- Prince Harry contacted the Queen and his father, Prince Charles, in January to announce his plans to leave the royal family.
- March 31 signals the final day of the couple’s association with the royals, after which they are free to pursue “financial independence.”
- “Simply” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly informed the royal family of their impending exit by email.
As Meghan Markle and Prince Harry finally reveal their true intentions by moving permanently to Los Angeles, it has emerged that they initially informed the Queen and Prince Charles of their plans in the most shameful way possible: via email.
Following a six-week family break in Canada, which was more of a secret planning session than the innocent holiday Harry and Meghan had led the Queen to believe it would be, the bombshell email was sent.
The reaction of the royal family was telling
You would be forgiven for thinking the royal family would react angrily to Prince Harry’s decision. After all, we’ve been told by Meghan Markle fans that the royals are the epitome of evil.
That wasn’t the case, though.
Both the Queen and Prince Charles advised Harry not to “rush into anything,” and to consider what he was asking of them.
Hardly the actions of a family who supposedly hated Meghan Markle and wanted her gone as quickly as possible.
It was quite the opposite. According to a report by Rebecca English, the royal editor at The Daily Mail, the royals:
Understood that he and Meghan wanted something different and were willing to help, but it was complicated. There were issues like security and funding, visas, and tax, which neither of them had thought through.
Ironically, we’re already seeing the security issues come back to haunt them. U.S. President Donald Trump has confirmed the U.S. government will not be footing the bill for Meghan and Harry’s security detail.
Despite an appeal for calm heads, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle didn’t want to listen
