The only way forward for the pair would be to try and do things their own way. On Monday, January 13, 2020, Queen Elizabeth, 93, held a meeting to discuss Harry and Meghan’s decision.

The meeting was attended by Harry, his brother Prince William, and their father Prince Charles. It was held at the Queen’s country estate in Sandringham.
