The Queen ‘told Meghan she didn’t have to give up playing or taking on royal duties’ when she married Prince Harry
The Queen told the Duchess of Sussex that she did not have to be a full-time member of the Royal Family when she married Prince Harry and that she was free to continue acting, said a royal biographer. The Duchess revealed to Oprah Winfrey in a blockbuster interview last month that she was forced to give up her passport and driver’s license when she joined the family in 2018, and that she sometimes felt suicidal and alone. But Andrew Morton, who has written a prominent biography of Princess Diana, told the Royally Obsessed podcast that the Duchess was not precluded from pursuing her career or a private life and said Her Majesty had given the Sussexes different routes to be taken within the family. “The queen gave them [the Duke and Duchess] the opportunity to go where they see fit, ”said Mr. Morton. “We gave them some latitude. “They were told, ‘Here are your first class tickets, choose which country you want to go to, we are going to make you young Commonwealth ambassadors.” “They said to Meghan:’ If you don’t want to take office full-time royals, be our guest and continue your acting career. ‘ These opportunities were open to him.
