It seems that since Prince Harry announced in early January 2020 that he and his wife, Meghan Markle, a former American actress were going to take a step back from their Royal Duties as Senior Royal members of The Royal Family, that Markle is now running the show and taking all responsibility of being the boss. Why do we believe this to be true about her? Because before they made their move out of Frogmore Cottage and out of their duties of The Royal Family, she fired 15 staff members from her office in Buckingham Palace.
Markle and Prince Harry chose to live a part of their lives in the U.K and the other part in Canada. Sure, we all know that Harry will miss his Royal Family a lot. However, he is totally committed to his family and will do everything he can to make them happy. He wants them to be as happy as they can and he wants his son, baby Archie to live as normal a childhood as possible. He believes getting him away from the Royal Family will give him the chance to live a normal and happy childhood.
Since Megxit happened, Markle seems to think she is in control of everything in their lives and is taking responsibility from Harry where it is supposed to be. Prince Harry knows he is a strong man though and can handle anything. Even the fact that his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, is taking over responsibility from him and ‘running the show’.
According to a report, since she fired 15 of the staff members, a couple of the employees are fighting to get back in but the rest of them are in the middle of negotiating the severance packages that they should be getting.
One thing is for sure, Buckingham Palace does not talk about matters dealing with the staff. However, Senior Royal officials including Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Prince William now know that the staff members were fired by Markle.
Neil Sean, a UK-based broadcaster had this to say about the situation, “It seems the final nail has been hammered in the separation of Prince Harry and his family thanks to the dismissals of their 15 staff members from the royal household who have been told they are ‘no longer required.’ I have been told quite a few staff members had hoped or offered to transfer over to Canada to continue a working relationship [because of] the fact they all loved [her husband] Prince Harry and working for him.”
Sean reported to Fox News that a close source told him it was Markle who let the staff members go from their jobs in her office at Buckingham Palace.
Sean also said, “Insiders also note that it’s Meghan that deals with this side of things and many believe it’s a simple case of her running the show and taking away any responsibility from Harry.”
He also reported that the former staff members have been and still are very disappointed by everything that has been happening since Megxit began.
Sean also said that the source told him that Markle is playing a dangerous game by ‘running the show’ because the Royal Family is only going to take so much. He also told Fox News that Markle won’t likely be coming back to the Royal Family anytime soon. He said everyone believes that she has no reason to return to Buckingham Palace for a long time since she has nothing to do here and no duties to perform.
Although the Queen spoke very warmly about Markle, she is very disappointed in hers and Prince Harry’s actions and decisions. She had nothing but good things to say about Markle and has always thought well of her. She also says that Markle never spoke up to her about how unhappy she was by being a Senior Royal family member and the Queen sees this as Markle being very rude to her.
Although they have made the decision to step back from their Royal Duties, they will still come to events every time the Queen invites them to.
