Royals ‘pleased’ Meghan didn’t attend Prince Philip’s funeral

The Royal Family were “quietly pleased” Meghan Markle did not attend Prince Philip’s funeral service with her husband Prince Harry, says a new chapter in the biography ‘Finding Freedom’.

The tell-all book on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed the family were afraid her appearance would create “a circus” or “a spectacle”.

The Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9 and was laid to rest over a week later on April 17 with Prince Harry in attendance at the ceremony.

‘Finding Freedom’ is set to be released on the 24th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death on August 31.
