Prince Charles 'withdraws support' for Harry and Meghan in UK

Harry and Meghan are being forced to find new arrangements for any correspondence sent to them, after it's been revealed Prince Charles and Clarence House are withdrawing 'financial support' for the couple.

After the Sussexes made the decision to make their retreat from royal duties permanent, the UK Telegraph has reported all professional ties – which include their mail service in the UK – will be severed by the end of next month.

Members of the royal family can receive thousands of letters and cards each month, and staff are employed for each royal household to help organise and reply to them.

The Correspondence Section at Clarence House was previously in charge of handling any mail sent for the Sussexes, as well as Prince William and Kate, and Charles and Camilla.


Now though, Harry and Meghan will need to make new arrangements to receive their mail in the US instead.

The publication reported that letters being sent to the Sussexes had significantly reduced in volume since they left the UK, however they still receive 'sackfuls'.

The mail collection process – which includes staff costs, overheads, stationary and stamps – is reportedly funded privately by Prince Charles.

The Sussexes do have a US address linked to the Archewell Foundation, which can be found on the charity's website. But a source confirmed new mail arrangements hadn't yet been made permanent.

It comes as the royal family are 'appalled' at the timing of Harry and Meghan's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The world got its first glimpse at the explosive tell-all which is set to air next week in the US, but reports suggest the royal family is hoping they will delay the interview in light of Prince Philip's ongoing poor health.

Philip was taken to hospital in London two weeks ago to be treated for an infection and the 99-year-old was transferred to St Bartholomew’s in London yesterday.
