The successor of Queen Elizabeth II has just made it clear that he does not intend to repair the relationship with his son, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle. Charles III decided to remove the couple from the guest list during a ceremonial meeting with the world’s most important leaders, scheduled for Sunday.
They were banned from entering
The funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, who died a week ago, is scheduled for the following Monday. In the last journey, monarchs will have more than family and millions of people watching TV. The most important world leaders will also appear in London, including the President of the United States, Joe Biden, who the day before will take part in a ceremonial meeting at Buckingham Palace with the new King Charles III.
The monarchs will be accompanied by family members, however, on the guest list you will not find the king’s younger son, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.
They did so at their own request
In a statement issued by Buckingham Palace, it was announced that, in addition to world leaders, only members of the British Royal Family would attend the ceremony. Meghan and Harry did not receive an invitation because in 2020 they themselves decided to resign from official duties towards the British crown.
Prince Andrzej will also be absent from the Sunday meeting, who was deprived of privileges by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, due to numerous controversies and scandals.
Children won’t get titles
Not being invited to a very important meeting at the palace is not the only disappointment Meghan and Harry have had recently. Until recently, the British press reported that the couple’s children, Archie and Lilibet, could soon receive princely titles. Meghan Markle complained about the fact that their children did not receive them still in a memorable interview with Oprah Winfrey.
As reported, formally the children of Meghan and Prince Harry can now use princely titles, under the rules established by King George V in 1917. It turns out, however, that the new king, Charles III, is very reluctant to formally include Meghan’s children and Harry to the ranks of the British royal family.
As reported by The Sun, Archie and Lilibet may use the princely title but will not be formally recognized as “their princely heights”. This is because the children of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry cannot perform duties under the monarchy, so there is no need to consider them as full members of the royal family. This means that the couple’s children will not be entitled to any royal privileges, including protection, which is said to be the most important thing for the couple.
“Harry and Meghan were worried about protection, and the status of prince and princess for their children would put them in a secure position. The discussions went on for a long time and they insisted that Archie and Lilibet should be considered royals. “Only use titles. They’re furious, but conditions have been set for them – Archie and Lilibet may be princes, but without the titles of” their princely heights, “said whistleblower” The Sun “.
