PRINCE Philip is “very disappointed” that Meghan Markle hasn’t supported the monarchy, an expert has claimed.
The Duke of Edinburgh, 99, couldn’t understand why the Duchess of Sussex couldn’t give up her career as he had been forced to do when the Queen ascended the throne in 1952.
Speaking to Sky News, royal biographer Ingrid Seward explained: “I think he's very, very disappointed because I think he feels he gave up his naval career in order to stand by the Queen and help the monarchy.
“And why can't Meghan just give up her acting career, support her husband and support the monarchy?
“As he used to say to Diana, this is not a popularity contest, this is all of us working together.
“He just cannot understand why she couldn't support Harry and help him rather than wanting to have her voice.”
It was for this reason that Seward says that Prince Philip chose not to take part in talks about his grandson’s future at the Sandringham Summit in January.
She continued: “Of course, it irritates him hugely. And when they had the Sandringham Summit, Prince Philip was seen leaving the house very swiftly before they all arrived.”
“He simply doesn't want to get involved anymore.”
Earlier this year we told you how Philip was left "furious" over the Sussexes' decision to step down as senior royals with a source claiming he was "spitting blood."
A source said: “To say that the Duke feels let down would be a considerable understatement. He is deeply hurt.
“He spends much of his time now confined to his cottage at Sandringham.
“But he was spitting blood when aides informed him what had happened.
“He has left the Queen in absolutely no doubt about how he feels. Philip has accused Harry and Meghan of lacking respect and he is weary of their behaviour.
“They did not spend Christmas with the family — which he and the Queen accepted — and now this. His primary concern is the impact this is having on the Queen.
“A lot of Philip’s anger comes from seeing Her Majesty upset.”
In other royal news, we told you how Meghan showed "clear signs of anger" at the talk at the £10k-a-head event.
And Piers Morgan slammed "whining" Meghan after her interview.
Plus Meghan yesterday lost a court battle to block claims she allegedly co-operated with the authors of Finding Freedom.
