Why It Seems That Meghan Markle Is Ruling Prince's Harry's Inner Circle

The Duchess of Sussex is, unfortunately, the subject of too much criticism, and it ranges from her clothes to the way she holds her new baby, Archie. The latest speculation is that Meghan has alienated all of Prince Harry’s friend since they walked down the aisle. At least, that’s what her ex-friend Lizzie Cundy recently stated. Could this be true? Let’s find out more!

Today, The Duke of Sussex visited Oxford to highlight the positive work being done in the city for young children, disabled people and the community at large. The Duke started his day meeting young patients at the Oxford Children’s Hospital. In 2016 at the @WellChild Awards, The Duke promised awardee Mikayla Beames he would visit her at hospital. Today, HRH was able to fulfill that promise and spend time with Mikayla and other patients and their families, along with the some of the extraordinary staff and teachers in the Hospital School who are on hand to support the young patients as they continue their studies whilst in hospital. Afterwards, The Duke of Sussex, in celebration of its 30th year, re-opened the OXSRAD Disability Sports and Leisure Centre, a facility first opened by his mother, Diana Princess of Wales in 1989. His Royal Highness felt honoured to pay tribute to her work and meet some of the people his mother met 30 years ago. This centre supports people with disabilities through sport and physical exercise – an area The Duke is particularly passionate about. HRH has seen the transformative effect sports, teamwork and exercise can have on people, not just physically but also for their mental fitness. The Duke’s final stop was at Barton Neighbourhood Centre to see the work of Thrive Teams, an initiative that supports at risk youth with access to education and employment. The Barton Centre includes a cafe, doctor’s office, sports hall, local police centre and food bank. The team there save nearly one tonne of food per day from being wasted and whip up some incredible meals for those that can’t afford to sustain themselves. Serving as a hub for this close-knit community, where 1 in 4 grow up in child poverty, this centre truly is a lifeline for its roughly 5,000 residents, but also an example of what can be achieved when we all come together.

During an interview with talkRADIO, Cundy, a TV personality, claimed this “insider” information about the former actress, revealing that Markle has managed to push Harry away from his friends.

“One thing I have heard — because I’m friends with a lot of Harry’s friends, one is a very close friend — is that she has pushed them all out.”

she said. It’s not that insane to think that Prince Harry hasn’t been hanging out with his buddies that much lately, but there are plenty of reasonable explanations to his absence. He recently became a father, and he has many royal duties as well while learning to balance them all as well as focusing on his wife.

However, Cundy continued,

“She’s ruling the roost. This friend, I won’t name him, he had Harry on his shoulders in Las Vegas when he got into that trouble. He was a really good, solid friend — covered for him, everything — he has been elbowed right out.”


Sometimes, friendships fade away with time when everyone’s priorities change. But, when someone gets married, that person has to focus on his family first and foremost. Comparing Prince Harry’s partying days to his current situation is completely illogical. He is no longer that boy, and there is no reason why he has to keep up hanging with the same friends all the time.

Furthermore, blaming Meghan seems more like a way of attracting attention than any actual truth. Prince Harry is doing his best as he has become a husband and father in the past year. No one would expect him to meet his friends as he did during his single days. In fact, many people would criticize him if he did.

They would call him an irresponsible father or worse. Luckily, the Duke of Sussex is far from it, as he has taken his responsibilities like a real man. If that means that some of his friends might be upset, then so be it. Once you grow up, priorities change, and that’s just the way life goes. On the other hand, Meghan could very well be taking control of her home.

She is a mother for the first time in her life, and she is known for her strong opinions. Therefore, regarding the fate of her young boy, Meghan might be a little overprotective, but that doesn’t mean that she is caging Prince Harry in any way. Sadly, the gossip doesn’t stop, as many other “royal sources” have said that the Duke is no longer spending time with his acquaintances.

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth - a family of 53 countries working together to promote democracy, protect human rights, regenerate the environment, and focus not on what makes us different - but rather what we have in ‘common.’ What unites us versus what divides us. Representing nearly one third of the world’s population, 60% of whom are under the age of 30, the Commonwealth also serves as a champion for youth empowerment, which is a key focus of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Her Majesty The Queen serves as patron of the @queens_commonwealth_trust, which Their Royal Highnesses proudly serve as President and Vice-President of. The Duke is also Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Through The Duke and Duchess’ Commonwealth travels, they have worked with and supported young leaders on mobilizing youth engagement, and working towards a more unified future that spearheads progress, sustainability, optimism, and taking action. With that said, Mozambique, a member state of the Commonwealth, is currently enduring Cyclone Kenneth, the most destructive natural disaster the northern coast has ever experienced. On the heels of Cyclone Idai (where over 1000 people lost their lives) this cyclone will leave the people of Mozambique victim to catastrophic flooding, food insecurity, displacement, and obliteration of their homes and villages.

These insiders have stated that the former actress has restricted Prince Harry’s meeting with some buddies because they were not the best influences. One of them is his childhood friend, Tom “Skippy” Inskip, whom he met at Eton College in 1998. According to Tatler Magazine, Inskip was not on good terms with the Duchess of Sussex because he didn’t want Prince Harry to marry her.

Today, The Duke of Sussex attends the #ANZACday service at Westminster Abbey with The Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke of Gloucester. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended this service last year in addition to the dawn service. They also paid their respects at the #ANZAC memorial in Sydney during their official tour last fall. Having devoted ten years of service to military duty, including two tours in Afghanistan, The Duke completed his time of service with four weeks with the Australian Defence Force. Their Royal Highnesses remain committed to supporting serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans and the families that support them. #ANZACDay commemorates the anniversary of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli in 1915. ANZAC Day is a moment to recognise the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who lost their lives during the landings, and to honour the sacrifices of men and women in all wars. ANZAC Day has been observed annually in London since King George V attended a service at Westminster Abbey, and more than 2,000 Australian and New Zealand troops marched through the streets. Members of The Royal Family have continued to honour the servicemen and women globally, and today HRH The Duke of Cambridge also paid his respects at @AucklandMuseum. The Duke of Cambridge is visiting The Commonwealth country on behalf of The Queen to pay tribute to those killed in the Christchurch attacks earlier this year.

The article read,

“Hang out with the Clooney/Beckham/Soho House set and be assailed for being too Hollywood, for forcing your hen-pecked husband to abandon his old, country-set muckers — including Tom ‘Skippy’ Inskip, the ultra-loyal, tight-lipped Harry pal, who, it’s said advised Harry not to marry Meghan and has paid the price: banishment.”

Meanwhile, a source from The Sun added,

“But the real reason Tom was made no longer welcome by Meghan is that she had learned he had dared to question Harry over whether he really felt he was doing the right thing in marrying her.”

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️

Additionally, the source explained,

“All the poor guy did, during a heart to heart with the prince, was to venture that Harry might be infatuated, more in lust than love, and maybe he might think about cooling things down before rushing into a proposal.”

After serving in the @BritishArmy for ten years, The Duke of Sussex has committed himself to promoting the welfare of members of the Armed Forces and veterans. The Duke knows the lasting effects military service can have, as soldiers recover from PTS after battle or struggle to get back into the normalities of civilian life. Through his work with servicemen and women, The Duke has also seen how families benefit from extra support when their loved ones are away and adjusting to life back home. He met many soldiers and their families at the Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch in London today. This is an annual event which raises money for @soldierscharity to support those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Duke’s work with wounded servicemen and women has included creating @weareinvictusgames, volunteering with the Army's Personnel Recovery Unit in London, trekking with wounded servicemen and women to the South Pole and in the Arctic and supporting a number of adventure challenges through his Endeavour Fund. The Duchess of Sussex was unfortunately unable to attend today, but has joined her husband in supporting the troops at the Invictus Games, Endeavour Fund and with the TILS Fund, as an extension of her previous work in this space. By participating in events like today’s, The Duke hopes that servicemen and women are recognised for their unique skill set and abilities, and that we all work together to ensure that they and their families have the support they need and deserve during and after service.

Luckily, things are not as dire as some media outlets make it out to be because Prince Harry called Skippy the day his son, Archie, was born, and said that his friend was truly happy for them, and also “delighted” that Harry had taken the time to call him after that important moment.

According to a royal source,

“One of the first of his old chums with whom Harry wanted to share the great news was Skippy, who is just happy to be back in the fold. Tom is genuinely happy that he was proved wrong about Meghan — because he, like everyone else, can see that they are absolutely devoted to each other.”

Over time, only close friendships remain true as long as they are all on the same page. Your friends are still important, but there are other people who come first to each individual. Meghan is Prince Harry’s wife, and therefore, his main priority. Many of her former friends are trying to find their own 15 minutes of fame through the Duchess, but it always ends up being fake news.

As an actress, Meghan was probably used to malicious comments from people online, but she probably never expected that her old acquaintances would turn against her. After the drama surrounding her father, and her half-sister, Samantha, it is possibly hard to deal with anything else. However, the former actress looks strong, and she has a great husband and family to support her.

Today is #earthday - an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home. The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today. Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including: Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us. A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling. Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our 🌍 are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals. Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all. Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber. We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too. When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism. Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day. #earthday
