Queen allegedly said ‘thank goodness’ to Meghan Markle missing Philip’s funeral

Queen Elizabeth II allegedly expressed relief over Meghan Markle not attending Prince Philip’s funeral.

“Thank goodness Meghan is not coming,” the monarch allegedly told her trusted aides inside the chapel of Windsor Castle on the day of her late husband’s funeral in April 2021, according to an excerpt from Tom Bower’s new book, “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors” (via The Sunday Times).

The Duke of Edinburgh died at the age of 99 in April 2021 after being married to the Queen, 96, for 73 years

Harry returned to attend Philip’s funeral sans Markle — who was heavily pregnant with Lilibet at the time and therefore stayed in the US.

At the funeral, Harry reunited with his brother Prince William for the first time since he moved to the States amid their family drama. The brothers were seen interacting after the funeral amid their feud.
