Queen Elizabeth’s favorite grandchild is allegedly not Prince William.
According to National Enquirer, Her Majesty was hurt over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s deliberate snub on her 94th birthday.
A source told the tabloid that Prince William asked Prince Harry to return to the United Kingdom to surprise the Queen. However, the Duke of Sussex refused because he remembers how the royal family treated his wife.
The insider claimed that Prince Harry hurt the Queen, who is dying of heart failure. Her Majesty allegedly only has a few more months to live.
“Harry is her favorite grandchild and his split with the royal family has left her heartbroken. She was in tears when she learned of Harry’s rejection. After all, how many more birthdays will she have?” the source said.
Even though the Queen helped Prince Harry and Markle in various ways, a palace aide claimed that the royal couple doesn’t think that this is enough.
“I don’t think Meghan will ever forgive the Queen for stripping them of their HRH titles and barring them from using ‘royal’ in their commercial moneymaking branding.
She was already seething because the royals – especially William and Kate – never welcomed her as the Hollywood superstar she thinks she is,” the source said.
The insider claimed that Markle asked Prince Harry to confront Prince William about it. However, it just resulted in the royal siblings exploding in an argument.
According to the source, the Duchess of Sussex has hated Prince William since day one. And she and Middleton got into a shocking showdown after the latter tried to encourage the former to follow palace protocols.
However, the claims made by the tabloid are incorrect. Prince Harry and Prince William didn’t get into a massive fight because of the Queen’s birthday.
The 94-year-old is self-isolating in Windsor Castle due to the coronavirus pandemic. And it is a known fact that she didn’t celebrate her birthday outdoors. As such, there is no reason for Prince Harry to fly to the United Kingdom to surprise his grandmother.
It is also untrue that Markle is angry at Her Majesty. Even though she and Prince Harry were stripped off their royal titles, the royal couple called the Queen on her birthday.
According to more reliable sources, Prince Harry and Markle FaceTimed with the monarch. The Queen also had the opportunity to see Archie during their morning call.
