Over the past couple of years, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have done their best to avoid the bashing of the British media. However, now they seem to have taken it to a new level by missing King Charles III’s 75th birthday. While most senior members of the family seemed rather unfazed, royal experts have other answers. According to reports by First Post, Neal Sean made a statement saying that they were actually “relieved.”

He implied that the royal family was already informed that the couple was “not going to be returning” for the celebrations. Although the British monarchy has not made any statements or addressed the speculations, there is a possibility that they saw it coming. After all, this was not the first time that the Harry & Meghan creators had skipped out on a family occasion.

While most royal family supporters tuned in to be a part of the historic moment of King Charles III being crowned, there seemed to be one royal family member missing from the celebration. Although Prince Harry attended his father’s big day, his wife, Meghan Markle, was nowhere in sight.

It was a planned absence but still left her fans a little surprised that she had not shown up. The 42-year-old had other plans that day as it was her son’s birthday. It may have been a valid reason, however, that did not stop the speculations that the royal family was “relieved” that the Suits star had not made it.
