Queen Elizabeth’s Daughter-in-Law Sophie Wessex to “help out” as Meghan Markle, Prince Harry step down

Published

A royal source shares that Sophie, Countess of Wessex, might play a more significant role in representing the royal family now that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped down.
Sophie is a “long-term favorite” of the Queen.

While we’ve all been focused on what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are going to do now that they’re leaving the royal family and moving to Canada, there’s another side of this transition to consider, aka what the royal family is going to do now that Meghan and Harry are stepping down.

Without two of their most popular senior royals, it stands to reason that there’s now some extra work that has to be spread among the current working royals, and it looks as though Queen Elizabeth’s daughter-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex, who’s married to Prince Edward, might be picking up some of the slack. A royal source tells The Sun:

“Sophie’s a long-term favorite of the Queen and has been singled out as a person the Palace would like to help ease the burden. She’s very popular with other senior royals like Charles and Camilla, and has proved to be extremely good at public engagements.”

The Palace declined to comment, so for now it remains to be seen who’s going to take on Harry and Meghan’s work. And for the record, it sounds like Harry was sad to leave behind some of his royal duties—in a speech addressing the royal exit he said:

What I want to make clear is we’re not walking away, and we certainly aren’t walking away from you. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible. I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am.
