It seems Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s brief time apart is doing them some good.
It appears that the former actress and the royal have been doing some serious thinking since the passing of Prince Philip, and they have reached the conclusion that they might have gone too far.
Along with the sorrow of losing a family member, Meghan Markle and her husband are now swimming in regret and even anger.
Prince Harry is said to be agonizing that his son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and unborn daughter will not get the opportunity to bond and be loved by their great-grandfather because of the big move to California and the complications caused by the coronavirus pandemic travel restrictions.
According to a friend of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who spoke to the media, the famous duo now also has deep “regret” over the ill timing of their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
While Prince Harry and his spouse had nothing but praises for Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, they made racist accusations against the royal family.
The Duke of Sussex also dropped the bombshell that Markle had suicidal thoughts and the monarchy failed to help her.
The damaging Oprah interview aired while Prince Philip was in the hospital battling an infection and later had heart surgery.
Prince Harry’s grandfather, 99, returned home and died a couple of weeks later. However, while the duo lamented the interview’s timing, they defended themselves by telling their friends they had no control over when the networks decided to broadcast it.
The friend explained: “They needed to have their say, and they couldn’t see any other way to do it. Harry and Meghan’s love and respect for Prince Philip and the Queen was never in doubt.”
Prince Harry was very close to his grandfather and often called him another “father figure.” The source revealed that Prince Harry is “upset” that life took Prince Philip away from his great-grandchildren.
Prince Harry is left angry that Philip will never get to know and spend time with Archie and will not meet his great-granddaughter, who will be born in June.
Philip was not able to meet two other great-grandsons — Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall honored him earlier this year by choosing the middle name Philip for their firstborn sons — August Philip Hawke and Lucas Philip Tindall.
Prince Harry is grateful that he stayed in touch with his family during the pandemic via Zoom. A pal of the pair stated how they “wish things could have been different.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also have high hopes that their relationship with Prince Charles, Prince William, and Kate Middleton be better “one day.”
Prince Harry has spoken to many royal members by phone as he quarantines and will come face-to-face with his brother, Prince William, at the funeral on Saturday.
Royal expert Nick Bullen believes that the brothers will come together and added: “It’s all speculation right now of what will happen. But funerals, weddings, and births do often reunite families. And I think both William and Harry will know – and do know – that the Duke of Edinburgh would want them to be reunited.”
Bullen went on to explain: “Let’s all hope that this is a catalyst for them to heal, especially for the Queen’s sake. It’s important that all the members of the royal family are pulling in the same direction as she steps into her platinum Jubilee year. So fingers crossed that this is a positive coming together.”
The passing of Prince Harry’s grandfather has changed a lot of things.
