Meghan Markle’s first child is due Spring 2019, and Queen Elizabeth II won’t be giving any of her children the “special royal treatment” that she was literally banking on. In fact, the D-list former actress turned Duchess of Sussex is furious that the Queen refuses to give her offspring what she claims is “owed” to them. Well, Meghan’s pregnancy remains marred by rumors as she cries her “royal fairytale” is more like a nightmare. Don’t miss this.
Meghan Markle has been stewing with utter resentment toward the Queen. The former Suits star is lamenting that the British Monarch has not given her and Prince Harry the royal deference which was given to the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton long before they were born.
“Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s baby may not be called Royal Highness — thanks to his or her great-great-grandparent,” reported Page Six. “King George V introduced a rule in 1917 that means their baby will need special permission from the Queen to become an HRH (His/Her Royal Highness). Only the eldest son of the Queen’s first-born, Prince Charles, is entitled to be an HRH — no younger sons or daughters.”
What makes Meghan so upset is that six months before Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her firstborn son, George, Queen Elizabeth had issued the royal decree or the “Letters Patent,” which ensured all of her children with Prince William would be given the title of “Royal Highness.”
The Letters Patent is a method that allows the sovereign to give orders without involving Parliament, and now with only a couple of months left in her pregnancy, according to the Spring 2019 due date given, the former American actress has been quite vocal behind palace walls about what she views as a “slight and embarrassment” to her and her royal husband.
One critic said Meghan needs to understand William will one day be king, and Meghan herself will have to curtsey to Kate, who will be queen. “One day Meghan will have to curtsey to Queen Kate and Meghan will have to understand that. It’s protocol,” said Paul Burell, Princess Diana’s ex-butler.
In fact, keeping with Meghan’s troublesome attitude is the now very big public rift between the royals. Royal Editor of the Evening Standard Robert Jobson said we could see a breakdown of the two brothers and their respective wives’ partnership. He said in a documentary: “The fab four will be two and two – there is no future for the fab four. William and his family will be the primary Royal Family.”
More and more is coming out about Prince William’s utter disdain for Meghan Markle which goes back to when he first met the D-list actress. Royal author Katie Nicholl explained, “William was concerned that Harry’s relationship with Meghan was moving too fast, leading him to have a word with his younger brother.” But Harry was “riled” by William’s intervention which he saw as “criticism” of his bride-to-be.
In fact, on Christmas morning Prince William and Duchess Kate visibly gave Meghan the cold shoulder, even though pro-Meghan media sources keep saying all the well. “Footage of the royals leaving church at Sandringham, posted to Instagram, appears to show pregnant Meghan turning to her brother-in-law outside on the steps outside the St Mary Magdalene Church. However, the prince seemed to be more intent on fixing his scarf repeatedly than speaking to Harry’s wife, the Daily Mail reported.
As it stands, if Meghan has a son, he will receive the title Duke — and if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a daughter next spring, she will not inherit any title, Page Six reports. It comes after circulating rumors claiming Meghan will not have her baby where Kate had her three children.
The Duchess of Sussex is said to be eyeing the maternity unit at Frimley Park Hospital for the birth of her and Prince Harry’s first child. Meghan was pushing for a home birth. She rejected giving birth at the Lindo Wing at the renowned St. Mary’s Hospital where Princess Diana also gave birth to William and Harry, which has perplexed the Queen.
The rumors continue to surround Meghan’s unconventional pregnancy, and now with this “home birth” plan, it only fuels the fire. A royal source told Mad World News, “Her Majesty isn’t quite sure this marriage will last and that is why she has not yet issued the royal decree making the Duchess of Sussex’s offspring HRHs. While no one can foretell what Her Majesty will do, for now, there are no plans to issue the HRH status.”
The British Monarch isn’t penalizing the children. The Queen can foresee some very big issues. If the marriage doesn’t last, what happens if the American Duchess leaves and goes back to the United States? Surely, her child or children would not keep their HRH status for a slew of reasons which cannot be foreseen. Yet, the 37-year-old divorcee doesn’t see it that way at all.
“Meghan’s quite furious at Harry over the HRH debacle. Palace gossip is she was screaming at Harry the titles are ‘owed to her kids.’ She reminded the prince that Catherine is ‘a commoner’ and at least she [Meghan] brought ‘star power’ to the Monarchy, and so will her child,” added the Palace insider.
Meghan countered the Queen’s silence on the HRH status for her children by telling NBC she is thinking about going back to work on Suits. “NBC Universal, who make the show, are reportedly willing to offer Meghan a multi-million dollar donation to the charity of her choice if she decides to do the episode,” the Daily Mail reported.
The role could show the Duchess pregnant as her character Rachel Zane, in a two-minute clip, shot in the UK, added the Daily Mail. Well, there is no doubt the Queen views this as preposterous, along with Meghan’s recent antics. Royals don’t make TV appearances pregnant “playing a role.”
The funny thing is that Meghan Marle was hardly a celebrity in the United States, and stating she brought “star power” to the British Monarchy no doubt made the palace courtiers roll their eyes in utter contempt for the TV actress.
The Queen doesn’t hate Meghan Markle. The Queen is a godly Christain woman. But her duty is to ensure the British Monarchy doesn’t devolve into an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” With that in mind, Her Majesty has reigned for almost 67 years. Sixty-seven years of wars, rumors of wars, peace, deaths, and many scandals. Most royal insiders say Meghan Markle doesn’t stand a chance. In the end, the Crown always wins.
