Queen Elizabeth Is Reportedly Not Going to Be In the Mood to Discuss Harry & Meghan's Interview
According to a royal insider, Queen Elizabeth II will not want to discuss Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview anytime soon.
A royal expert claimed that her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II would not want to hold a family summit to discuss her grandson Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle's revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey.
According to royal biographer Ingrid Seward, Queen Elizabeth does not like confrontation and will only want to talk about her animals, her beloved corgis, and horses right now.

The Queen is mourning the passing of her husband of 73 years, Prince Philip. The Monarch said her last goodbye, with a handwritten note, to her late husband on Saturday, April 17, 2021, after he passed away on April 9, at 99.
Seward, the author of "Prince Philip Revealed," spoke to The Times about whether any kind of family summit or gathering would take place this week. She revealed:
"She hates confrontation. The children have much difficulty getting the Queen to discuss anything other than dogs or horses."
Seward shared that Queen Elizabeth had always disliked confrontation as she recalled when Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew's wife, had tried to discuss their divorce with her.
Queen Elizabeth had not wanted to talk about the matter and said that she needed to walk the dogs so she would not have to discuss it. The last summit the family had was last year.
It was reported that Prince Harry might delay his flight to stay for his grandmother's birthday on Wednesday.
When the Queen called her son Prince Charles and his two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, to discuss Harry and Markle's roles within the family, they lost their HRH titles and moved to the US to be financially independent.
Although the Queen might not be hashing out family issues this week, William and Harry were spotted in deep conversation after their grandfather's funeral on Saturday. Hopefully, mending the rift between them.
It was reported that Prince Harry might delay his flight to stay for his grandmother's birthday on Wednesday. It will be her first birthday without her beloved husband. However, it will look much different this year.
A big tradition for the royal family is to release new portraits of themselves to the public for their birthday. However, this year, new photos of the Queen will not be released following the death of her husband.
Her public celebration will also be different this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, which affected her birthday last year. The royal family usually celebrates "Trooping the Colour," which celebrates her birthday in June.
The highlight of the festivities is the family gathering on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. However, like 2020, it has been canceled. It is unclear whether any of the family will gather for any celebration this June.
