer use the branding ‘Sussex Royal‘, due to the inclusion of the word ‘royal’ and the complication that brings – so they’ll have to rethink it.

Regardless, it’s an exciting time for the Sussexes, and we can’t wait to see what they go on to do.
