Queen Elizabeth II and senior royals have called on aides to find a “workable solution” to the future of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle in the royal family within “days, not weeks,” UK media reported Thursday.

The domestic Press Association and Sky News television both quoted an unnamed Buckingham Palace source saying that the monarch, and princes Charles and William wanted answers as soon as possible.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan will step back as senior members of the royal family and spend more time in North America, the couple said in a historic statement on Wednesday.

The announcement sent shock waves through the royal family as neither Queen Elizabeth nor Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, had been consulted on the announcement, made on Instagram.
