Meghan Markle is 'willing to forgive and move forward' with the royal family following Prince Philip's death, a friend of hers has reportedly claimed.
- A friend of Meghan has reportedly claimed that the Duchess of Sussex is ready to “forgive and move on” from the tensions with the royal family, in light of Prince Philip’s death.
- It’s also been claimed that Meg and Harry wish the timing of their Oprah interview “could have been different”.
- This royal news comes after Prince William shared an adorable unseen photo of Prince George and Prince Philip.
With Prince Philip’s funeral just days away and only 30 guests attending, it’s been said that Meghan hopes that she and the royals can “put their differences aside” and move on from the tensions built up from her time both in and out of the royal family.
The details of the contention between the Sussexes and the rest of the royals were brought to light when Meghan and Harry sat down for their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
During the shockwave chat, it was claimed that an unnamed member of the royal family had made a comment about Archie’s skin colour, while Meghan also hinted that she felt the family’s decision not to make Archie a prince may have had something to do with his race.
During a conversation about Archie not being made a prince, Oprah asked Meghan, “Do you think it’s because of his race? I know that’s a loaded question.”
“In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time, we had the conversation of he won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title and, also, concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born,” Meghan told Oprah.
“They were concerned that if he were too brown that that would be a problem?,” Oprah later asked.
“If that’s the assumption you’re making…that would be a safe one,” Meghan added.
It was also alleged that Meghan was denied mental health support from The Firm when she “didn’t want to be alive anymore”.
Meanwhile Prince Harry opened up about his strained bond with his brother and father, describing his current relationship with Prince William as “distance” and admitting that Prince Charles had stopped taking his calls when he first left royal life.
The interview aired while Prince Philip was unwell in hospital and following his death last week, Prince Harry will be one of the 30 guests attending Philip’s funeral under current lockdown restrictions – pregnant Meghan, however, has remained in America.
A friend of the couple reportedly told the Daily Mail, “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.”
They added that Meghan is ready to “forgive and move on”.
A source also told Heat that Meghan and Harry regretfully wish that the way the interview panned out “could have been different”, now that Prince Philip has gone.
