The Queen died on Wednesday, at her favorite home — The Balmoral Castle in Scotland. Here’s what Wikipedia says about the estate: Balmoral Castle is a large estate house in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, which is a royal residence. It is near the village of Crathie, 9 miles west of Ballater and 50 miles west of Aberdeen. Balmoral has been one of the residences of the British royal family since 1852 when the estate and its original castle were bought from the Farquharson family by Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria. Soon afterwards the house was found to be too small and the current Balmoral Castle was commissioned. The architect was William Smith of Aberdeen, and his designs were amended by Prince Albert. Balmoral remains the private property of the monarch and is not part of the Crown Estate.
The castle is an example of Scottish baronial architecture and is classified by Historic Environment Scotland as a category A listed building. The new castle was completed in 1856 and the old castle was demolished shortly thereafter. The Balmoral Estate has been added to by successive members of the royal family, and now covers an area of approximately 50,000 acres. It is a working estate, including grouse moors, forestry, and farmland, as well as managed herds of deer, Highland cattle, sheep, and ponies.
And this is where the Queen took her last breath. It must’ve been a very special place to her. This is where the family rushed to be by her side in her final moments left on this earth. However, Meghan Markle was not one of those people who traveled to Balmoral. She stayed behind in the London area… and now we know why.
Page Six reported that Meghan Markle didn’t join Prince Harry at Balmoral Castle ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s death because she feared she wouldn’t be “warmly welcomed” by the royal family, a royal expert said.
While initial reports stated that the Duchess of Sussex would join the redheaded royal in Scotland, Page Six later confirmed that she didn’t make the trip with him.
“She might not be terribly warmly welcomed, to be perfectly candid about it,” BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said Thursday.
Harry, 37, was photographed arriving, unfortunately, hours after his grandmother died at age 96 after 70 years on the throne.
Although he didn’t make it in time, he and Markle, 41, paid somber tribute to Britain’s longest-reigning monarch by converting their Archewell Foundation website to show a black screen with a simple message written in white letters: “In loving memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 1926-2022.”
The royal family announced Thursday that the Queen died at her favorite home in the Scottish countryside.
That was a good call by Meghan, at least she has some common sense and understands how much trouble and chaos she’s caused.
