    This comes after Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle issued a statement last week announcing that they plan to ‘step back’ as senior royals.

    Taking to their Instagram page, the Sussexes wrote, ‘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.

    “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 For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

    Today the Queen is set to meet with Prince Harry, Prince William and Prince Charles at Sandringham, with Duchess Meghan expected to join the talks over the phone from Canada, to discuss how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will go forward in the monarchy.

    It’s not thought that the Duchess of Cambridge will be attending the meeting, having been photographed taking her children to school this morning in London.

    It’s likely that the Queen, Harry, Charles and William will discuss all aspects of their transition out of their senior royal roles, including how they will conduct themselves financially going forward, where they will live, and whether or not they will keep their HRH titles.
