The Queen is not pleased.
The UK’s faith must be cursed with the act of leaving. Scotland tried to leave the UK, the UK left the EU, and recently the Duke and Duchess of Sussex aka Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they would be leaving the royal household.
Officially, they stated they will be “taking a step back from royal duties.” The couple stated that they would like to become financially independent and therefore they needed to reduce their royal workload.
Those of you who watch The Crown on Netflix may be familiar with how Queen Elizabeth II can be when she is not in a pleasant mood. Sources claim that Prince Harry and the duchess blindsided the Queen as they released their statement on Instagram.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
While the queen ordered everyone close to her to find a role for the Duke and Duchess, the UK and the whole world was busy deciding on whose side to choose.
The fans of the royal family are quite upset with the sudden bombshell statement which they find unlawful. Some of them even believe the whole #Megxit fiasco is because of Meghan Markle washing their golden boy’s brain.
They seem to be the minority in this case, as the internet and most of the world took the couple’s side in their quest for freedom. Compared to royal super fans, this side seem to have the ability to empathize.
Even before the royal wedding, the UK press have been giving Meghan Markle a hard time. Both with their racist comments and over the top reactions. The time when she wore a pair of trousers or the time her bra was visible for a millisecond were all used by the press mercilessly. This list can go on for pages if we were to cover all the “scandals.”
People who are on the #Megxit wagon rightfully think that it was almost impossible for Meghan to become a fully functioning royal elder as the pressure from the press would never go away.
This is not the first time people took the “rogues”’ side against the royal family. When Princess Diana was killed in a car crash at the age of 36, the world was devastated. But the fact that the queen was almost unemotional after her death caused a huge backlash so huge, even the royal super fans were stunned.
Queen Elizabeth II may have the law with her, but the people have their sense of humour and it is a weapon that should not be underestimated.
