Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Denied Ride To U.S. On Air Force One After Queen’s Funeral: Report

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were reportedly denied a ride back to the United States on Air Force One from the U.K. following Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral last year.

Sources told the Daily Mail that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were reportedly denied by White House staff when they inquired about returning to the States on Air Force One with President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden after the late monarch’s state funeral in September 2022.

Insiders reportedly told the outlet that the request was a “non-starter” and would have caused a “commotion.”

“It would have caused such a commotion,” one source said. “It would have strained relations with the palace and the new [King Charles III].”

The Daily Mail noted that both the White House and Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the story. The outlet also wrote that a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess did not respond to a request for comment either.

The Daily Wire reached out to the White House and has yet to receive a response.

The news comes after the Sussexes experienced a string of bad luck. In June, reports surfaced that Spotify would not be renewing the former “Suits” actress’ “Archetypes” podcast for a second season. The streaming site announced that Markle and her royal husband had “mutually agreed to part ways” with Spotify after the coupled signed an agreement in 2020 for $20 million, Page Six noted.

Markle’s company, Archewell Audio, which she co-founded with Prince Harry, produced 12 episodes of the first season, which aired from August to November 2022.

A representative for WME, a talent agency that recently hired Markle, said: “Meghan is continuing to develop more content for the Archetypes audience on another platform.”

Earlier this year, the royals made news following their alleged “near catastrophic car chase” in New York City with “aggressive” paparazzi, that had many skeptical of their narrative.

A spokesperson for the royals originally said, “Last night, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Ms. [Doria] Ragland were involved in a near catastrophic car chase at the hands of a ring of highly aggressive paparazzi.”

Shortly after, the NYPD, who assisted the private security team protecting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, released a statement to The Daily Wire that read, “There were numerous photographers that made their transport challenging. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at their destination and there were no reported collisions, summonses, injuries, or arrests in regard.”
