Prince Harry Was Allegedly Denied An Important Meeting Before Megxit

When Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, chose to leave the royal family, many were shocked and bewildered, and the New Yorker reported that the British public's reaction was far from pleasant. While the public took a bit of time to come to terms with the accusations made during the Oprah interview, the royal family struggled the most with the information shared by the duke and duchess.
Valentine Low, the royal correspondent for the United Kingdom's publication The Times, has published a new book titled "Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown." It covers many aspects about working for the royals, but it was the struggle between Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth II before his departure for the United States that has royal fans talking.
In an excerpt by The Times, Low writes, "Harry seemed to be under the impression that they could just sort it out by email before he and Meghan got back to London." This matter required meeting in person to hash it out, and Harry was told he could not meet with his grandmother until late January. Low claims, "It fed into the narrative that they were not being taken seriously."
The queen was sad and frustrated that a solution could not be reached with Harry. Even so, Elizabeth and Harry shared a close relationship, as Elizabeth "adored Harry right to the end, and Harry adored her," according to historian and royal author Robert Hardman.
