As there are no links in your comment, here’s the tweets.

https://twitter.com/queenscomtrust/s...157056001?s=21

https://twitter.com/queenscomtrust/s...776241156?s=21

“Young people are vital voices in the fight against injustice and racism around the world. As a global community of young leaders we stand together in pursuit of fairness and a better way forward.

Silence is not an option.

We all have the power to effect positive change.

It is time to speak up and speak out. Time to have uncomfortable conversations with ourselves and with others. Time to educate ourselves and unlearn.

Time to come together and build a better future as one.”

Who controls their twitter account? Is this really comment by The Queen & the duke & duchess? I presume not.

Why did the Queen allow the Sussex to keep their position in the Queens CommonWealth Trust? isn't that part of the royal work that the queen assumed they would do and thats the reason why she gave it to them. Since they are no longer working royals she should have made them step down from it.

I would be shocked the statement had anything to do with the Royals. The situation is extremely politically charged and I’m sure the BRF wants to keep out of it

I'd guess the employees of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust are posting on this account. There is no indication either the Queen or the Sussexes had anything to do with the tweets, it was something added by the poster. On Twitter looks like that:

Tbh, it doesn't make sense to me either, but I'm guessing the Queen had her reasons, whatever they might be.

i cant think of any good reason why she would let them stay on. i guess we can put this in the category of the queen making decisions based on emotion instead of her brain. not a good look.

You can put it in that category, but I doubt that many others would.

Harry has now merged two organisations linked with his longterm interest in veterans mental and physical health, the Endeavour Fund and Invictus Games Foundation, away from the Royal Foundation which was originally begun by him and his brother. Hoping to hear more about this in the future.

Sentebale charity funds rose by £4 million pounds in 2019.

I think it is possible that the queen hopes/hoped that Meg and harry would return in a year, so she didn't want to completely cut them off from Royal work.. which I think IS probably her feelings as a grandmother getting the better fo her common sense. I don't think they'll be back...

The Queen's Commonwealth Trust is just named as such and has nothing to do with the Commonwealth. I think that is the reason H&M kept their roles because it does not include any representation on behalf of the Queen in any capacity

You do know that’s entirely wrong don’t you?

“The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust is a growing network of young changemakers across the Commonwealth..... We use our network, platform and resources, built and shaped together with young people, to demonstrate the leadership, energy and optimism of young people across the Commonwealth and their enormous potential to create a better future for everyone.”

It has EVERYTHING to do with the commonwealth.

The Queen is Patron of The Queens Commonwealth Trust.

The Queen and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex literally had an engagement together to meet Young Leaders of Commonwealth nations.

i have to disagree - the queen is not stupid and knows there is no easy way back in for them. the public will not forget. if they decided to come back as if nothing had happened, i can see the public outrage that will follow.

that, and i don't think meghan has any intention of coming back. and because of that, harry has no intention of coming back either. but i think even if they don't want to be part of the BRF, they will struggle to find a way to do work - both professional work to earn the money they so desired and charities work - in their current position.

I think the queen and Chalres may still hope. They have a shortage of royal workers due to the end of Andrew's working life and the 2 Sussexes leaving at the same time. I agree that Meg has no desire to come back, but if they can't make money in the US, she may consider it. I agree that they are not likely to be welcomed by the public...

It just doesn't make any sense. They don't even live in the Commonwealth anymore. Where is the logic of the Windsors.

Logically looking at this, three people have gone from working for the family "Firm" representing HM, The Queen. Andrew has effectively been retired from performing any kind of public duties and most (if not all) of his private patronages have dumped him.

Should the Sussexes return like the prodigal son to the fold of the family "Firm" (which I do believe is very unlikely at all), there will always be the niggling thought in the back of people's minds that if they've walked away before, they very well could walk away again should they experience displeasure in how things are.

There is a statement that says "You can't go home again. You can't truly go back to a place you once lived because so much will have changed since you left that it is not the same place anymore." and I think this applies to this situation.

What does it matter exactly?

It was very clear that Henry and Meghan would keep their patronages, and location isn't an issue right now considering none of the royal family can take part in in person events.

Considering they've both built up a relationship with QCT, it wouldn't make sense to take it away and hand it to another royal that has had nothing to do with the organisation.

What doesn't make sense? They can return to the UK... the recent arrangement was that the set up of them leaving would be reiviewed in a year.

yes of course the public who aren't that enamoured of them, will probably (those who think about them) not be too happy with the idea of them returning, in case they prove ready to leave again. but the queen and Charles will probably hold onto the hope that if they return they will be ready to settle down and (if required for royal duty) be reliable. Im sure on a personal level, Charles wants his son back. and his grandson... and Meghan.. and on a business level. as we've pointed out the RF has lost 3 of its workers, when things get back to some kind of normal that is quite a few people to lose..and the Q and Charles may well feel that they would like to have them back to return to their work. Even if they don't return to work, the RF would problaby wish they were back in the UK...
