Meghan and Harry fear losing ‘more control’ to the Queen over Megxit

Meghan and Harry exit is the ‘biggest royal sell out’ says expert

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family last year and have moved to California with their son, Archie. The couple were expected to discuss their exit deal in March this year.

But royal commentator’s Maggie Rull and Omid Scobie have said the couple fear losing “more control” following the Megxit review.

Ms Rull said on the HeirPod podcast: “I am curious about the review, it is two-sided right?

“Harry and Meghan need to sign off and say they are happy with how things are and that they do not want to review it.

“The Palace had to as well, is that correct?

“So could the Palace by any chance come to them and say we want a different relationship with you after these 12 months, we want more control, is that also a possibility?”

Mr Scobie – the co-author of Finding Freedom – added: “I think as we have seen anything is possible in this situation.

“But this really was the Queen wanting to leave the door open to the couple so that they can find their feet and come back 12 months later.

“If things need to change or anything needs to be discussed, it can be.”

The Megxit review was expected to assess whether or not the couple could keep their HRH styles and Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles going forward.

But another Royal insider has said the deal with not be reviewed by the Queen as planned as there is “no need”.

Vanity Fair royal correspondent Katie Nicholl told True Royalty TV’s Royal Beat the one-year review was unlikely to go ahead.

She said: “My understanding from the Sussexes camp is that there has been communication with the Queen, Prince Charles and with William as well.

“The general feeling is that this [current situation] is working.”

Ms Nicholl added: “This isn’t to say that people are not watching closely what these deals are, what the couple are doing and what these projects are going to be.

“But there is not this need to have this review one year on.”

The couple stepped down from the Firm in a bid to become financially independent.

They have since since lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify.

Since stepping away, the couple have held on to their royal status despite no longer serving the crown.

However, their recent activity has angered royal fans who have urged the Queen to remove their titles completely.

Royal Family members are meant to remain politically neutral and Meghan and Harry ruffled feathers ahead of the US election by encouraging Americans to vote.

While some felt Meghan and Harry overstepped the mark, they did not explicitly align themselves with one political party in the lead up to the US vote.

The couple agreed with the Queen that they would not use the word ‘royal’ in conjunction with their work going forward and wound down their Sussex Royal Foundation following their withdrawal.
