We have to talk about the Royals…Harry and Meghan, and all of the backlash their “independence is causing.” So it seems as though England is taking the “independence request” from Price Harry and Meghan Markle VERY personally. First of all, the citizens are in uproar because they think the couple should be cut off completely…And Madame Tussauds feels the same, because they’ve taken Harry and Megan’s wax statues out of display COMPLETELY. They are no longer next to Queen Elizabeth, Price Philip, Prince William and Kate Middleton. They released a statement saying “From today Meghan and Harry’s figures will no longer appear in our Royal Family set…to mirror their ‘progressive new role within the Royal institution.’Piers Morgan chimed in on the whole situation and said this. “People say I’m too critical of Megan Markle-but she ditched her family, ditched her dad, ditched most of her old friends, split Harry from William and has now split him from the Royal Family. I rest my case.”

And what about the outfits that Meghan wears every day?

Usually they are funded  by Prince Charles’ estate, which according to the site, pays 95% of the Sussexes’ lifestyle. So it’s unclear whether this will continue, but if she’s going to live in Canada, which is pretty much what they said in their social media post, then I doubt Price Charles will want to pay for all of that kind of stuff.
