Harry and Meghan’s royal role ‘will evolve’ when Charles becomes King
The crowning of Prince Charles as King could lead to an “evolution” of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s role in the Royal Family, a royal commentator has suggested.
Harry and Meghan announced their permanent separation from the Royal Family last week as they continue their new life in Los Angeles.
Buckingham Palace’s statement said it was “not possible for the couple to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service”.
But, according to royal commentator Rachel Bowie, this new role as non-working members of the Firm may not last forever.
Speaking on her podcast Royally Obsessed, she suggested that their could be a shift in opinion once the Queen passes the crown onto next-in-line to the throne Charles.
“I obviously love the royals I just wish there was a way to have continued Harry and Meghan’s role formally, somehow, and kept them in so that they were happy,” she said.
“I think we’ll get back to that and this is an evolution.
“Obviously, when Charles is on the throne and William, eventually, I think that this is all going to evolve, this role and relationship.
“It’s just more sad right now.”
Following the Palace's announcement that the Sussexes will be splitting from the Royal Family, Harry and Meghan released their own statement.
They said "we can all live a life of service" and the message raised eyebrows among some royal commentators, with ITV correspondent Chris Ship saying they "hit the roof" after the Palace's statement.
In the same week the news broke of the couple’s separation from the Royal Family as well as their second baby on the way, it was also revealed that Harry and Meghan will be sitting down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all interview.
The show made by CBS has already been filmed and will air on March 7, with ITV the frontrunner to show it in the UK.
Fears have already been raised about what could be said in the interview, with Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers saying it’s a “disaster waiting to happen”.
And Martyn Compton, who has been friends with Harry for over 15 years, has said he “hopes the interview is worth the high price he paid”.
