The Queen says she has had “constructive” talks with other senior royals on the future of Prince Harry and Meghan and will allow the couple to spend time in Canada and the UK during a “period of transition”.
The final decisions on how the pair will organise their time and finances will be made in the coming days, the monarch said in a statement released by Buckingham Palace.
The Queen said the Royal Family “respect and understand” Harry and Meghan’s desire for a “new life” although they would have preferred for them to remain “full-time working members”.
