Meghan and Harry left Philip ‘deeply upset’ over royal exit claims expert

Prince Philip was left "deeply upset" by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's decision to step down as senior royals, an expert has claimed.

The husband of the Queen was allegedly hurt over Megxit and says he does not understand his grandson's "alien behaviour", royal expert Ingrid Seward claims.

The couple announced in January this year that they would step back from senior positions in the Royal Family following talks at Sandringham between Harry, Prince Charles, Prince William and the Queen.

Meghan and Harry have since relocated with their son Archie to California, having spent the intervening period living in Canada.

And now Ms Seward has claimed Prince Harry's behaviour was “completely alien” to the Duke of Edinburgh and that Meghan left a "bad taste" with the senior royal.

Prince Philip has spoken out about how the Megxit crisis has led to a poor relationship between Prince Harry and Prince William.

Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl, said Prince Philip "quite liked" Meghan Markle to begin with.

But the royal expert now says the Duke of Edinburgh is comparing her to Wallis Simpson.

Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII fell in love and their relationship caused the abdication crisis when they married in 1937.

The royal expert said Prince Philip feels "unable to comprehend" why Prince Harry would want to leave the UK.

The expert added: "His grandson’s behaviour is completely alien to him, so not unnaturally the relationship has suffered."

Throughout lockdown Prince Philip has kept himself busy by fishing, writing letters, and reading.

The Duke of Edinburgh was not at the emergency summit announced by the Queen after Harry and Meghan announced their intention to leave the Uk and become financially independent.

For that summit, the Queen had summoned Prince Charles and Prince William.

Royal expert Ingrid Seward has spoken about the Duke's eyesight being poor.

He has also become "very hard of hearing" in his old age.

The royal expert said: "He also loves watching cooking programs.

"He loves Mary Berry."

The Duke has been known to make a "massive effort to look his best" for royal appearances.

Ms Seward suggests he takes hours to slowly prepare for royal engagements.

Ingrid Seward revealed how the Duke of Edinburgh gets up "as early as necessary" to arrive on time for appointments.

She added: "He’s a proud man.

"He doesn’t want to be seen with a stick and would never consider a Zimmer frame."
