The event follows the surprise announcement last week by Prince Harry that he, the Duchess of Sussex and their 7-month-old son Archie would split their time between Britain and North America.
The queen and other senior members of the royal family were disappointed by the move, which was made without prior approval. While they’re expected to detail the next steps of the situation, a finalized agreement is not expected at Monday’s summit.
The couple said in their announcement they wished to create a “progressive new role” within the monarchy, establish financial independence and split their time between continents. Such a transition is unprecedented in modern royal history.
By removing themselves from the traditional roles, Prince Harry and Princess Meghan would no longer be based full-time in Britain — where Harry is sixth in line to the throne after his father, brother and William’s children, George, Charlotte and Louis.
