Experts explain why there are no photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Traditionally, Elizabeth II delivered his Christmas speech, sitting at a table with photos of all members of the Royal family. But attentive viewers noticed a few important details. What was wrong?
It turned out that among the pictures there were no pictures of Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their 7-month-old son Archie and Prince Andrew, who was involved in a sex scandal. Users of social networks have suggested that the reason for this could be that the Dukes Sysexec gave preference to meet Christmas with her mother Megan Dory in Canada.
But, it turns out, is not the case. Royal commentator and founder of the resources of The Crown and Royalty Chronicles Replicate Victoria Howard said that the pictures that were in the Christmas broadcast of the Queen, is in no way an insult to individual family members, but only a diplomatic choice.
“This is part of the Royal image, the purpose of this choice is to show the continuity and the future of the crown.”
According to Howard, the pictures were selected on the basis of proximity of family members to the throne.
If you look at the series of pictures over the last years, they mainly depict the Queen and Prince Philip, their parents, and direct heirs, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George – she explains.
So in the pictures, for example, is a direct heir to the throne Prince Charles, but there are no other children of the Queen say the Princess Anne.
Please note on the pictures that are on the table Elizabeth II
True or not, I can only guess. After all, this summer the Dukes Sussexite was on the table in the living room of the Queen at Buckingham Palace, but then he disappeared. Obviously, since they fell out of favor with the Queen, who, it seems, is not ready to forgive them even for Christmas.
Overall the year was extremely difficult for the Royal family. So, Prince Philip had an accident on the car, injuring two women, after which he was forced to give up their driver’s license. In the summer Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was convicted of use of a private jet for travel. The latter is known to threaten the environment. Finally, a serious scandal broke out around Prince Andrew, who was accused of human trafficking involving a minor in prostitution and ties to Jeffrey Epstein. After this, the Prince abandoned their public duties.
