It seems as though Queen Elizabeth II had a lot more thoughts about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship than people first thought. Broadcaster and friend of the elder royals Gyles Brandreth’s upcoming biography called Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait detailed exactly how the Queen allegedly felt about Harry and Meghan’s romance.
Now, despite what many believe, Brandreth claims that the Queen was delighted with Harry and Meghan marrying, because he seemed very happy, and that she felt Meghan’s contribution would make to the family’s public appearance.
However, Brandreth also alleged that the Queen felt as though Harry was blinded by love a bit, saying he’s “perhaps a little over-in-love” with Meghan, per Daily Mail. Her worries reportedly grew even more after his and Meghan’s infamous Oprah interview, but she dismissed the interview as “television nonsense.”
As many people know, Harry and Meghan started dating in July 2016 after meeting on a blind date. They got engaged a year later and married in a gorgeous royal ceremony in 2018. They have two children together named Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1.
It’s unclear as to what Queen Elizabeth II felt before she passed away in Sept 2022, but many royal onlookers are anxiously awaiting what more Brandreth has to say about the late Queen’s mindsets. While we patiently await Brandreth’s biography to come out on Dec 8, we can read more about Harry and Meghan’s love story.
