After Prince Philip’s funeral on April 17, 2021, the princes Harry, William saw each other in the privacy of the cameras. Father and son then chatted peacefully for over two hours. These are the first exchanges they have had after almost a year. Recall that the discord between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with the royal family was only greater after the shock interview of the couple Harry and Meghan to Oprah Winfrey. Following the peaceful discussion between Prince Charles and Princes Harry and William, the idea of an alleged family summit meeting was born.
Yet royal biographer Ingrid Seward says this possibility must be ruled out. “The grieving monarch, who has bid her husband Prince Philip a final farewell, hates confrontation and only wants to talk about dogs or horses right now,” she told The Times.
“The queen doesn’t like confrontations”
Ingrid Seward’s statement came after reports of Prince Harry’s delayed departure for Los Angeles. The Duke of Sussex could delay his trip to attend the Queen’s 95th birthday this Wednesday April 21. Ingrid maintains that it is highly unlikely that any family summit meeting will take place this week. “I remember Fergie telling me it took them three weeks to try to get her to talk about the divorce. She kept saying ‘Oh I have to walk the dogs’,” she said. keep on going.
It should also be recalled that Her Majesty had already convened a summit meeting at the Sandringham estate last year to settle the issue of Megxit. A situation induced by the departure of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the face of their role as eminent members of the royal family.
