A second seemed to agree: "Good. Love the Queen. It must have been a hard decision for her but the right one. Just hope Harry is happy."

The Queen issued a formal statement on Saturday regarding the final outcome of the 'Megxit' negotiations, over a week after Meghan and Harry announced they were "stepping down" from their senior royal duties.

Her statement read: "Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family.

"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family.

"I recognise the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life.

"I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family.
