Indications have shown that there is a breakthrough at Sandringham summit as the Queen of England allows Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to live in Canada and the UK during the ‘transitional period’.
The Queen who expressed her regret at losing them as ‘full-time working royals’ has finally thrashed out a Sussex solution.
The Queen in a statement after the meeting said that the royals had held ‘very constructive discussions’ and it has been agreed that Harry and Meghan will split their time between the UK and Canada.
Although she would have preferred if the Sussexes remained ‘full-time working royals’, the Queen added that there would be a ‘transitional period’ where Harry and Meghan split their time between the UK and Canada.
The Queen’s statement reads below.
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.
Harry had wanted his 93-year-old grandmother, father and brother to let him and his wife keep their royal titles while living abroad and grabbing ‘financial independence’. They intend earning their own money using the Sussex brand, which experts say could be worth £400million.
