On Saturday (April 10) it was announced that Prince Harry will be in attendance at his grandfather’s funeral while his wife will not. Sources close to the couple revealed the reason why Markle will not be able to travel.
“The Duchess has made every effort to travel alongside The Duke, but unfortunately, she did not receive medical clearance from her physician,” a source told Harper’s BAZAAR.
Meghan is expecting their second child, a girl.
In their Oprah Winfrey interview special, the host revealed that they are expecting “sometime this summer.” The couple moved to Southern California last year amid their royal exit.
Prince Philip’s funeral will take place in the U.K. on Saturday, April 17, at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. Prince Harry will be in attendance and will be “following COVID-19 protocols for travel” in both directions.
