THE Queen has demanded the Palace strike a deal with Prince Harry and Meghan within 72 hours – as her grandson looks set to leave the UK in the coming days.
Buckingham Palace has been thrown into chaos with the revelation that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to quit as senior royals and move to Canada.
After announcing their controversial decision on Wednesday, Meghan, 38, flew to North America on Thursday night leaving her husband to deal with the fallout.
Now it has been reported that the Queen, 93, has instructed her courtiers to solve the dispute Tuesday – ahead of Harry’s first public appearance next week.
The beloved monarch wants the crisis to last no longer than six days – which is the same timeframe it took to sack Prince Andrew following his disastrous Newsnight interview.
According to The Telegraph, the Queen has told Palace aides to “turn a crisis into an opportunity” by carving out of a deal which will serve as a blueprint for future royal “spares” such as Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
A source close to Harry, 35, said he would not leave the UK until “a satisfactory deal” is struck on his family’s future within The Firm.
However, it has also been reported that he could leave the UK, with no return date set, soon after honouring an official engagement at Buckingham Palace next Thursday.
The Duke has still not held meetings with his grandmother, his father or his brother over the crisis.
