Royal talks on Harry and Meghan’s future – BBC News

  • Published: 13 January 2020
  • The Queen has announced a 'period of transition' in which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will divide their time between Canada and the UK. Her Majesty hosted talks at Sandringham today said she was 'entirely supportive' of Harry and Meghan's desire for a new role but she admitted she 'would have preferred them' to stay on as full-time working royals. The talks took place as Harry and his brother William issued a joint statement denying claims that their relationship had been damaged by bullying -- on Williams' part. The BBC’s Royal Correspondent Nick Witchell reports from Sandringham and Reeta Chakrabarti looks at what the developments tell us about the changing role of the monarchy in today's society

    This is good news. Why is the royal family even a thing? Seriously what's special about them other than tradition? All of them should get jobs and make their own money.

                          If they wanted to do this I do wish they had waited until after the Queen's death. She doesn't deserve everything she has gone through.

                                5 years and he will be dumped. Until then Meghan rules the royal family and the Queen. Poor William accused just because does not submit to Meghan.

                                  Good grief! What's up with her hair?? She really needs to invest in a brush or two. That's not a good look, the just-out-of-bed look. Whatever she's trying to achieve, it's not working.

                                      Stepping away from full time commitments to royal duties and finding a separate life is the best thing Harry and Meghan can do for their happiness and their family. Even suspending use of HRH titles will be helpful. Charles has spent decades in the role of Heir, William is suffering through that immense (but also wonderful) burden as well. But, like Edward, Andrew, Phillip and even the great grandchildren, they have the royal burden without end. Coming to spend more time in Canada will be good for them. Meghan has worked here so much we all assumed she was Canadian. Even without HRH, Harry will always be Prince Harry and get all of the love and respect we have had for him, and for his mom. What they will not get is the hatred and 24/7 intrusion into their lives. We don't have the negative agenda that so many in Britain have for Harry and Meghan or the other royals. Your press is insane, and criminally toxic, and so many of your populous have an almost irrationally jealous hatred of royals. We have always had a distance and fondness for the royals, and see them as a beautiful addition to our lives, a simple way to feel superior to the Yanks! if you will. So, they will be wonderfully welcome here, supported completely in their endeavours, and protected fiercely from jerks like Piers Morgan. Harry and Meghan will be royals forever here, and get the full respect and dignity that role rightly deserves, whether they are working as Harry and Meghan, or turning out to support a charitable appeal as their true royal selves. They will always be part of the Canadian family, but you can borrow them for special occasions when you want!! Love to you all, except the media, from Canada!!

                                                        If you are expressing the words in music and you are depressed, you want to hear one sound, but a different sound.
                                                        When I go to a place with a mechanical carillon, I often encounter miraculous timings where music happens to happen.
                                                        It happened recently. And the transportation cost of that day was just 1777 yen. I was very happy.

Really WHAT country ?? the same that saw Stephen Lawrence's killers walk away scott free? or the one where BAME citizens suffered excessive subjugation and oppression for the most part? or maybe the one that declared support for apartheid, and only now in 21st century are visibly making reparations that have substance?!!

Meghan would have lost her permanent residence because she hasn't lived in Canada to 2 years if she would have applied to Canadian citizenship then as long as she returned for 6 months here she would of had no problem but she didn't. So she would have to apply again at least Harry has more rites to be a honary Canadian. But Canada doesn't want a king and queen here I Canada.
