If William and Harry inaugurated this June 1st the statue in tribute to Diana in England, Meghan Markle remained in California with her two children Archie and Lilibet Diana.
This Thursday, July 1st, the eyes of the world were riveted on the Kensington gardens. Indeed, it is there that William and Harry met to inaugurate a statue of their mother Diana who would have been 60 years old today. The two brothers appeared with a smile, suggesting that tensions between them had eased, but no trace of Meghan Markle. The actress, who has just given birth to her second child, a baby girl named Lilibet Diana, remained in California.
Barely recovered from giving birth, Meghan Markle had to give up the trip in order to stay with her daughter and her eldest child, Archie, born in 2019. Where she lives with her husband, the one who gave a great interview to Oprah Winfrey last March will not be able to escape the media pressure. By preferring not to make the trip to England, Meghan Markle has been strongly tackled by the British press, some even going so far as to say that she did not want to cross Kate and William, with whom she is on the outs.
Meghan Markle in mourning
While she is alone in the United States, Meghan Markle had to face a sad news. Her uncle Michael Markle, the brother of her father Thomas Markle, died at the age of 82, while battling Parkinson’s disease for several years. As the Daily Mail reports, “Mike was a charming, gentle and quiet old man.” No doubt she must be supported by her mother Doria Ragland in this complicated moment.
