(ConservativePeak.com)- Reports suggest that Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, is disappointed in the behavior of American actress Meghan Markle who married Prince Harry before abandoned her royal duties in April.
The Daily Mail reported how Prince Philip has privately expressed his anger and frustration that Markle was unable to set aside her career and opinions to support Harry and the Royal Family when that’s precisely what he did when he married Queen Elizabeth. Philip, who is 99 years old, abandoned his career in the Navy when he married Queen Elizabeth.
Ingrid Seward, a royal biographer, told the British press that she believes Prince Philip is “very, very disappointed.”
“I think he feels he gave up his naval career in order to stand by the Queen and help the monarchy,” Seward said to Sky News. “And why can’t Meghan just give up her acting career, support her husband and support the monarchy? As he used to say to Diana, this is not a popularity contest, this is all of us working together.”
Seward said that Philip does not understand why Markle could not have just supported harry and helped him “rather than wanting to have her voice.”
The reports come at a time when Meghan Markle and her husband Harry begin a new career in television, having just signed a multi-million dollar deal with streaming service Netflix to create content.
Harry and Meghan also recently appeared in a video in which they called for an end to what they call “structural racism” in the United Kingdom. The video celebrates Black History Month, and violated royal protocol in that royals should never discuss politics publicly.
Last week, Markle was also listed as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world. She spoke to TIME Magazine to accept the honor, and encouraged people to go out and vote.
“Every four years we were told the same thing: this is the most important election of our lifetime,” she told the magazine.
Markle, who has abandoned her royal duty while fighting to maintain her title of Duchess of Sussex, took millions of dollars of taxpayer’s money in the United Kingdom to pay for her royal wedding and royal home.
Being a royal comes with responsibilities and duties…and the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, would know all about that. The Queen’s husband only retired from his official duties at the age of 96.
