Prince Philip would be deeply upset by the Megxit and it seems that his relationship with his nephew has never recovered from the announcement
Meghan Markle, Harry, Diana: the 8 scandals that shook the Palace
Prince Philip would have been deeply shocked by the Megxit and the behavior of Harry and Meghan Markle. This was revealed by some royal experts who claim that The Queen's husband would have distanced himself from his nephew and his wife. Ingrid Seward, journalist and Royal Family expert, said Megxit made the Duke of Edinburgh "shocked".
And just recently the prince would have broken the silence for the first time by pronouncing himself on the situation, as revealed by Seward who published the book titled Prince Philip Revealed: A Man of His Century. The expert said that the relationship between Harry and his grandfather, which in the past was very close, would not recover from the announcement the couple made in January. A choice that the duke could not understand and that "deeply troubled" him. Apparently Queen Elizabeth's husband was also hurt that her advice to Harry and Meghan about real life was not heeded.
Philip initially liked his nephew's wife but, according to Katie Nicholl at Vanity Fair, he now compares her to Wallis Simpson, the wife of Edward VIII who abdicated for her in 1937.
After all, Royal Family expert Ingrid Seward told Sky News that the Duke of Edinburgh was unable to understand why Meghan did not follow her example. In fact, he had given up a very promising military career to stay close to the Sovereign and support the Monarchy.
A very different decision from that of Meghan, who instead chose to leave the Crown and start a new life in Los Angeles with her husband and son, little Archie Harrison. And it also looks like the couple will miss their second family Christmas, not returning to England for the holidays.
Journalist Seward also said that apparently Filippo would not have wanted to even participate in the emergency meeting that was held after the announcement of the Megxit. On that occasion, Queen Elizabeth summoned Prince Charles and William to discuss the situation.
A difficult situation, which seems to have weighed heavily on all members of the royal family, including Prince Philip.
