Queen agrees to let Harry, Meghan move part-time to Canada

Queen Elizabeth’s Christmas message

SANDRINGHAM, England (AP)- Britain’s pragmatic Queen Elizabeth II has brokered a deal to secure the future of the monarchy, charting a course for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan that allows them to live part-time in Canada while still remaining firmly tied to the House of Windsor.

The British monarch says a summit of senior royals on Monday was “constructive,” and that it had been “agreed that there will be a period of transition,” to the couple’s new life. The meeting at the queen’s Sandringham estate marks the first face-to-face talks with Harry since he and Meghan unveiled their wish to step back from royal roles.
