Queen Elizabeth Just Gifted Prince William Something Special Amidst Megxit Drama
Lately, it seems that the royal family has been completely revolving around “Megxit.” There are still many unanswered questions, and fans are constantly checking the news to see if there are any new updates regarding Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry’s decision to resign from their duties as senior royals.
Many people are wondering exactly what is going on behind palace doors, especially when it comes to family members such as Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Prince William. There is no doubt that they have a lot of work to do, as the details of the split get finalized.
While we know that Meghan and Prince Harry will be splitting their time between Canada and the United Kingdom — and they plan to become financially independent — a lot is still up in the air. We can only imagine the stress that the other royals are under as they try to figure things out, especially with so much speculation going on from fans and the news media.
In the middle of all the “Megxit” drama, Queen Elizabeth just gifted Prince William something special that has fans speculating she’s rewarding the future king for his loyalty to the royal family.
What do we know about “Megxit” so far?
It was early in January that Prince Harry and Meghan made the surprising announcement that they were stepping back as senior members of the royal family. The split comes at a time when things were anything but easy for the couple, as they have been under intense stress for quite a long time.
The British tabloids have been relentless, and Prince Harry and Meghan just seem to have had enough. So, what do we know about the new chapter of life that they are about to embark on?
Well, according to MSN, they will no longer be receiving funds from the Sovereign Grant. They will also have to pay back the $3 million dollars of taxpayer money that was used in the extensive renovations of their Windsor home.
In addition, all of Prince Harry and Meghan’s staff are being released from their positions. While they will still have their private patronages, we will no longer see Meghan and Prince Harry carrying out duties on behalf of the queen.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are giving up their royal titles
One of the most complicated details of “Megxit” is that Meghan and Prince Harry will no longer be known as “Their Royal Highnesses.” Although a royal title is still relatively new for Meghan, Prince Harry has had a title since the day that he was born.
According to BBC News, Prince Harry and Meghan are no longer entitled to use the “HRH” titles now that they are stepping back and no longer carrying out official engagements. This is definitely a major change in their lives as they choose to live life out of the royal spotlight and raise their son, Archie, in a quieter environment.

While millions of royal fans are still shocked by “Megxit,” many people know that we have to take into consideration that the rest of the royals are dealing with the shock as well. While they are surely doing what they can to support Meghan and Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth knows that things won’t be easy.
So, what special gift did she just give to Prince William in the midst of “Megxit”? Well, just as Prince Harry and Meghan are losing their titles, Prince William is gaining another one.
Us Weekly reports that the queen just gave her grandson the title of Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. This means that he will be representing her majesty to the Church of Scotland, and will carry out official duties.
Although Prince William is not the first one to hold this title, we can imagine that he is honored by what he has been given.
