Royal insiders blast Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's 'love-bombing' of Royals as 'bizarre' amid Christmas invite claims | The Sun

INSIDERS have blasted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's "love-bombing" of the Royals as "bizarre" following claims the couple haven't been invited to Christmas at Sandringham.

The couple last spent Christmas with the royal family at Sandringham in 2018 before their acrimonious move to the US.

And it's been claimed the couple haven't been invited to the UK to celebrate the holidays – despite a source telling The Sunday Times that the Sussexes would be open to Christmas with the Royals.

But the timings around Christmas celebrations have been questioned – with a source telling the MailOnline that the sudden desire to build bridges was "bizarre" and amounts to "love-bombing".

Just last week, it was revealed Harry called Charles from his California home to wish his father a happy 75th birthday.

It was the first time the father and son had spoken since April – and sources claim they will now continue to "mend the family rift".

Sweet details were revealed, including that the Duke of Sussex also shared a cute video of Archie, 4, and Lilibet, 2, singing happy birthday to their great-grandfather.

Reports have also resurfaced, suggesting that Meghan Markle has been "keeping in touch" with King Charles and giving him updates and pics of the kids.

Author Omid Scobie admitted that there is a "willingness there" from Meghan to have her children bond with their great-grandfather.

And it's been suggested there is a "reconciliation strategy" behind the insights between the Sussexes and Royals in the UK.

A source said: "It seems as if they are really doubling down on their reconciliation strategy.

"It's so bizarre to have behaved so badly, demanded an apology and an admission of 'guilt' — to no avail, I might add — from the family and now suggest they'll just waltz back in and allow bygones to be bygones if only someone would be good enough invite them."

The insider pointed out the couple had invitations from both Queen Elizabeth and King Charles to join the family at Balmoral in the summer – but had chosen not to visit since 2018.

They added: "Which begs the question, why now? Is it something to do with the fact that some of their commercial deals, such as Spotify, have fallen around their ears and they have been subject to ridicule in the U.S. in shows such as South Park and Family Guy?

"Could it be that they have realised moaning about how awful being a member of the Royal Family is, isn't such a great strategy after all?"

Earlier this year Charles ordered Harry and Meghan to vacate Frogmore Cottage, their home in Windsor.

They now reportedly need a "formal invitation" to be able to stay with the royals on "protected property".

But sources close to the Sussexes hailed the "fruitful" call last week as a "turning point".

While Harry, 39, hasn’t seen his dad since Charles’s Coronation in May, despite being in the UK in September, the monarch is said to be keeping the door open for his “dear boy”.

Queen Camilla and Prince William are said to be more wary and have advised Charles to not engage with Harry after he blasted the Royal Family and the UK on Netflix and in Spare.

Harry and Charles reportedly have not spoken face to face since Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in September last year and it is known the king has previously been reluctant to take Harry’s calls following rows over Megxit and his money.

Harry’s camp actively made it known he was going to call his father ahead of the call last week.

The Sussexes have been approached for comment.
