Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ‘to focus on helping war veterans’ after Megxit

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will set up a new charity to help military veterans in the UK and US after the pair ditch their royal duties, according to reports.

The couple plan to put homelessness and medical care for veterans at the heart of their post-royal plans once they step down from their frontline roles.

Palace insiders claim Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, want to assist and help the military, an organisation close to the Duke’s heart.

The well-placed royal source said the move would be welcomed by the Queen as the couple strike out a new path for themselves.

They told The Mirror: “Harry has vowed he will never walk away from his military friends and comrades.

“Giving up his military role has been the hardest thing for him, and the Queen, Charles and William say how much that connection means to him, which is why there will always be a way back for him.”

Prince Harry, who served two tours in Afghanistan, set up the Invictus Games for injured veterans and has said working with wounded military personnel is very close to his heart.

The source continued: “Meghan also wants Harry to keep up his associations with the armed forces as he was devastated by having to step back from the on part of royal life he liked.

“A path has been set for him to return to take on those duties again if he wants it.”

It emerged as the Sussex would not attend the Queen’s procession through Westminster Abbey as part of the Commonwealth Service.

The couple will, instead, visit the iconic London landmark later this afternoon.
