  • After 24 hours in shock, the Royal Family has just issued a statement saying that the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duke of Cambridge have ordered their teams to find a "workable solution" for the future role of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. (Subscribe: https://bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe)

    And to do so "at pace". An outcome is expected within "days, not weeks." So, having presented their family with a fait accompli, could their plan work?

              If they no longer want to be Royal then let them go without taking anything from the Royal . Let them not come back as they ditched everything

                What a stupid comment about David Beckham and security. Just lost all credibility in his argument. Seriously, he will always be Royal regardless of his job. That gives him some automatic entitlements whether all these sooks like to accept it or not. I would also see how much extra in their pocket everyone is going to see in their pay check every week if they stop paying for their security...like come on. Everyone acts with so much rage like they are sacrificing money from their weekly income for their sake so therefore I would like the media to report the exact benefit to the people if they do pay for their own security.

                          Greed is the word; their hoping to make more money; they don’t want to do “duties” which takes up a lot of their time; Harry and Megan thought this over “ditch the Royal Duties” instead get paid for what all their appearances. I hope it will backfire on them. People will see through this.

                              So many negative things in the american media. People need to hear about something more positive. Whatever they do is their business. We have no idea what this couple has gone through and it's ok to just pick up and go if they want to. Besides people read between the lines, no one watched their televised wedding and covering these two is a diversion from prince Andrew. Why dont they strip him of his title huh?

                                Before, during and after their marriage spears on them by media houses for them to leave. Now they have taken their decision to leave the palace approved by the Queen, blablabla. Human beings are very funny. God help your people on earth.

                                      Not surprise they are dominating the paper and media. They've picked on Meghan in a derogatory way since she's been in the Royal family. If people are going to feel uncomfortable about discussing differences they will never move forward. There is bias around the world. Worst in some areas.

                                              I didn't know that British people were so racist it's a lot of black people living over there I don't really get it I really think they hate royal family why they hated Diana so much I don't really know they pursued her until her death

                                                The Bristish people shouldn't have to pay for their body guards fees.......if Harry wants to be independent on his income, then he can pay for his body guards fees too.
                                                Rubbish.....if the Royal is racist...they won't let her get married to Harry.
                                                Happy they are going ......can't wait

                                                      The Queens wealth is not "taxes"
                                                      She benefits from taxes so that she can live without expenditure.
                                                      AND... she has her game of controlling others to the point of great misery.
                                                      She loves her game with family, and the world.
                                                      Her only reason for being wealthy and living her grand life, 
                                                      is her birth.
                                                      She is living the ultimate "control fantasy" of a Narcissist.

                                                                why these men thinks that they are great predictors, why can't they leave the couple to be just human beings and let them get on.

                                                                  The Royals are the Royals and they need to solve their own Family issues without the world media making a mountain out of a molehill. They always do that. Harry has a title and it should not be stripped he was born with it and stay it should. If it was you your title is your Family title. The Queen will solve the issues that come with this as she has done others. Let the Family be MEDIA and the PUBLIC. You seem to have opinions but it is like all others, it is none of your business. If you want to talk taxpayers pay the front end then you better take the World on as it is all over the world where we pay and pay and pay for the wealthy, what you should be asking or telling is show us how it is done and make the playing field even not balanced for the rich. That is what this seems to me is all about. He is a Prince and should stay a Prince. What is going on in the Family is none of anyone’s business. Let it be before someone is dead. But here we go again Politics, Government, Money and Power. The mix of Satan. That is what it is all about. Get off the Royal bandwagon and have the media do their media work in a better fashion. They want to tell everybody what should be done in their standards and to me they are the ones that try and control the world with lies and hatred and bullying. Back off and let the Royal Family do what they think is best for their Family.

                                                                  Good for Harry and Meghan at least they are true to themselves and their Family. I know Harry Loves his Family he was born into, but he now has his own Family to be the head of the household for and if they do it together then that shows they are a true Family to each other and make decisions together as should be. Just because they have a mark in the world doesn’t mean that we own them they have a right like you and I and that is to live in peace.

Had she been inclusive of her family and cousins and uncles and aunties from the beginning her journey up the isle would of been more in keeping with a girl who had loving family. Regardless of media comment of her family. Family is family, her family were excited for her and her actions not to invite them reflects her selfish ways. She lacks compassion and respect for her Father, and Harry has never met him. Archie will not have a relationship with his grandfather and now the markles are in court .. yikes !! Poor Harry,

First married a devorcee woman of color, as if that wasn't enough, he goes into the unroyal life. This baby boy is out to avenge his late mothers paparazi death. He has not forgotten. This is princess Diana in a male body. He's everything like her mother. The queen knows that.

                                                                                  Divorce ... she did it before and the reason was .. "irreconcilable differences."
                                                                                  The same reason she will give again, for sure.

The guy saying they should renounce all titles, benefits, protection, and allowances is 100% correct. You cannot LIVE a private life and abandon you Royal obligations while clutching on to Royal benefits.

                                                                                      • Patricia Wagner-Montminy

                                                                                        It would seem that they should be staying and fighting racism, instead of running away. When they were putting together their fancy logo in North America were they thinking about all the people in Nottingham and other areas who can’t run away. Were they thinking about how About how their disappearance would impact those who looked up to them.
                                                                                        I think it was a very selfish move. Long planned, behind everyone, including the queens back. They have also stripped Archie of growing about Royal, and raising the hearts of all victimized by racism.
                                                                                        I am from the USA, looking in the window, at the kids wondering if they will spar with Harry again, and point to a homogenized Royal family with one of their own standing*on that balcony.
                                                                                        This business about we want to keep the taxpayer money coming, Frogmre, and other perks isludricous. If you have to fish, or cut bait. And what happens when they are “financially independent”, do they give the boot to the royal family.
                                                                                        Furthermore with the money Diana left Harry, and Megan,s ability to make money THEY ARE ALREADY FINANCIALLY I DEPENDENT.
                                                                                        SO STOPING SUCKING THE ROYAL COW.
                                                                                        Even without the perks they get now they are multi millionaires. How much do they want. Distribute the British money to those struggling to buy food, keep shelter.
                                                                                        I am disgusted that the can’t just buck up and remember the adage, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt Me”.
                                                                                        I hope the Queen puts her foot down and says leave, I can’t stop you,but do not take any British assets with you.
                                                                                        Watching this video and listening to people about what Harry meant to them, and the cheers the Duchess received, should make up one thousand fold for the bad. The only way to defeat evil, racism, as in this case is to stand up and fight it, not cower and run. That,s what the world did with Hitler before Churchill came along and vowed to fight the evil on the beaches, fields, towns, etc ( I know I have it out of honor) but I am sure you all know it.
                                                                                        It is a shame, a Royal shame.
