It’s a rare occasion when any member of the royal family addresses Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to resign. However, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, is finally speaking out about the subject.
Yep. In a new interview with The Sunday Times, the 55-year-old royal opened up about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, specifically how she tried to help the couple become accustomed to their new life.
“We all try to help any new member of the family,” Sophie said. “Remember I’d had five years to adjust, and for our six-month engagement I was even staying in Buckingham Palace," she said of her own experience. "Not that you necessarily know how it will pan out.”
As far as the workload goes, Prince Edward’s wife also addressed whether other working royals have been picking up their duties.
"We've all got our own little portfolios," she continued. "I don’t see anything changing, but if we’re asked to do more…I don’t know because it hasn’t really happened...I am pretty busy already, so I’m not sure how much more I can do. There are only so many hours in the day. People may pay more attention to what I am doing, but I remain as busy as I have ever been.”
In the end, Queen Elizabeth’s daughter-in-law wants nothing but the best for Harry, Meghan and 1-year-old Archie.
