Prince Harry will not meet Queen for personal Megxit talks because of Covid


Prince Harry will not meet Queen for personal Megxit talks due to Covid: Duke. Duke cannot fly to the UK to request a 12 month contract review to quit as senior royals after banning non-essential travel

  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle resigned as senior royals in January 2019
  • The Duke of Sussex planned to meet with the Queen to discuss the Megxit deal
  • However, the ban on unnecessary travel means the couple will stay in their U.S. home

Prince Harry will not meet the Queen in person to conduct a 12-month review of the so-called "Megxit" deal, as the Covid-19 pandemic has put a ban on non-essential travel.

The Duke of Sussex resigned as senior royals along with his wife Meghan Markle last January. The review of their position was due to take place on March 31st.

Prince Harry, 36, planned to request a meeting with his grandmother in the coming weeks, but those plans are said to have been thwarted by the coronavirus pandemic.

According to The Mirror, royal sources have said the prince has "not yet tried to contact the queen" to organize a meeting – but a solution should be agreed in the coming weeks.

It is understood that the couple would like to add time before a deal that abandons their position becomes permanent.

Prince Harry reportedly delayed plans to meet the Queen 12 months after stepping down as high-ranking king along with his wife Meghan Markle

The veteran of two Afghanistan tours is keen to keep all military appointments while Ms. Markle, 39, remains a royal patron of the National Theater.

According to The Mirror, senior advisors are alarmed at the pace at which the Duke and Duchess have signed huge financial deals.

It was revealed last month that the couple had signed up for a podcast deal with Spotify valued at up to £ 30 million.

It comes just months after the Royals signed a £ 100m partnership with Netflix, and days after Meghan invested in a $ 28-a-pack oat milk superlatte business that was later bought by her neighbor in LA , Oprah Winfrey, was advertised for free.

Sources have told The Mirror that courtiers are "re-examining the couple's deals" to see if they align with Her Majesty's values.

A source told the newspaper: "There is undoubtedly a sense of unease about the pace at which they have entered the corporate world and the way they have acted in relation to their various litigation."

The latest deals will help the Sussexes with their promise to become "financially independent" of the royal family after their decision to step back from frontline royal duties in January this year.

A review of the position of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is scheduled for late March. Sources claim courtiers would re-examine the couple's deals carefully to see if they matched the queen's values

The couple has since bought a sprawling nine-bedroom, 16-bathroom mansion in upscale Santa Barbara known as "The Chateau" for $ 14.65 million, making them neighbors to celebrities like Oprah Winfrey.

The couple is believed to have bought the sprawling property, which sits on 5.4 acres of land, from a Russian businessman with a $ 9.5 million mortgage after the price rose more than $ 10 million had decreased.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

MailOnline has contacted representatives from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
