The Duchess of Sussex will not be joining her husband Prince Harry for Prince Philip’s funeral, the Royal Palace announced.
According to local media outlets, a very pregnant Meghan Markle has been advised by her physicians to avoid making the 11-hour long flight towards the United Kingdom, with her husband by her side. Sources claim Harry will most likely travel to the UK on Monday, at the latest.
In addition, this will actually be the first time Harry has actually been seen in the public eye with his family, ever since he left the Commonwealth Service that took place at Westminister Abbey in March of 2020.
Meanwhile, Meghan Markle’s estranged dad, Thomas Markle, also went ahead and paid his condolences on the tragic demise of Prince Philip recently.
Inside sources confirmed today how Meghan Markle will not be in attendance at the funeral but her husband Harry will surely be in attendance.
Meghan has received advisories from her medical aboard about the dangers of taking an extended flight as she is heavily pregnant with her second child who is a girl. The baby is said to arrive in the early summertime. Therefore, she has opted to go with her physician’s advice and stay back.
Meanwhile, sources that were close to the royal couple mentioned how both Meghan and Harry were united during this period of immense grief with the royal family. But they also boldly added how Meghan had suffered a miscarriage previously and hence would have to take medical advice before making any decision of leaving the US for the UK.
In addition, the Sussexes have both faced immense criticism as they accused the Royal Family of indulging in racism and questioning them about the skin color of their child too. Meghan and Harry dropped many bombshells during their recent interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on CBS last month.
