Queen’s ‘secret coping mechanism’ in royal crisis – and title plans for Harry and Meghan
A royal expert has revealed what The Queen reportedly does when there is a royal crisis.
The couple decided to move to Canada in January, but later moved to Los Angeles, where they currently reside with baby Archie.
And how does Her Majesty deal with difficult situations?
…Walking her dogs, according to Editor in Chief of Majesty Magazine Ingrid Seward.
She told The Royal Beat: “When there is a drama in the family, they find it hard to talk to her (Queen). Mummy has her dog mechanism; she just calls the dogs and goes out for a walk.”
It was also revealed that The Queen will review Harry and Meghan’s royal titles next year.
Speculation has been rife about what will happen to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex since they officially stood down from royal duties.
But Seward claimed any decision about what will happen to Harry and Meghan will not be made for a while.
She told True Royalty TV ’s weekly programme: “The Queen will not take those titles away (Harry and Meghan’s Royal Titles).
“She (The Queen) has said very clearly you have a year to decide what you want to do. That year isn’t up until next spring.
So, I don’t think she will do anything until that time.”
Elsewhere, more than two thirds of Brits believe Harry and Meghan should be stripped of their royal titles, according to a new survey.
Research by Tatler magazine found that of 4,174 British adults polled, 68% believe the couple should have the titles taken off them.
A majority also said they were uncomfortable with Meghan commenting on US politics ahead of the Presidential election in November.
It comes as the couple this week drew criticism for participating in a Time 100 video urging Americans to vote, which was perceived as critical of President Donald Trump – although the Tatler survey was conducted last month.
She urged people to “reject hate speech”, but did not mention the current US President by name, or explicitly endorse his rival.
The data, collected by research consultancy Savanta Comres, showed 63% agreed Meghan, although American, should not be commenting on US politics.
And 35% concurred that the duchess “wants to be president of the United States one day”.
Omid Scoobie, co-author of a new book about Sussexes, Finding Freedom, told Vanity Fair he believes it is “destiny” that Harry has finally found happiness at the age of 36.
He said: “This is a man who said he wanted to continue his mother’s work. We’ve long mourned Diana’s place on the humanitarian landscape, and here we have Harry, who embodies her values and is willing to dedicate his life to them.
“He’s at an age now where he’s taken that baton and is able to run with it in a way that he would never have been able to do within the House of Windsor. That’s very powerful and exciting.”
It has been branded a “disgraceful abuse of public money”, but representatives have defended the expenditure.
Harry and Meghan took their baby son Archie, then four months old, to South Africa in September last year on his first royal overseas trip.
