London CNN  — 

After two weeks of turmoil within Britain’s royal family, the Queen has struck an unprecedented deal with Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

Coming after a series of crunch talks over the pair’s bombshell announcement that they wanted to scale back their royal duties, the agreement ensures that they will not represent the Queen as working members of the royal family – and will drop their “HRH” titles.

It’s a move the Queen hadn’t been expected to make, and it’s entirely unprecedented for a monarch to ask her own grandchild to drop their title – but given the prospect of the Sussexes signing commercial deals in the future, the need to separate their ventures from the royal household was pressing.
