During Monday, around 500 heads of state, presidents and royalty will say goodbye to Queen Elizabeth.

It is, of course, particularly heavy for the queen’s own family, who are now forced to cope without their “Lilibet”.

Meanwhile, the royal family has been reported to have a complicated relationship with one of the married members, Meghan.

It’s been two years since she and husband Harry left the royal household, and a year since that famous Oprah interview took place.

Now, after all the drama, she still stands there next to the royal family. It is a serious duchess we see.

Meghan’s strained relationship with the royal family

In February 2020, Meghan and Harry left their roles as working members of the royal family.

The reason was stated to be that the couple wanted to “work” and “become financially independent” as well as raise Archie outside the UK.

The decision had a trial period of 12 months and a year later it was clear that Meghan and Harry are leaving for good.

By this time, the British press had long and diligently written about the rift between Meghan and the rest of the royal family.

Among other things, Tatler painted a gloomy picture where Meghan allegedly made Kate cry before the wedding with Harry in 2018.

The headlines didn’t immediately decrease when the prince couple appeared in that Oprah Winfrey interview in March 2021.

Here, among other things, Meghan and Kate’s wedding conflict will come up again – but the story was told differently:

– No no. The reverse happened. And I’m not saying that to pick on anyone, because the week before the wedding was really tough. And she was angry about something, but she backed down and apologized, Meghan said during the Oprah interview.

During the conversation, Harry also admitted that the relationship with his brother William was strained:

– The relationship is ‘space’ right now. And time hopefully heals all wounds, he said, among other things.

There have simply been many twists and turns, but has the allegedly chilly relationship thawed somewhat?

Meghan Markle at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral

During the week, Meghan has appeared alongside the royal family at several ceremonies linked to Elizabeth’s death.

And on Monday, she stood there, at the funeral of the century.

Meghan arrived at Elizabeth’s funeral by car and then took a seat next to Kate and Camilla.

What the relationship between Meghan and the rest of the royal family really looks like is probably only known to them and those closest to them.

One thing is for sure, any conflicts were put aside for the Queen’s funeral.

There were more important things in focus here, such as giving the queen of queens a dignified farewell.
