As the British Royal Family prepares for Prince Philip’s funeral on Saturday, April 17, Meghan Markle is once again in the headlines. The former Suits star recently stated that she “forgives” the Royal Family for their treatment of her. Meanwhile, Australian TV host, Edwina Bartholemew, of the breakfast show Sunrise, has had enough of Markle. On an episode of the show, Edwina told Meghan bluntly to “just shut up.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Philip’s funeral
The official storyline was that Meghan Markle would not attend Prince Philip’s funeral on her physician’s orders. She is due to give birth to her and Harry’s daughter imminently. However, it turns out her actual reason for not accompanying Harry was the fact that she didn’t want to make herself the “center of attention.”
This fact is what led to Australian TV host, Edwina Bartholemew, 37, to let rip while reporting on today’s funeral. Speaking of Harry and Meghan, the Sunrise host says she has reserved judgment about “those two” for quite some time. However, she says if it is true that Meghan didn’t want to make herself the “center of attention,” that just makes her “so angry.”
Bartholemew did acknowledge that Markle was probably correct in predicting that her presence at the funeral would steal the spotlight. However, she was angry that Meghan made sure this was known.
In the video included here, Edwina addresses Markle directly. She tells her, “Just go with the palace line, wouldn’t you, for once,” adding the words “Just shut up.”
Australian TV host slammed for comments about Meghan Markle
Many viewers were angry with Edwina for her statement. They called her a hypocrite for needing to be outspoken in her opinions while attacking Markle for doing the same thing.
Others accused Bartholemew of attacking a pregnant woman, saying if she wants to throw her “career and credibility away by simpering to the Palaces,” they could certainly help her in that endeavor.

However, when someone tweeted that “Edwina should shut up,” Bartholemew replied that she “agreed.” However, as noted by Perth Now, she wrote that she sincerely hopes Meghan and Harry reconcile with the Royal Family this week and they can all shut up about it.
Meghan Markle ‘forgives’ the Royal Family
The revelations made by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the recent interview with Oprah Winfrey shocked the world. Since then, Markle has made it known that she is “willing to forgive and move forward.”
The Express ran a poll among royal fans, asking whether the Royal Family should put their differences aside. Fans were also polled, asking if the Duchess of Sussex should herself ask the royals for forgiveness.
The results of the poll revealed that only 5 percent of those polled were of the opinion that the family should just move on. Meanwhile, 94 percent of the participants believed that the Royal Family should continue having their differences dividing them.
Royal fans slam Meghan Markle
Royal fans were outraged by Markle’s offer to forgive the Royal Family. They believe it should be the other way around. One fan added that it would then be up to the Queen to decide if she would accept the apology.
Another royal fan slammed Markle’s olive branch. In fact, they wrote, “How big of her.” They wrote that the Royal Family should tell her that it is very “generous” of her to offer them forgiveness. However, they added that Markle should offer it instead to her own family, particularly her father.
Prince Philip’s funeral is being held in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Palace on Saturday. The funeral can be seen online.
