Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seem to be winning over Queen Elizabeth. Following the family summit, Her Majesty now says she supports them stepping away from Royal life.
The Queen says both she and the family are fully supportive of her grandson’s rogue move. That said, she’s pretty honest too, and notes she wishes they would’ve stayed on and remained “full-time working Members of the Royal Family.”
Prince William, Prince Harry and Prince Charles all left the meeting at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate separately. They were all discussing the future of the Royal Family and how they’d all move forward after Harry and Meg’s announcement. Meghan, who’s in Canada now, reportedly teleconferenced for the meeting.
The Queen: “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…there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.” pic.twitter.com/8AubXqhggN

Her Majesty says there will be a period of transition while they sort out details on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departure and finances. Harry made it clear they don’t want to rely on public funds and prefer to seek financial independence.
Harry’s grandma also confirmed he and Meghan will split their time between Canada and the U.K.
The Queen has spoken!!!
