Harry and Meghan Leave the Royal Family – level 1

16-01-2020 07:00

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan decide to stop their activity in the Royal Family. They say that they want to start working. However, they plan to work with Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and other people.

Harry and Meghan want to divide their time between the United Kingdom and North America. They want to start new projects. They want to focus on charity.

They also say that they need more space. The British tabloids write a lot about Meghan. The couple is not happy about it. Harry remembers the situation with his mother, Princess Diana, and the tabloids. She dies because journalists follow her everywhere.

The Royal Family says that they understand why Harry and Meghan want to change their lives. They must discuss everything. They must solve this difficult situation.

Difficult words: divide (to separate), charity (the activity to help people who need money, food or health care), space (time and distance from other people), tabloid (a type of newspaper that has many pictures and short, simple articles that are mainly about crime, disasters and famous people).
