Queen Elizabeth II's Secret Letter Revealed.

Trending Now

Recently revealed letters from the late Queen Elizabeth II have cast new light on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's departure from royal duties, challenging the couple's narrative of being "forced" to leave due to security concerns.

According to The Telegraph, the letters, presented in court, show that the Queen was keen on ensuring the couple had "effective security," contradicting the couple's claims of being cut off by the Royal Family.

The controversy began when Prince Harry, in a statement read out in court, claimed he felt "forced" to leave the UK after his publicly-funded security detail was downgraded following his decision to step back as a working royal in 2020.

However, the correspondence between the Queen's senior aide and the then Cabinet Secretary revealed the monarch's insistence on maintaining adequate security for the Sussexes.

In his autobiography "Spare," Prince Harry expressed his desperation to retain armed police protection, a sentiment he communicated to his family, including the late Queen.

He described the situation as "total abandonment." This portrayal is now questioned in light of the new evidence.

The debate has intensified, with opinions divided over the couple's decision to step back from royal duties and move to the United States in March 2020.

The Royal and VIP Executive Committee's (Ravec) decision to downgrade Harry's security level has been criticized by his legal team for lack of transparency and failure to apply the usual risk analysis.

The revelation of the Queen's letters adds a new dimension to the ongoing discussion about the Sussexes' departure and their relationship with the Royal Family.
