Prince Harry and Meghan Refuse Queen’s Christmas Invite – Here’s Why!
Royal family experts have predicted that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would visit Queen Elizabeth for Christmas. And with her recent health scare, that prediction seemed even more likely to become true. But now new reports claim that the Duchess of Sussex and Duke of Sussex have refused the Queen’s holiday invitation!
Why would Meghan and Harry decline a royal invitation? Find out the answer below.
Queen Elizabeth Invites Meghan And Harry To Christmas
For some, an invitation from Queen Elizabeth feels more like a summons than a request. But Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly didn’t agree with that philosophy. As a result, the Duchess of Sussex and Duke of Sussex allegedly promptly refused to make the trip from their California home to the Queen’s U.K. palace.
From the perspective of the Queen, this upcoming Christmas will feel challenging. After all, this holiday celebration will mark the very first time that Queen Elizabeth will celebrate without her beloved husband Prince Philip, who died in April 2021. And the loss of her husband, combined with health scares, seemed like it might cause Prince Harry at least to decide to comfort his grandmother on Christmas.
But a report from Yahoo claims that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are “not coming to the U.K. for Christmas with the Queen.” That report contradicts previous speculation that the Duke of Sussex, 37 and Duchess of Sussex, 40, would take their son Archie, 2, and daughter Lilibet, 5-months-old, to visit the Queen. Her Royal Majesty reportedly has already sent her invitation to the couple.
Why Won’t Prince Harry And Meghan Visit Queen For Christmas?
Insiders claim that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won’t RSVP for one key reason. The Duchess of Sussex and Duke of Sussex fear getting attacked by a media backlash if they head to the U.K.
“I think everyone understands there will be a frenzy when they both come back to the UK, but they need to rip the [Band-Aid] off and get on with it,” claimed one impatient royal family insider. However, Meghan and Harry have avoided spending Christmas with any royal family members since 2018.
In the past, their reasons have varied. For instance, in 2019, Meghan and Harry decided to stay with their son Archie in Canada for Christmas. And in 2020, the Duke of Sussex and Duchess of Sussex could not visit the royal family due to the pandemic lock-down. The COVID-10 travel restrictions required them to remain in California rather than visit the United Kingdom.
Of course, it’s not too late for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to change their minds and surprise the Queen with a holiday visit in 2021. Do you think that Harry should visit his grandmother this year? Share your views with us. And then check back on our site for all the royal family news.
If only Harry had the courage to stand up for himself. Megan is not welcome anywhere in the UK. But Harry could bring both children with him,they would be more than welcome,If only her majesty saw her great grandchildren (if they exist) on only a couple of times she would be so pleased,it would make her Christmas.
If only Harry had the nerve to stand up for himself and come home to the UK and bring the two children with him.Her majesty would be so happy to see her two great grandchildren it would make her Christmas the best ever. I am praying for you your majesty
I feel sorry for the Queen first Christmas without her husband! At the age of 93 no telling how many Christmas she has left. You would think that her grandson Harry would put her first at this time in her life.
It’s his lose and if something does happen to the Queen his grandmother he will pay his whole life! Remember you can’t go backwards once you do something that will hurt her. When she’s no longer near it’s to LATE!
He isn’t strong enough to do what he should. Pity.
Pleasd they staying in USA. Not wanted by RF.
Courtesy invite only 🙄🙄
Harry has to be the most hen pecked man on earth! You’d think if Meghan can make every talk show on US TV, she be able to work up the nerve to face the British press. BTW, where is the female child? If there is one.
One cannot believe the disrespect and zero gratitude
Truly he never worked and he has been living without working and providing for his family with moneys he never worked and he never earned. Appreciation and gratitude is an attribute of self value!!!
They wanted PRIVACY, but they have poured everything for everyone to know, but no pictures holding, hugging, as parents of the two children they say they have?? That is privacy of demand and covering up!! Philanthropist of only using the name;;; Hypocrites to the maximum degree!
