The royal family is taking action after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they would be stepping down from their roles as senior royals.
The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William have told their offices to work quickly to find a solution to Meghan and Harry’s desire to step away from senior royal work. They have asked their team to collaborate with Meghan and Harry’s teams both in the UK and North America to find common ground. It’s clear that Queen Elizabeth wants to get the situation sorted out as quick as possible.
“The Queen, the Prince of Wales, and the Duke of Cambridge have directed their teams to work at pace with governments and the Sussexes’s office to find workable solutions and this is expected to take days, not weeks,” a royal source shared with PEOPLE.
“This has moved from shock and a range of emotions to something more constructive,” the source added. “It is complicated. This is happening very quickly. And the proof in that is the fact that this will take days and not weeks.” The palaces need to “talk openly with governments” both here and across the Atlantic. “People are trying to work fast through these complicated issues in order to find something that works for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
Some of the discussions that need to be had include funding for the couple and their team, security and protection and where their official residences will be. They also must discuss how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to support the Queen in their new roles and whether this involves foreign tours, which also needs to be run through the government for approval.
