King Charles’s decision on Meghan ’caused argument’ with Harry on day of Queen’s death


The decision surrounding the Duchess of Sussex not travelling to Balmoral Castle on the day of the Queen’s death reportedly “caused an argument” among members of the Royal Family

“There were lots of questions as to why that was.

“From reports, it points to the fact the now King Charles thought it was inappropriate, perhaps, for the Duchess of Sussex to be there.

“That caused an argument and, therefore, a delay in planes taking off.”

The GB News royal reporter claimed the decision for Meghan Markle to remain in Windsor had led to tensions between key members of the Royal Family and, to an extent, even delayed their travel to Balmoral Castle.

A spokesperson for the Sussexes had previously confirmed the Duke and Duchess would be travelling to the Queen’s Scottish residence together, although the statement was later corrected to clarify only Prince Harry would be making the journey.

Appearing visibly sombre, the Duke of Sussex was seen entering the gates of Balmoral Castle on his own, two hours after the public announcement of the Queen’s death had been made.

Prince William, alongside the Queen’s four children, arrived some hours ahead of Prince Harry after a public statement reported doctors were “concerned” for the monarch’s health.

The decision for the Princess to remain at Adelaide Cottage reportedly allowed her to accompany her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, during the difficult time.

Prince Harry was seen leaving Balmoral Castle early the following day, roughly 12 hours after he had arrived from London.

Buckingham Palace has made no official statement on the decision for the Duchess of Sussex not to join other members of the Royal Family in the dash to the Queen’s bedside in Scotland.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined the new Prince and Princess of Wales in Windsor to greet crowds of mourners, marking the group’s first public appearance together in more than two years.

Prince Harry remained at the forefront of royal ceremonies over the coming days, with the Duchess of Sussex also present during the procession of the Queen’s coffin to Westminster Hall and the later state funeral service.

In tribute to the late Queen, Prince Harry said: “Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings – from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my commander-in-chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren.

“I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You are already sorely missed, not just by us, but by the world over. And as it comes to first meetings, we now honour my father in his new role as King Charles III.”
