Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced through a bombshell Instagram post on Wednesday that they would 'step back' from their senior roles to become financially independent and spend more time together in North America - in a move that has 'simply astonished' aides as the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William called crisis talks to hammer out a deal to keep them in the royal family. 
Charles and William were both said to be left 'incandescent with rage' after learning about the Sussexes' announcement just 10 minutes before it was published on the couple's own Instagram page.

Prince Charles has made it clear he will stop funding Harry and Meghan if they completely ditch royal life, according to reports. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex currently get about 95% of their costs covered by the Prince of Wales who is said to be ‘hurt’ at not being consulted before their shock announcement to step back as ‘senior royals’. Last night the Queen ordered royal officials to come together with the Sussexes to find a swift solution to the crisis. However, Meghan has returned to Canada leaving Harry to face the wrath of his ‘disappointed’ family, including father Charles and brother William.
