“Since this time, Andrew steered clear of Family events and memorably avoided attending the traditional Christmas church service at Sandringham, slipping out of an earlier private service via a back exit.

“But today’s joint church trip was choreographed to showcase her willingness to move past the Epstein storm, and suggests Andrew is preparing to be gradually reintroduced into the royal mix.”

The report continues: “Under the terms of yesterday’s historic deal thrashed out at Sandringham, the pair, who will be known as Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, will cease to be working members of the Royal Family from this spring and will not perform any official duties on behalf of the Queen – effectively leaving ‘The Firm’ completely.

“The move will see Harry drop all of his official military positions and the couple will also spend the majority of their time in North America, a source told ITV.

“The shock statement was announced by the Queen – but minutes later the couple sparked confusion when they updated their own website and signed off as ‘Their Royal Highnesses’,” the report added.

“But Harry and Meghan, who sources say intend to spend ‘the majority’ of their time in North America, will pay a heavy financial and emotional cost.

“As well as returning the £2.4 million spent on a lavish refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, they will pay a commercial rent – estimated at up to £360,000 a year – to retain it as their British home.

“Prince Charles will continue to ‘offer private financial support’ and, crucially, the couple will have free rein to negotiate lucrative commercial deals that experts believe could net them hundreds of millions of pounds, although they have pledged ‘to uphold the values of Her Majesty’.”

But it was also noted that “a  number of unresolved issues remain, including whether Harry and Meghan will be required to strip the word ‘Royal’ from their SussexRoyal website, and who will pick up the multi-million pound bill for their continuing security requirements”.

“And a statement from Buckingham Palace (pictured) read: ‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives’.”

But according to the report: “It seems the taxpayer will continue to pay Prince Harry and Meghan’s £7.6million-a-year security bill, even though the couple have dropped their HRH titles.

“There has been a growing row about who will pick up the couple’s annual security bill as they split their time between the UK and Canada.

“And Buckingham Palace’s bombshell announcement this evening didn’t directly address the issue.

“Now a security expert has warned it could cost as much as £7.6million annually.

“This new model will take effect in the Spring of 2020.

“All the new arrangements that are due to come into effect in the spring will be reviewed by Buckingham Palace in 12 months.

“Their new titles mirror the styling given to Harry’s mother Diana after her divorce when she was no longer allowed to use HRH.

“She was known as Diana, Princess of Wales.

“The Sussexes will pay back £2.4million of taxpayers’ money spent on renovating the house in Berkshire.

“Despite the official statements saying they would no longer be funded by the taxpayer, it is understood Harry will still be reliant on the Bank of Dad – with Prince Charles bankrolling him from the Duchy of Cornwall.”
