Remove queen excluder?

This is my first year with 1 hive. I have 1 deep 10 frame brood box, followed by a queen excluder, followed by another deep 10 honey box, followed by a medium 10 honey box.

I didn't realize that I should have 2 brood boxes and added the queen excluder during the summer and the second box which is now full of honey. I don't plan on taking any honey this year. I just added the medium box on top of this as well because I'm in coastal California (SF Bay Area) and I expect good weather and nectar flow to continue until end of October. Should I remove the queen excluder at this time and put it in between the 2nd deep (now full of honey) and the top medium?
