Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a request of the utmost importance to Queen Elizabeth II. Although the couple withdrew from royal life, they were keen to maintain certain ties.
Last April, the Megxit took effect. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry flew across the Atlantic to settle in Canada and then to the United States. A new life with their little Archie.
However, the couple wanted to keep some ties with the British Royal Family and the Crown. So, at the end of the year, Meghan and Harry addressed a rather special request to Queen Elizabeth II. Our sources report that the tandem asked the monarch to extend the Megxit agreements by twelve months.
The goal? To retain their royal patronage and their titles of Duke and Duchess of Sussex. An agreement they would sign in person when they returned to the United Kingdom. In addition, the tandem would like to be present for the 95th birthday of the Queen and the 100th birthday of Prince Philip, which the latter is due to celebrate on June 10.
A calm situation
Discussions that would take place in a calmer climate, “less confrontational,” reports one source. However, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are taking full responsibility for their choice to sail to new horizons. “Sometimes making the best decision for you and your family may not be the most popular decision,” said Meghan Markle in an interview with the Fortune Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit. A life now based in Santa Barbara, California, where they earn their living through a variety of independent professional projects in the British Crown.
