Meghan Markle is claimed to have requested a ‘one-to-one’ meeting with King Charles to heal rifts before her departure to California with Harry after the Queen‘s funeral, a royal reporter has alleged.
Neil Sean, an entertainment correspondent who has appeared on NBC News, MSNBC and Access Hollywood, said that he had heard from a ‘very good source’ that the American actress had sent a letter requesting a private conversation with the King.
Mr Sean claims that Meghan wants to ‘clear the air’ amid reports the couple will fly back to the US as soon as they can to see their children, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.
The Sussexes are believed to be in Windsor today after the extraordinary state funeral and burial of the Queen yesterday.
‘That’s right—Meghan one-to-one with King Charles. You heard correct.
‘It’s a very brave move from Meghan herself,’ Sean said.

Detailing the content of the letter, he said: ‘It would be an opportunity to clear the air, pull the rights from wrongs and explain some of the rationale behind what they’ve been doing over the last two years.
‘Now, you know, you have to admire Meghan’s self-belief, whatever you think.’
However, Sean warned it remains unclear if the letter will be enough for the couple to make amends with the Royal Family.
‘Truthfully, we have no idea if this is going to go forward.’
Sean said it was customary to request the King’s presence through a letter.
‘This is how you write to the King through his equity, and of course that’s passed on,’ he told his YouTube channel.

Yesterday, Prince William and Harry put aside their feud for a united front to remember the monarch, and again showed that they could at least be on speaking terms as they interacted with each other in the chapel at Windsor Castle.
William was seen walking to the end of the pew while holding back his son Prince George next to wife Kate Middleton and daughter Princess Charlotte, as he beckoned for Harry and Meghan to walk past them.
Harry and Meghan then took their seats, with the Duke of Sussex sitting next to Charlotte. Kate was sat in between Charlotte and George, with the nine-year-old prince next to William who was on the end of the pew.
The royals had followed behind the Queen’s coffin into the chapel after it was lifted from the state hearse and carried in ahead of the service at 4pm. The procession was led in by members of the Queen’s royal household.
Once again King Charles III followed behind the coffin, with Queen Consort Camilla, as well as Princess Anne and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence behind, then Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
At the end of the day, Harry was seen puffing his cheeks as he got into a car with Meghan, following an emotional day.
The Duke of Sussex and other royals, including King Charles III and the Queen Consort, Camilla, were pictured leaving St George’s Chapel in Windsor yesterday afternoon after a moving committal service for the late monarch.
Earlier, William and Harry also walked together behind the Queen’s coffin in London in emotional scenes before it was carried into Westminster Abbey by the military bearer party for her state funeral.

It marked the fourth day in just over a week that Harry and William have carried out engagements together, with royal observers hoping they are making first steps to put their troubled relationship behind them.
The brothers also followed behind the Queen’s coffin for a procession to Westminster Hall last Wednesday; a vigil over the coffin on Saturday; and a walkabout with Kate and Meghan outside Windsor Castle on September 10.
While William and Harry have put aside their disagreements for royal events in recent days, fears over the content of Harry’s upcoming memoir continue to cast a cloud over their relationship – especially following…
