Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry were among the family members that traveled to be with the Queen in Balmoral, Scotland, where she passed away peacefully on Thursday.
Meghan Markle, Harry’s wife, chose to remain in London even after the Palace announced the Queen’s passing.
The Sussex spokesman first said that the pair was going to Scotland to be with the Queen after learning she was being watched over by doctors, but a source subsequently confirmed that only Harry had made the journey. Omid Scobie, a royal correspondent, tweeted that Meghan was still in London.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex canceled their planned plans to present at the WellChild Awards in response to the Queen’s health announcement.
Additionally, Kate Middleton skipped the trip to Balmoral in favor of remaining in Windsor to look after her and William’s three children. Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis’ first day at Lambrook School ended this afternoon, and Kate was seen driving away to pick them up.
Given the family’s right to privacy, the precise cause of Meghan’s absence was not disclosed, but if she had, it would have been a very unusual reunion between her, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Prince Charles under the most trying of circumstances.
The Queen and Meghan and Harry are great friends, and the couple named their baby Lilibet after the monarch. Harry said that he and his grandma “had a really great bond” in an April interview with The Today Show. We discuss topics she is unable to discuss with anybody else.
The relationship between Meghan and Harry and the rest of the royal family is a little tense, particularly in light of what they revealed in their March 2021 Oprah interview about their experiences as senior working family members.
Meghan claimed that she is still working on forgiving the royal family for all that occurred while she and Harry were serving the royal institution.
