It appears that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are keen to make amends with the royals after the family came together in shared grief over the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
Like many in Windsor, Meghan expressed deep sorrow at the British monarch’s funeral, officiated at Westminster Abbey, on September 19.
Archie and Lilibet’s mother even cried before the eyes of the whole world, an episode that was not entirely well received by royal fans, who accused her of taking advantage of her histrionic abilities to fake her sadness.
However, despite the controversy caused by “Megxit”, the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family appeared united in pain. Anxious to ease tensions within the clan, after the queen’s funeral and before her return to California, United States, Meghan would have requested a “private audience” with King Charles III.
According to royal correspondent Neil Sean, who has worked for NBC News, MSNBC and Access Hollywood, A “very good source” revealed that the 41-year-old duchess wrote a letter requesting an individual interview with the new monarch, a meeting that would serve as “an opportunity to clarify things”.
Now he would like to have a private audience with King Charles III before returning to California. You heard right: Meghan, alone with King Charles III. The interesting thing is that, according to this good source, this request was made ex officio.
In addition, Sean praised Meghan’s initiative, whom he said was “very brave” in seeking a private moment with the British sovereign:
It’s a very brave move on Meghan’s part. You have to admire her self-esteem, whatever you think of her. It will be an opportunity to explain some of the reasons behind what they have done in the last two years.
However, according to another anonymous source, it would be “very unlikely” that Meghan would bother her father-in-law during this period of mourning and his first days as sovereign. Another anonymous insider also said it would be “strange” to see the Duchess write a letter to the monarch when Prince Harry has the means to communicate with him directly.
On the other hand, according to Daily Mailsources close to Carlos III reported that the meeting would take place in the following days, since the monarch wants to heal his relationship with his son and Meghan, so it is “very unlikely” that he ignores such a request.
In fact, during the funeral, both he and William tried to involve him as much as possible in the formal activities. The new Prince of Wales, holding his children George and Charlotte by the hand, even beckoned Harry and Meghan to join them during the church service. The symbol, for some observers, of a strong desire for reconciliation.
