Queen Elizabeth, senior royal family members, and other concern parties are reportedly having a crisis talk over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to step down from their royal duties. Allegedly, Her Majesty is ready to offer a generous deal to her grandson and his wife in exchange for their plan to leave the monarchy.
According to Express, the Queen will allow the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to resign from their posts if they continue to receive royal funding. She, too, allegedly assured the sixth in line to the throne that they will have a place in the future “slimmed-down monarchy.”
By the looks of it, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to defy Queen Elizabeth by announcing their plan without her consent paid off. Sources said that Her Royal Highness and her heir to the throne, Prince Charles, are not yet ready to let go of the two despite the hurt they caused them.
Senior aides from Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Kensington Palace all arrived for a series of meetings and conference calls to make an agreement suitable for everyone. Ministers and officials from both the United Kingdom and Canadian governments, which believed to spend millions to support Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, were also consulted.
Queen Elizabeth herself even reportedly made a call on Friday with Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry to talk about the matter. The Sussexes, on the other hand, wanted to find a solution to get through all these.
“They, like everyone, are hopeful this can all be worked out sooner rather than later,” the source said. “It is in everyone’s interest for this to be figured out, and figured out quickly – but not at the expense of the outcome.”
EuroNews noted that the crisis talks are to carve out new roles for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they surprised the world with their announcement to step back as senior members of the royal family. The discussions started after they released their “personal message,” in which they revealed their plans to step down from their royal duties, be financially independent, and divide their time between the United Kingdom and North America.
The fans, critics, and even the media were all divided over the issue. Some praised the two for their brave decision while others criticized their plans. However, people are most interested to know if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will continue to have their HRH titles and receive money from his father’s Duchy of Cornwall estate.
