The Standard has learned of the dramatic sequence of events that led to the sixth in line to the throne effectively resigning from his frontline role “after many months of reflection and internal discussions” in the Sussexes’ bombshell announcement.
Here in America, we don’t pay much attention to the British Royal family, we mostly only hear about them in the tabloids like Prince Andrew and the Jeffrey Epstein pedophile scandal. And while it is true that the Royal Family no longer controls the government, they still have a tremendous influence over their government. To people living in England, as some of my own family do, the Royal Family is a big deal, no, they a huge deal. They were very much afraid when Prince Harry fell in love with the beautiful Meghan Markle, afraid that she as an American outsider would not respect the gravity of the Royal Family, and do harm to it. The worst fears have come true as Meghan Markle seems to be splitting it right down the middle.
“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.” Daniel 2:20-22 (KJB)
Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry have not just decided to ‘go in a different direction’, they have publicly defied the stated wishes of the Queen of England, something that is rarely, if ever done. Brits are famous for their ‘stiff upper lip’ and aloof demeanor, and they do not like their business playing out in the papers. Several senior members of the royal court have said that Meghan and Harry ‘will be punished’ for this. This is not tabloid fodder, this is 1,200 years of political history on the line.
In a monarchy, a king or queen is Head of State. The British Monarchy is known as a constitutional monarchy. This means that, while The Sovereign is Head of State, the ability to make and pass legislation resides with an elected Parliament, so says the official website of the Royal family. Since the monarchy is largely a figurehead here in the 21st century, the royal family exists at the good will of the people, in a very delicate balance. Meghan Markle has turned the apple cart upside down, and it remains to be seen if the millennia old tradition of a ‘royal family’ can survive this rebellion. And 2020 continues to be a year of incredible global change.
Senior courtiers warn ‘Harry and Meghan will be punished for this’
The Queen made it clear to her grandson that he should not proceed with any announcement this week about his future after he requested a meeting with her at Sandringham, according to senior sources. The Duke of Sussex’s apparent refusal to comply with an explicit request from the head of the royal family will help to explain the unprecedented expressions of “hurt” and “disappointment” from the palace over last night’s statement.
- There have been 61 monarchs of England and Britain spread over a period of approximately 1200 years.
The Standard has also been told that Prince William tried to build bridges with his brother in the autumn shortly after the airing of an ITV documentary about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in October. It is understood that William wanted to visit Harry at his Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, but the meeting never happened.

The Standard has learned of the dramatic sequence of events that led to the sixth in line to the throne effectively resigning from his frontline role “after many months of reflection and internal discussions” in the Sussexes’ bombshell announcement last night.
But the Sussexes believe they are helping to deliver a slimmed-down monarchy and that they believe they have the ability to reach out to a younger and more diverse audience than other members of the royal family.
It is understood that:
- Harry originally contacted Prince Charles about spending more time in Canada and America just before Christmas, but was told he needed to come up with a thought-out plan.
- Harry sent a draft proposal about his future role to his father early in the New Year but was again informed that more time was needed to think through the complex implications, particularly over funding.
- Harry asked for a summit with the Queen at Sandringham as soon as he, Meghan and their son Archie, arrived back from their long Christmas break in Canada at the weekend.
- He was told that while the Queen was happy to meet him, she would not discuss his wishlist before he had discussed it in detail with his father.
- The planned meeting was blocked by courtiers, but the Queen made it clear to Harry that he should not go public about his future plans at this time.
- Prince Charles and Prince William, the next two in the line of succession, were only sent a copy of Harry and Meghan’s statement “10 minutes” before it was released and without any further consultation.
- Senior courtiers have warned that “Harry and Meghan will be punished for this”.
The announcement on the Sussexroyal Instagram account, which had attracted more than 1.4 million “likes” by this morning, sent shockwaves through Britain’s oldest institution. READ MORE
