“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
Just like a lot of people, we are big fans of Netflix’s “The Crown.” Getting a peek into the life of the royals and how they handled controversy and scandals in the past can be exciting. However, not everyone agrees. According to E! News, Prince Harry does not want the show to reach him.
“BBC Breakfast” biographer Angela Levin interviewed Prince Harry for her book “Harry: A Biography of a Prince.” During their conversation, “Harry, when I went to interview him in the Palace, the first thing he said to me when he shook my hand was, ‘Are you watching “The Crown?”‘ And I hadn’t been at the time, i felt very embarrassed and I got it and he said, ‘I’m going to make sure I stop it before they get to me,'” Levin shared.
The show’s executive producer also said in an interview, “To be honest, whatever the life of “The Crown” is after where we are now, I doubt we’ll ever go as far into the present day.”
Well, I guess that answers our question of how far the show is going to go. For now, we’ll just wait patiently for season 3, which will introduce Princess Diana into the story.[E! News]
