In general, it is in the worst times that families become closer. This is what the British hoped for when Elizabeth II died. Two days after her disappearance on September 8, all eyes were on the outskirts of Windsor Castle. That day, what was the surprise of seeing Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton alongside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The two couples, side by side, had gathered to observe the tributes and the messages left by the admirers of the Crown in front of the gates of the royal residence. A reunion which, for many, marked the end of the quarrels between “fantastic Four“. It is not so, unfortunately.
Arthur Edwards, royal photographer, gave his opinion behind the scenes of this unexpected appearance with Piers Morgan. And according to him, no reconciliation is on the agenda. If Prince William is indeed at the origin of the surprise presence of Meghan Markle at their side, the new Prince of Wales made this request for a very specific reason: to prevent Meghan from stealing the show on the day of the state funeral of the Sovereign.
“Prince William is no stranger to the presence of Meghan Markle. He spoke with his brother and asked for a joint effort to be made“, said Arthur Edwards in remarks reported by The Sun. He pursues : “They did this because if Meghan had only appeared at the Queen’s official funeral, everyone would have been talking about her. King Charles III and all the others do not want this. She’s the queen and no one else.”
Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Prince William will therefore not share the tea time anytime soon. And the new Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are not the only ones to have a grudge against the parents of Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, who have remained in the United States for the moment. During her unexpected walkabout at Windsor Castle, Meghan Markle did not receive the welcome she might have expected. If she managed to shake a few hands during her visit, some people present preferred not to calculate it. And things are not likely to get better with the upcoming publication of Prince Harry’s memoirs… According to some experts, it should take place shortly after the Queen’s funeral. Case to follow!
