In reaction to the shocking decision to step back from royal duties by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Princess Meghan, the Queen has called an urgent family meeting in a bid to find solutions.
In what can be seen as an unprecedented summit, the monarch, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex will sit down together at Sandringham on Monday.
The Queen was seen for the first time since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed they were stepping down as senior royals.
According to a close source, the Queen continues to request and wish that the discussions about solutions happen at pace and are worked out within days and not weeks.
It was made clear that within the family there is agreement and understanding that any decisions will take time to be implemented – and it is not known what time the meeting will take place.
It was gathered that the couple released the statement without consulting or informing any senior members of the family.
At the time the family were said to be disappointed and hurt.
Sky news reported that it is likely that Meghan might join the meeting by telephone, dependent on what time it takes place.
She is currently in Canada after returning to be with her son Archie, who stayed behind after the family’s six-week break over the Christmas period.
