Queen Elizabeth Meghan Markle Prince Harry

It’s been two years since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped down as senior royals and moved across the world to Hollywood. Now, Queen Elizabeth’s true feelings about their “Megxit” have allegedly been revealed.

Queen Could ‘See How Unhappy Harry And Meghan Were’

Fox News reported that in her new book “The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor – the Truth and the Turmoil,” former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown wrote that the Queen could “see how unhappy Harry and Meghan were,” but the royal family wanted their exit to set the “right precedent.”

One source in the palace told Brown that the 96-year-old Queen was “genuinely very conflicted” about Meghan and Harry wanting to leave the royal family.

“The family saw the split coming only months later, in the summer of 2019,” the insider said. “They could all see how unhappy Harry and Meghan were. Everybody was supportive of them leaving. But they wanted it done in an orderly way. And they also wanted it done in a way that set the right precedent. William’s got three kids. The precedent they set for this generation would affect his children. He’s very mindful of that. So they wanted it done properly.”

Harry And Meghan Step Back From Royal Life

Brown alleged that while it was Harry who made the decision to step back from royal life, the move was made “in acceleration from Meghan.”

“I thought one of the best things that Meghan could do for Harry was to take him out of royal life because he was just so unhappy for so long,” said the source. “He needed a wife to come in and say, ‘Actually the best thing for you is that I take you out of this.'”

However, the insider went on to say that Meghan and Harry’s initial suggestion of a part-time arrangement would only create a conflict of interest for the royal family. 

“If, say, the high-visibility couple tacked a few days of shooting a paid Netflix documentary onto the back of a Foreign Office-funded Commonwealth tour, there would be an uproar – just as [Prince] Andrew saw when he mixed business sidebars with his trade ambassador trips,” Brown wrote. “Ethics issues of this kind have killed many a promising political career and are red meat for the media.”

Meghan And Harry Go Hollywood 

Meghan and Harry have since moved to Hollywood, where they have signed lucrative deals to create content for Netflix and Spotify. They have also regularly bashed the royal family, implying that the royals are racist and insensitive towards mental health, among other things. 

While the Queen may have initially been “conflicted” about Meghan and Harry’s exit, one can’t help but think that after everything that’s happened, she’s relieved to be rid of them now.
