Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
According to British sources, Queen Elizabeth II agreed to strip some of the royal powers of her 36-year-old grandson Prince Harry and his 39-year-old wife Meghan Markle, after the dukes decided to give a long interview to Oprah Winfrey.
This news, according to insiders, greatly saddened Prince Harry. If the Queen does indeed impose some sanctions on the grandson and his wife, it could mean that Harry will be removed from a number of official posts, including that of Captain General of the Royal Marines. He may also lose his patronage over the Rugby Union and the Rugby League. Meghan will have to give up her role as patron of the National Theater.

The Queen is expected to announce her decision in the coming weeks.
A source close to the couple said that military activities are one of the most important things in life for Prince Harry.
I’m sure it hurts. He is very upset that he was in this situation, but they made their choice,
– the insider shared.
In the interview, which will be released on March 7, Meghan and Harry will talk about Megsit, moving to the United States, their new life after stepping down from royalty, marriage and parenting. It is also noted that they did not set any restrictions for discussing certain topics with the famous TV presenter. Royal insiders point out that this could turn out to be disastrous for them: they cite the example of several television interviews with senior members of the royal family from Princess Diana to Prince Andrew, which were disastrous.
Of course, there are questions as to why Harry decided this was a good idea. On the one hand, he may think that Oprah Winfrey is a reliable friend, but on the other hand, stories from this kind of interview often ended sadly. There is a feeling that he will regret it very much,
