Prince Charles will ‘ditch’ Harry and Meghan Markle as he plans to reduce royal family’s costs, says biographer
'Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they got from the taxpayer,' said royal biographer Angela Levin
A royal biographer has claimed that Prince Charles’ new plans now include ditching his younger son and his wife - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - from the royal family to save costs. After Prince Philip’s death, it has been said the Queen might take a backseat and the Prince of Wales will start taking more responsibilities.
Angela Levin told talkRADIO, “Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they got from the taxpayer. I imagine that might be when Harry and Meghan are ditched from being members of the Royal family.” She continued: “I think the outer edge, which the Queen has wanted to keep together for a very long time for sentimental reasons, which at her age she didn't really particularly want change which I think is understandable. But he wants to change and I think he will do that.”
Levin added, “He will also accompany the Queen, it's said she's going to be there opening Parliament on May 11th and Prince Charles will be accompanying her. I think although she wants to do her duties she will step back, even more, it'll be quite hard to come back after the pandemic and all the isolation.” The biographer then explained that Charles will be seen more handling duties and that the 95-year-old monarch will not want to “fight Prince Charles anymore.” “In fact, she will be grateful for him to be taking over in making I imagine quite big decisions on behalf of the royal family,” Levin stated.
This comes after the Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9 at the age of 99. He was experiencing bad health for the past few weeks. After his demise, the royal family issued a statement that read, “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. Further announcements will made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”
To be with his family at this difficult time, Harry flew back to the UK from the US. But during the final procession of his grandfather, he was not seen standing beside his father or brother, Prince William. Also, while covering the funeral of Philip in the US, Gayle King said, “William and Harry, there's no secret about this, have had a strained relationship you could say since Harry stepped away from his royal duties.”
