Trump Feels ‘Sad’ for the Queen as Prince Harry and Meghan Want to ‘Step Back’ From Royal Duties

President Donald Trump is sharing his respect for Queen Elizabeth II after Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, announce that they want to “step back” on their duties as senior members.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote in a statement on Instagram on Wednesday.

They added, “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.”

Late Wednesday, Buckingham Palace issued a statement: “Discussions with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage. We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through.”

The news of the couple wanting to “step back” on their roles as senior members has drawn a lot of responses on Twitter. Some even dubbed it “Megxit.”

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

Speaking with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Trump said that he felt “sad” for the Queen.

Asked if he would give the Queen any advice on the “rogue royals,” Trump responded, “I think it’s sad. She’s a great woman. […] She’s never made a mistake if you look. I mean, she’s had like a flawless time.”

“I just have such respect for the Queen,” Trump said in the interview aired late Friday, adding, “I don’t think this should be happening to her.”

While the couple state that they plan to “balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America,” they did not identify exactly where they would be living. However, some speculate that it would be Canada. The two spent six-weeks in Canada at the end of 2019, and Meghan has returned to the country in recent days following the unexpected announcement.

  1. To the Confused Genital,

    (because I suspect my reply will be disappeared)

    Consider the source. Someone who defeated his opponents. bypassed the MSM gatekeepers, and has actually helped the US. Someone who continues to obsess the Dims and befuddle their efforts while keeping them from passing bad legislation.

    Now consider your lack of credibility. What words of wisdom would you offer Maduro or Rocketboy, socialist to socialist?

    Whatever will you do when Bernie flames out in defeat? Boohoo. You can’t get your hands on our money.

  2. “Asked if he would give the Queen any advice on the “rogue royals,” Trump responded” with nothing.

  3. I think the take away here is who the hell cares what descendants of monarchs who lorded over people they seemed lesser do. They are rich asses born into inmense wealth with absolutely no real responsibility since they don’t even rule their country anymore. They to this day make a luxury living off the backs of the people and they still cherish these former monarchs.

    1. Correction they get money from their taxpayers they never earn it for themselves and I don’t care

  4. Harry marries a tramp and she has him by the balls, bloody shame I’d say you blokes.

  5. Who frikin cares? This isn’t news worthy—-who really gives a damn what Meg & Har do? Not me—-Media needs to focus on news not family squabbling—-gesh!

  6. Well we know who is wearing the pants in that family, and it ain’t Harry. Meghan Marxist has his balls in a box in a special attache case. She keeps them close by to remind Harry, just who the boss is. She didn’t want to give up her line of cosmetics which is prohibited by the Royal Family. So the not so Royal loving Meghan put her foot down and told Harry. “We’re outta here.” As many problems the Queen thought she had with Princess Diana, at least Princess Di knew how to act while still married to the douche bag Charles. And now add HIS brother to the mold, Andrew and the Lolita Express trips. things are not going so well for the Royal family. There is still hope with Prince William and his wife Kate who seem to both have a lot of class.

    1. I’m not so sure Diana knew how to “act”. She had a wild side.

  7. As Americans, we must realize that our opinions are irrelevant. As an individual, I think Harry and Megan are making a smart choice. Recognizing he has fallen to fifth in line, with the yet possibility of falling further, he has little likelihood of getting the throne. He has an uncle who, with Harry’s birth, found himself in the same situation and started an independent business. Harry’s son is sixth in line and I think, as a father, he feels the responsibility of teaching his son how to develop his own purpose in life and earn a living. What better way to teach than to do it himself. As I understand it, he is foregoing the royal pension provided by the government. He still retains every right to the income provided by the trust left by his mother. As far as their titles go, bestowing and stripping titles has always been and still is at the whim of the monarch.

  8. …and we should care about the British royal melodrama exactly why?

    Were I a British citizen I’d be wondering why my tax pounds were going towards sustaining these people. They lost relevance after 1217, but continue to hold huge properties and receive millions in pounds per year as a subsidy.

    The useless Congress critters who got rich in office can only look on in envy.

  9. I’m curious why the Left is NOT screaming “white privilege”. TheBritish royals literally define that and social-climbing Meghan is now part of it.

    Harry and Meghan won’t miss any meals while taking private jets to talk about global warming. They won’t worry about mortgage-payments/rent or medical coverage. Just like any of the elite, that is the essence of the “privilege” they rail against.

  10. If they don’t want to perform their royal duties, that means they should give up their royal titles. But they won’t as “duke and duchess” are worth more than Harry and Meghan. He can always get a job as a pilot. Then again, it is England and I am American

  11. This should qualify for Harry’s name and also their children being removed from “heir to the throne”.

  12. I knew Megan was trouble from the beginning. Amazing she is estranged from her family and estranging her husband and she from his

  13. The citizens of England should be outraged because of the millions of pounds they have paid to educate him and support his extravagant lifestyle in exchange for nothing. They deserve to be paid back with interest.

  14. Who cares about the royal family of England or for that matter any royal family. I say again WHO CARES.

  15. Gee confuction and syphilis you having any intelligence at all would be a huge story. Alas, we know it will never be. This probably came about because of meghan and is the reason there is so much animosity between her and the Queen. I’ll stand on the side of the Queen. I hope the Queen completely disavows them.
