Ever since their wedding in May, royal fans are eagerly awaiting the announcement that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting. But, in a twist, according to royal experts say that Meghan and Harry’s won’t have full Custody over their children like an average parent would.
Reportedly, Meghan and Harry can’t have full custody of their kids, which yeah, very confusing. Royal expert Marlene Koenig said,”The sovereign has legal custody of the minor grandchildren.” Apparently, this bizarre rule dates back to the 1700s when King George I decided he wanted full control over his grandkids.
“This goes back to King George I, and the law’s never been changed,” Marlene said. “He did it because he had a very poor relationship with his son, the future King George II, so they had this law passed that meant the King was the guardian of his grandchildren.”
And in 1993, Constitutional expert Michael L. Nash said, “Queen has the last word in the custody upbringing, education and even the right of abode of the princes, even during the lifetime of their father, Prince Charles. As for their mother, the Princess of Wales, she says is a matter of discretion and negotiation.”
The law is still upheld today, but royal doesn’t give it much attention, as it is very unlikely that the Queen would step in and exercise complete control over her grandchildren’s lives.
