How the royal family will change now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit the royal family? 》


The
world has been shaken by the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
want to leave the royal family. The people are mind blown, the royals
are probably having a meltdown and the media is having a field day.
And whether you’re a royalist or not, you’ve probably heard about
this and have formed some sort of opinion or at least have had some
kind of knee-jerk reaction towards this.

If
you have watched the Crown or Downton Abbey, chances you’re
fascinated with traditional British culture and the royals in
general. And why wouldn’t you be? There aren’t that many
countries that still have a real royal family. And while it’s kind
of strange, that is something we find interesting. But the times are
changing and we’re finding out that being a royal isn’t all it’s
cracked up to be. Let’s talk about it, shall we?

The Announcement

Prince
Harry and Meghan Markle chose a very modern way to announce their
plans to leave the royal family. They did it with an Instagram post
that stated this:

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

The Queen’s Reaction

It
has been noted by the media that this came as a surprise for the
Queen and the rest of the Royal family. Probably not in the sense
that Harry and Meghan never mentioned these thoughts out loud, after
all, they have publicly mentioned their struggle to cope with the
media’s treatment of their relationship in a documentary and in
interviews. But apparently, they have not given the Queen a warning
that this post was going up and that Jan 8th was going to be the day
they announce their wish to step back from royal duties to the world.
They were met with millions of questions from the media and complete
silence from the palace. The Queen released a very vague statement on
discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex that said:
“Discussions with The Duke and
Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire
to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that
will take time to work through.”

The Media

The
media chose to interpret that statement as the Queen, not being
thrilled with this decision and not giving her approval. Some have
even suggested humorous interpretations of that statement on twitter
that went along the lines of “These are complicated issues” = “We
are incandescent with fury”. A lot of tabloids jumped onto that
bandwagon and the public seems to be very confused about what’s
actually happening and how will this affect Britain and the Royal
Family.

The Possible Changes

Stepping
back from the royal duties isn’t exactly a new concept. It’s been
done before but generally not by the direct descendants of the Queen
and people who are in line to the Throne. This is very new and
everyone is wondering what will change if Harry and Meghan do leave.
First of all, as members of the Royal family Harry and Meghan had
certain diplomatic responsibilities that they were required to do on
behalf of the Queen that will now have to be passed on to someone
else. The same would have to happen with their charity work. They
still plan to start their own charity project, but they will no
longer be able to work with the charities they worked with on behalf
of the Queen. Another issue they face is their finances. As the
members of the royal family, they were given funds to support and
sustain their lifestyle and once they leave they will no longer
receive grants from the Queen. However, considering how famous they
are we doubt that it will be difficult for them to become financially
independent. They will most likely lose their titles as the Duke and
Duchess of Sussex and neither Harry or his children will be in line
for the throne. Speaking of children, this decision will impact their
firstborn Archie and any other children they might have in the future
will no longer be raised under the Queen’s Sovereign Grant. They will
also probably no longer take part in official royal engagements. When
it comes to their living situation, Harry and Meghan plan to reside
in their home Frogmore Cottage, but they also intend to spend some
time in Canada. All of these are only assumptions at this point and
we’re waiting to see what kind of arrangement Harry and Meghan will
come with Her Majesty The Queen.

The Latest Statement from the Queen

The
last official statement we heard from the Queen was released on Jan
13th and stated this:

“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.”
