After the shock interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth II reportedly plans to call her grandson in the United States, not to reproach him, but to try to talk with him.
After the time of declarations, the time of explanations? The interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry has definitely not fallen on deaf ears. The couple has multiplied the revelations, explaining in particular how the British royal family had not supported them in difficult times, but also how one of the members of the Firm had made remarks with racist connotations on their son Archie. So many words that broke like an avalanche on the Crown, which has so far contented itself with a statement to let people know that it takes the subject of racist remarks seriously. After the time of official exchanges, could come the time of private discussions. According to the Daily Mail tabloid, Queen Elizabeth II plans to contact Prince Harry in the next few days.
According to the British media, the sovereign would like to call directly her grandson in Montecito – where he lives with his wife and son. And no question of complaining against the Duke of Sussex. On the contrary, the Queen would have planned to make peace with him. This is what a source reveals to another newspaper across the Channel, the Daily Mirror. “The Queen has taken the decision not to add fuel to the fire. Everyone knows that Harry and Meghan could speak publicly again if they are not satisfied,” a source said.
The Queen will take a sensitive approach
Only the Queen seems to be able to defuse such an explosive situation. For Prince Charles and Prince William have truly been offended by the comments of Meghan Markle and Harry. Known for her level-headedness, the sovereign is a not inconsiderable asset for the Firm. “It’s hard to underestimate how shocked everyone was at what was said,” the prying voice revealed to the Daily Mirror. “But the Queen has taken a very measured and sensitive approach. She leads by example. This is an issue that she and her family need to address.” A monarch willing to go to great lengths to maintain the order she has been fighting for for nearly 70 years.
Prince Charles wanted to hit hard The Queen put the stop to it
Upset by the accusations made by Meghan Markle and Harry during their interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Charles was determined to hit hard, reveals The Sun this Friday, March 12. But the queen would not have given him the opportunity …
Enough is enough! Wounded by the attacks of Meghan Markle and Harry, Prince Charles did not want to stay there. He would have even asked to “refute one by one the claims that have been made,” reveals The Sun this Friday, March 12. A strategy that would not have convinced the queen.
“There were different reactions at the Palace when they thought about what to do,” said a source. And to specify that Elizabeth II preferred to issue “a discreet statement explaining that they were sad to learn of the difficulties” encountered by the couple, and this, even though Charles, “overwhelmed by despair”, had expressed his intention to strike hard. “The issues raised, particularly the issue of race, are concerning. Although some memories differ, they are taken very seriously and will be dealt with by the family in private,” Buckingham Palace finally made known this Tuesday, March 9, further stating that “Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”
A hard blow for Prince Charles
For his part, Prince Charles, whom Meghan Markle and Harry accuse of having filtered their calls, refuses for the moment to comment. “For Prince Harry, to say that he felt disappointed by his father must have been a difficult thing to say, but also difficult to hear for Charles,” analyzes Sarah Gristwood, a British journalist specializing in the royal family, in the columns of Vanity Fair. And to evoke the impact of the couple’s words on the future monarch: “At a time when Charles was beginning to look like a king more popular than we would have guessed, here is a blow to his reputation. An intimate wound that Charles, like William, is not ready to forgive.
