2020年,英国脱欧(Brexit)还没脱完,就先上演了一出“梅脱”(Megxit)。

 

 

上周,哈里和梅根夫妇突然官宣将要退出王室“单过”,不仅让王室措手不及,也震惊了英国上下乃至全球。(戳这里回顾)

 

 

当地时间13日,为了应对突如其来的“梅脱危机”,英国女王“破天荒”召开了个紧急家庭会议,商量后续处理事宜。

 

会议地点是女王在英格兰诺福克郡(Norfolk)的府邸——桑德林汉姆庄园(Sandringham Estate)。女王驾车前来,其他参会成员只有查尔斯、威廉以及哈里。

 

 

早前,对于哈里梅根小两口为啥打算“单过”,英国媒体没少八卦猜测。有的称威廉和哈里兄弟俩早就闹翻了,有的传梅根受威廉凯特排挤。

 

 

据CNN报道,就在13日王室家庭会议前夕,威廉和哈里给CNN发了一份“联合声明”,驳斥当日英媒的一篇炒作“兄弟不和”的报道。

 

 

In a joint statement sent to CNN, Princes William and Harry have denied a UK newspaper story alleging that a rift in the royal family was caused by William's "bullying attitude."

 

CNN报道中提及的这篇 “兄弟不和”的英媒文章来自《泰晤士报》,该文称哈里梅根是被威廉“欺凌的态度”“逼走的”,还说兄弟俩闹翻是因为“梅根经常受到威廉的排挤”,“哈里夫妇一直受欺负”。

 

 

It followed a story in the Times of London on Monday, reporting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan and Harry, felt "pushed away" by William's "bullying attitude." The article suggested the brothers "fell out because William wasn't friendly towards Meghan" and that the Sussexes were "constantly being bullied."

 

 

无论外界有什么猜测,兄弟俩的联合声明也算是给接下来的家庭会议做铺垫了。

 

13日下午,紧急家庭会议结束后,王室发表了女王的声明。这份声明也是女王第一次正式就“梅脱”给出官方回应。她表示已经与哈里和梅根就他们的未来进行了“建设性”会谈,支持他们“开始新生活” ↓↓↓

 

声明中,女王表示同意哈里梅根在过渡期间于英国和加拿大两地居住。但由于“问题复杂”,最终决定将在未来数日内做出

 

 

After a crisis meeting of senior royals at the Queen's Sandringham estate north of London, the Queen said she had agreed that Prince Harry and Meghan could split their time between the UK and Canada but that "complex matters" would have to be resolved. The monarch said she had ordered final plans to be drawn up in the next few days.

 

声明全文如下↓↓↓

Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family.

今天,我们全家就我的孙子和他们一家的未来进行了富有建设性的讨论。

 

My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.

我和我的家人都全力支持哈里和梅根作为年轻的家庭想要创造全新生活的愿望。尽管我们希望他们继续担任王室的全职工作,但我们尊重并理解他们的心愿——希望过上更加独立的生活,同时仍然是家族中重要的一部分。

 

Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.

哈里和梅根已经明确表示,他们不想在即将开始的新生活中依赖公共资金支持。

 

It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.

因此我们已经达成共识,在接下来的过渡期,萨塞克斯公爵夫妇将会在加拿大和英国生活。

 

These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.

有些复杂问题需要我们全家共同解决,接下来还有许多的工作要做,但我已经要求在未来几天之内做出最终决定。

 

虽然这只是一份初步性的声明,但也立刻让英国媒体炸了锅。

 

不少都在心疼女王,比如《镜报》的标题“我想你留下,但也给你自由”

 

《每日电讯报》写的则是“高尚的女王准许了哈里的愿望”……

 

 

BBC则分析称,这是份非常“坦诚的、非正式的、近乎私人的”女王声明。

 

This is a remarkably candid and informal, almost personal, statement from the Queen.

 

文章写道,女王显然对哈里和梅根的举动感到遗憾,她更希望他们能够继续担任目前的角色。

 

Her regret over Harry and Meghan's move is obvious - she would have preferred them to stay in their current roles.

 

但她也明确表示,他们仍然是王室成员。这对夫妇更加独立的同时,他们将依旧受到王室重视。

 

But she also makes clear that they are still royals and that they will be valued in the family as they become a more independent couple.

 

此外,还有很多问题还尚待解决。包括哈里梅根未来的王室角色与其他王室成员的关系谁将为他们的哪些活动买单(女王说,不会是纳税人),以及哈里和梅根将如何自力更生

 

There are buckets of questions outstanding — on their future royal role, their relationship with the rest of the Palace, on who will pay what (not, the Queen says, the taxpayer), and on how Harry and Meghan will support themselves.

 

 

国外“吃瓜群众”对此展开了一波激烈的讨论,有网友建议取消哈里“殿下”的称号:

“如果他们的心已经不在王室了,那是可以离开啊。但是离开的时候应该放弃所有与身份相关的特权,不能脚踏两只船,一边还继续享受王室身份的加持。建议取消哈里‘殿下’的称号。”

 

有网友跟英媒一样,表示“心疼女王:

“心疼女王。她不该受到如此的对待。”

 

当然,也有网友站队哈里梅根,支持他们“分家”:

“太好了。让哈里梅根做他们想做的事儿。这是他们应得的!”

 

还有人认为在这件事上,英国网友很“双标”:

“你们英国人老说烦透了王室拿纳税人的钱,现在某些王室成员选择不这么去做了,你们又生气?我祝福他们!”

 

正如上面这位网友说的,最让英国纳税人关心的恐怕就是“钱”这个问题了。

 

BBC就写了一篇:《哈里和梅根:他们的钱从哪儿来?

 

据官方资料和公开报道,哈里王子夫妇的收入,5%来自于主权基金(the Sovereign Grant)95%来自于父亲查尔斯王子的资助

 

 

查尔斯王子的收入则来自于他名下拥有的康沃尔公爵领地(the Duchy of Cornwall),由各类产业和投资项目组成,保障英国王室的稳定收入。

 

根据2018-2019年的公开财政报告,去年查尔斯王储的领地挣了2160万英镑。这部分收入用于资助公众以及查尔斯和他两个儿子的私人和慈善活动。

 

 

The couple say that about 95% of their income comes from the Prince of Wales. He pays for the public duties of Prince Harry and Meghan, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and some of their private costs.

 

The money comes from Prince Charles's income from the Duchy of Cornwall, a vast portfolio of property and financial investments, which brought in £21.6m last year. This revenue is used to "fund the public, private and charitable activities of The Duke and his children".

 

In addition, about 5% of the Sussexes' income comes from the Sovereign Grant, according to their website. 

 

此外,哈里梅根夫妻俩自己也有一些“家底”

 

 

BBC报道称,威廉和哈里王子从母亲戴安娜王妃那里,总共继承了1300万英镑。此外,据BBC王室事务记者透露,哈里还从他的曾祖母,也就是女王的母亲那里继承了几百万英镑的遗产。

 

 

Both the duke and duchess have considerable personal wealth. Princes William and Harry received the bulk of the £13m fortune left by their mother Princess Diana. Prince Harry is also thought to have been left millions of pounds by his great-grandmother, the Queen Mother, says BBC royal correspondent Nick Witchell.

 

而梅根在嫁入王室前,拍了多年的电视剧。拍《金装律师》期间,她的一集片酬就有近4万英镑。

 

 

加上她还运营过自己的博客,为加拿大某品牌搞过跨界设计。

 

 

两人的钱加起来,妥妥的千万富豪了。

 

 

During her acting career, the Duchess of Sussex earned a reported payment of £38,300 per episode for the legal drama Suits.

 

She also ran a lifestyle blog, and designed her own fashion line for a Canadian brand.

 

不过,他们有一些开销是另算的,一定比例来自于纳税人,比如安保费用。

 

 

此外,俩人的婚礼也花了纳税人的钱。

 

 

Then there's the towering security costs covered by the British taxpayer. These are some of the complex matters that the royal staff will try to thrash out in the coming days.

 

从女王13日发表的声明来看,哈里梅根实际上还有多大比例的开销要用到公众资金,以及这个小家庭未来的“财政来源”,尚未最后敲定。

 

 

不过,女王声明的最后一句也给解决这事划了一个“最后期限”:未来几天内

 

说起来,月底1月31日正好是英国“脱欧”的大限……

 

“脱欧”跟“梅脱”最终结局如何?我们只有再等等看了。
