Meghan Markle's tiff with her dad Thomas has upset the Queen who is 'unhappy' with how it's being handled
The 92-year-old monarch is reportedly upset over how the Markle family drama has been handled by the Palace officials all this while
According to a new report, it is being said that Queen Elizabeth is not entirely happy with whatever's going on between Meghan Markle and her father, Thomas Markle. The 92-year-old monarch is reportedly upset over how the Markle family drama has been handled.
As most royal fans would know, the Duchess of Sussex has not spoken to her father ever since tying the knot with Prince Harry in May this year. Meanwhile, her estranged father has appeared on TV and given a number of interviews since then, pleading for his pregnant daughter to contact him.
In one of his recent TV appearances, Thomas even said that he had been texting his youngest daughter almost every single day since her wedding, but he has apparently been 'ghosted' by a pregnant Meghan, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry in spring next year.
A source recently spoke to Vanity Fair and said, "She [The Queen] was very concerned that it [the Markle situation] was spiralling out of control, which it was. Buckingham Palace wanted to be able to do something and be proactive and make the situation go away."
The source continued, "It was a direction from the Queen, so her courtiers were under strict instructions to sort it out. But Kensington Palace was not singing from the same hymn sheet, and that was because the message was coming from Meghan. She didn’t want to engage and thought that she could handle it on her own."
This comes after the monarch is supposed to stress upon healing "even with the most deeply held differences" in her Christmas message for this year. In her utterly festive speech, the Queen is believed to say, "I believe (Jesus') message of peace on Earth and goodwill to all is never out of date. It can be heeded by everyone. It's needed as much as ever. Even with the most deeply held difference, treating the other person with respect and as a fellow human being is always a good first step towards greater understanding."
While Meghan's family drama is getting played out for the world to see, rumors of a rift within the walls of Kensington Palace have also been making the rounds for quite some time now. And quite recently, it was reported that the rumors have gotten to Prince Harry, who is said to have become quite grumpy in the last few days.
A palace insider claimed that Harry had been “really grumpy.” The source added, “Something has changed, and no one can quite put their finger on it. He looks cross with the world.” “Harry doesn’t have his own structure like William, whose role [as the future King] is clear-cut and defined. Harry’s isn’t,” the palace insider explained to People.
