The Queen offers Harry a compromise

  • Published: 13 January 2020
  • The Queen says she has had "constructive" talks with other senior royals on the future of Prince Harry and Meghan and will allow the couple to spend time in Canada and the UK during a "period of transition".

    The Queen said the Royal Family "respect and understand" Harry and Meghan's desire for a "new life" - but she said she would have preferred for them to remain full-time working members.

    Queen has to give in to the demands of Harry&Meghan ultimately,
    for Archie may not get denied of his childhood for the sake of history,
    though UK media represents the mentality towards the coloured general in UK,
    Archie's growing up will generate love the same way Harry's childhood exposure did via public!

        1st world problems... I’m more concerned about Ebola and the virus that is spreading in China... I don’t care about a rich families drama nor do I think the rest of the world does.

          Harry and Meghan did the right choise. They need to stay away from negatives and racists peoples who wish unhappiness.
          I wish them the peace.

            Notice how Her Majesty used “family” so many times in her statement. Prince Harry should ponder and choose wisely.

              The Queen is in her 90s, is about to loose her husband and has to save the Monarchy. She has to save face and give her blessing. I am sure it's the family meeting and not just her decision also. I hope they go and people loose interest and the whole Royal family eventually dissolves. No need for them in 2020.

                The decision to quit wasn't Harry's. His not a man. Soon that wife of his will dump him.

                  Her Majesty the Queen is much too kind. After the way Markle has so ungratefully behaved towards the monarchy, nothing should be given to the Sussexes. Markle benefited from having been allowed in the family, and instead of showing gratitude, she's behaving like a user and an abuser. The Markles sure weren't kidding about her...😬

                            Maybe the British will shut up about taxpayers money now on Frogmore and using HRH titles maybe that's what Harry and Meghan probably already told the Queen people go on about what they spent let's see if they go on about the rest of the white royals now they don't know what Harry discussed with the Queen they will earn their own money

                                                  I think Harry should not do this to his grandmother, she is too old and is not fair to her, he at least should wait for her to pass and then yes move away. But I think he should be by her side on her last years, she is 93.
