Harry and Meghan Markle playing with Queen Elizabeth, insider says

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are cynically toying with the emotions of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, according to an insider.

“I think the Queen and Prince Charles missed them tremendously, and so [Harry and Meghan] could wrap them around their little fingers and use them for commercial purposes as they have done before,” royal biographer Andrea Levin told viewers of “Good Morning Britain” on Friday.

The Sussexes met Prince Charles on the sly on Thursday, followed by what was described as a much calmer encounter with the Queen, as they traveled to the Invictus Games in the Netherlands.

The meetings with Prince Harry’s father and grandmother were the first in two years for the couple, who now live in California and have been criticized internationally for inspiring a bad royal feud during the past year.

Harry slammed his father during a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021 in which he claimed Charles cut him off financially.

The rift between the couple and senior royals widened last month, when Harry hastily announced he would not be returning to England for the March 29 memorial services for Prince Philip, the husband of the Queen and her grandfather, who died last year.

The couple’s efforts to reach out likely had “something to do with not showing up for Prince Philip’s memorial service and finding out from there what the reaction was to it – it was very bad – and they can’t afford to lose that publicity,” says Lévin.

She said poor public relations had even had a ripple effect on Harry and Meghan’s relationships with European royalty outside their own families.

The King and Queen of Holland “very unusually” did not invite the couple to dinner or stay with them during their visit this weekend, Levin noted.
