“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
The Queen Is Not Happy With Harry And Meghan
Meghan and Harry’s Instagram announcement was countered by a press release from Buckingham Palace. The official response essentially made it know that the Queen is not happy.
Who could blame her. Meghan has caused significant disruption since joining the Royal Family. Now, she appears to be ripping Harry from his family and responsibilities.

Prince William, who once enjoyed a close relationship with his younger brother, was completely blindsided by the announcement.
“Discussions with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early state. We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through,” the statement read.

Prince Harry’s Relationship With William
Harry recently admitted in an interview there are tensions in his relationship with his brother William. It appears the tensions are mainly caused by one source – Meghan. Now, this announcement has officially brought this rift into the public.
“Things were already tense between the brothers when Harry met Meghan, but things became much, much worse after they got married,” a Royal insider said. ““It is almost as if she has taken total control of his life.”
From Page Six:
“Harry and Meghan didn’t spend any time with William and Kate, and the two wives don’t get along at all – the distance and the differences between them grew into a vast chasm. William and Kate are far more formal and easily fall in step with royal protocol, Harry and Meghan went in the opposite direction – they have nothing in common.
“Similarly, Harry began spending less and less time with his old, lifelong friends, he stopped being the laddish, relaxed character he had been, he became more private and withdrawn.
“Nobody can blame Harry for wanting to protect his wife, who has had a very tough time with the British press. Harry absolutely loves her and wants her to be happy and safe, and more importantly not suffer as his mother Diana did. But now all Harry’s friends now seem to be Meghan’s Hollywood friends, like the Clooneys,” the source said.
The New York Post’s cover today puts the blame right on Meghan’s shoulders by calling this move “Megxit”. It’s not hard to come to this conclusion given Harry’s issues with his family began after his May 2018 wedding to the divorced American actress.

Meghan Markle And Politics
Meghan appears to want it all. She wants the Royal title without the responsibilities. She was politically active prior to getting married and likely wants to be involved in leftwing politics again.
This past fall, she had Hillary Clinton come visit her and Baby Archie and Frogmore Castle. It is likely that she will want to use her platform to swing American voters to Democrats.
The Royal Family is not permitted to be political so hopefully the Queen will strip Meghan of her title if this happens.
“Everyone is convinced Meghan is the driving force behind this move to quit the royal family,” the Royal insider continued. “She is the one who most wants to be back living in Canada and California, where she feels happy, and to bring their son Archie up away from the restrictive and intrusive politics of Buckingham Palace.”
