After the British royal family meeting at Sandringham, following the Harry and Meghan's surprise announcement last Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth issued a statement Monday saying: "My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family."
"It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK," the statement added. Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, say they no longer plan to accept taxpayer money through the Sovereign Grant. Previously, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex established their own household, moved from Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage, launched new charitable initiatives and separated from the Royal Foundation. Harry and Meghan's last public appearance together was on Jan. 7, when they visited Canada House in London to show their appreciation for the time they spent in the country last month.
Surprisingly, it’s said that sir Elton John was a confident of Harry and Meghan about their plans even before the Queen was informed. But he didn’t influence them. To remember from the history of the royal family, John and Princess Diana were very close when she was alive.
