All the signals being sent to Queen Elizabeth II by her grandson and his wife have been received, and she has made some moves to indicate where she stands.
Since stepping down from their royal duties and moving to California, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have managed to ruffle The Queen‘s feathers purposely.
The power couple first got on Her Majesty’s bad side by claiming that the United Kingdom is not working hard enough to end systemic racism.
Words quickly traveled to the Queen’s ears that the Duke and Duchess had failed to respect the contract they signed when they left London to remain politically neutral.
Harry and Meghan meddled in the 2020 presidential election during a virtual event by urging people to vote. Meghan became the first member of the royal family to cast a ballot for an American president.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex created a ton of drama and were heavily criticized for their decision to share a series of somber photos of their private visit to the Los Angeles National Cemetery on Remembrance Sunday.
The pictures were released via the Sussexes’ press office after their request to have a wreath laid at London’s ceremony was turned down.
It was revealed that the royal family was not happy about the pictures. Fed up with the media circus, Queen Elizabeth has turned her attention to drama-free Kate Middleton and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.
Royal sources speaking to Us Weekly said the Queen appreciates William and Kate more than ever, and she likes the way they carry themselves.
The person familiar with the situation shared: “Queen Elizabeth is allowing Prince William and Prince Charles to be more hands-on in the big decision making and changes that need to be played out in order to build a stronger monarchy. The Queen is set in her ways, but over the years, she’s learned to be more open-minded and takes great interest in hearing what they have to say, especially William, who is relatable to the next generation.”
Prince William’s wife has worked hard to impress the Queen, and she is taking notes.
The insider said this about Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: “Kate has gone above and beyond to impress the Queen, and it’s paid off. While their relationship remains formal, there’s mutual respect between the two parties. Queen Elizabeth finds it refreshing that there’s never any drama or scandal surrounding Kate and William. In her eyes, they’re the perfect suitors for the position. She adores Kate. The Queen couldn’t be prouder. She has told them numerous times that they’re doing a wonderful job.”
Kate is winning, but some are wondering if Meghan ever tried to even compete.
