A duchess who was ultimately unwelcome? Last April, members of the British royal family gathered in Windsor to bid farewell to Prince Philip, who died at the age of 99. A solemn event, for which Prince Harry returned to the United Kingdom, for the first time since his move to Los Angeles and his shock interview with Oprah Winfrey. However, although married to Meghan Markle, the Duke of Sussex had made the trip on his own, reserving only one one-way trip to his homeland while waiting to see the unfolding of events, and this in the possibility of extending his stay.
However, faced with the icy reception given to him by some members of the royal family, Prince Harry did not linger in the country and quickly joined his wife, who remained in the United States because of her pregnancy. Pregnant with her second child, and near her term, the Duchess had been forbidden to travel, by order of her doctors. And this to the delight of some Windsors. As reported in an updated version of Finding Freedom, some were “quietly happy” that Meghan Markle could not make the trip, despite her efforts. As reported by The Independent, some people simply feared “the Duchess does not put on a show”, and “did not want a circus” on this day marked by mourning.
Meghan and Harry soon in court?
If the return of Prince Harry has been widely commented, that of Meghan Markle would surely have been more while she had a few months earlier accused the royal family of racism, especially against her son Archie. Words that greatly displeased Elizabeth II, who would have even asked her teams to learn about what the law provides for defamation. If for the moment no legal action has been taken, it could be that the queen waits for the memories of Prince Harry to step up to the niche, if by any chance this one were to take it personally to certain members of her family.
