After making an ‘unbelievable’ offer of forgiveness to the Royal Family, Meghan Markle has been advised to ‘be quiet.’
Angela Levin, a well-known royal columnist, sent the straightforward message to the Duchess of Sussex shortly after her friends said that she is “ready to forgive” the Royal Family for the racism charges she and Prince Harry leveled against them during their explosive Oprah Winfrey interview last month.
They went on to say that after the duke’s death last Friday, the 39-year-old “wants to put their differences aside” to move on.
The pregnant Duchess did not travel to the UK, citing medical advice against flying.
She also didn’t want to be the “centre of attention,” according to reports.
Ms Levin, who authored the best-selling Harry: Conversations with the Prince, tweeted her views on the duchess.
“If Meghan didn’t want to be ‘centre of attention at the funeral’, told ‘friends’ she ‘adored Prince Philip’ and that she was ready to ‘forgive the Royal Family’, she should be quiet,” she wrote.
“Instead all three comments show her patronising and grandiose behaviour. I don’t believe them .”
“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,” she said, referring to doctors’ advice.
98% don’t think Royal Family should apologize
Following this story, an Express survey asked: “Should the Royal Family apologize to Meghan Markle?”
A whopping 98 percent (24,976) of the 25, 719 votes cast said the Firm did not apologize to Meghan.
Just 2% (625 people) said they should, while 118 said they don’t know.
Some of the reactions:
Meghan may regard herself as a survivor, and she is… a victim of her own creation.
Everyone now despises her.
Royal Family doesn’t have to apologize for her scathing remarks!
Meghan has trashed the Royal Family, the Nation – above all, demonstrating her contempt towards the Queen at a moment of deep sorrow for her with Prince Philip’s death – the Oprah interview is frankly unforgivable.
I never want to see her at a public function in the United Kingdom.
Who does she think she is?
Meghan ‘willing to forgive royals’ after Prince Philip’s death – Friends say
With some of the claims she made during the Oprah Winfrey interview, including talking about struggles she had with palace personnel as a working member of the Royal family, and one of her statements seeing Prince William having to refute his family being racist, Meghan Markle sparked a massive backlash on social media and in the general public.
Her claims sparked a high-profile spat with Piers Morgan, the host of Good Morning Britain, and her comments in the interview may undoubtedly have left a sour taste in the mouths of certain members of the royal family.
Meghan’s friends have reported that she is ready to leave the past behind her and turn a fresh leaf in her strained relationship with her husband’s family.
The close friends of the Duchess of Sussex talked with the Daily Mail. They said that she believes that that is what the Duke might have wanted her to do, mending the shattered bridges between herself and her husband’s family.
“Meghan said it’s during these times when family should come together, put their differences aside and unite as one,” a source told the Daily Mail.
“She said this is what Prince Philip would want and that she’s willing to forgive and move forward.”
“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.”
The remarks came after the duchess accused the royal family of racism and said she was denied help by palace staff while she was having suicidal thoughts.
In the interview with Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a series of claims that sent shockwaves around the globe.
The Queen replied a day later in a statement released by Buckingham Palace, stating that the accusations will be treated “very seriously,” but that “recollections may vary.”
After landing in the UK for the first time in over a year, Harry issued a heartfelt statement in which he paid homage to Prince Philip.
He, Meghan, Archie, and their baby daughter, who is expected in the future, will always have a “special place for you in our hearts,” said the former working prince.
