Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wouldn’t have missed Prince Philip’s 99th birthday on June 10 for anything in the world. As revealed by HELLO magazine, the Sussex would even have made a video call to the Prince to wish him well in person! Remote reunion synonymous with appeasement.
Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth, celebrated his 99th birthday on 10 June. An event celebrated in the intimacy of Windsor Castle, where both spouses have been confined for several weeks due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
No family meal or garden party, Prince Philip was unfortunately deprived of his loved ones on this very special day. But according to the magazine HELLO, which quotes a source close to the palace, Prince Philip would have been very surprised to receive a call from Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.
The Sussex, who left the UK with a bang, had not seen the Queen and Prince Philip for several months and were even said to be angry. In reality, it seems that they are not. Very close to his grandfather, of whom he is the spitting image, Harry would not have missed such an important day for anything in the world.
HELLO specifies that the call could have taken place via the zoom videoconference service, which will thus have allowed Prince Philip to finally see his grandson again, but also and above all, his great grandson Archie. Last March, the Sussex had already made a video call to the Queen for her 94th birthday. A very connected family!
But when will the reunion be in the flesh? At this point, the uncertainty remains. Harry should have returned to England in May, but the reunion has obviously been compromised by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Let us recall that the age of Queen Elizabeth and her husband makes them very vulnerable to the virus and that they must therefore avoid contact with the outside world. “No one will take the risk, especially with the threat of a second wave within the year,” an insider told the Sunday Times a few weeks ago. No doubt the video call from Sussex must have warmed Prince Philip’s heart in these difficult times.
