The Queen wants to meet her great-grandkids. Last week, it was reported that Prince Harry has a planned to fled UK in September with his wife, Meghan Markle, and possibly with kids, some thought that it is the couple’s campaign against the royal family that had cooled.
Now, New Idea can solely disclose that the Harry and Meghan’s trip – below the appearance of rejoicing the new Princess Diana statue at Kensington Palace when the UK’s COVID-19 protocols are raised – is the consequence of a new writ from the Queen.
Earlier this month for the statue unveiling, the 95-year-old monarch observed visiting her grandson when he was in Windsor. “It wasn’t only a friendly visit, despite everyone trying to make it so,” explains our royal insider.
“Her Majesty told Harry in no uncertain terms that he and Meghan were humiliating the family, but also themselves, by constantly sounding off about the monarchy and the royals and then pulling bizarre stunts like naming their newborn daughter after her.
“The Queen is understandably furious, but she also can’t stand Harry embarrassing himself by misfiring insults from halfway around the world at the institution that gave him every privilege that most would only dream of.”
An insider said the Queen asked that Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39 – along with children Archie, 2, and Lilibet ‘Lili’, 5 weeks – came back to London to face the music. “It’s been quite some time since both Meghan and Harry have spoken to her in person, and she’s tired of all the miscommunication,” says a source.
“But perhaps even more importantly, she wants to spend time with her great-grandson and meeting the great-granddaughter who is named in her honor. The Queen is all too aware that at her age, chances to bond with newer family members – especially ones born overseas – are limited.
“She is especially keen to meet Lilibet, given Harry and Meghan made such a song and dance about naming their daughter after her.” Meghan and Lilibet will be in good condition till September.
In the meantime, Penny Junor, royal expert says New Idea that if Meghan and Harry do go to the UK with both children, then perhaps the relatives could resolve issues between them, said newidea.
“I would hope that the current rift will one day be healed and that they can all forgive and forget so that the cousins can all get to know one another,” Junor explains. “This is a heartbreaking situation, but I can’t see it happening any time soon.”
