• Queen Elizabeth could demand Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to return to London
  • The palace and the Sussexes will be reviewing the terms of their agreement within a year
  • The Queen will keep a watchful eye at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Queen Elizabeth is putting her foot down following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to quit the royal family. Even though she gave the royal couple her blessing to follow their heart's desire, new reports claimed that the monarch has some serious conditions.

Last week, a statement from the palace confirmed that the terms of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s exit are not yet final. After a year, the palace will review if the terms will be both beneficial to the Sussexes and The Firm.

Now, a source told Closer Weekly that the Queen could also demand Prince Harry and Markle to return to London if she feels that the terms are not beneficial for all parties.

Harry and Meghan’s decision to move to North America will be reviewed by the Queen in a year. She could easily demand that they return to London if things don’t run smoothly so they need to be on their best behavior and avoid doing anything that could upset her over the next 12 months. She’s keeping a watchful eye over them,” the source said.

The Queen has also banned Prince Harry and Markle from using the Sussex Royal brand after they are officially out of The Firm. However, it is possible for the couple to continue using Sussex since this will still be their surname.

Prince Harry and Markle have been living a quiet life in Canada with their 9-month-old son, Archie. Even though they are no longer considered as senior members of the royal family, they revealed on their website that they would still need security staff for themselves and their son.

“It is agreed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to require effective security to protect them and their son. This is based on the Duke’s public profile by virtue of being born into the royal family, his military service, the Duchess’ own independent profile, and the shared threat and risk level documented specifically over the last few years,” the statement read.
