Queen Elizabeth shared a public statement after a 2-hour family meeting.”Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family. My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Megan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the royal family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family. Harry and Megan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives. It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK. These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.” British troops are disgusted at Price Harry for his decision to leave the Kingdom. Former Royal Marine Commando Captain James Glancy praised Harry for his two tours in Afghanistan and his work with charity, but now he’s calling on Harry to quit as the Captain General of the Royal Marines. He then said “If Harry goes down this route of semi-privatizing his role, I wouldn’t raise a toast to him as he wouldn’t have my respect.”

Congrats to Jason Aldean, who flew a commercial Southwest flight to their tropical Florida home….I’m kidding! what he was actually really excited about was that his 11-month old daughter, Navy, successfully completed her first flight, thanks to Mickey Mouse and Coco on the tablet.
