Meghan Markle, six months pregnant, did not attend the funeral of Prince Philip. But if our sources are to be believed the Duchess of Sussex was still affected by his funeral.
Meghan Markle, six months pregnant, followed the funeral of Prince Philip from her home in Santa Barbara, USA. But his heart, he was well and truly at Windsor Castle, in the United Kingdom. If the Duchess of Sussex triggered a storm within the British royal family, she was no less attached to the Duke of Edinburgh. “She lost a member of his family,” recalled his friend Omid Scobie on ABC, during the religious ceremony.
Before adding: “It’s a sad day for her, her mind is on the funeral.” It must be said that Prince Philip and Meghan Markle had a “special bond”. “She became very close to the Queen and Prince Philip over the last few years. It was probably her strongest relationship within the family and then those relationships have dwindled this week,” assured CBS reporter Gayle King, as related by our source.
Saddened, Meghan Markle shared a delicate attention for Prince Philip on this day of mourning. The former actress has, in fact, sent to St. George’s Chapel a very symbolic flower crown, our source reported. This floral arrangement, designed by her favorite florist, Willow Crossley, includes acanthus mollis, the national flower of Greece, as a symbol of her heritage and eryngium, more commonly known as sea holly, as a representation of the Royal Marines, as our sources said. A great fan of calligraphy, Prince Harry’s wife accompanied it with a “handwritten note. The content has not, however, been revealed. One thing is certain, Prince Philip, very attached to his military past, would have been very touched by his gesture.
Meghan Markle supports Harry
The one who is expecting her second child, whose birth is expected in June, also thought about her husband all day. “Even if Meghan is not here, she obviously supports Harry,” revealed Gayle King. In addition to having to say goodbye to his grandfather, whom he did not see before he took his last breath, Prince Harry had to face his family. A long-awaited reunion since his shock interview with Oprah Winfrey, which shook the Windsor. The grandson of the bereaved sovereign also found Prince William, with whom he is in dispute for several months. If the two men were not placed next to each other at the ceremony, the two brothers returned to Windsor Castle on foot, accompanied by Kate Middleton.
