Queen Elizabeth II regrets the decision made by her grandson Harry and his wife Meghan Markle to step aside from the duties of the Royal Family and to become financially independent, but says she fully supports him.
After a meeting this Monday with Prince Charles and his two sons Harry and William, the Queen has published a note announcing a “constructive” working session and seeking to end any controversy.
“Today my family had a very constructive discussion about the future of my grandson and his family,” begins by writing Isabel II.
“My family and I fully support Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life for their young family. Although we would prefer them to be full-time servants of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their desire to have a more independent life as a family while remaining a valuable part of my family, ”the statement said.
As reported, the couple Harry and Meghan will now split their time between Canada and the United Kingdom, in what Isabel II describes as a transitional period. However, the Queen does not want to waste time finding a suitable solution that will allow the couple to disengage from their royal duties to become financially independent, as they claim.
“These are complex issues that my family has to address, and there is a lot of work to know, but I asked for final decisions to be made over the next few days,” concludes Isabel II in her statement.
