Meghan Markle’s feelings for the queen “exposed by a simple gesture” | Royal | News

Prince Harry, 37, and Meghan Markle, 40, stepped down from royal duties in 2020 and moved to the United States to lead financially independent lives away from the cabinet. Now the couple reside in Montecito with their two children Archie, two, and Lilibet, who will be one in June.

Upon announcing their intention to step down, the Queen issued a statement acknowledging their departure from cabinet.

The 95-year-old monarch has said the Sussexes will remain ‘much loved’ members of his family.

She thanked the couple for their “dedicated work” and wished them “a happy and peaceful new life”.

Her Majesty also touchingly expressed how proud she was of Meghan, who had “become part of the family so quickly”.

Before their departure, Meghan had the rare honor of performing a day of engagements with the Queen.

In June 2018, the couple traveled to Chester together and made a number of visits and appearances, including attending a lunch at Chester Town Hall.

For the occasion, Meghan and the Queen headed to the North West of England aboard the Royal Train and a stop in their route saw them witness the inauguration of the Mersey Gateway Bridge.

Photographs from the day show the women in good spirits as they laugh and smile together.

Ms James said: “It is clear from the congruent and very spontaneous smiles of the Queen that she was delighted to have her new daughter-in-law by her side on this visit.

Meghan looked rather nervous at first, shyly stepping off the train and using a more hesitant gesticulation than usual.

“Without her new husband, Prince Harry by her side to touch and hug her, there has been a noticeable increase in Meghan’s heartwarming control and self-touch rituals, suggesting that she is still very in awe of her adoring mother-in-law. “

Despite stepping down, Harry and Meghan continue to praise Her Majesty and in June they paid tribute to her by naming their daughter Lilibet, a nickname used by the monarch.

Royal author Omid Scobie told Good Morning America last summer: “When it comes to this relationship with the Queen, it is stronger than ever.”

Since moving to the United States, the Sussexes have yet to return to British soil as a family of four, meaning the monarch has yet to meet his namesake in person.

Prince Harry has made two solo visits to the UK since leaving office.

He attended Prince Philip’s funeral in April last year and also joined his brother Prince William in July to reveal a statue of their late mother, Princess Diana.
