Meghan Markle should “be quiet,” says royal author Angela Levin after it was reported the Duchess of Sussex is ready to forgive the family and “mend broken bridges.”
Reports emerged this week that friends of Meghan Markle, 39, said she was willing to “forgive” the royal family, following more than a year of the high-profile rift in the British monarchy, including Kate Middleton and Prince William.
Friends reportedly said that Meghan Markle thought Prince Philip would want the family to “put their differences aside” and “unite,” following his death last Friday at the age of 99.
A close friend of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, spoke to the Daily Mail and explained: “Meghan said her main concern right now is supporting Harry. She said she left it up to him as to whether or not she would attend the funeral. Meghan said it’s during these times when family should come together, put their differences aside and unite as one. She said this is what Prince Philip would want and that she’s willing to forgive and move forward.”
The Duchess of Sussex did not join her husband, Prince Harry, on a flight from Los Angeles to London over the weekend after doctors advised her not to travel while pregnant and expecting her second child this summer.
Furthermore, sources claimed that Meghan Markle did not want to be “the center of attention” at Prince Philip’s funeral, which took place at St George’s Chapel within the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday.
However, Angela Levin — who wrote Harry: Conversations with the Prince — believes if the comments are true, then Meghan Markle should “be quiet.”
Posting to Twitter after the reports were made, Angela Levin shared her view that Meghan Markle was showing “patronizing and grandiose” behavior.
Criticizing her even further, Levin remarked it was “interesting” that Meghan had been advised against traveling due to a health condition but planned to have the baby at home.
She revealed: “If Meghan didn’t want to be “center of attention at the funeral,” told “friends” she “adored Prince Philip” and that she was ready to ‘forgive the Royal Family.” Instead, all three comments show her patronizing and grandiose behavior. I don’t believe them.”
She added: “Interesting that Meghan’s doctor has advised her not to fly because of her “condition” yet so far has been happy for her to have a baby at home.”
Angela Levin also took time to comment on the statement made by Prince Harry’s older brother, Prince William, who recently paid tribute to his late grandfather, Prince Philip, as an “extraordinary man” who was part of an “extraordinary generation.”
Levin branded the statement “moving” and said Prince William had clearly been influenced by the Duke of Edinburgh‘s “sense of duty and humor.”
