Queen Elizabeth says discussions on future of “my grandson and his family” were “constructive”

Queen Elizabeth said discussions on the future of “my grandson and his family” were “constructive” Monday as the so-called royal summit ended Monday regarding the future roles of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan of Sussex.

“My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family,” read a statement from Buckingham Palace. “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.”

She said Harry and Meghan aren’t seeking to use public funds in their new lives but are looking to focus more on their lives as a couple.

“It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the U.K,” the statement said. “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.”

All parties can perhaps step back a bit after the tumult in recent days following Harry and Duchess Meghan’s historic announcement last week they would look to live in North America part time and back off their royal duties.

Media swarmed Sandringham, the queen’s private estate in Norfolk about 100 miles north of London, where the summit took place.

Harry reportedly stayed in the UK through the weekend, while Meghan rejoined 8-month-old baby Archie in Canada.
