Queen to hold crisis talks over Prince Harry and Meghan announcement
The search for a middle ground continues.
Queen Elizabeth has summoned Prince Harry for a crisis meeting on Monday to discuss future arrangements for him and his wife Meghan.
The crisis talks come following the couple’s shock announcement that they want to step back from royal duties.
Elizabeth will be joined at her private Norfolk estate of Sandringham by the Prince William and Prince Charles for the meeting.
It will be the first time the four will have met since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released their statement on Wednesday.
Meghan will reportedly join via telephone from Canada for a time where she returned earlier in the week to rejoin the couple’s baby son, but she is not expected to take a full part in the meeting.
It's not known who else will be at the meeting but reports suggest the Private Secretaries of the four royals will also be in attendance.
Officials have been holding talks behind the scenes since the announcement was made by the royal couple, and have allowed for Monday's crisis meeting to take place.
It's understood the Harry and Meghan did not consult any other members of the royal family before announcing their intention to step back from royal duties.
Monday's meeting will attempt to find a middle ground between the two parties and end the uncertainty that has embroiled the royal family for the last week.
