Queen Elizabeth II thought her grandson Prince Harry was “perhaps a little too smitten” with his wife, former actress and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle. According to a new biography by British broadcaster Gyles Brandreth, the queen wanted Meghan to “feel welcome” into the royal family. She also said that Meghan could “still be an actress” if she wanted to. However, Queen Elizabeth II was “more concerned with Harry’s well-being” than with “TV nonsense” from him, including the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Last year, Prince Harry appeared alongside Oprah Winfrey in The Me You Can’t See, a mental health documentary series on Apple TV+. Harry had spoken about the racist articles written about Meghan and how her family had not helped.

As quoted by the Daily Mail, an excerpt from the forthcoming biography said the queen’s comment about Harry being ‘a little too smitten’, ‘went as far as she went, at least to my knowledge, to utter a word in against. the new Duchess of Sussex’. When Prince Harry announced that he would marry Meghan, the late British monarch was “really happy”, according to the book Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait, due to be published in December.

The queen told Meghan that she could continue her career: “You can continue to be an actress if you want, that is your profession, after all.” However, when Meghan said she would be leaving acting to pursue royal service, the queen was “delighted.”

The New York Post quoted an excerpt from the upcoming biography as saying: “She (the queen) liked Meghan and she told a lot of people. And she did everything she could to make her future granddaughter-in-law feel welcome.” Gyles also wrote, according to the report, that the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey did not deter her: “I can tell you, because I know this, that the Queen was always more concerned with Harry’s well-being than ‘this television’.” nonsense’, meaning both the Oprah Winfrey interview, which caused so much controversy, and the lucrative deal the Sussexes made with Netflix.” The queen was “concerned that Harry would ‘find his place’ in California and ‘find things genuinely useful to do,'” the author further wrote.
