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.

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.

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

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

…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.
