While it might be virtual, Queen Elizabeth II is set to have a face-to-face with her grandson, Prince Harry, and his wife, Meghan Markle.
When the power couple announced their infamous “Megxit” from the royal family, they inked an ironclad contract with the Queen in the presence of Prince Charles and Prince William and other key members of the royal household.
The duo is expected to either fly back to London or have a Zoom meeting one year after inking the deal to review it.
Speaking about the anticipated review, a palace source revealed to Metro: “The Royal Family and Sussexes have agreed to an initial 12-month review to ensure the arrangement works for all parties.”
Royal experts have pointed to the many instances that Harry and his wife have stepped on the arrangements they agreed to.
Meghan and Harry were required to remain politically neutral — but they spoke at length about the 2020 presidential election in the U.S.
However, their biggest mistake might be the massive Netflix deal that they have recently signed. The former actress and her spouse were supposed to get the Queen’s approval before making such a huge financial decision.
They declined to get her approval before saying yes to the streaming giant.
Their decision to leave the British royal family in the dark about the impressive check reportedly left the Queen and others extremely upset and has made the review complicated.
Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams recently did an interview with Express explaining that contract will make matters difficult for the power couple.
The commentator told the publication: “Harry and Meghan will be keen on launching their non-profit foundation Archewell as soon as the pandemic permits. They are now financially independent, as they intended to be, and will be involved in planning their deal with Netflix.”
He added: “There will be inquiries as to the work they plan to do, especially given the intentionally malign portrait that Netflix’s The Crown has painted of the Royal Family in the fourth season. The earlier episodes were very different. This could be a problematic area though Harry and Meghan have no links with The Crown, which began in 2016.”
Royal experts and fans wished they could be a fly on the palace’s walls to hear the juicy conversations during that tense meeting between relatives who barely speak to one another.
Meghan and Harry may be controversial, but they still remain very popular figures around the world, so it might be wise for the Queen in terms of PR for things not to escalate.
