Royal Family Revelations From Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s Biography ‘Finding Freedom’ – Fame10
Commonwealth Day was very stressful for the entire royal family
Another revelation from the book surrounds the internal relationships and dynamics within Meghan and Harry’s final royal appearances. Through official statements it seemed as if Queen Elizabeth and the royal family were in support of Meghan and Harry, however, behind closed doors, this wasn’t entirely the case.
Commonwealth Day was a significant moment in time for the royal family and according to the biography, Meghan was left “emotionally bruised and exhausted” after the event because her sister-in-law Kate wouldn’t even acknowledge her. The book claims, “While Harry and Meghan both greeted William and Kate with smiles, the Cambridges showed little response. It was the first time the two couples had seen each other since January. ‘Harry,’ William nodded, ignoring Meghan.”
“For the minutes before the Queen’s arrival, William and Kate sat with their backs to the couple, only turning around to chat with Prince Edward and [his wife] Sophie, next to the Sussexes. Although Meghan tried to make eye contact with Kate, the duchess barely acknowledged her.”
