My royal Palms (about 30 feet tall) have fronds break off rather than shed. Then they hand for weeks before dropping. Why are they not shedding?

I suspect they are being broken by wind and they won't fall off until the base of the frond dies and loses its grip. I don't think there's much you can do except remove them as they hang there.
