Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was not at the Sandringham summit when Prince Harry met Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Prince William to discuss Megxit. He was in Canada with Archie Harrison while Harry worked the future of the Sussexes into the royal family. Recently many details have emerged about the top, thanks to two new biographies of the king. One says Meghan was not the first person Harry called when the queen forbade them to use the word “noble.”
Queen Elizabeth gave a ‘heartfelt’ statement about the decision of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
According to Express, the palace repeatedly insisted that the royal family welcome Meghan. They also claim that they did everything they could to make arrangements for the king’s first millionaire family.
Host Ann Gripper and Daily Glass royal editor Russell Myers mentioned in their Pod Save the Queen podcast, the queen’s statements about Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down as senior working royals are “sincere.”
They point out that Queen Elizabeth clarified that she still considers Harry and Meghan part of her family. And he did so despite their surprising decision.
“When we think back to the Queen’s statements when they were preparing to leave the Royal Family. I always thought they were very, very sincere,” Myers said. “I have said before about how the term family eight times. The queen said how wonderful she was with Meghan, how she welcomed her into the family. “
But after Megxit, Meghan said she felt the Firm was “unprotected”. In a speech for the Girl up Leadership Summit, Meghan said the status quo should be “snapped.” Many fans took it as an attack against his in-laws.
Why did Queen Elizabeth end the ‘Sussex Royal’ brand?
Royal historian Robert Lacey has revealed more details of Megxit in his new book Brotherhood Battle. Lacey said Harry and Meghan approached the Sandringham summit meeting as a negotiation.
While discussing the new book at Royally Obsessed The podcast, Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie brought negotiation tactics. According to Express, Meghan’s background in Hollywood influenced her and Harry’s approach to the meeting.
“Harry and Meghan acted like Hollywood lawyers asking for guarantees at every single point as if it were a contractual negotiation,” Bowie said. “I understand because Meghan’s background is Hollywood so I thought that made sense. As an American, we are more contracted.”

They also read a passage from Lacey’s book claiming that Queen Elizabeth always had a soft spot for Harry. He was also “pleased with Meghan.” But, Lacey said her Majesty removed the Sussex Royal brand from Harry and Meghan because she felt “they became unconventional and insistent.”
Ultimately, Harry and Meghan’s desire to be semi-royals while using the power of the “aristocratic” brand will not happen. In other surprising biographies of the king Seeking Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand explain that the idea is “unstable.”
Prince Harry told his staff about Queen Elizabeth’s decision before calling Meghan Markle
According to Express, the idea of Harry and Meghan descending as senior working royals while using the “Sussex Royal” brand would be a logistical nightmare. An insider told Scobie and Durand that if Harry and Meghan had become “semi-working royals,” they would still need to oversee everything they did. Even in their “independent field,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex needed a committee to approve events and agreements.
When Queen Elizabeth told Prince Harry that she and Meghan would not be allowed to use the word “royal” in the future brand, there was an important task she had to do first before calling her husband.
“When the meeting ended, Harry immediately debuted the Sussex assistants before sending a text message to Meghan,” Scobie and Durand wrote.

After her meeting with Prince Harry, the queen issued a statement about their “very constructive discussion.” He also used the first names of Harry and Meghan instead of identifying them as Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
“My family and I fully support Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family,” Queen Elizabeth said.
“While we want them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their desire to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.”
