'Why is SHE going?': Strong disapproval about Harry and MEGHAN heading to Balmoral may have caused 'change of plan'
LONDON, ENGLAND: Meghan Markle faced quite the backlash after it was initially announced that she and Prince Harry were both headed to Balmoral to see the Queen after doctors expressed concerns for her health.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were expected to attend the WellChild Awards ceremony in London on Thursday evening, September 8, but reportedly changed their plans to see the ailing monarch. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be traveling to Scotland”, a spokesperson for the couple had said. But later news confirmed that only Harry would go to see the Queen while Meghan would stay back in London in another "change of plans." Other senior royals were also informed of the Queen's condition and the latest announcement has heightened fears for her well-being. "Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen's doctors are concerned for Her Majesty's health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision," a royal spokesman said in a statement. "The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral."
Prince Charles, heir to the throne, is reportedly with the Queen at Balmoral after she was placed under supervision. Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle interrupted a debate in the House of Commons on Thursday to tell MPs about the sovereign's condition. Meanwhile, there is a growing crowd gathered outside the Queen's royal residence following the news of her deteriorating health.
The initial news of Meghan joining Harry to visit the ailing monarch, however, had caused a stir on social media. Most expressed hearty disapproval of their plans for the emergency visit in light of Meghan's comments against The Firm that shook the monarchy to its foundation. However, fans of the Duchess had also rushed to her defense and called for empathy during this difficult time.
"SHE should stay away," one tweeted. "Harry needs to be there fast and quietly. Leave his wife out of this. Too important. Show some respect, Harry," another added. A user shot back, writing, "Would you not show your husband support if he needed it?"
"Harry should go alone - Meghan should go home," one critic insisted, "What a nasty thing to say- wouldn’t you want your partner with you at a time like this?" another retorted.
However, most appeared to scorn the Duchess and wondered why she was going to visit the monarch, especially after her relentless attacks on the royal family. "Well it'll be in the documentary, won't it? That's why she's going. Oh poor me the granny-in-law who I barely met died *silently weeps on camera*," one wrote. "Too little too damn late the awful trouble & lies they’ve both caused. Why is she going ??" another asked.
"What's M doing there she has no right after the way she's threatened the Queen and her family. I hope they stick her in a room by herself while H is allowed 5 minutes with his grandmother, then out they go..." someone else offered. "Those 2 are responsible for a lot of the stress and upset she has been through," another added.

Harry and Meghan flew to the UK on September 4 for the first time since the Queen's platinum jubilee celebrations in June, when the couple attended the Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral.
The following day they attended the One Young World 2022 Manchester Summit which brings together thousands of young leaders from across the globe to “accelerate social impact both in-person and digitally." Then, on Tuesday, September 6, the Sussexes were in Germany to mark one year until the Invictus Games takes place in Düsseldorf. Harry, the founder and patron of the event, previously announced the sixth games would be held in September 2023, the Independent had reported.
