According to reports, the 39-year-old pregnant Duchess of Sussex will not be joining Prince Harry for the uncomfortable royal reunion when they lay Queen Elizabeth's longtime husband to rest on Saturday, April 17.
This will be the first time Prince Harry will be returning to London after quitting the royal family last year. To make matters especially hard, this will also be his first trip back since the couple's explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in which they spoke on racism within the palace.
Markle isn't ducking out of Philip's funeral to avoid the family tension. Despite making “every effort” to accompany her husband, Page Six reports that she couldn't get clearance from her doctor due to her pregnancy.
The former "Suits" actress is pregnant and expecting the couple's second child -- a daughter -- in early summer.
According to the outlet's source, Meghan's doctor doesn't want her to fly.
Harry and Meghan dropped several bombshells in their tell-all with Oprah. Accusing one unnamed individual within the palace of racism after questioning their now one-year-old son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's skin color ahead of his birth.
Markle also revealed she was so depressed during her royal family reign that she began suffering suicidal thoughts, something U.K. television host and notorious bully Piers Morgan later criticized.
While tensions reportedly remain high between Harry and his brother Prince William, sources revealed the Duke of Sussex wouldn't dare miss Prince Philip's funeral.
“Harry will, of course, be there, no matter how difficult relations are between the Sussexes and the family,” an insider told The Post.
As Radar reported, Prince Philip died on Friday at 99 years old, just two months shy of his 100th birthday. Harry and Meghan released a statement paying tribute to him on their charity Archewell's website.
"In loving memory of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021 Thank you for all your service...you will be greatly missed," it read.
The Palace made the tearful announcement with a statement from the whole royal family.
"It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," the statement read.
"His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. Further announcements will be made in due course. The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss."
