The Queen is Now Supporting Harry and Meghan's Desire To Step Back!

After weeks – perhaps months – of apparent dysfunction, Britain’s Royal family is putting on more of a united front than many have see in some time. For one? Queen Elizabeth is agreeing to a "transition" period as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle step down as full-time royals. The remarks came after the highly anticipated “summit” involving Her Majesty, Prince Charles, Prince William and Harry. In a statement, Queen Elizabeth II says the family had "very constructive" conversations and they are “entirely supportive” of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. She noted that the family would have "preferred" they remain full-time members, but understands the couple’s wish to live a more independent life. She also made clear that Harry and Meghan "do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives." What comes next is anyone’s guess, but this would appear a constructive foot forward. Also, on a different note, Prince William and Prince Harry are also coming together to condemn "inflammatory language" used by a media outlet describing the relationship between the brothers. In a joint statement, Harry and William accused an unnamed outlet of publishing false claims about the relationship between the two men. At issue, the suggestion that William has 'bullied' Harry out of the family. The statement said the brothers care deeply about the issues surrounding mental health, and the language the outlet used is "offensive and potentially harmful." I'm just glad the family is coming together. We forget sometimes because they're royals that they're also actually just a family who has to work through stuff just like we do in our family. I wish all of them the best!
