Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sent shockwaves through the monarchy when they decided to step down as senior royals in 2020. The reaction to their decision among other members of the royal family and Queen Elizabeth II’s choice to hold a closed-door summit have been reported on extensively. However, something Prince Philip said at that time about Meghan has come to light recently.
Here’s what the Duke of Edinburgh reportedly told one of his aides about everyone being “wrong about Meghan all along.”
Prince Philip was very fond of Meghan at first
It’s been reported that in the early days of Meghan and Harry’s relationship, Philip became very fond of the former Suits star after speaking with her.
A source previously revealed that Meghan really impressed the royal family patriarch after she showed an interest in learning about his ancestors and heritage.
“Meghan asked a lot of questions, about Philip’s side of the family and his connection to Greece,” the insider told Express. The source added that Prince Philip warmed up to her after that, “The Duke of Edinburgh really got on with her. The reason he liked her was because she was very bold.”
