THE QUEEN is “waiting to see what the next nuclear bomb will be” with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, an anonymous royal insider has claimed.
Meghan, 41, and Prince Harry, 37, are reported to have arrived in the UK on Saturday morning. It is their first visit back to the Duke’s home turf since their highly-anticipated return for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June.
It is thought the couple touched down without their two children, three-year-old Archie and Lilibet, one.
The royal pair will first attend the One Young World Summit in Manchester on Monday, before heading to Germany.
They will make an appearance at an event marking one year until the next Invictus Games in Dusseldorf.
They will then fly back to London for the WellChild Awards in the capital on Thursday.
Their visit comes in the wake of Meghan’s appearance in New York Magazine’s The Cut, the latest in the Duchess of Sussex’s high-profile interviews.
Speaking to the media about “deeply personal family relationships” goes against the “values of the Queen”, a royal source has said.
The anonymous source described the monarch, 96, as on “tenterhooks” for the “next nuclear bomb” to appear in the press.
One source told The Sunday Times: “It is hard to see how what they’re doing would equate to the values of the Queen, who has never encouraged people to discuss deeply personal family relationships in public.”
Another then added: “She doesn’t want to be on tenterhooks all the time, waiting to see what the next nuclear bomb will be — that will take its toll.”
During the interview, Meghan referenced the 2019 London premiere of the live-action version of The Lion King, when she said she spoke with a South African cast member.
Meghan said he told her: “‘When you married into this family, we rejoiced in the streets the same we did when [Nelson] Mandela was freed from prison.'”
The anti-apartheid leader’s grandson, Zwelivelile “Mandla” Mandela, responded that his grandfather’s imprisonment and campaigning “can never be compared to the celebration of someone’s wedding [to a] white prince.”
