It seems like this new year has been a bit too dramatic for the royal family as well. Recently the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made an announcement that has left people shocked.
Apparently, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced their decision 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. However, according to rumors things have been complicated a bit and the Queen has finally issued a statement.
The Deputy Communications Secretary to The Queen, Hannah Howard, has opened up about the whole situation. They understand the couple’s desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through, said Hannah Howard.
This sudden news is not, however, much of a shock as there were some ongoing tension in the royal family for quite a while now. The couple did not even spend the holiday season with the royal family as well. It seems like this news was coming anytime soon. Let us see how this political upheaval is taken care by the royal family.
And Queen Elizabeth broke her silence regarding the matter. She released a statement saying,”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. “
