Queen Elizabeth Speaks Up About Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Issue
Her Royal Majesty The Queen of United Kingdom Elizabeth II has spoken about the recent pressing issue in her household. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to leave the palace has become major news in the UK. With such a major change perhaps it was always predictable for the Queen to speak up.
Queen Elizabeth Releases a Statement About Harry and Meghan’s Decision
The Duchess and Duke of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are stepping down from the role of “senior” members of the family. With news media thoroughly covering every detail, it was high time for Queen Elizabeth to share her thoughts. A statement released on Monday told that the family had a “constructive meeting” over Prince Harry and “his family”.
“My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family. We respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.”
The Queen also mentioned Meghan Markle and Harry’s decision to stop relying on public funds for their new lives. For now, there will be a period of transition in which the Duke and Duchess will spend time in Canada and the U.K.
In the end, Queen Elizabeth said that she has asked for the final decisions in the coming days. The remaining “work to be done” will end and a decision will come out. According to The Sun, the statement shows predictions that the young royal couple is going to lose their royal titles. This is evident from the fact that the Queen was referring to the Duke and Duchess by their first name. The transitioning between Canada and the U.K will not a permanent one, as the couple will permanently shift elsewhere.
One thing that people can agree to is that Queen Elizabeth II sounds concerned. Previously, she asked for a solution in days, and not weeks.
