Queen Elizabeth Dying Of Stress Because Of Prince Andrew, Prince Harry, And Meghan Markle

In November 2021, National Enquirer alleged that the then-monarch had a feeling that her days were already numbered because she had been dealing with too much stress. But since she promised to serve The Crown until her dying breath, she refused to abdicate and carried on with her duties.

“Frankly, Prince Harry and Meghan’s bitter attacks on the family, Harry’s feud with his brother, Prince William, and the rape scandal Prince Andrew denies are sending Her Majesty to the grave too soon. The palace is panicked. They don’t want the public to know how serious the situation is. But the truth is, Her Majesty is fighting for her life,” the source said.
