Royal aides have been left bewildered by the sheer audacity of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they requested a meeting with the Queen.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly hoping to introduce the Queen to their daughter Lilibet, who was born earlier this year on June 4.
However, a source told a newspaper outlet that no meeting had been agreed upon yet and that it had left Royal aides shocked, given the pair’s interview with Oprah Winfrey only months ago.
The source told the publication that Harry and Meghan had made this offer but that a lot of people were shocked by the absolute nerve of it, and that they may genuinely want to see the Queen but it’s breathtaking given what they’d put her through.
Her Majesty’s staff haven’t answered so far, but there’s been discussion about Christmas, and whether an invitation should be sent to Harry and Meghan after they refused one last year.
It was said that the Queen is still very fond of Harry, and would like to see Lilibet and her brother Archie.
A newspaper outlet has approached Buckingham Palace and representatives of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for comment.
Earlier this year, the Sussexes announced the birth of their second child together and announced she had been given the middle name, Diana, to honour her beloved late grandmother.
Harry and Meghan both took several months off work to care for Lilibet after she was born, and their eldest son Archie was reportedly delighted about the arrival of his little sister.
The olive branch from Harry and Meghan comes as furious palace aides are hunting for the source behind the profoundly disturbing exposure of top-secret plans that are to be enacted when the Queen departs.
The details of Operation London Bridge, including ministerial protocols and funeral arrangements, were published yesterday morning in a move described by Whitehall insiders as disturbing, unnecessary and upsetting.
The plans for the huge operation were only shared with a tiny group of people and reveals that all Whitehall flags must be lowered to half-mast within ten minutes followed by a TV address and UK tour by Prince Charles and a pre-planned memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral for ministers that will be made to look spontaneous.
If the Queen does decide to send an invite to Harry and Meghan for Christmas, and she does agree to meet Harry and Meghan, she might lose a lot of public support.
Harry might be her grandson, but he’s done a lot of damage to the Monarchy, and the fact that they have the nerve to ask for this meeting after their disgusting, non-stop betrayal over the last two years, does make you wonder if the Queen will agree to a meeting with them, but when all said and done, Archie and Lilibet are her great-grandchildren, and there’s no getting away from that, and sometimes blood is thicker than water.
Of course, the meeting will be held behind closed doors, and perhaps she should have witnesses there, and Harry and Meghan be made to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement.
The Queen is a 95-year-old woman who doesn’t need the drama, and what she should be doing is relaxing and putting her feet up and enjoying herself, letting everyone else get on with it.
Once the Queen passes away, then you will see things come out of the woodwork, but it won’t matter by then because either Prince Charles or his son William will have to deal with all the gossip.
