Prince Philip ‘irritated’ that Meghan ‘didn’t support monarchy’, says biographer

Prince Philip is "irritated" and "disappointed" that Meghan Markle chose not to sacrifice her TV career for the Royal Family, according to a royal biographer.

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine and author of several royal biographies, pointed-out that Prince Philip had to sacrifice his naval career when he married The Queen.

Speaking to Sky News ahead of the publication of her new biography on Prince Philip, she claimed he felt Meghan was concerned with her "voice" than supporting the monarchy.

The royal author told the show: "I think he's very, very disappointed because I think he feels he gave up his naval career in order to stand by the Queen and help the monarchy.

"And why can't Meghan just give up her acting career, support her husband and support the monarchy?"

She continued: "As he used to say to Diana, this is not a popularity contest, this is all of us working together.

"He just cannot understand why she couldn't support Harry and help him rather than wanting to have her voice.

"Of course, it irritates him hugely."

The royal expert claimed Prince Philip also gave an indication of his opinion ahead of the notorious "Megxit" discussion at the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk before Harry and Meghan departed the UK.

She said: "And when they had the Sandringham Summit, Prince Philip was seen leaving the house very swiftly before they all arrived.

"He simply doesn't want to get involved anymore."

This comes after it was reported that Meghan and Harry are "eager" to see Prince Philip "in particular" when they return to the UK for a family visit.

It is said that they want baby Archie to spend quality time with his great-grandparents over Christmas.
