Meghan Markle stepped out for a solo night in Hollywood, looking stunning, just hours after shocking revelations about the royals emerged. The Duchess of Sussex attended Variety's Power of Women event in LA, flashing a wide smile as she arrived.
A night out for Mum
When asked by Entertainment Tonight if it was a "Mum's night out," Meghan laughed and replied, "Exactly." The Duchess seemed to be enjoying her time at the event, despite the recent controversy surrounding her.
Bombshell claims in new book
Meghan and Prince Harry's friend, Omid Scobie, made explosive claims about their relationship with the royal family in his latest book, titled "Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy's Fight for Survival." According to Scobie, Meghan was not allowed to be by the Queen's side during her final moments.
Keeping Harry in the dark
Scobie also revealed that Prince Harry was unaware of his grandmother's declining health until he received a call from an unknown number, which turned out to be from his father, Prince Charles. It was alleged that Charles instructed Harry to travel to Scotland without Meghan, a decision Harry agreed to after learning that Kate would also not be attending.
Unwanted and ignored
The book claims that Meghan felt unwelcome during these events, with a former Palace aide stating, "They just didn't want Meghan there." Additionally, it was alleged that Prince William ignored his brother's messages when the Queen passed away.
These bombshell claims have caused outrage among royal insiders, who have criticized the book. An initial serialization of the book was published in People magazine yesterday afternoon.
