Meghan Markle Had to Win Back Queen Elizabeth’s Trust After This Royal Blunder
Meghan Markle wasn’t on the best terms with Queen Elizabeth following her extravagant baby shower in New York earlier this year. Inside sources claim that Her Majesty was very disappointed with the shower and the negative press it generated. Markle has had the better part of a year to win back Queen Elizabeth’s trust, and her recent trip to New York proves that she has learned a thing or two since giving birth to Archie.
Meghan Markle breaks Queen Elizabeth’s trust
Markle took a lot of heat for throwing a baby shower in New York. Although the royal family did not pay for the event, pundits argued that it was not something you normally see from a royal.
Not only did the shower cost thousands of dollars to pull off, but it also featured a slew of celebrities, including Markle’s good friend, Serena Williams. With some of Hollywood’s elite in attendance, the only thing the shower was missing was a red carpet.
Members of the royal family usually keep a tight lid on things and do not like to draw attention to themselves, unless it is a scheduled public appearance.
Apart from the financial aspects of the party, Queen Elizabeth was reportedly unhappy with how it made headlines around the world. The coverage was not very positive, which did not go over well with Her Majesty.
While sources claim that Queen Elizabeth was disappointed by Markle’s actions, she has won back her trust over the past six months.
How did Markle win back Queen Elizabeth?
According to International Business Times, palace advisors told Markle that she needs to keep things more low-key, especially when she visits America.
That’s exactly what Meghan Markle did a few weeks back when she visited New York to attend Williams’ tennis match at the U.S. Open.
“This trip was the opposite of the last trip to New York City, Meghan did not stay in a fancy hotel and she did not go out after the tennis match with Serena and her family. Instead, Meghan kept a really low-profile, with the exception of going to a yoga class, naturally,” a source revealed.
The source added that Markle stayed out of the public eye for the majority of the trip and even managed to appear at a birthday party without anyone noticing.
She also slipped by the media when she got on her flight back to London, which is an achievement in and of itself. The only time Markle made any news was during Williams’ tennis match.
The fact that Meghan Markle was able to visit the Big Apple without stirring up trouble completely won back Queen Elizabeth’s trust. It also helped that Prince Harry stayed home because it proved that Markle could handle things herself.
Although Markle got back on Queen Elizabeth’s good side, she really won her over with her recent trip to South Africa.
Inside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tour of South Africa
Markle and Prince Harry kicked off their tour of South Africa last week and are now at the last leg of their journey. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have visited various countries along the way and even split up to do solo events this week.
They also arrived in South Africa with their baby son, Archie, making this their first trip abroad as a family of three.
So far, the couple has generated a lot of positive buzz throughout the tour, which is something Queen Elizabeth allegedly loves.
Royal expert Neil Sean says that Her Majesty is thrilled by what Prince Harry and Markle are doing in South Africa and cannot be happier about the positive PR the tour has generated.
If Queen Elizabeth had any reservations about Markle, the South Africa trip has completely won her over.
For the Sussexes, this could not have come at a better time. The couple has faced a lot of criticism over the past year and was in desperate need of some good media coverage.
The tour also coincides with Prince Harry’s new lawsuit against the Daily Mail and its parent company. Prince Harry recently released a statement condemning the tabloid for publishing one of Markle’s private letters.
He also defended Markle and blasted the media for how they continuously spread rumors about her.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not commented on the rumors regarding Queen Elizabeth’s broken trust. They are expected to return home in the coming days.
