Sandy Lange supports royal couple's decision to live in Canada

Amid the recent royal "bombshell" involving Meghan Markle and husband Prince Harry, a self-described "royalist" from Angaston is among those who support their recent decision.

Sandy Lange's royal treatment materialised last week when the couple made world headlines announcing their decision to step back as "senior" royals.

According to global news sources, the royals, who became first-time parents to son Archie in May last, plan to become financially independent and will live in Canada.

"It's the right move," Mrs Lange shared.

"They are only young so let them live their life," she added.

Mrs Lange, 71, explains her mix of reasoning involves Harry not directly in line to the throne and events associated with the death of his mother.

"They (Princes William and Harry) were just little boys when Diana died and I think he (Prince Harry) is doing his best to protect his young family - and why shouldn't he," she said.

Mrs Lange, an above the knee amputee, happened to meet the couple face-to-face in Sydney on October 16, 2018 during their visit to Australia as part of The Invictus Games.

It was actually a spur of the moment greeting after she and daughter Kelly were on holidays and their whale watching cruise was cancelled.

The royal follower was then whisked in her wheelchair by Kelly to a prime viewing spot near the Sydney Opera House.

At the time she had shared how the couple were extremely polite and was further impressed how they thanked everyone they met.

"I just said 'welcome' because I didn't want to hold them up," she said.

"They are beautiful people and I loved how he (Prince Harry) genuinely held my hand in his to greet me.

Meanwhile, Mrs Lange a grandmother to seven, also shared how she also feels for the Queen.

"I understand she must be upset and probably wishes this hadn't have happened but at the end of the day it's their choice," she added.

Mrs Lange has followed the royals since a young girl.

While her parents weren't "royalists as such" she believes her fascination for the family was sparked from her mother, who was born in India due to her father being a member of the British Army which controlled India.

While she understands younger generations may not be royal fans, she does share her love with her two daughters.

Her royal watching also extends to recent television series including The Crown which she says is quality viewing.
