Okay, is anyone as obsessed with any and ALL headlines Prince Harry and Meghan Markle-related? Yesterday, they announced on their new website, SussexRoyal.com, that they would be (basically) breaking away from their Royal duties.....
“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."
So many rumors are flying. The Queen is "furious." They will live in Canada. They may live in LA. Prince William and Prince Harry no longer speak. Are any of them true?? Who knows. There are other logistical questions like: how will they earn money? What kind of funding will they receive from Prince Charles? Who will pay for their security?
Only time will tell, I guess. For me, personally, I think it is brave and admirable that they are doing what THEY want. I know tradition matters. But so do freedom and individuality.
Also, on a catty note, check out the hilarious photo from Madame Tussaud's in London. They REMOVED Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from their "Royals" section. Ouch!
