Meghan Markle stayed back in California, while Prince Harry flew to London because she ‘doesn’t want to be the centre of attention’ at Prince Philip’s funeral, her friends claim.
Despite Meghan declining to return to London with Harry to join his family in mourning for the late Duke of Edinburgh, friends say she and Prince Philip ‘had a special bond and she adored him.’
In addition to not wanting the spotlight, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson previously confirmed that Meghan ‘has been advised by her physician not to travel’ because she is around six months pregnant.
However Meghan had previously flown to America while being 7 months pregnant in 2019!
‘Meghan said her main concern right now is supporting Harry. She said she left it up to him as to whether or not she would attend the funeral,
‘Meghan said it’s during these times when family should come together, put their differences aside and unite as one. She said this is what Prince Philip would want and that she’s willing to forgive and move forward,’ they said.
