Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to adjust to their new transition of being civilians following the decisions to relinquish their roles as senior members of the royal family and move to North America.
Their transition, however, is more or a process that has required several meetings to discuss exactly how the couple will handle their last remaining duties, the use of their brand ‘Sussex Royal’, among other important stipulations associated with the move. One of those stipulations is the changing of their titles. The couple will no longer be referred to as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
After meetings with the senior members of the royal family, it was decided upon that Prince Harry and Meghan will fulfill their remaining duties through the month of March. On March 31, the ‘Megxit’ move will be considered complete, although the couple has agreed to have a 12-month review to ensure that the contractual agreement between both parties has remained beneficial and advantageous for all.
Also agreed upon was the changing of their titles. Instead of being the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan will take on the titles of Earl and Countess of Dumbarton, as well as, Baron and Baroness Kilkeel. These changes will go into effect on March 31.
Additionally, royal correspondent, Omid Scobie shared that the couple’s schedule for the next month and a half has been released, and from the look of it, it appears Prince Harry and Meghan will be in the United Kingdom a good bit.
On February 28, Prince Harry will join Jon Bon Jovi in the recording studio for his song ‘Unbroken’ which will be sung alongside the Invictus Games Choir. The proceeds from the release of the track will be donated to the We Are Invictus Foundation, according to Scobie.
March 5, Prince Harry and Meghan will attend the Endeavour Fund Awards, which are being held in London. The following day, Harry will be joining Lewis Hamilton, a Formula One racecar driver, for the opening of the Silverstone Experience museum.
On March 7, the former Suits star and Harry will attend the Mountbatten Festival of Music that is being held at London’s Royal Albert Hall, the same venue where the 2020 BAFTAs recently took place. March 8 is known as International Women’s Day and the royal family has Markle attending an unnamed event to commemorate the date.

To culminate their hectic and busy schedule for the month of March, Prince Harry and Meghan will come together with the rest of the family for Commonwealth Day, which is on March 9. The service for the event is being held at Westminister Abbey and will be the first time both parties have been together since their departure in January.
The former royal couple’s schedules have not been released for April and May, but it’s suspected that both will attend the Invictus Games that are slated to take place May 9 -16.
