Prince Philip Advised Harry Not To Marry Meghan Markle

Grandpa Said “One Steps Out With Actresses, One Doesn’t Marry Them”

Is there anyone who didn’t object to Prince Harry’s choice of wife? Turns out, dear old Grandpa, Prince Philip advised him not to marry Meghan Markle.

Alas, big brother Prince William wasn’t the only member of the royal family who seemed wary of the prospect of Harry marrying the American actress of the TV show ‘Suits’ fame.

According to a report by UK’s Sunday Times, Harry’s 98 year old grandfather said to him, “One steps out with actresses, one doesn’t marry them.”

Philip is Queen Elizabeth’s husband and hails from Greece. He allegedly made the remarks as Harry’s relationship with Meghan progressed and became more serious. However, the 34 year old did not heed Grandpa’s advice and the couple married in May.

Last month, Harry and Meaghan welcomed a son, Archie. Prince Philip is believed to have a close relationship with his grandson and was recently spotted with his great-grandson Archie, despite his prior objection to the marriage. 

This is not the first instance where Prince Philip has waded into the topic of marriage:  In 1997 he said “Tolerance is the one essential ingredient. You can take it from me that the Queen has the quality of tolerance in abundance.”
