Queen issues statement on Meghan Markle, Prince Harry after family talks, agrees to part-time move to Canada

Queen Elizabeth II on Monday responded to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to “step back” as senior members of the royal family and issued a statement agreeing to allow the couple to move part-time to Canada.

“Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family,” the monarch shared in a statement widely circulated on Monday.

“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,” the 93-year-old continued. “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,” she said.

The British media, accused of being racist have frame the consensual decision of both Megan and Harry as #Megsit. Meghan Markel is black. She’s an African American woman.
