Prince Harry “met his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, in private, at least twice before leaving for the United States “. He revealed it to Bazaar.com Omid Scoobie, friend of Meghan Markle as well as co-author of Finding Freedom, the Sussex biography. Scoobie’s statements seem to want to dismiss the idea that Harry acted as a icy and distant nephew. Everyone thought that Charles and Diana’s second son arrived in London on April 12 for his grandfather’s funeral Filippo, would have stayed at least until Wednesday 21 April, the day on which the sovereign has turned 95. Saddest birthday ever, the first without her husband.
Harry, on the other hand, had already landed in the States on April 20 to be reunited with his wife Meghan Markle pregnant and with the firstborn Archie. A further disgrace to His Majesty, already tried so much for the death of his wife? Scoobie assures no: “Harry’s love and respect for his grandmother are unshakable».
What about Elizabeth’s love and respect for Harry? The second son of Charles and Diana was once portrayed as the Queen’s favorite grandson. But the arrival of Meghan Markle, and the Megxit, would change everything. Already a year ago it was said that the relationship between grandmother and granddaughter was seriously flawed, as was the esteem of the sovereign (“Elizabeth thinks Harry is acting like a kid»). L’shock interview to Oprah Winfrey with whom Harry and Meghan Markle tore the royal family apart, accusing her of racism, it certainly hasn’t made things better. For His Majesty, who has always used to wash the (royal) dirty clothes in the family, the accusations via TV of his nephew were certainly a blow to the heart.
But now, according to Scoobie, that’s not the point: “Harry went to London for honor grandfather and support his grandmother and relatives. The outstanding issues were not addressed for long. The family simply put aside their tensions to focus on what really mattered. ‘ Harry is back in London next July, when it will be inaugurated at Kensington Palace the statue of mum Diana. To find out if the recent meetings with the queen, as well as the talks with William and Charles after Philip’s funeral, have sown some seeds capable of restoring peace in the family, we just have to wait a few months.
