LONDON — Only one story was dominating Britain’s newspaper front pages Thursday morning. And yes, it has been given a name: Megxit.

According to the British tabloids that have long been a problem for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Queen Elizabeth II is “sad,” Prince Charles is “furious,” and the couple’s shock announcement that they were distancing themselves from the royal family has sparked “civil war” in Britain.

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Harry and Meghan announced that they would be “stepping back” from their roles as senior royals and splitting their time between Britain and North America. The two also declared that they wanted to become “financially independent” and provide their son, Archie-Harrison, with a more balanced life.

The Guardian: The decision by Prince Harry and Meghan to distance themselves from the royal family has captured every front page today, with mentions of royal bombshells and many asking why the Queen was not consulted about the announcement.

The Sun gives us the Twitter hashtag headline for the day with “Megxit”, and says the Queen is upset but princes Charles and William are “incandescent with rage”. It claims its palace bombshell as an exclusive and is practically the only paper that does not feature a picture of the couple looking happy together.

Getting away from the British tabloids by moving to another country will probably save their marriage, so good for them. As for the Queen's and Prince Charles' reactions, I'm willing to bet they are highly exaggerated, and probably not directed at the couple so much as at the press for driving the couple away.

LONDON — Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, flew to Canada following the bombshell announcement that she and her husband, Prince Harry, are "stepping back" from royal duties, prompting intensified speculation that the couple will make Canada their part-time home.

A Buckingham Palace official confirmed reports that Meghan had returned to Canada — the latest act in a drama that the British press has dubbed “Meg-xit.”

Meanwhile, Harry remained in Britain, where he was reportedly in deep discussions with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II; his father, Prince Charles; and his brother, Prince William, about the couple’s future role.

Or, as the tabloid Daily Mail put it: “Queen’s crisis talks with Harry: Duke of Sussex has been locked in four-way call with Her Majesty in Sandringham and Prince Charles in Scotland as they try to avert all out royal war.”
