The ‘resignation’ of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as British “workers of the monarchy”, a story that was made public last week, has forced Queen Elizabeth II to carry out a comprehensive reorganization of the responsibilities and positions that they occupy the rest of the members of the royal family, thus covering the gaps that Enrique and Meghan leave in their desire to gain vital independence and, incidentally, build a new media identity in the United States.
According to the British newspaper Daily Mirror, the monarch would have already decided who will be in charge of directing the beheaded patronage from now on and representing the royal house in the different organizations and public entities that have royal members as honorary presidents . “Before even being officially informed, the queen already knew that Enrique and Meghan had no intention of returning, so in her head she already had the names of her preferred candidates to fill the roles that they have left,” he explained an informant.
According to other sources around Buckingham Palace, the sovereign would have already materialized such ideas on paper and communicated to her closest advisers – and those affected, of course – how the organization chart will look after the departure of Meghan and Enrique. The same newspaper ensures that Princess Anne, 70, will become the new Captain General of the Royal Marines, while Prince Edward – the youngest of the queen’s four offspring – will replace Meghan Markle as patron of the National Theater.
On the other hand, Prince William, grandson of the sovereign, brother of Henry and future King of England, will be the new Honorary Commander of the Royal Air Force in replacement of his younger brother. Likewise, it is rumored that the eldest son of the ill-fated Diana of Wales, honorary president of the English football federation, will now be the visible head of all those rugby leagues that are held in the United Kingdom, as well as the World Cup of the Rugby League modality that will be played this year in English territory.
