Queen "disappointed" at Harry and Meghan

Queen "disappointed" at Harry and Meghan

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reported to have upset the Queen after bailing on the traditional royal family Christmas day in the UK.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their one-year-old son Archie spent Christmas last year in Canada with Meghan's mother Doria, which upset the royal family.

It appears the royal couple are doing the same thing this year, as they are "looking forward" to staying at home in California in their $20 million home.

The family are travelling to the UK days later ahead of Markle's high-profile case against the Mail on Sunday on January 11th.

Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl said the Queen is “missing” Harry and hasn’t seen Archie in a year, making the news all the more “disappointing” for the monarch.

An insider explained to the publication: “Global travel has been made very complicated by the coronavirus pandemic and at the moment the Duke has no plans to travel back to the UK, certainly not before Christmas.”

The Mirror claimed that Harry and Meghan will host Harry’s “surrogate” dad, record producer David Foster, and his wife Katherine McPhee, for a Christmas soiree. 

“She’s really excited and is planning on doing all the traditions she grew up with as a child, including the cooking.”

An insider spoke to Vanity Fair and said that the Sussex family could be avoiding tension between the Cambridge family.

They said: “Let's just say that while things are better between Harry and his brother, it's not what it was, and I don't think anyone is ready for a cosy family Christmas right now.”
