The Queen Makes Statement After Sandringham Summit

It seems to be going well.

The Queen

It was a summit the likes of which the royal family has never seen before. The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry, coming together at Sandringham to discuss their most recent, explosive problem: Megxit. Now, the Queen has spoken.

Last week say an unexpected announcement from Harry and his wife, Meghan. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed that they wanted to 'step back' from their roles as senior royals, and would spend much of their time in North America. Their new website made it look like everything had been worked out, but that was not the case: a second statement was released by Buckingham Palace establishing that there was a way to go, while sources stated that the Queen was 'disappointed' by the news. The summit was planned in order to find a solution, and a new statement suggests that conversations are ongoing.

'Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family', it reads. '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.'

Watch this space for a resolution.
