Royal Family News: Palace Not Having the Conversation
“You’ve got the four Counsellors of State that are currently in place: Charles, William, Andrew and Harry,” said Myers, adding that if two of those counselors, Andrew and Harry, were no longer working under the Crown, and the other two were working abroad, “it just seems utterly bizarre that there has not been some movement to try and replace Harry and Andrew.”
He went on to say that The Palace was still “not relenting” and that they’re just not having that conversation. He added that he finds this decision to be “absolutely extraordinary.”
