Meghan and Harry are ‘living the fairytale’ in LA – and got their mega mansion as they ‘know people’, reveals Gayle King

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are “living the fairytale” since moving to LA with one-year-old son Archie, friend Gayle King claims.

The US host, who is a close friend of the Duchess of Sussex, reflected on the couple’s relationship on their second anniversary on Monday.


Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the CBS This Morning host said: “They've got a little baby, Archie, they're living in the United States, and I think the fairytale continues for them and it just makes me happy.”

Harry and Meghan are believed to be staying at producer Tyler Perry’s swanky £15million Tsucan-style villa in LA.

And while it was rumoured that Meg’s pal Oprah Winfrey had orchestrated the stay, Gayle, 65, says that’s not the case.

She continued: “Oprah didn't hook that up. Harry and Meghan know people.

“Tyler knows people. Oprah knows people but she did not make that connection for Harry and Meghan to live in Tyler's house.”

The Tuscan-style villa offers spectacular, sweeping views of the city from their ultra-exclusive neighbourhood.

And inside, the home is kitted out with all the amenities any A-lister could crave, including a Grecian spa-style bathroom with white pillars and a sunken bath.

There is also a spacious kitchen with a marble island that looks perfect for foodie Meghan to whip up some meals for her small family.

Meghan and Harry reportedly flew on Tyler’s £120m private jet to move into his Beverly Hills mega-mansion in March.

Insiders told the Daily Mail: "It was a well-planned operation that appears to have worked perfectly" – allowing the couple to avoid any type of wait at customs.

It is unknown whether the couple are renting or staying there as guests, but there is no record of the mansion having been sold.

Aerial photographs reveal the couple's A-list neighbours – with red carpet stars such as Katy Perry, Jennifer Lawrence and Sir Elton John. 

In other royal news, we told you how Kate and William didn't publicly congratulate Harry and Meghan on their second anniversary.

And Meghan Markle loved learning martial arts her former trainer has revealed – and she chatted to him in Spanish.

Meanwhile, the Queen is said to have found Meghan Markle’s wedding dress ‘surprising’ because it was so white, royal sources claim.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry provide 250,000 meals for struggling Brits during lockdown with wedding donation

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry pledged the money generated from their royal wedding broadcast to help the Feeding Britain charity. 

And now it has been revealed that their £90,000 donation has helped to provide 250,000 meals to struggling Brits during lockdown. 

The charity's director Andrew Forsey told Fabulous: “The Duke and Duchess' generous support covers the costs of distributing 250,000 meals across our network.

“All of those meals are being distributed through our emergency food response during the coronavirus lockdown.”

A spokesperson for the couple – who are now living in LA following Megxit – previously said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are "delighted" the money is going towards "such a great cause".

The couple tied the knot two years ago to the day on May 19, 2018 at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The duke and duchess reportedly told the Archbishop of Canterbury – who is President of Feeding Britain – that they wanted the money to go to the charity after UK schools closed in March.

The publication reports that any excess profits from their BBC wedding broadcast – which was watched by over 18m people in the UK – was always going to be donated to a charity of the couple's choice.

However, Meghan and Harry were reportedly notified of the £90,000 as the coronavirus crisis broke and wanted to support the Archbishop of Canterbury's chosen charity as he conducted their wedding ceremony.

Meghan and Harry's 2018 royal wedding

Shortly after their engagement was revealed, it was confirmed the wedding between Harry and Meghan will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2018.

The couple tied the knot at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Charles and Camilla had their televised blessing there in 2005 and it offered the couple a more low key venue than Westminster Abbey, where Kate Middleton and Prince William got married.

St George's Chapel can accommodate 800 guests, whereas the Abbey seats 2,000.

BBC One, ITV and Sky all broadcasted the historic union.

Andrew Forsey says the donation will allow the charity to "keep breakfast, lunch and dinner, so three square meals, on the table of many tens of thousands of children across our network."

He added to Fabulous: "The incredibly generous support we're receiving from the Duke and Duchess is enabling our emergency food programme to bring much-needed relief – in the form of hundreds of thousands of meals – to so many families during these incredibly challenging times. 

“Families who were already vulnerable before the pandemic are now even more so, having been impacted by a catastrophic mix of low income and isolation."

The charity works in 12 areas across the UK and has also set up bases in London and Scotland since the coronavirus crisis began to run their emergency food programme for those in need.

In January 2019, Meghan and Harry visited Feeding Britain's first citizens supermarket based in Birkenhead.

Andrew added: "The magic that they left on the town that day has been carried forward through this very generous donation."

A spokesperson for the couple said: "The Duke and Duchess were able to speak to the Archbishop recently, and were moved to hear all about the work Feeding Britain was doing to support people during Covid-19."

"They have particularly fond memories of their visit to the citizens' supermarket in Birkenhead, especially the generosity and compassion of everyone working there to help others.

"They are delighted to be able to ensure this money is donated to such a great cause."

We shared how chatty Archie calls Prince Harry ‘Dada’ as he films him and Meghan Markle at their LA home.

And royal fans have pointed out that Archie looks the spitting image of his dad in the new video.

Meanwhile, Piers Morgan says he made things ‘too personal’ with Meghan and Harry as he admitted he ‘took it too far’.

Harry Kane to sponsor Leyton Orient’s kits for 2020-21 season with shirts paying thanks to coronavirus frontline workers – The Sun

HARRY KANE is making a sensational return to Leyton Orient – as their shirt sponsor.

The big-hearted England skipper and Tottenham striker has agreed with his local League Two club that they will wear the names and logos of his three favourite good causes – including a message to the nation’s Covid-19 frontline heroes – on the front of their shirts next season.

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates



The groundbreaking deal, believed to be worth around £100,000, has been approved by the EFL, FA and Premier League.

Kane, 26, has a soft spot for the Os after they gave him his first taste of pro football with a loan spell in the second half of the 2010-11 season.

He said: “I was born and brought up only a couple of miles from the stadium and I am really happy to have the opportunity to give back to the club that gave me my first professional start.

“This also gives me a platform to be able to say a big thank you to the many frontline heroes and charities out there who provide care and support during these challenging times.”

The unprecedented sponsorship deal for the 2020-21 campaign will see the front of Orient’s home shirt emblazoned with a thank-you message to those key workers on the frontline of the country’s battle to contain the current coronavirus crisis.

The Os’ away shirts will have the Haven House Children’s Hospice – a charity Kane and Tottenham have long supported.

While the tops of Orient’s third strip will feature the logo of Mind, the mental health charity.

The deal will see the three good causes able to enjoy free hospitality at home games – as well as ten per cent of the proceeds of every shirt sold.



Kane finished his stint at Brisbane Road with five goals in 18 matches.

Orient chief executive Danny Mackin said: “What started with a simple idea has escalated into a very unique and emotive shirt sponsorship agreement.

“When we discussed with the England captain Harry Kane and his team at CK66, we all decided that we wanted this to be unique.

“We wanted to say thank you for the exceptional hard work and dedication of the frontline heroes during this pandemic and also bring attention to the other charities out there who have all suffered financial loss due to the pandemic.

“We are in uncertain and worrying times across the world but thanks to their efforts we will get through this together.

“Thank you, Harry, for your amazing support and generosity – you are a true role model for the modern game.”

Orient’s commercial chief Josh Stephens added: “I think every Orient fan has a soft spot for Harry and it’s fantastic that Harry is supporting three extremely worthy causes.

“He is also supporting the club during these challenging times and we are extremely grateful to him and all at CK66.

“As we all look forward to live football, I for one cannot wait until the O's run out donning the ‘Thankyou frontline heroes’ message.”

Why Prince Harry Is More Open About His Mental Health Struggles Than Prince William, According to Expert

Though both Prince Harry and Prince William are vocal about mental health awareness, Prince Harry has been more open about his own struggles over the years. One royal expert shared the reason why Harry has shared more about his mental health than his brother.

Prince Harry struggled with processing his mother’s death

Losing his mother Princess Diana at such a young age was traumatic for Prince Harry, but he buried the grief down deep and carried on. Eventually, repressing his sadness bubbled to the surface and he found himself battling some significant mental health issues.

Prince Harry opened up about his mental health struggles during a 2017 interview with The Telegraph’s Bryony Gordon on the Mad World podcast. “I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well,” he shared.

“I have probably been very close to a complete breakdown onnumerous occasions when all sorts of grief and sort of lies and misconceptionsand everything are coming to you from every angle,” he added.

In his 20s, it came to a head, as Prince Harry shared that “allof this grief that I have never processed started to come to the forefront andI was like, there is actually a lot of stuff here that I need to deal with.”      

Prince Harry is more open than his brother

Prince Harry has been more open about his personal issues than William for a good reason. CEO of mental health clinic Smart TMS, Gerrard Barnes, shared with Express why there’s such a difference in the way each brother discusses mental health.

“Harry has a different role in the monarchy if he even has any role at all at the moment,” Barnes noted. “Prince Harry is not an heir to throne in a direct way that Prince William is, he is able to speak out in ways that William doesn’t feel able to talk about.”

He added, “He has got more latitude and opportunitythan William. One would hope that if Prince William has any mental healthissues of his own he has a support network around him.”

“People he can rely on when he needs them, thesepeople, you would imagine are confidential,” Barnes shared. “They keepthese things to themselves as it would not be good for these things to becomepublic without his say so.”

Kate Middleton has been candid as well

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was praised for her candid interview in February on the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast, in which she shared how she experiences mom guilt just like everyone else.

Royal author Leslie Carroll told Express that Kate might have been inspired by the way Harry has been so open. “Perhaps the duchess was inspired by Harry’s candid guest podcast appearance discussing his 20-year struggle to cope with the death of his mother,” Carroll explained.

She added, “And the mental health issues that dog him to this day when he’s in large crowds such as walkabout. Fears about paparazzi that have led him to be so protective about Meghan and Archie because he was unable to protect his mum.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's New Life Will Push Harry To 'the Bottom' Expert Claims

PrinceHarry and Meghan Markle are still adjusting to a new way of life now thatthey’ve leftthe royal family. The duke and duchess have settled down in California,though rumor has it they’re still looking for their permanent home.

Although Harry and Meghan left the family to start a new life, one royal expert is convinced that the move is actually going to benefit Meghan more than Harry — and that it will result in the prince being at “the bottom” when the dust settles.  

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially left the royal family in March

Back in January, the duke and duchess announced on Instagram that they would be stepping back from their roles as senior royals. Ever since the couple wed back in 2018, they’ve dealt with a massive amount of bad publicity — mostly directed at Meghan. The media dug into Meghan’s past and pulled up information about her family. Outlets also targeted Meghan as having started a feud with Kate Middleton, and the duchess couldn’t catch a break. It led Meghan to have a difficult time winning over the public.

Meghan and Harry left to Canada shortly after their announcement, only to return to the United Kingdom once in March to finish out their royal duties. As of March 31, the two were officially former senior royals.

View this post on Instagram

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

Harry has hinted in the past that he never wanted to be a royal

Harry didn’t have an easy time growing up in the spotlight.The prince went through a lot after his mother died in 1997, and in 2017, 20years after her death, Harry revealed in an interview with Newsweekthat he still hasn’t healed from the loss.

Writer Angela Levin also noted in the article that Harry said numerous times that he longs to be “something other than Prince Harry.” Though the world didn’t put two and two together at the time, Harry’s statement might have been hinting at a potential royal departure all along.

One expert is convinced the move will leave Harry at ‘the bottom’

Harry and Meghan’s shift to a new life seems to be what isbest for them; it allows them to move out of the spotlight and start a new lifeas a regular couple rather than as two of the world’s most important people. However,one royal expert thinks it will have a negative effect on Harry.

Kelvin Mackenzie, former editor of The Sun and someone who has been following the royals for years, thinks that Meghan and Harry’s departure will leave Harry with less than it will leave Meghan. “I massively admire Meghan… She came from nothing and ended up at the top,” Mackenzie told Express. “Harry, started at the top, ending up down the bottom… He’s going to end up as a butler.”

‘The bottom’ might be exactly where Harry wants to be

Mackenzie essentially said that Meghan and Harry’s marriage will result in Meghan’s fame and Harry’s demise, and suggested the two will end up divorced for that reason. But being “a butler” might be exactly what Harry wants. He’s always shied away from fame, and though he certainly hopes his marriage with Meghan works out, he might not mind if she ends up the more famous of the two.

In Archie’s birthday video, Harry was behind the camera — still there, but out of sight — seemingly exactly where he wanted to be. His marriage to Meghan could potentially be the best thing that ever happens to him.

Harry Maguire picks his dream Man Utd centre-back partner as Rio Ferdinand after modelling his game around legend – The Sun

HARRY MAGUIRE has picked Manchester United legend and idol Rio Ferdinand as his dream centre-back partner.

The six-time Premier League winner was a role model for the current Red Devils captain during his 12 years at Old Trafford.

When asked who his ideal companion at the back would be from the club's long list of star defenders, Maguire went for Ferdinand ahead of potential candidates such as Nemanja Vidic, Jaap Stam and Steve Bruce.

The 27-year-old told the club website: "I think that is a tough question because there are so many excellent defenders that have been at this club, loads that I have looked up to and built my game around.

"I would go with Rio Ferdinand. I have always spoken highly about Rio and the way that I looked up to him when I was younger.

"I tried to model my game around him and I learned so much from watching him, so I will go with Rio."

Maguire has some way to go to match the 14 pieces of silverware Ferdinand accrued at United and he opened up on why his Red Devils side are struggling to achieve their goals.

Sat three points off Champions League qualification at football's suspension, the former Leicester star detailed how the team are their own worst enemy.

Maguire continued: "As a Red, our toughest opponent, probably, is ourselves.

"I would say that at times this year, as a team, we have probably let ourselves down by being a bit too inconsistent, not just for a full game but during games.

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry tell-all book set for August release

Queen bans Harry, Meghan from using ‘Sussex Royal’ title

FOX Business’ Ashley Webster reports on the Queen banning Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from using the ‘Sussex Royal’ title.

A tell-all book chronicling the lives of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is set for an August release and was penned by two reporters who have worked closely with the royal couple for years.

Continue Reading Below

“Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family,” was written by royal insiders Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie. The tome will be released on Aug. 11, 2020 and is already available for pre-order ranging in price between $14.99 for the Kindle edition and $27.99 for hardcover.

MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY SHOPPING FOR HOME IN LOS ANGELES: REPORT

“When news of the budding romance between a beloved English prince and an American actress broke, it captured the world’s attention and sparked an international media frenzy,” states a description of the book.

“But while the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have continued to make headlines—from their engagement, wedding, and birth of their son Archie to their unprecedented decision to step back from their royal lives—few know the true story of Harry and Meghan.”

Durand and Scobie are described as being “members of the select group of reporters that cover the British Royal Family and their engagements.”

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY WON'T COOPERATE WITH BRITISH TABLOIDS

“For the very first time, Finding Freedom goes beyond the headlines to reveal unknown details of Harry and Meghan’s life together, dispelling the many rumors and misconceptions that plague the couple on both sides of the pond,” the description further states.

Markle, 38, and Harry, 35, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, wed at Windsor Castle in May 2018 after being introduced through a friend about two years earlier. They now share a nearly 1-year-old son, Archie.

In January, the pair announced they would be stepping back from their senior roles in the royal family to split their time between North America and the U.K.

WHAT MADE MEGHAN MARKLE FAMOUS?

As of March 31, they were no longer considered senior royals, but have still kept their titles of duke and duchess.

They have since announced the upcoming creation of a new philanthropic venture, for which they’ve tapped one of Melinda Gates’ former staffers. They have also begun establishing standards for how they expect to be treated, and what they will and will not put up with, in the new phase of their lives.

TEXTS FROM MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY TO HER FATHER REVEALED IN COURT RECORDS

In April, the Sussexes announced they would not cooperate with certain British tabloids, specifically The Sun, the Daily Mail, the Daily Express and the Daily Mirror.

In letters written to editors of each publication, the couple said they would no longer “offer themselves up as currency for an economy of click bait and distortion.” They say stories based on “salacious gossip” have upended the lives of acquaintances and strangers alike.

The letter, released by the couple’s representative, said Harry and Meghan will have “zero engagement” with the newspapers, but says the couple “believe that a free press is a cornerstone to any democracy.”

Harry has long had an uncomfortable relationship with the media, which he blames for the death of his mother, Princess Diana. She died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 while being pursued by paparazzi.

TABLOID WINS INITIAL BATTLE IN PRIVACY ACTION BY UK'S DUCHESS MEGHAN

Markle is enduring her own, separate battle with publishers of the Daily Mail, whom she is suing for invasion of privacy over a 2018 article that included portions of a letter she had written to her father, Thomas Markle. The defendant, Associated Newspapers, denies infringing on Meghan’s privacy.

Harry Dunn's parents' urge Donald Trump to review extradition request

Downing Street backs Harry Dunn’s parents as they urge Donald Trump to review decision to block extradition of their son’s alleged killer Anne Sacoolas

  • Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn have written to US President Donald Trump 
  • Call to review extradition request for Anne Sacoolas is backed by Downing St
  • Lawyers for Mrs Sacoolas have ‘opened up a dialogue with the Foreign Office’
  • Foreign Office came under fire after documents revealed senior diplomat told US Embassy counterpart they should ‘feel able’ to send her back to United States

Downing Street has backed the parents of Harry Dunn in their plea to US President Donald Trump to review the decision to block an extradition request for their son’s alleged killer.

The letter, addressed to Mr Trump and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, comes after it was reported that lawyers acting on behalf of 42-year-old Anne Sacoolas had opened up a dialogue with the Foreign Office earlier this year to work towards a ‘resolution’.

Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn urged Mr Trump and Mr Pompeo to reconsider the decision to refuse the Home Office’s request to extradite Mrs Sacoolas, saying that the UK justice system has ‘fairness at its heart’.

Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn have written to President Donald Trump to ask him to review the decision to block an extradition request for their son’s alleged killer, Anne Sacoolas

Asked if the UK backed the Dunns’ efforts to lobby the US president, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s official spokesman said: ‘Yes, we are very clear that we want Harry’s family to get the justice they deserve.’ 

The move was revealed after it was reported that lawyers acting on behalf of 42-year-old Anne Sacoolas had opened up a dialogue with the Foreign Office earlier this year to work towards a ‘resolution’.

Mr Dunn’s parents urged Mr Trump and US secretary of state Mike Pompeo to reconsider the decision to refuse the Home Office’s request to extradite Mrs Sacoolas, saying that facing the UK justice system would have ‘fairness at its heart’.

Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn met the president at the White House six months ago, where he had hoped they would meet the suspect, who was waiting in a room next door, but they declined to see her.

Asked if the UK Government back the call from the parents of Harry Dunn (pictured), Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesperson said they support them getting ‘the justice they deserve’

They took their campaign for justice to the US in October, two months after Mr Dunn was killed when his motorbike collided with a car outside a US military base in Northamptonshire.

Mrs Sacoolas, the wife of a US intelligence official based at RAF Croughton, claimed diplomatic immunity following the crash and was able to return to her home country, sparking an international controversy.

She was charged with causing the death by dangerous driving of the 19-year-old in December but an extradition request was rejected by Mr Pompeo in January.

The Foreign Office has since come under fire after documents revealed a senior diplomat sent a text message to their US Embassy counterpart saying there was ‘not much mileage’ in Mrs Sacoolas and her family staying in the UK, adding: ‘I think you should feel able to put them on the next flight out.’

Anne Sacoolas (pictured back in the US) was granted diplomatic immunity and fled Britain nearly three weeks after the car she was driving allegedly collided with 19-year-old Harry’s motorbike outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on August 27 

Urging Mr Trump to reconsider the decision to refuse the extradition request, the teenager’s parents said: ‘It is now six months since we met with you, Mr President, in the Oval Office. We hope you are as well as can be in the current difficult circumstances.

‘When we parted last October, you kindly mentioned that you would take a different look at the case and we have not heard from you since.

‘Of course, since then, the UK have sought Mrs Sacoolas’ extradition which has been rejected by Secretary Pompeo.

‘We note from the British press that Mrs Sacoolas’ lawyer has reached out to the Foreign Office here in London and that she is attempting to seek a resolution to the problem. We understand that Mrs Sacoolas must be suffering too.

Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn met the president at the White House six months ago, where he had hoped they would meet the suspect, who was waiting in a room next door, but they declined to see her

‘The purpose of this letter is to ask you please to review your decision to not allow her to return to face the justice system, which as you know has fairness at its heart.

‘As we are sure you can appreciate, it is really the only way forward in the interests of both families and of relations between our two nations which have suffered as a result of the decision.

‘If you allow her to return, we are sure only good can come from it. Otherwise, the problem will never go away. No one is above the law.’

PA Media have reported that the letter has been acknowledged by a senior official at the White House.

Is Prince Harry Still Close to Prince Philip, Despite Megxit?

When Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex announced Megxit in January 2020, it took the British royal family by surprise. Though the royals knew that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were experiencing a great deal of unhappiness in their roles as working royals, they reportedly felt blindsided by the duo announcing their intent to step away from royal life publically.

Since then, most of the royals, including Queen Elizabeth have had a tactile and polite response to the Sussexes’ decision to step back. Now that Prince Harry and Meghan are living in Los Angeles, it seems like some of the tension between them and the remaining royals has eased up.

However, there is one voice that has remained silent during this time. Prince Philip used to be one of the most vocal members of the royal family. However, following his 2017 retirement from public life, he has mostly kept to himself. Has his relationship with his beloved grandson, Prince Harry, changed because of Megxit?

Prince Philip and Prince Harry have always been extremely close

Though he’s been by the queen’s side for over 70 years, the Duke of Edinburgh has always been seen as a rather gruff figure in the public. He’s been known to speak his mind without regard for tack. However, he is beloved by his grandchildren, especially Prince William and Prince Harry.

“You can see how close they are when the male members meet up at Christmas or other events,” royal reporter Philip Dampier told Harper’s Bazaar. “It is touching to see and in contrast to his gruff public image.”

For many who knew the duke’s public persona, it was especially striking to see him with his grandsons. “What I’ve observed–mainly with Prince William and Prince Harry– is the relationship between grandparent and child is a very different one to the relationship between father and son or daughter,” royal correspondent Duncan Larcombe explained to Harper’s Bazaar.” Philip is the epitome of stiff upper lip–he is never photographed crying or showing emotion publicly. But his relationship with the boys is much warmer.”

Prince Philip was not happy about Megxit

Though the Duke of Edinburgh was initially apprehensive about Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, he did warm up to her. “The Duke of Edinburgh really got on with her,” a source told Express. “He liked Meghan’s personality, so he felt it was OK if she dated his grandson. The reason he liked her was because she was very bold.”

However, it seems like Megxit was much too bold of a move, even for the duke. “I strongly doubt that he would have made a special appearance as he has a strong sense of duty and he would not have endorsed their wish for independence and certainly not the way they handled it,” royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express. “He had his own struggles against at establishment figures who didn’t like him or want him involved in matters of state when she ascended the throne. His (Prince Philip) views may be from a different generation, but since he is 99 in June it would have been a charming gesture if Harry and Meghan had brought Archie to see him and the Queen, who, after all, is 94 in April.”

It has been reported that the Susssexes were unable to see Prince Philip during their final royal engagements, which many assumed hinted at a rift between them and the 98-year-old Duke.

Prince Philip and Prince Harry are still close

Though they might disagree about Megxit, it is doubtful that the grandfather and grandson’s relationship is shattered as a result. In fact, we do know that tensions between the Sussexes and the royals have eased considerably amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“Things are in a better space now between the couple and the royal family,” an insider told Entertainment Tonight. “While of course there have been tensions, the family is getting through it.”

Also, we do know that the Sussexes and baby Archie video chatted with the queen for her 94th birthday on April 21. Since she is quarantining with Prince Philip at Windsor Castle, the duke was presumably on the call as well. Despite the eight-hour time difference, Vanity Fair is reporting that the Sussexes along with Archie spoke to the queen during her tea time.

It appears that all is well.
