Although Meghan Markle could not attend Prince Philip’s funeral, she reportedly spoke to the Queen before the service.

On Wednesday, April 21st, an inside source revealed to People that Markle spoke to the Queen and has been staying in touch with her during this difficult time.

Another source told the outlet that “Meghan spoke with Harry before his grandfather’s funeral.” The source also stated that “Meghan and Archie spoke to the Queen earlier this week.”

The insider also said that Meghan and Harry have been in close contact throughout Harry’s trip home to the UK. “She knows the trip to England has been difficult for Harry,” the insider added. “He didn’t want to leave Meghan and Archie alone. Meghan has insisted to him every day though that they are fine. She hasn’t wanted him to worry.”

Markle was also reported watching the funeral service from their family home in Montecito, California. Since Markle is pregnant and due very soon, her doctor was unable to clear her for travel to the funeral service in England.
