Find Out What The Queen Really Thinks Of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Surprising Departure From The Royal Life
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to step down from their post as senior members of the royal family, or ‘Megxit’ as some publications have dubbed it, has definitely left the world with mouths agape and filled with questions.
Perhaps the most burning of these is just what might the monarchy’s head, Queen Elizabeth, thought of her grandson’s departure from his life and duties. Days after the announcement, Her Majesty herself has issued a rare statement speaking on the pressing matter. This is what she has to say.
Family Summit Conclusions
According to the Queen, she is pleased that they have found a supportive yet constructive way forward for Prince Harry and his family. And although he will be leaving together with his wife Meghan Markle and their infant son Archie, they will remain as ‘much loved’ members of the royal family.
She also expressed her understanding of the many difficulties that the couple, who were wed in 2018, have faced together over the course of their union. And in the end, she is supportive of their wanting of more independent life. The Queen also notably thanked Prince Harry and Markle for all the work they’ve done over the past two years.
The content of this statement is reportedly the conclusions of a family summit that was conducted days prior at the Sandringham estate. This was attended by Queen Elizabeth, her son and heir apparent, Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry.
In turn, the Sussexes are grateful for the Queen and the rest of the royal family’s ongoing support. They also said that they understand the stipulations of their new arrangement, which includes stepping back from their duties as well as official military appointments.
What more, the couple’s camp clarified that they will no longer receive public funds as they did before. In fact, they’ve actually expressed the desire to repay the expenditure they incurred for the renovations done in their home, Frogmore Cottage.
Aside from funding, Prince Harry and Markle will no longer be using the HRH titles they previously held as confirmed by a source from the palace. But they will still be formally called Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
Now that they are free from their royal duties, Prince Harry and Markle can now focus on their own causes. They would still keep their posts as President and Vice President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, though, said another royal source.
Meanwhile, the Duke of Sussex will leave behind his three military patronages. The changes discussed during the recent family summit will take effect in the coming spring. Buckingham Palace says that their arrangement will be due for a review after a year.
