Meghan Markle reportedly sent a letter to King Charles III asking him to meet one-on-one
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are said to have returned from the UK on Wednesday September 21, almost two weeks after originally planning to return to California after a mini European tour which was due to end on Thursday September 8. Ultimately, of course, that day became the day the world will remember forever: the day the Queen died peacefully at Balmoral Castle at age 96.
According to reports from several outlets, before they left, Meghan asked her father-in-law, King Charles III, to have a private chat in hopes of ‘clearing the air’, sending a letter detailing his meeting request. A source said OKAY that Meghan wanted the discussion to take place sometime after the Queen’s funeral, which took place on Monday, September 19.
“That’s right, Meghan one-on-one with King Charles,” journalist Neil Sean said, according to the outlet. “You heard it right. It’s a very brave decision on the part of Meghan herself.
Meghan apparently wanted to “explain some of the rationale for this [she and Harry] have done over the past two years,” he continued. “Now you know, you have to admire Meghan’s self-confidence, whatever you think.”
It is still unclear whether the conversation took place, as there was only one full day – Tuesday September 20 – between the Queen’s funeral on Monday and their departure for home on Wednesday.
“Meghan and Harry will not be staying after the Queen’s funeral and plan to return to California,” a source said. “Obviously they weren’t prepared to stay in the UK for so long. It’s been an emotional and heartbreaking week but naturally they’re looking forward to reuniting with Lilibet and Archie. It’s been the longest period of time where they were separated from their children all at once.
However, according to Page 6another source denied that Meghan’s request took place, calling it an “outright lie”.
