The Duchess of Sussex did not participate in the meeting via phone from Canada to discuss her future with her husband, Prince Harry as planned before while Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Prince William gathered in person with Harry at the queen’s Sandringham Estate.
A palace official reported “In the end, the Sussexes decided that it wasn’t necessary for the duchess to join”.
Queen Elizabeth released a statement following the meeting extending her support to her grandson and his wife after their public announcement of stepping back from the royal family, in order to become financially independent which read, “My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family,” she said in her statement. “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.”
The 93-year-old monarch, however drew attention on the couple’s split time in Britain and Canada, where Meghan has stayed with their baby son, Archie, after spending Christmas holidays in the same location together.
The queen also revealed “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.”
The other side of the story
Harry and William issued a joint statement Monday, condemning a newspaper article where they have expressively claimed that William’s alleged “bullying behavior” drove Hary and Meghan away from the royal family, turned out to be “offensive” as a remark.
