Harry and Meghan's exit deal 'causing a headache' for palace

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s permanent exit from their roles as senior royals is reportedly causing a 'headache' for Buckingham Palace staff.

Next year, the Queen will celebrate 70 years of service to the nation with a Platinum Jubilee celebration.

However, a source told The Sun that while Prince Harry ‘wants to be there’, the palace are already in a tizzy over where to place the Sussexes and whether or not they can attend the events due to no longer being working members of the family.

“It is already causing a headache and is going to be very awkward,” the source said.

“This is a celebration for the Queen’s 70 years of service to the nation and should not be overshadowed.

“There are now so many questions about what to do with Harry and Meghan.”


The royal family are expected to gather on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the flyover on February 6th 2021, however, it’s not sure if Harry and Meghan will take part in this.

Over the weekend, it was announced that the Sussexes had made their split with the royal family final.

Former soldier Harry, who served on the frontline in Afghanistan, is no longer the Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Force Commandant of the Royal Air Force Base Honington, or Honorary Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands' Small Ships and Diving.

He has also had to relinquish his role as president of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust.

The duke will no longer be patron of the Rugby Football Union and the Rugby Football League - roles he took over from the Queen.

The Queen handed Meghan two royal patronages in 2019, but the duchess loses these: the Royal National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.

Meghan also has to give up her role as vice-president of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family," the palace said in a statement.

"While all are saddened by their decision, the Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family."

The pair, who said they remained committed to their service to the UK, will break their silence on the royal split in an interview with Oprah Winfrey next month.
