The Queen and Prince Charles were not aware of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to quit royal duties.

There is much “anger and confusion” with senior royals and officials at Buckingham Palace over the way this has been done.

Following the shock announcement, a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said, “We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through.”

The couple’s bombshell announcement has left the Palace “disappointed,” the BBC claimed.

Harry, Meghan and their son Archie will spend their time between the UK and North America, as they want to become “financially independent.” The announcement further said, they are seeking to “provide our family with the space to focus on the next chapter.”

In a statement the couple said, “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.”
