As every year, Queen Elizabeth II is preparing to spend her summer vacations at Balmoral Castle. If usually the monarch takes care to invite her relatives, this time, apparently she decided not to invite Meghan Markle and Harry.
Would they have reached the point of no return? After the Megxit, the multiple confidences of Meghan Markle and Harry on the British royal family and the upcoming release of the memoirs of the Duke of Sussex, it seems that Queen Elizabeth II needs a rest. To do this, the sovereign will go, as usual every summer, to Balmoral Castle.
A haven of peace and disconnection for the monarch, as stated by Duncan Larcombe, royal expert. “It’s where she can be the mother, grandmother and great-grandmother that she is,” he told Hello! magazine. However, if Queen Elizabeth II is used to going there with her relatives, this time she did not want to invite the Sussexes.
“If it wasn’t for the health crisis and all the drama that has happened with Harry and Meghan in recent months, they would certainly have been invited to Balmoral. And it would have allowed the queen to see Archie again and meet Lilibet,” assured the specialist. Still according to Duncan Larcombe, Prince Harry ended up “canceling the invitation because of his previous actions and public confidences”. The publication of the book of the Duke of Sussex may therefore revive tensions with the crown.
Prince Harry’s memoirs: dreaded confidences
Prince Harry has waited only a few months to deliver once again. In 2022, Meghan Markle‘s husband will release his memoirs including exclusive confidences about the man he has become over the years. A project that is not without worrying his entourage. “Harry and Meghan‘s former staff members are convinced that this book is written to settle scores and will probably include a lot of details about their time in the royal family,” a royal insider told the Daily Mail. So the next few months are likely to be very eventful across the Channel.
