Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have yet to put closure on their alleged strained relationship with the other members of the royal family. It was claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did have a bad blood with Prince William and Kate Middleton when they announced their decision to ditch the royal life for good.
Neither Meghan Markle nor Prince Harry has commented about their rumored rift with the other members of the royal family. However, the younger son of the late Princess Diana hinted that Queen Elizabeth has been in constant contact with Archie during their first few weeks in the United States.
Now, new reports suggest that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry snubbing Queen Elizabeth’s invitation to spend Christmas was an insult to the monarch. Keep on reading to know more details.
Did Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Snub Queen Elizabeth?
Most, if not all, royal followers can recall that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made headlines in 2019 after they broke the royal tradition of celebrating Christmas with the rest of their extended family in Sandringham. Instead, the Sussex couple decided to spend the holidays in Canada at the time.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly spent Christmas on Vancouver Island with their first born, Archie, and the former actress’ mother, Doria Ragland. Though the royal family did not make a huge issue out of it, Richard Kay of the Daily Mail claimed that it was an “extraordinary slight” against Queen Elizabeth.
During a recent episode of Fergie & Meghan: Inconvenient Royals, per Express UK, Richard stated:
“That seemed an extraordinary slight in many ways. The Queen dearly loves having all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren around her at Christmas. The suggestion was perhaps Harry and Meghan were being selfish about all this.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry never returned to the United Kingdom together since their infamous Megxit. Earlier this year, there were speculations that the Sussex pair might return to Britain and spend the Christmas and New Year break with the other royal family members in Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham estate.
However, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to spend Christmas at their mansion in Montecito, especially with the exacerbating COVID-19 situation in Europe lately. Doria Ragland is expected to join the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, alongside grandkids Archie and Lilibet.
