right? Well, of course we have to kick it off with Harry Megan announcing that they are no longer working. Senior members of the Royal Family Palace confirmed the news on February 19th with a statement. Now, this was a month before their agreement was set to expire. So it came a little bit early, right? And I wonder why it came so early. They were supposed to have a full year of sort of a trial period, but I guess they just decided, you know, we're over it. Yeah, we're like, we're done. We're moving on. We're doing this interview. We have our Netflix deal. We have Spotify and we don't really need it anymore. But it was surprising. So in this statement from Buckingham Palace, they did say that they had to give up their royal patronage is which means that Harry no longer has his military ties. Um, and he's no longer working with a lot of the charities and organizations that he has worked with for a very long time. So I'm sure that that was kind of a hard pill for him to follow. Right? And Megan will no longer be a patron of the National Theatre, which apparently has been a little bit controversial. Some members of the board of the National Theatre wanted to keep her on, so it will be interesting to see what happens with that. And they do still have a few organizations that their patrons of in a private capacity. So that will continue. Yeah, I know that some of the rugby patrons, as they were a little bit surprised by this as well. Um, so and I'm sure, you know, he's worked very closely with them over the years, and I know that that's probably, uh, sad for him as well. But these will be now be distributed between other members of royal families. So, um, they will be working with different different members. So yeah. So this was a big announcement. And following the announcement, Harry and Megan released their own statement saying that services universal. Now, a lot of people were saying that this is could be a dig at the palace, and a lot of people were surprised that they released a statement of their own. Yeah, I mean, I saw two minutes after I saw the queen's statement and I was like, Wow, they didn't waste any time with that. And I just can't really think of any reading of this. That isn't a dig at the palace, right? No, totally. I mean, when she when you know, the palace basically said, You know, you have to be a working member of the royal family to do these services, and then when they're saying services universal, they're pretty much saying we could have done both, But, you know, it's just a royal rule like you can't have your cake and eat it, too, Like you can't, you know, live in California and then probably work and do your service in London. It's just not working, especially in these times, to with everything going on with Covid. So who knows how that's going to change in the future? But it was a little bit of a dig in there
