Queen Elizabeth II is said to have decided “a long time ago” who will step in for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal protection after the couple’s departure from palace life, according to a new report.
On Monday, reported Britain’s Daily Mirror the 94-year-old monarch is expected to reveal his choices to the royal family in the near future, as it was revealed on Friday that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had officially resigned from all royal duties.
“When the text was on the wall and it was clear that the Duke and Duchess did not intend to return this week and be part of the team, the Queen long ago drew attention to her preferred candidates for the roles they left,” said a Royal source of the publication.
Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, who is expecting her second child together, had several protections during his time as a working member of the royal family, including the Royal Marines, the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, the Rugby Football Union, the Royal National Theater and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
Princess Anne is rumored to be taking over Harry’s captain in the Royal Marines, The Mirror reported, while Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, or her husband, Prince Edward, could take Meghan’s place as patron of the National Theater.
In January 2020, Harry and Meghan announced that they would be retiring as senior royals. They have since moved to California with their son Archie, who turns 2 this spring.
Next month, Meghan and Harry appears in a primetime sit-down with his friend Oprah Winfrey. Earlier this week, it was revealed the queen will broadcast a television address the same day as Sussex’s interview.
