A Royal face-off at Sandringham

From Summer Report, 7:10 am on 14 January 2020

The Queen has met face-to-face with her grandson, Prince Harry, as the Royal family grapples with him and his wife Meghan's plan to step back from their duties.

What's been dubbed the "Sandringham summit", at the Queen's estate in Norfolk, also involved the heirs to the throne - Prince Charles and Prince Williams.

The Duchess of Sussex was expected to join the meeting by phone from Canada, where she is with the couple's young son Archie.
