Queen Elizabeth has granted permission for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to split their time between Canada and the United Kingdom during the ‘transitional period’. Recall that the Prince and Harry and his wife Meghan Markle has announced their decision to step down as senior members of the Royal Family.
The couple alleged that they wanted to be financially independent and have more time to serve the Queen well while they split their time between the UK and Canada.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the Queen was at first infuriated with the decision of her grandson to step down as a senior member of the Royal Family.
However, it seems thing has taken a different turn following the outcome of the summit held at Sandringham. The Queen explained that the Royals would have loved to have Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue as a senior member of the Royal Family. However, their decision to step down must be respected.
This was revealed through a statement released by the Queen which reads;
Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson 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.
Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.
It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.
These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.
