The silence is broken by Meghan Markle! Initial remarks upon Queen Elizabeth II’s passing.

Regarding the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, Meghan Markle has spoken out.

In an interview with Variety that was published on Wednesday, the “Suits” alum said, “I feel lucky [to have known her].”

She stated, “I’m incredibly thankful that I was able to assist my husband, Prince Harry, especially during that time. Looking at the legacy that his grandma was able to leave on so many levels is what I find to be so wonderful.

She added, “I feel tremendous gratitude to have been able to spend time with her and get to know her,” calling Elizabeth “the most shining example of… female leadership.”

Harry has been “ever the optimist” throughout the “difficult time,” she said, adding, “Now she’s reunited with her husband [Prince Philip].”

For the first time, Meghan Markle discussed the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Duke of Sussex hurried to his grandmother’s bedside on September 8 morning after learning that her condition was deteriorating, but he didn’t make it there until after she had passed away that afternoon.

As King Charles III reportedly stated that Markle’s attendance would not be “proper or appropriate,” she did not accompany him at the time. She chose to stay in London instead.

Two days later, the “Deal or No Deal” star and Harry paid tribute to his late grandmother by accompanying Prince William and Kate Middleton to a memorial outside Windsor Castle in England to welcome visitors and deliver flowers.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, who were formerly known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, joined Harry, 37, and Markle for the first time since March 2020.

According to Page Six, despite their family strife, William, 40, extended the invitation to his brother and sister-in-law.

According to a royal source who spoke exclusively to us, “We are all very appreciative – both sides putting all things aside for the Queen.”

Although this is the first statement Markle has made regarding the Queen’s passing, she and Harry earlier paid homage to the British queen who had been in power the longest by leaving their website, Archewell, dark.

On September 12, Harry released a formal statement regarding the Queen’s passing.

“I treasure the times we have spent together as well as all the other precious times we have had. Already, you are terribly missed,” he added.

The following week, before leaving back home, the ex-military pilot and Markle attended the sovereign’s funeral.

Harry and the “Archetypes” podcast host, who wed in May 2018 and had a 3-year-old son named Archie and a 1-year-old daughter named Lilibet, gave up their royal responsibilities in early 2020 and relocated to California.

When they introduced the Queen to baby Lilibet in June for her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the couple last saw the monarch.
