Queen Comes Out In Support Of Prince Harry And Meghan

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.
