Queen Elizabeth tragically passed away today at the age of 96 after a record-breaking seventy years on the British throne. Sadly, much of her final years were spent dealing with controversies that can be linked back to Meghan Markle, the American actress who married the Queen’s grandson Prince Harry back in 2018.

Meghan And Queen Had Solid Start

When Meghan’s engagement to Harry was announced back in November of 2017, she was quick to praise the Queen, indicating to the public that their relationship would be a positive one in the years to come. 

“She’s an incredible woman,” Markle told the BBC of the Queen in a joint interview with Harry.

“To be able to meet her through his lens, not just with his honor and respect for her as the monarch, but the love that he has for her as his grandmother … all of those layers have been so important for me so that when I met her, I had such a deep understanding and of course incredible respect for being able to have that time with her,” she added. 

In March of last year, Meghan talked to CBS. News about a trip that she took with the Queen to Cheshire, England.

“We were in the car going between engagements,” she recalled. “And she has a blanket that sits across her knees for warmth, and it was chilly. And she was like, ‘Meghan, come on,’ and put it over my knees as well … and it made me think of my grandmother, where she’s always been warm and inviting and really welcoming.”  

The Queen even broke royal protocol for Meghan in 2017 by inviting her to celebrate Christmas with the royal family, something that royal fiancés are not typically invited to do.

Things Go Downhill 

Meghan and Harry married in May of 2018, and while things seemed alright for awhile, they went downhill by 2020, when the couple announced that they would be stepping down as senior royals. The New York Post reported that the Queen and the rest of the royal family were “incandescent with rage” over the fact that they felt Meghan and Harry did not give them the proper heads-up before doing this. 

“This is a declaration of war on the family,” a senior source told The Sun at the time.

While the Queen refrained from speaking out against the couple, a source told US Weekly in 2021 that she was not happy about their decision to move across the world to California, where Meghan is from.

“The queen was hoping that they’d return, but there is not much she can do about it and accepts their decisions,” the publication’s source said. 

Meghan Attacks Royal Family

Perhaps the worst blow from Meghan came in March of last year, when she disrespected the Queen by giving an explosive tell-all interview in which she bashed the royal family repeatedly to Oprah Winfrey. During this interview, she accused the royal family of racism and being insensitive to mental health struggles, among other things. Meghan’s interview was so devastating that it caused the hashtag #AbolishTheMonarchy to trend on Twitter.

The Queen responded in a statement through Buckingham Palace, saying, “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.” She pointedly added that “recollections may vary,” which was clearly her polite way of saying that some of what Meghan said in the interview was untrue.

Back in June, during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations that were meant to mark the Queen’s record-breaking seventy years on the British throne, the monarch allegedly made sure that Meghan and Harry were seated away from Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton so that they could not steal attention from her event.

Royal biographer Tom Bower claimed that when Harry asked an usher who had made this seating arrangement, he was told, “Your grandmother.”

Meghan Disrespects Queen In Final Weeks Of Her Life

Even last month, in what turned out to be the final weeks of the Queen’s life, Meghan was still publicly bashing her family. In a scathing interview with New York Magazine’s the Cut, Meghan said she was “happy” to leave the royal family, as she felt she had gotten her freedom back, and to post about it too. She whined that when she was a royal, her Instagram account @KensingtonRoyal was tightly controlled.

“It was a big adjustment — a huge adjustment to go from that kind of autonomy to a different life,” Markle said, adding that she didn’t like not being in control of what photos of her family would go to the press.

“There’s literally a structure by which if you want to release photos of your child, as a member of the family, you first have to give them to the Royal Rota,” she explained. “Why would I give the very people that are calling my children the N-word a photo of my child before I can share it with the people that love my child?”

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee ‘Bittersweet’ For Meghan

Meghan also said that she felt that she and Harry had no choice but to leave the royal family because “just by existing, we were upsetting the dynamic of the hierarchy.”

Markle even went so far as to complain that attending the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which was a truly historic event, was “bittersweet” for her. 

It’s unfortunate that so much of the Queen’s time in her final years was spent dealing with attacks being lodged at her and her fellow royals by a self-centered, Left-wing, D-list Hollywood actress who sadly managed to infiltrate her family. While we are devastated by the Queen’s death, we’re glad that she is finally at peace, and that she’s in a place where Meghan Markle can never hurt her again.
