It’s like even Queen Elizabeth II got fed up with royal family drama.
According to an upcoming book, The New Royal Family: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crownby royal expert Katie NichollThe late king is said to have told a friend that “she was exhausted from the mayhem” surrounding her. Prince Harry and Meghan Markledecided to say goodbye to royal life and the ensuing feud. A confidant shared that “she was heartbroken” over the film, adding that the Queen lamented when discussing the rift:
“I don’t know, I don’t care, and I don’t want to think about it anymore.”
As is known, the royal family has not been too pleased with the couple since they resigned as senior members. Everything from their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021, where they claimed that someone in the family made racist remarks about Archielet them the next conversation about the movie and a bombshell memoir coming soon from Harry – no wonder Queen Elizabeth is worn out. However, entertainment reporters and royalty Neil Sean declared in a YouTube video where a “very good source” said the former actress request to meet King Charles III “One on one” to try to “clear the air” of what happened. So perhaps the Queen’s wish for this bitter feud to end has been granted? Or at least, they are starting the process of ending.
Another source of her grief comes from the 96-year-old grandmother wanting to spend more time with her grandchildren, Archie and Lilibet, something that could very well prove difficult given the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s move across the pond to Montecito, California. And of course, their messy situation with their loved ones. Katie wrote in the book:
“It’s a source of sadness for the queen as she gets to see very little Archie and Lilibet and that Harry and Meghan were unable to join her for the weekend at Balmoral in August, when the queen usually hosts a ‘ sleep over’ for all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. “
Sadly, only Queen Elizabeth have seen two kids a few times before she passed away earlier this month. Prince Harry and Meghan had previously brought their young children to see the Queen when they arrived in London for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June. They have since spent more time together at Windsor Castle a day ago Lilibet’s first birthday on June 4. Despite some interactions, Harry expressed his happiness as the Queen was able to hug her “beloved grandchildren” in an emotional statement after her death:
“Madam, while this last parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first encounters – from my earliest childhood memories to Grandma, to meeting you for the first time as my commander-in-chief, to the first moment you met my beloved wife and hugged your beloved grandchildren. I cherish the times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You have missed a lot. “
It’s a difficult situation. But hopefully, the fans will try to make peace with each other in the future. React, longtime readers? Do you think this feud between the royals will come to an end? Let us know in the comments below.
