10 days after I blogged about Prince Harry & Ms Markle’s controversial statement that they were stepping back as senior royals, it looks like HM the Queen has sorted things out.
They are now stepping down. Not back.
No more HRH for the pair.
The British taxpayer’s money spent on their “cottage” is to be repaid.
No more representing Her Majesty.
No military duties for the Prince.
And the nicest of statements from HM, wishing them the best of British. Actually, it was a very nice, very personal statement, far more grandmotherly than monarch-y.
So, all in all, an acceptable solution, and now they are free to go to North America & earn money & once we know who’ll be paying for their security, this whole saga will be over.
I’m not sure if there is a winner in this episode, or indeed if there even needs to be a winner, but if there is – well, I posit that HM the Queen has emerged as victor.
None of that half in/half out malarkey, that the pair wanted.
No earning money & using titles, while not doing any of the boring old bread-&-butter royal work.
I think we are now pretty much done with this story…well, for the time being, at least 😛
Now perhaps Britain can get back to the important business of deciding how they are going to mark Brexit…‘struth.
