Months after putting their royal relatives through headline-making hell — slamming Prince Charles, claiming they endured racism and airing The Firm’s dirty laundry in a blockbuster sitdown with Oprah Winfrey — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle apparently want to meet with Queen Elizabeth.
The pair have reportedly asked for a summit with Queen Elizabeth, and hope to plan a Windsor Castle christening for her namesake, their infant daughter, Lilibet, a source told The Sun.
But the entire bid for a get together with the Queen has left palace staffers stunned, The Sun noted.
“Harry and Meghan have made this offer but a lot of people are shocked by the sheer nerve of it. They may genuinely want to see the Queen but it’s breathtaking given what they’ve put her through this year,” a source told the outlet.
The palace hasn’t responded to Harry and Meghan’s request, though the source added that the Queen “is still very fond of Harry, and would love to see Lilibet and her brother Archie. But courtiers are surprised by the move, especially from Meghan, after what has happened.”
