Crisis talks at Buckingham Palace are expected to take “days” not “weeks” as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle work with The Queen to develop a “workable” plan

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are believed to be in talks with The Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge.

Reports come after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a shock announcement to step back as "senior members of the royal family" yesterday.
