The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been fired by the Queen after Sophie, Countess of Wessex, got hold of secrets about their alleged scam to steal royal money.

Meghan Markle reportedly turned pale when she heard the news, according to a source close to the couple. The source said that Meghan was “devastated” and “couldn’t believe” that the Queen would take such drastic action.

The couple’s alleged scam involved using their royal titles to secure lucrative deals, even though they had stepped back from royal duties. They are also accused of trying to profit from their royal connections by selling stories to the media.

Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, is said to have been instrumental in exposing the Sussexes’ alleged scam. She is a close confidante of the Queen and is said to have been “deeply concerned” about the couple’s behavior.

The Queen is said to have been “appalled” by the Sussexes’ alleged actions and decided to fire them in order to protect the monarchy. The decision is a major blow to the couple, who have been struggling to maintain their popularity since they stepped back from royal duties in 2020.

It is unclear what the future holds for the Sussexes, but they are likely to face a number of challenges in the months and years to come. They will no longer have access to royal funding and will have to find a way to support themselves financially. They will also have to contend with the negative publicity surrounding their alleged scam.
