兩人會最後出席一系列王室活動,此後正式退出王室。哈里和梅根的王室角色將於三月底結束。哈里將保留在英國部隊中獲得的軍銜,但他的榮譽軍職,如皇家海軍陸戰隊總司令,將被停用。

The couple’s office in Buckingham Palace will close. Instead, their charitable foundation will represent them in the UK. The couple are planning to create a new non-profit organisation – details of which will be shared later in the year.

哈里和梅根夫婦二人在白金漢宮的辦公室將關閉。但是,他們的慈善基金會則會變成兩人在英國的新形象。他們正在計畫創建一個新的非營利組織,具體細節將於今年晚些時候公佈。

At the same time, we’ll find out whether the couple will be able to use the word 『royal’ in any way on their social media feeds or on their website, for example. Reports suggest that the palace has said 『no’. One source said that those reports are going in the right direction.

與此同時,我們還將得知他們夫婦兩人能否在其社交媒體賬號上以及他們的網站上使用 「王室(royal)」 這個詞。一些報導稱,白金漢宮拒絕了此提議。一位消息人士說,這些報導的預測大致是正確的。
