Meghan Markle Won’t Attend Prince Philip’s Funeral, Harry Will
Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, is set to attend his grandfather’s funeral next Saturday, after Prince Philip passed away at Windsor Castle Friday morning. But absent from the event will be his wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex.
A spokesperson for the new California residents and recently controversial royal couple said Meghan will be unable to attend Prince Philip’s April 17 funeral in the United Kingdom because she is pregnant.
The couple have been hounded by international paparazzi after they did an interview with Oprah Winfrey last month that revealed allegations of racial bias by royal family members against Markle, who is biracial.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson told multiple news wires Saturday morning that Harry will be following COVID-19 travel guidelines as he heads from California to Windsor next week for his late grandfather’s funeral.
Philip died at the age of 99. He had been married to Queen Elizabeth II for 73 years and was the longest-serving consort in British history.
