Prince Harry ‘laughed out loud’ when asked how chats over royal future are going01/16/2020
Prince Harry 'laughed out loud' when asked how discussions about his future role in the Royal Family are going, it has been claimed.
The Duke of Sussex attended his first official engagement since announcing that he and Meghan Markle are stepping back from their senior roles and plan to split their time between the UK and Canada.
Harry hosted the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draws at Buckingham Palace, meeting with representatives from all 21 nations taking part in the tournament before watching children from a local school play.
The media were invited to the engagement and tried to ask him about how discussions with the Queen, Charles, William and other royal figures are progressing.
He did not their answer, and reportedly laughed when the first question was shouted out.
The Express's royal correspondent Richard Palmer tweeted: " Prince Harry ignored questions from the media about how discussions are progressing on his and Meghan’s future.
"He had his back to us by then but I am told by a colleague on the other side that Harry laughed out loud when the first question was asked.
Last week the Queen summoned Harry to crisis talks at Sandringham with his father and older brother.
Meghan, who is back in Canada with the couple's son Archie, was expected to dial in but didn't as the couple reportedly didn't think it was necessary.
The Queen later released a statement saying they had "very constructive discussions".
She said that while she wished Meghan and Harry would remain in their current positions, she "respects and understands" their decision to want a more private life.
But she also admitted that many of the "complex matters" had not yet been resolved, saying she had asked her family to reach final decisions about certain things in the "coming days".
Meghan and Harry reportedly announced their decision without consulting any other members of the Firm, with Charles and William only being sent a copy of their statement 10 minutes before it went live.
