With the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, it was said that the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, would not go to Balmoral right away to be with the family. Instead, she would stay in England, at least at first.
The BBC says that royal reporter Omid Scobie confirmed her absence on Twitter. He also said that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, would not be there because she cared for her three children in Windsor.
In the last few months of 2021, Markle's lawyer, Jenny Afia, fought back against claims that Markle bullied Kensington Palace staff. Markle also wrote a letter to her father to try to make up with him after they had grown apart.
And Meghan Markle, mother of two and wife of Prince Harry, performed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in a way that “embarrassed the royal family,” according to one royal author.
Markle's tendency to get into trouble was one reason she may not have traveled with the family right away after the Queen died. According to ELLE, this was especially true because it had strained her relationships with family members like Prince William and Prince Charles.
Meghan Markle: Early Years
Meghan Markle was born in Los Angeles, California, on August 4, 1981. She grew up in Hollywood because her father worked on T.V. and won several Emmy awards for his work.

Meghan Markle and Her Wedding to Prince Harry of England
In 2016, it was said that Meghan Markle was dating Prince Harry of England. Two years later, they married and are now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Less than two years after they married, Harry and Meghan both asked to step down from their royal duties, so they could leave the country and try to make their own money.
Queen Elizabeth II let them do it, but she asked them to give up their titles of “Royal Highness.” Since then, the couple has signed a production deal with Netflix for five years worth at least $100 million and a podcast deal with Spotify for three years worth $18 million.

She went on to become an actress. She worked as a model and had a short stint on “Deal or No Deal,” which gave her extra money. In the early 2000s, she played small parts in “General Hospital,” “Century City,” “CSI: N.Y.,” and “Fringe.”
After appearing in a few movies, including “Horrible Bosses,” Markle joined the cast of “Suits” in July 2011. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she was paid $50,000 per episode, or $450,000 a year. She made about $4 million by being on the T.V. show until 2017.
