The British royal family is reportedly set to meet on Monday to discuss Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and their recent bombshell announcement that they will “step back” from royal life and split their time between the UK and North America.
The meeting will include Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry, but Markle may also dial in to the meeting from abroad, CNN and NBC News reported Saturday, citing palace sources.
Prince Harry and Markle announced via Instagram on January 8 they would step back from their royal duties and “work to become financially independent.”
“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
