Meghan and Harry’s SECRET motives ‘concern’ Queen – monarch ‘watching Sussexes like hawk’ | Royal | News

Julie Montagu Viscountess Hinchingbrooke made the comments during Channel 5 documentary, “Royals: A family in crisis”, which aired over the weekend. She was referring to recent developments in the Firm after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced plans to step down as senior working members of the Firm, citing privacy concerns and the desire to become financially independent.

Commenting on the royal split, Ms Montagu argued the Queen would be concerned about the hidden agenda behind the move, as she would ensure the young Sussex couple were not profiting from the Crown.

The Queen is thought to have imposed strict conditions upon Meghan and Harry under the terms of the agreement thrashed out at a Buckingham Palace summit last month, with some dubbing the royal accord a “hard Megxit” as the pair had originally wanted to continue their work for the Queen.

One such measure will see the deal brokered between the Crown and the Sussexes subject to review after a period of 12 months.

Addressing the 12-month review condition, Viscountess Hinchingbrooke said: “Putting that 12-month review in place goes to show you that the Queen will be watching them like a hawk.

“She will want to see everything that they are doing, what they are making money from and how it is affecting the Royal Family.

“So there must be some concern from the Queen about what their intentions are.”

With Meghan and Harry now gearing up for a life on the other side of the Atlantic, the Queen will be forced to adjust to a life without her beloved grandson after she effectively fired him from the Firm.

But experts have argued, although the decision to cut Harry out will be heartbreaking for Her Majesty, the monarch always puts the good of the Crown ahead of both her own and her family’s personal welfare.

They will both join the entire Royal Family at the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.

And as of March 31 they will no longer be working members of the Royal Family.

The issue of funding for the couple’s security has been a subject of contention, as the British public question if they should pay for the Duke and Duchess’s protection overseas.

Addressing the matter of security, Meghan and Harry said on their website: “It is agreed that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to require effective security to protect them and their son.

“This is based on The Duke’s public profile by virtue of being born into The Royal Family, his military service, the Duchess’ own independent profile, and the shared threat and risk level documented specifically over the last few years.”
