Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess spent ‘sad day’ mourning Philip after sending touching wreath tribute to funeral

MEGHAN Markle had a “sad day” on Saturday as she watched the livestream of Prince Philip’s funeral from her home in California.

The Duchess of Sussex, 39, remains in the US on doctor’s advice while Prince Harry made the 5,400-mile trip to the UK to attend the Duke’s final send off.

And it was revealed Sunday that Harry talked to his Prince Charles and brother William for two hours after Philip’s service – their first in-person interaction since Oprah’s bombshell interview.

Speaking to ABC News, Meghan’s pal Omid Scobie said: “Although Meghan isn’t here, she is, of course, supporting Harry. Her mind is very much on the situation over here.

“We know that she’s supporting Harry in this very difficult week for him.

“But she’ll also be sad because this is also the loss of a family member for her.”

He added: “It’ll be a sad day for her.”

The Queen reportedly “understands” why pregnant Meghan didn’t fly to the UK with her husband.

A source told People that both Meghan and Harry “were in contact with the Queen” soon after Philip’s death.

The source said: “It was always a given that Harry would return to England for his grandfather’s passing.

“Meghan expressed condolences. The Queen understands why she can’t travel at the moment.”

It comes as it was claimed Harry and wife Meghan are filled with “regret” over the timing of their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The pair sensationally tore strips off the Royal Family during the televised chat, accusing members of racism and failing to support Meghan when she felt suicidal, creating the biggest royal crisis since the 1936 abdication.

The interview was broadcast around the world just days after Prince Philip was first hospitalised – and a matter of weeks before he sadly died aged 99.

But while Meghan and Harry are said to regret the timing of the interview, they are understood to stand by its content and insist airing their dirty laundry in public was something they “had to do”, according to Heat.
