Meghan Markle ‘ready to forgive’ the Royal Family after Prince Philip’s death
Meghan Markle is reportedly "ready to forgive" the Royal Family after the racism row sparked by her Oprah Winfrey interview, a friend has claimed.
It comes after the Duchess of Sussex made the bombshell claim that there had been "concerns and conversations about how dark [Archie's] skin might be when he was born," from a member of the Royal Family.
Prince Harry’s brother Prince William reacted by saying the royals are "very much not a racist family" and in a statement responding to Meghan’s accusation, the Palace said, "recollections may vary".
At the time Prince Harry and Meghan refused to say who made the comment – but Oprah later clarified that it had not been the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh.
Now, an anonymous source claiming to be a close friend of Meghan’s has told the Daily Mail that in the wake of Prince Philip's death, Meghan wants to reconcile with her husband’s family.
"Meghan said it's during these times when family should come together, put their differences aside and unite as one,” they said.
"She said this is what Prince Philip would want and that she's willing to forgive and move forward."
The source also claimed that Meghan had declined to join Prince Harry at his grandpa's funeral because she "doesn't want to be the centre of attention".
They added "Meghan said her main concern right now is supporting Harry. She said she left it up to him as to whether or not she would attend the funeral."
Buckingham Palace has previously stated that the Duchess of Sussex had been "advised by her physician not to travel" because she is heavily pregnant.
The source also said that Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, was "adamant" that she shouldn't travel for the sake of her unborn baby’s health.
Meghan has remained at home in Montecito, Santa Barbara and while Doria lives in Los Angeles, it's believed that the social worker has temporarily moved into Harry and Meghan’s nine bedroomed £11.2 million property in order to be with her daughter.
Harry flew into the UK at the weekend and is currently staying at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, where he and Meghan previously lived.
After the Sussexes moved across the Atlantic it emerged Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank had moved into Frogmore with their growing family.
Harry is technically supposed to be self-isolating until after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral on Saturday 17 April but is understood to be taking advantage of the government guidance which states: "You can leave your place of self-isolation in limited circumstances, including on compassionate grounds.
"This includes attending a funeral of a household member, a close family member or a friend (if neither household member nor close family member can attend the funeral). You must continue to self-isolate at all other times."
