Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, may be back in California with her son Archie Harrison, but she found a way to make sure that she was present in Windsor for her grandfather-in-law Prince Philip’s funeral. The Telegraph reports that Meghan, who is pregnant with her second baby, created a handwritten note for one of nine family wreaths that have been laid out in St. George’s Chapel. The wreath is said to have come from a florist that is known for its locally sourced flower arrangements. The publication has also said that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had asked for specific flowers that included rosemary, lavender, and Bear’s breeches, which is the national flower of Greece.
Meghan has repeatedly said that she had wanted to be in the U.K. for the funeral but was advised against attending because she is heavily pregnant. Vanity Fair says a source close to the Duchess of Sussex says that: “She would have put all the family tension aside to be there with Harry,” even though they were “still not on amazing terms with the family.”
Princes William and Harry were separated by their cousin Peter Phillips during the funeral march
Meghan Markle may be worried about her husband, but Prince Harry has reportedly started trying to mend fences with his family. Page Six reported that before the funeral, Harry met with his cousin Princess Eugenie, who is living in Harry and Meghan’s old home, Frogmore Cottage, and Prince Philip’s funeral actually had marked the first time Harry was seen in public with his father Prince Charles and brother Prince William since March 2020.
The brothers took part in their grandfather’s funeral march separated by their older cousin Peter Phillips. Harper’s Bazaar says it was planned for the brothers to sit apart during the funeral service itself; Prince William was to sit next to his cousin Peter, while Prince Harry was to sit next to his cousin, Lord Snowdon. It was also reported that the arrangements were approved by their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
