In the end, the Sussex decided that it was not necessary for her to join the discussion, the source said.
The meeting was held at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, about 100 miles north of London, and Meghan is currently in Canada, with the couple’s youngest son, Archie.
In a statement issued after the meeting, the Queen said that the family would have preferred that the couple “continue to be members of the royal family who work full time,” but “respect and understand” Harry and Meghan’s desire “to live a more independent life. “
The Queen agreed to a “transition period” while detailing the details of her new role, the family announced.
The Queen said she had agreed that Harry and Meghan could divide their time between the United Kingdom and Canada, but that “complex issues” would have to be resolved. The monarch added that he had ordered that final plans be drawn up in the coming days.
Trudeau said “there is a general feeling of appreciation for the Sussex” in Canada, but the talks continue on the exact arrangements.
