How can you be a part time royal?

From Summer Times, 9:08 am on 14 January 2020

Now to the UK where the Queen has issued a statement saying she is entirely supportive of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan's decision to step aside from their royal duties.

The comments follow a royal summit at Sandringham, where senior members of the family met face-to-face with the Queen to discuss new roles for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

I am now joined by Laura Elston who follows the royal family for the press association in the UK.

 Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will step back as senior members of the royal family and spend more time in North America, the couple said in a shock announcement on January 8, 2020.
