Queen Elizabeth denies Prince Harry and Meghan complete independence from royal family

The Palace is believed to have felt that it was better to keep the Sussex's under the watchful eye of officials close to the Queen and Prince Charles.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are expecting their first child by the end of spring. "Meghan previously told well-wishers their firstborn is due end of April, early May and last week shared "They're almost there' at a Buckingham Palace reception".

"They wanted their household to be entirely independent of Buckingham Palace, but were told no", a royal source told the newspaper. There is an institutional structure that doesn't allow that kind of independence. The costs of the household will be shared by The Queen, using the Sovereign Grant, and the Prince of Wales, using the Duchy of Cornwall funds.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are counting down the days until they bring their firstborn into the world, but this weekend, the pair spent their time celebrating the birth of another baby.

Last week it was confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would have their own separate royal household, breaking away from the joint office they now share with the Cambridges under Kensington Palace.

"They can't just go off and do their own thing". It seems they do not want Harry and Meghan to be able to work without anyone to answer to. Yet, being apart of the monarchy does still mean they have to play by their rules as the royal family is the one footing the bill.

Now, even though their household won't be fully independent of Buckingham Palace, Meghan and Harry will get themselves a new household branched within the hierarchy - so, in other words, it's better than nothing!

Buckingham Palace revealed what will happen to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Instagram and Twitter feeds. Sara Latham, a former adviser to the Hillary Clinton campaign, is their new head of communications.
