According to “Independent” in the new chapter “Finding Freedom” Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand revealed the backstage of Harry’s trip to London for his grandfather’s funeral. Prince Philip passed away on April 9, 2021 at the age of 99 after battling a disease.
The Queen lost her patience with her grandson and his wife. Meghan and Harry will not like it
The funeral ceremony for the husband of Queen Elizabeth II was modest. Only the closest family members participated in it. Meghan Markle did not take part in it. The duchess was then in an advanced state of pregnancy, and the doctor decided that the flight lasting many hours was too risky, so he did not allow the trip.
Meghan Markle was not at Filip’s funeral. The royal family pleased that
The authors of “Finding Freedom” claim that Meghan’s absence pleased some of her husband’s family members. They allegedly took the news with “quiet satisfaction” as they “did not want the circus”. They were also afraid that Meghan would “do a spectacle”.
The new version of Finding Freedom also describes the circumstances of the interview Harry and Meghan gave to Opra Winfrey. The authors of the book found out, inter alia, that the couple initially intended to disclose the identity of a family member whom Markle accused of racism. However, they decided not to do so.
Meghan taunted Elizabeth II? The royal expert is in no doubt
The interview with the American television queen was broadcast just weeks before the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. Although the Duke and Duchess of Sussex knew what condition Philip was in, they did not postpone the issue. This decision was criticized by the media in the UK and the local public. The couple were accused of disrespect and heartlessness.
Dissatisfaction with Meghan and Harry’s “public washing of dirt” was evident on the faces of some members of the royal family at Philip’s funeral. The media described, among others the reaction of Princess Anne, who was considered the prince’s favorite child. When her nephew arrived at the ceremony, she would eloquently ignore him. (Tseo / hs)
