The Obamas are being isolated by Meghan Markle and Harry, who resent the Sussexes’ “assault on family.”
MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry were absent from Barack Obama’s 60th birthday party this weekend, according to a source, because the former US President and his wife resent the Sussexes’ attacks on the Royal Family.
On Saturday night, Barack Obama celebrated his 50th birthday in style, with hundreds of A-listers flocking to his £12 million Massachusetts estate for a night of cocktails, live entertainment, and gourmet cuisine. Jay-Z and Beyonce were among the guests, as were Tom Hanks, Stephen Spielberg, and George Clooney, but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were absent from the star-studded affair. The couple’s absence could be owing to their recent public attacks on the Royal Family, according to an expert. It’s unclear if they were left off the invite list or declined to go.
Family values are especially important to the Obamas, according to Camilla Tominey, associate editor of the Telegraph who specializes in the Royal Family.
Meghan and Harry’s recent sit-down appearance with Oprah Winfrey, she said, may have alienated them.
“Seeing Harry and Meghan being so openly critical of their Royal relatives during their Oprah interview in March will undoubtedly not have gone over especially well with a couple who have always placed ‘family first,’” she said.
An insider confirmed this, claiming that Mr. and Mrs. Obama were not fans of press interviews.
“The Obamas didn’t like Harry assaulting his family,” they told the publication.
“They respect family and aren’t the type of parents who would want their children to speak to the press.”
Michelle said she hopes the Royal Family can overcome their issues since “nothing is more important than family,” implying that the couple disapproved of Meghan and Harry’s two-hour appearance with Oprah.
“My goal is that when I think about what they’re going through, I think about the value of family, and I just wish that there is forgiveness and clarity and love and resolve at some point in time,” she stated in an interview with Access Hollywood.
“Because family is the most important thing in the world.”
The Obamas are known to have had a close relationship with the Queen and other senior royals, having met with them multiple times while President and First Lady of the United States. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
