Queen Elizabeth II released a statement today following family discussions held at her estate in Sandringham, Norfolk (now affectionately being called the "Sandringham Summit") where the family started to talk through the practical implications of the decision made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry last week to step back as Senior Royals. The statement makes it clear that the Queen's preference, at least, is for Harry and Meghan to remain full-time members of the Royal Family, a signal of her personal support for them both and for their work. Much is unsaid in this release and more details will likely follow. For now we can expect Harry and Meghan to have a base here in Canada as well as continue to have a home in the UK. Good news for everyone!

I know we should not encourage the tabloids to hunt out pictures of Meghan, Harry and Archie, but it was lovely to see a recent pic. of the "Adorable Archie" just ahead of his second birthday on May 6th 2021. And look at Meghan's bump. Baby No.2 is growing nicely and it appears that it won't be long before Archie's sister arrives. Was Archie off to a play date? (And in case anyone wants to bitch about the fact that Meghan is not wearing head-to-toe black, in mourning for Prince Phillip, Princess Anne was out and about this week wearing a very non-black hue called Red - just getting this in first before the trolls start) Photo as published by the New York Post
