Ever since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were leaving the Royal family, or what they call it ‘the Firm’, many thought that would be their last connection to the family. Yet in the recent interview with Oprah, the couple made some serious accusations calling the Royal family racists.
People and the news were eager to find out who was the one to say it, and some were even accusing the late Prince. The couple remained silent on the issue, and we are sure the secret will be kept, but that made even greater space than it was created before.
With the death of Prince Phillip, many are hoping the gap between the family and the Sussexes will decrease, but is that even possible?
Harry confirmed that he will fly from the U.S. to his grandfather’s funeral, but he will be coming alone. It was said that doctors advised Meghan to stay in the U.S., as she is late in her pregnancy and it would be risky for her to fly that long. Also, the issue that was created might bring the stress level up high, which would also be bad for her.
Unfortunately, the Queen and the family will not see Archie either. As it was stated, the young Archie will remain with his mother in California. This must have devastated the already grieving Queen, and the rest of the Royal family, as they haven’t seen Archie ever since he was a baby.
The members of the Royal family will walk behind the coffin all together, and only thirty people will be allowed at the service, due to pandemic. This small ceremony will be the opportunity for the members to talk through the issues and hopefully it will all have a positive outcome.
Ex-PM Sir John Major in the interview he made for BBC said he hopes it will be possible for the family to ‘mend the rift’ as they are bonded with grief over the passing of the Prince.
Even though many are hoping they will come in peace with one another during the ceremony and grieving period, the general public had something to say. As many people went to lay flowers in front of Windsor Castle, some went online to share some thoughts and comments about Meghan’s absence from the funeral.
There were many of those who are still having some hard feelings for Meghan ever since the interview with Oprah aired. They think she is just afraid and ashamed to come so she is using her pregnancy as an excuse.
I’m sure the British people won’t mind Meghan Markle missing the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, not one bit.
It is after all a solemn respectful occasion.
Not a film set.

So #MeghanMarkle has been told not to travel for the funeral? She was ok to travel for a baby shower and God knows what else last time around … Will Archie be allowed to come and see his family ?

In the latest episode of ‘It’s all about Meghan’, MM conducts a risk assessment of how safe it will be for her to take a private jet to a funeral she’s not invited to…. #MeghanMarkle

As much as I’m for the healing of family rifts. I have to say that Prince Harry, should be last in any procession & at the back of the church. The damage that little runt & his money grabbing tart have done to the Royal Family & reputation of the British people is unforgivable.

Today just makes the Prince Harry/Meghan interview even more galling.
They went ahead with it knowing he was 99 years old & in hospital.
They have no shame whatsoever.

There are also those who came in defense of the Duchess.
Don’t blame her. She was treated horribly by the British press and citizens. Racism is alive and it’s time to do away with the monarchy. #MeghanMarkle

Dear Media #MeghanMarkle is very pregnant. She would be foolish to travel to the UK in a global pandemic that is spiking in the UK even for a funeral. Leave her alone. #PrincePhillip

Two pieces Daily Mail columnists can have ready to go right now:
1. Why Meghan Markle’s presence at the funeral is an insult, designed to overshadow a somber occasion.
2. Why Meghan Markle’s absence from the funeral, is an insult, designed to overshadow a somber occasion.

The funeral of the late Prince Philip will take place on Saturday 17 April 2023 at 3pm in St George’s Chapel, Windsor. Hopefully, things will calm down by that time.
The Queen “as always” is “thinking of others before herself” following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, say Earl and Countess of Wessex
