Queen Elizabeth feared Prince Harry was too in love with Meghan Markle

Queen Elizabeth II thought grandson Prince Harry was “perhaps a little too in love” with his new bride Meghan Markle, according to an upcoming biography.

“This was as far as she came – as far as I know – to ever utter a word against the new Duchess of Sussex,” British broadcaster Gyles Brandreth wrote in “Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait.”

The late British monarch was “really delighted” when her grandson said he was going to marry Markle, according to the book due to be published in December.

“She loved Meghan and told a lot of people. And she did everything she could to make her future granddaughter feel welcome,” said the biography, which was excerpted in the Daily Mail.

The Queen was not even put off by Sussex’s infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“I can tell you, knowing this, that the Queen was always more concerned with Harry’s well-being than with ‘this television nonsense’, by which I meant both the interview with Oprah Winfrey – which caused so much controversy – and the lucrative deal with the Sussexes made with Netflix,” wrote Brandreth, a former MP who has long known the royal family.

Elizabeth II reportedly loved Meghan Markle.

The queen, according to the biography, had a form of myeloma.

The Queen reportedly didn't care about Sussex's Netflix deal.

The Queen was reportedly happy that Prince Harry was marrying Meghan.

He wrote that the monarch was “afraid that Harry would ‘find his feet’ in California and ‘find really useful things to do.’”

Brandreth also revealed in the book that he had “heard that the Queen had a form of myeloma – bone marrow cancer – which would explain her fatigue and weight loss and those ‘mobility problems’ we were told about over the last year or so of her life.”

The Queen died in September at the age of 96 with the official cause of death being old age.
