Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II approved the decision of her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Megan to give up their royal duties and independence from the family, after meeting with senior members of the royal family on Monday at her private residence in Sandringham in eastern England.

Queen Elizabeth II agreed that her grandson, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, would give up their royal duties to lead a more independent life, after crisis talks involving the most prominent members of the British royal family.

“My family and I fully support Harry and Meghan’s desire to start a new life as a young family, ” the Queen, 93, said in a statement .

“Although we would have preferred that they remain active members of the royal family all the time, we respect and understand their desire to lead a more independent life as a family, while remaining part of it and residing in my family.”

The Queen explained that there will be a transitional period during which the couple spends time between Britain and Canada, noting that there is a need to do more work on finalizing future arrangements for the couple.
