Good evening thank you for joining us. Queen Elizabeth moving quickly quickly across the growing minefield today announcing a new direction for the Royal Family in hopes of staunching. A devastating wound this in the wake of Prince Harry and his wife Duchess Megan again shocking. The world with plans to step back from their royal duties how they were driven to this point and now what the future holds here's ABC's James Longman two of the most famous siblings in the world. William and Harry walking through life together inseparable as children laughing alongside their mother Diana sharing in the grief at her funeral. They grew up in the spotlight leaning on one. Another standing standing side-by-side each other's weddings eventually welcoming children of their own. Their bombs seemed unbreakable but now a cowardly hardly their family divided both love each other dearly. But when you get married your family you've got different priorities and in all honesty. I think that they have grown Kapala most. The Duchess of Sussex went public with their bombshell plan to leave their posts. A senior royals loyal bombshell during fall out from Karen in Megan's royal exit if the Queen this was calling denise sparking an international frenzy the British press dubbing. It makes it now. All Eyes on the Royal Family Career as an unprecedented summit cultural by the Queen took place today at Her Majesty's private home in Sandringham Prince. Charles William and Harry all in attendance Meghan in still in Canada with baby archie. He's a father now he's priority is his wife and his son and what I think we're seeing here is. He's putting them I. It's still early days but for now it seems. The family has reached a tentative agreement to Queen voicing support but admitting it was not what she wanted issuing this statement although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued lead part of my family. Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives it has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussex is will spend time in Canada and the UK to number people that know the queen very well and the reality is. She's absolutely as a practice. The property tax just get this resolved just ahead of today's meeting. A glimpse of unity prints wouldn't even Harry releasing their first statement since the announcement pushing back against rumors. That William Bullied Harry out of the Royal Family for brothers who care so deeply about the issues surrounding mental health. The use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially essentially harmful. We're Harry and Meghan have ended up is a fall cry from how it all began a royal wedding watched by Millions but it's not been the fairytale once mentioned they have been given a lot of freedom by royal standards but there are some things that they just have to rules that they have to abide by. I think she has found that restricting. Difficult now won't found the couple's decision coming off two months of rumored rifts inside the palace and growing tensions outside with the impress all this seemingly pushing the patch that breaking point. In retrospect some say they were clues pointing to that ten nine days royal tour of Africa last full at the time the couple opening up to why. TV's tone bradberry in a documentary. Harry and Meghan an African Journey Ari addressing ongoing reports of tension with his brother William. How much of that history Stuff stuff happens but we're brothers were. We'd always be brothers in that same documentary. Megan spoke to Brad about how private struggle to fit in. It's not enough to just survive something right. That's not the point of life. I've got to thrive you gotTa feel happy and I think I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip tried. But I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging now in a new TV documentary. Broadly reflects on how that trip was just the beginning of this ongoing Saga Saga. My best. Guess is they wanted that. I think to be a bit of a pressure relief valve. I think they wanted it as an indication of if they made the announcement which we've now seen that there would be some. I'm preparing the ground. Do you think at that point that two months down the line you know the turn of the year Harry and Meghan. We'll be announcing that. They want pretty much that they won't out doc some would say perhaps it's a clash of cultures. She came with a different background unit. She was American. She was a divorcee. She was independent financially independent. So what's GonNa have to be a readjustment on both sides. Their relationship with the British tabloids has been fraught from the beginning just a few months into their budding romance. British tabloids descended ended on them some with racially charged headlines in country like this one from the Daily Mail that read. Harry's goal is almost straight OUTTA Compton. She's been subject to incredible online abuse as has kate Middleton but I think there is this component of race that Harry addressed even before they were married. Something Meghan would address in their engagement interview at the end of the day. I'm really proud of who I am and where I come from and we have never put any focus on that. We've just focused on who we are as a couple. Some racist coverage played apart but the relentless aggressive coverage on all aspects of their marriage. Eventually it took its toll unfortunately are also certain classes of people who will dehumanize women who dehumanize people of Color and Megan ticks off. All of those boxes in October Tapeh Harry announced he was suing the sun and the Daily Mirror for alleged phone hacking soon often Meghan father lawsuit against the man on Sunday and its parent company claiming illegally leap published a letter. She had written to her father. And you continue and constantly see here. Nativity Commute Roman. You can feel powerless and lost. I feel different confused or like you don't belong in response. Harry got personal. My deepest is history repeating itself. I've seen what happens when someone I love is commodity to the point. They are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watched my wife falling victim to the same powerful awful forces Harry's late mother Diana knew the problems of life in the role spotlight all too well in a television interview with Panorama in nineteen ninety-five. She described the suffocating nature of being royal to pressure on on us. Both as a couple with the media was phenomenal. I misunderstood by a great many people. Donna was beloved but the public's fascination perhaps fueled by the Paparazzi meant that she was hounded relentlessly Harry doesn't like the press because of what happened to his mother and who can blame him But I just think that in terms of the press. We've done what we've been told we've stood where we've been told to stand. We've only taken pictures when sleeping in public and these days there is so much press. There's everything that you see online and on social media and have horrible things being written about them absolutely. They have have theft written about them. Yes that's true now. It seems the couple is trying to take control of that own narrative their website Sussex Royal Dot com launched after last week's announcement laying out new parameters for press coverage of the couple's engagements but given the Queen's statement. Today it's unclear. Just how much of that plan will actually really be put into place. These are complex matters for my family to resolve some more work to be done.
