Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Slammed for Reportedly Seeking a 12-Month Megxit Extension

Fans angrily slammed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after reports of them seeking a 2-month extension of their Megxit deal with the royal family has surfaced. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are on the receiving end of a backlash from angry internet users after it was reported that the royal couple is seeking a 12-month extension of their Megxit deal with the royal family. 

According to reports by The Sun, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex desire a more permanent deal regarding their position as non-working royals despite bagging multi-million deals with Netflix and Spotify.

The publication noted that Harry and senior members of the royal family would have friendly video calls next month before the Duke of Sussex travels down to the United Kingdom, possibly alongside his wife, to discuss the matter face-to-face. 

According to sources close to the royal couple, the Sussexes are allegedly determined to hold on to their royal patronages regardless of their public, commercial commitments in the United States.

The insider notes that Harry and Meghan's roles before the exit, especially the former's military positions, have been vacant since. Hence, they are up for negotiations in the upcoming meetings.

Extending their Megxit deal isn't all Harry and Meghan plan to discuss with senior members of the royal family.

The Megxit extension news didn't seem to sit well with some royal fans who took to Twitter to bash the couple. An angry user shamed Harry and Meghan, accusing them of being desperate to hold on to their royal ties for media contracts. 

Another fan shared a similar sentiment, urging that the pair should lose the royal titles they are keen on keeping. This user angrily wrote:

"Now they want to extend it so that they can continue to exploit the BRF & their titles further. They perhaps want to record private talks & videos..."

Extending their Megxit deal isn't all Harry and Meghan plan to discuss with senior members of the royal family. Per reports, contracts of their mega-deals with Netflix and Spotify would be scrutinized to make sure it aligns with Her Majesty's values.

Fans may recall that the duo shocked the world in January when they announced their decision to step down as senior members. In agreements made with the Queen, the couple was allowed to keep their titles but not use their royal highnesses.

Their departure was met with criticism from some royal fans who blamed Meghan for tearing Harry from his family. Others, however, defended the couple, saying they needed independence from the institution. 

In more than six months after their exit, Harry and Meghan have also established financial independence. They purchased a home in Montecito and paid off the $3.2 million used for the renovation of their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor.
