As Queen Elizabeth was laid to rest at St. George’s Chapel, next to her father and mother, hundreds of thousands of people gathered together to show their respect for the monarch who ruled the country for 70 years.
The late Queen was a much-loved royal who served her people selflessly and guided her family and the United Kingdom through extraordinary social changes. Besides being a ruler, Queen Elizabeth was also a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
Among those in attendance of her funeral, were of course, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The two kept a low profile during the service.
Meghan wore a black dress but chose not to put on a veil unlike the rest of the female members of the family, including Kate Middleton and Camilla, who has been named Queen Consort. She paid tribute to the late Queen wearing pearls she received from her as a gift.
Meghan was spotted wiping tears from her face, but not everyone believes her crying was genuine.
Today anchor Karl Stefanovic, who doesn’t hide the fact that he’s not fond of the former Suits star, implied that pictures of Meghan wiping away tears might be misleading.
The Duchess of Sussex was standing next to William and Kate’s two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, while waiting for their car after the state funeral. At one moment, she was spotted glancing at Charlotte and giving her a comforting smile.
As he covered the Queen’s funeral for Today, anchor Stefanovic made fun of Meghan for crying at the funeral.
“There’s been lots of photos around and interpretations of photos and reading into photos [meanings] that may or may not be true,” Stefanovic said.
“‘There’s a couple of Meghan, um, with a tear running down her face – apparently – and also even one of Princess Charlotte that everyone was saying she was crying, and we don’t know if it was true or not.”
Despite the rift between Harry and Meghan and the rest of the royals, Meghan has always spoken dearly of her husband’s grandmother.
During the infamous Oprah interview, when allegations were made against The Firm following Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down from their royal duties, Meghan explained that she felt very welcome by Queen Elizabeth from the very first moment they met.
“The Queen, for example, has always been wonderful to me. I mean, we had one of our first joint engagements together,” Meghan said at the time.
“She asked me to join her, and I went on the train. And we had breakfast together that morning and she gave me a beautiful gift and I just really loved being in her company, and I know we were in the car—Yeah, she gave me some beautiful pearl earrings and a matching necklace—and we were in the car going between engagements.”
She then added, “And she has a blanket that sits across her, her knees, for warmth and it was chilly and she was like, Meghan, come on, and put it over my knees as well.”
Having in mind that the Queen always had her grandson’s back, no matter what, we are certain Meghan did feel sorry for her passing.
What do you think? Were Meghan Markle’s tears genuine?
