Royals Reportedly Disappointed
Meghan and Harry’s shocking announcement regarding their plans to resign from royal office and their capacities as senior royals to the extent that they are able to make a living for themselves (royals are not permitted to earn an income aside form the royal grants funded by British taxpayers) has in the meantime been described as their having “pressed the nuclear button” on their royal careers. In fact, it has even bee described on Twitter as “Megxit”!
The news broke together with wide-spread statements in the British press about the remainder of the royal family; including Prince William and wife Catherine; being disappointed at the announcement. The allegation is also being made that the couple failed to discuss any of their plans with any member of the family, including the Queen. Some reporters have alleged having received tip-offs from royal correspondents that the family is “furious” about not having been consulted by Meghan and Harry beforehand.
Canada May Be Their New Home
As to what may follow in the days and months to come, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will in all likelihood proceed to settle down in Canada, where Meghan and Harry first fell in love. This theory is supported by the couple’s six-week-long breakaway up North immediately prior to the explosive announcement having been made.
The main driver behind the couple’s decision appears to be a desire to become financially independent and to “carve out a progressive new role” for themselves.
