Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Only Met With Queen Elizabeth 'For Their Netflix Documentary,' Biographer Believes
After not hopping across the pond for Prince Philip's memorial service, it looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are trying to make amends, as they met with Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth this week.
However, biographer Tom Bower believes there's another reason why the duo met with the matriarch, 95.
"I have no doubt it was all done for their Netflix documentary," he said. "The Queen's advisers failed to protect her from being exploited by the royal family's worst traducers, while the Sussexes exploited an old, unwell woman to boost their credibility and coffers."
As TMZ reported, the couple flew from L.A. to London on Tuesday, April 12, on a commercial flight. The two were in first class, and security escorted them the whole time since the dad-of-two has previously spoken out about the lack of protection when he comes to the U.K.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Meghan, 40, would be going with Prince Harry to the Netherlands, but author Angela Levin thinks there is an underlying motive for her trip.
"Meghan is going because they're doing the next Netflix documentary," she said. "They're going with cameras, and she wouldn't want to miss out on the publicity. The Invictus Games don't belong to her, she likes taking over things that she thinks will be productive for her. She's not necessary there."
Originally, when Harry was going to Europe, people were confused why he wouldn't attend his grandfather's service but would make an appearance at the upcoming Invictus Games.
"I'm baffled about why Harry thinks he would be safer in the Netherlands than in the U.K," former Met inspector Ken Wharfe told the MailOnline. "He would have traveled to his grandfather's memorial service with his brother or father and received protection from the Met. It's not like he would have been turning up at Westminster Abbey on a bike."
