The fact that Meghan Markle will not be attending Prince Phillip’s funeral comes as no surprise.
After that dreadful Oprah interview in which she practically branded the entire Royal family as the British KKK segment, no one – and I mean no one – would want her around.

Even so, it comes as a shock.
Meghan will not attend the funeral of the recently deceased Prince Philip, according to Mediaite, on the recommendation of her doctor.
She is currently expecting a child.
And, given how far along she is, I can see why flying isn’t the best option.
While the exact due date has yet to be revealed, Yahoo Life announced that an unidentified source has indicated that the new royal baby will arrive at the end of spring.
Many foreign airlines prohibit pregnant women from flying after 26 weeks.
Whatever the cause, I’m sure everyone is breathing a sigh of relief.
It’ll be awkward enough having Harry there; adding the puppet master to the mix will make things even more awkward.
According to the BBC, Harry will fly in from the United States for his grandfather’s funeral on April 17th. The article goes on to say that there will be an eight-day period of national mourning before the televised funeral, which will be a ceremonial event rather than the massive state event normally associated with a monarch’s death.
Prince Philip would also not lie in state, which would have enabled members of the public to see his coffin.
“While this is a time of sorrow and mourning, the coming days will be an opportunity to celebrate a remarkable life,” a Palace spokesman said.
Just 30 people are expected to attend the funeral as guests, including the duke’s children, grandchildren, and other close relatives, according to the spokesman. However, Prince Harry’s wife, the Duchess of Sussex, has been advised by her doctor not to fly for the funeral.
Here is Harry and Meghan’s online tribute to Prince Phillip.
Furthermore, the Royal Family issued the following statement:
It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
