Breaking News: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Stripped of Patronages and Honorary Appointments

It has been announced today that The Duke and Duchess will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family.  As part of the review planned a year ago when they first stepped away from royal duties, it has been decided that they will no longer have any of their royal patronages or honorary military roles.
Buckingham Palace statement on The Duke and Duchess of Sussex:
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family.  
Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service. The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family.
 
While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family.
