On February 6, Queen Elizabeth II, 95, supported the idea of Camilla Parker Bowles, 74, taking the title of queen consort. This when her husband, Prince Charles, 73, will sit on the throne. According to Daily Star sources, Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan Markle, 40, were said to have been in shock upon hearing the news. Moreover, a source close to the Sussexes says that this news has widened the gap between the royal couple and the future queen consort, according to the Daily Star.
That same source told Heat that there was mutual bad feeling between Camilla Parker Bowles and the Sussexes. “I don’t think we’ll see them bowing to Camilla or referring to her in royal terms,” according to the insider. For their part, Prince William, 39, and Kate Middleton, 40, welcomed this news. The same source at Heat also claims that the relationship between Prince Harry and his stepmother is said to be very strained. Moreover, the Duke of Sussex would shed light on this delicate relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles in his next memoir planned for this year.
Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex did not celebrate the news
After Queen Elizabeth II of England, 95, made a statement in honor of Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex did not congratulate his mother-in-law. On the contrary, the husband of Meghan Markle praised his late mother in return. It was during a virtual call to raise awareness about HIV testing that Archie and Lilibet’s father made a statement to rugby legend Gareth Thomas. Prince Harry notably declared that he felt obliged to continue the work of Lady Diana. “I can never replace her,” Prince Harry said.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are still planning to return to the UK in June to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, according to the Daily Star. If so, it will be the first time Meghan Markle has returned to the kingdom since leaving for California in early 2020.
