According to a TMZ report, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are devastated that they had to lose their Commonwealth Youth Ambassador Titles as part of the deal they struck with the Queen for “Megxit.”
Sources close to the royal couple revealed to the publication that Harry and Meghan were shocked that the monarch took something so important from them.
As though it wasn’t enough that they would lose their royal highness titles and repay taxpayers for their Frogmore Cottage home renovation, Harry and Meghan also have to say goodbye to one of their beloved positions.

The insider noted that the Sussexes didn’t expect things to get so intense. However, “the Queen drew a hard line in the sand, and they had to surrender the role.”
During their time as youth ambassadors of the 53 nations included in the commonwealth, Harry and Meghan had the responsibility of empowering young people in those countries to tackle the problems of their generations.
Cosmopolitan notes that Prince Harry was appointed the role before he tied the knot to Meghan in 2018. The former actress wasted no time in joining him shortly before their wedding.
The role was so important to her that she embroidered on her wedding veil the flowers of all the 53 nations of the commonwealth.
Despite the Queen’s conclusion, Screenrant reports that Harry and Meghan’s Sussex Royal website still has a section dedicated to their duties as youth ambassadors.
Although it might seem as though the odds are stacked against Harry and Meghan now that they are independent of the royal family, television producer Harvey Levin revealed to Fox News that the couple would have no problem making money for themselves.
Levin went on to disclose that he believes Harry and Meghan will become billionaires just like Barack and Michelle Obama.
The Duke of Cambridge was appointed as the new Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.
He is to represent the Queen to the Church of Scotland and carry out various official visits and ceremonial duties.
