Royal special in Saturday’s Daily Express: Read SEVEN pages of exclusive coverage

Daily Express has commissioned an unprecedented and detailed poll of the British public giving readers a finger on the pulse of the nation’s opinion on the Royal Family in 2020. Harry and Meghan’s incredible exit comes on top of a period of turmoil for the Queen following last year’s scandal of Prince Andrew’s links to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein who killed himself after convictions for a series of sex offences

Harry and Meghan then sent the world’s media into meltdown last month when the pair announced they were quitting roles as senior members of the Royal Family and aiming to become financially independent, in a very public move which came out of the blue and left Buckingham Palace fuming.

Fraught negotiations with the Queen followed before the monarch confirmed last Saturday evening in a statement Meghan and Harry would “step back from royal duties, including official military appointments”.

The couple also agreed to repay £2.4million of taxpayers money spent on refurbishing their Frogmore Cottage home.

The huge upheaval has drawn stark criticism from the public in what has quickly become a damage limitation exercise for Buckingham Palace.

But the historic breakaway may also open opportunities for new royals in 2020.

Tomorrow’s Daily Express has exclusive content including royal experts’ views, such as the Queen’s former spokesman Dickie Arbiter, on the current state of the royal family as well as the answers of what you, the Great British public, think about the chaos engulfing the palace.

Our exclusive survey saw Britons asked a variety of questions on the royals, allowing a unique insight into what the nation thinks about the monarchy.

We also look into the future of the royals without Harry and Meghan, as well as what’s next for the retiring royal couple and which family members should step up to fill the void in the Windsor’s hectic schedule.

There are also question marks over the future of the monarchy with growing calls for Prince Charles to step aside and let son Prince William wear the crown when the Queen finally leaves the throne.

All this and more will be studied in-depth in tomorrow’s unbeatable Daily Express.
