Meghan Markle Is 'Willing to Forgive And Move Forward' With The Royals

Prince Harry is currently back in England for the first time in a year for his grandfather Prince Philip's funeral, while Duchess Meghan Markle—who's pregnant with the couples' second child—remains in California at the advice of her doctor.

However, friends of the duchess explain that she also "doesn't want to be the center of attention." As a source tells The Daily Mail, "Meghan said her main concern right now is supporting Harry. She said she left it up to him as to whether or not she would attend the funeral. Meghan said it's during these times when family should come together, put their differences aside and unite as one. She said this is what Prince Philip would want and that she's willing to forgive and move forward."

The source also adds that Meghan's mom, Doria, didn't feel comfortable with her traveling: "Doria insisted that Meghan stay behind and support Harry from afar. Like Harry, Doria is very protective of Meghan and doesn't want to see her putting her own health at risk. Stress is the last thing Meghan needs right now."

Either way, Meghan is remaining supportive of the Queen during this difficult time for the royals:

"Meghan said attending or not attending Prince Philip's funeral isn't going to change her relationship with the Queen. She said the Queen understands her absence and would want her to stay safe and healthy for the baby. Meghan said this is the opportune time for [Harry] to mend his relationship with his brother and his dad. She doesn't need to be there for that."
