Spicier than any daily soap, the royal battle has everyone’s attention. Theories, allegations, who said who – all such little details have taken a centre stage on the Internet. Interestingly, people were able to conjure up some theories from Queen Elizabeth’s memorial day as well and turns out, Meghan Markle became its target.
There’s no refuting that Markle’s sour relationship with the Royal family has attracted a bevy of haters. So, when the former Suits actress arrived at the Queen’s memorial to pay her regards, Twitterati began speculating that she was wearing a microphone to the event. The allegations sprung from the black outfit that the Duchess of Sussex wore, which had a mysterious square-shaped crease on one side.
“VILE! Meghan Markle wears MICROPHONE to Queen Elizabeth’s FUNERAL to gather Netflix and Spotify content. No wonder she was NOT invited to the Queen’s deathbed,” wrote a user. Many believed that she was wearing the mic to gather material for her Netflix docuseries.
An insider, however, told Page Six that the accusation was baseless. “This is insane and actually damaging to her. Of course, she was not wearing a mic,” a source close to Markle revealed. Fans of Markle also blasted haters for blaming the Duchess for something as bizarre as this.
Post The Queen’s death, the Duke of Sussex shared an emotional statement. “Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings — from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my commander-in-chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren,” he said, paying homage to Markle and their two children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, who was named after the monarch.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Prince and Princess of Wales were seen together after ages at the memorial. They were last seen together at Commonwealth Day in March 2020.
