Meghan Markle feels she has “lost a family member” with the death of Prince Philip, according to royal commentators. The Duchess of Sussex’s grief was discussed by Nine Network Australia’s US Correspondent Alison Piotrowski on the Today Show. She noted that the Duke of Edinburgh had had a “strong relationship” with his granddaughter-in-law.

Ms Piotrowski told viewers: “Omid Scobie said that Meghan was incredibly sad this week because Philip was one of her favourites.

“She was incredibly fond of him.”

In a clip from Good Morning America, Mr Scobie said: “She’ll be sad because this is a loss of a family member for her.

“She grew very close to the Queen and Prince Philip over the recent years.”

He continued: “It was probably her strongest relationship within the family.

“Those relations then get smaller this week.”

The Duchess sent her personal condolences to the Queen since she could not attend in-person due to her late stage pregnancy.

Ms Piotrowski told the Today show: “A handwritten note from the Duchess of Sussex herself and also a wreath from the couple.”

She added: “We understand that they hired their favourite florist, Willow Crossley.

“They also used her for the flowers for their wedding and Archie’s christening.

“We understand that Harry and Meghan asked for the national flowers of Greece to be symbolic of Prince Philip’s heritage.”

The US Correspondent continued: “Also some holly to represent the Royal Marines.

“Lavender for devotion and roses to represent Philip’s birth month of June.

“So there was some really careful consideration in the wreath there.

“Also a handwritten note to the Queen from the Duchess of Sussex herself.

“We’ll never know what that said, but definitely seems to have been an olive branch of sorts.”
