The Queen 'vetoes Meghan and Prince Harry's independence bid'

While Buckingham Palace announced last week that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles "agreed to the creation of a new Household for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex", the pair reportedly nixed the idea of Harry and Meghan's complete independence. They wanted an autonomous household, but Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles did not want that to happen.

Immediately following the announcement that Meghan and Harry would be splitting their royal household from that of Kate and William came the news they wanted to be completely independent, and the queen did not give her seal of approval!

While the move to Frogmore Cottage will allow the Duke and Duchess a little more privacy that they now have, we hope that they can find the independence that they are looking for! The costs of the household will be shared by The Queen, using the Sovereign Grant, and the Prince of Wales, using the Duchy of Cornwall funds.

"The feeling is that it's good to have the Sussexes under the jurisdiction of Buckingham Palace, so they can't just go off and do their own thing", the insider added.

Last week it was confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would have their own separate royal household, breaking away from the joint office they now share with the Cambridges under Kensington Palace.
