It’s not really a shock that Meghan Markle is not attending the funeral of Prince Phillip.
Nobody – and I mean nobody – would want her around after that ghastly Oprah interview where she basically labeled the entire Royal family the British KKK chapter.
Even so, it’s shocking.
Mediaite reported that Meghan will not attend the funeral of recently deceased Prince Philip, under advice from her doctor.
She’s pregnant right now.
And actually, she’s pretty far along, so I can see how flying wouldn’t be the best idea.
Although it’s not publically known what the exact due date is, Yahoo Life reported that an unnamed source confirmed that the new royal baby will be making its grand entrance at the end of spring.
Many international airlines restrict travel for pregnant women at 26 weeks.
Regardless of the reason, I sure everyone is taking a deep sign of relief.
Having Harry there will likely be awkward enough – if the puppet master was by his side, it’d really get sticky.
The BBC reports that Harry will be flying in from the US for his grandfather’s funeral which will take place on April 17th. The piece goes on to say that there will be eight days of national mourning ahead of the televised funeral, which will be a ceremonial event rather than a large state affair usually associated with the death of a monarch.
Prince Philip will also not lie in state – where members of the public would have been able to view his coffin.
A spokesman for the Palace said: “Whilst this is a time of sadness and mourning the coming days will be an opportunity to celebrate a remarkable life.”
Only 30 people – expected to be the duke’s children, grandchildren, and other close family members – will attend the ceremony as guests, but Prince Harry’s wife the Duchess of Sussex has been advised by her doctor not to travel for the funeral, the spokesman added.
Harry and Meghan posted an online tribute to Prince Phillip here.
In addition, the Royal Family out this statement:
It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

Without Meghan there, the Royals will be able to mourn and grieve their loss without all the drama and chaos that tends to follow Meghan around.
