Prince Harry: My father told me not to bring Meghan while Queen Elizabeth was dying

Tell King Charles Prince Harrythat his wife, Megan Markle, was not welcome at Balmoral, on the day Queen Elizabeth died, according to the latest claim from the Duke of Sussex’s memoirs, according to the “Russia Today” network, quoting the Daily Mail.

In his new autobiography, Spear, Harry said his father had ordered him not to bring his wife to visit Queen Elizabeth II, who was dying, citing “illogical and disrespectful” reasons.

Harry responded angrily to Charles’ snub: “Never speak of my wife like that!”, prompting the king to now apologize.

Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, were in London for the WellChild Awards when the Queen’s health deteriorated at her Scottish home.

And at 1:55pm on September 8, just 90 minutes after Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen was unwell, a spokesperson for the couple confirmed they would travel to Balmoral together.

Hours later, however, a clarification was issued stating that the Duke would be traveling alone, and flew on a private jet to Scotland, arriving in Balmoral shortly after the Queen’s death was announced.

Harry claimed in his memoirs that he had received instructions directly from Prince Charles at the time not to bring Meghan. In a poignant clip, the Duke describes how he learned of the Queen’s death after checking the BBC news website. But he was furious at his father’s demand that he leave the Duchess of Sussex behind.

At the time, a source claimed Harry was still at Frogmore Cottage when he received a call from his father asking Meghan to stay home.

A source said: “Charles has told Harry that it is not right or appropriate that Meiyan is in Balmoral at such a very sad time.”

He added: “It was indicated that Kate would not go and that the presence should be restricted to the closest family members only.”

On his arrival at Balmoral, Harry was greeted by Princess Anne, who then took him to the room where the late Queen’s body lay.

After 12 hours of mourning, the Duke left Balmoral with his father and brother. He was photographed alone in the back of his Range Rover on his way to Aberdeen Airport at 9:20am on 9 September.

In his memoirs, Harry outlined a number of conversations he shared with his father, in which Charles is said to have expressed negative feelings towards Meghan.

In one sensational claim, Harry accused his father of fearing he would be overshadowed by Meghan’s star, and expressed his fears about having to support her financially.

Harry said Charles had warned him that his family was “not made of money” and that he could not provide for anyone else. But Harry felt that Charles’ anxiety was less rooted in economics and more in jealousy.

The prince said he thought ironically of telling his father that the cost of providing Meghan with food and shelter was minimal, given that she doesn’t have a big appetite and can make her own clothes.

And sources have reported that the king hopes to one day reconcile with his youngest son, despite the allegations made against him in the book, with the hope that Harry will attend his coronation on May 6.

The royal family has so far remained silent on Harry’s allegations, and palace sources have suggested the mudslinging must end before any reconciliation can take place.
