British Queen Elizabeth II is very disappointed that her grandson, Prince Harry, and his wife, American actress Meghan Markle, announced their intention to resign from the senior members of the Royal family and live in the United Kingdom, then in North America, without having discussed it in advance with Buckingham Palace. The Times reported.
According to her information, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex before announcing their decision on Instagram did not consult with the Queen or with Prince Harry’s father-the heir to the throne, Prince Charles of Wales. The publication draws attention to the fact that the response of Buckingham Palace was quite sharp. “Discussions with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to find a different approach, but these are complex issues that will take time to work through,” the monarch’s office said in a brief communique.
Earlier, Prince Harry, who is sixth in the line of succession, and Meghan Markle announced that “after months of reflection and internal discussions decided to stop acting as “senior” members of the Royal family and work to become financially independent.” At the same time, the Dukes of Sussex announced that they would launch their charitable organization, but would continue to perform certain Royal duties.
The Times notes in this regard that the intention of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to live in the UK, then in North America is unprecedented for members of the Royal family, who continue to perform certain functions in it. They are usually associated with appearing in public at official and charity events.
