The Duchess of Sussex, Megan Markle has stayed back in California despite other members of the royal family being in London to mourn and for the funeral of the Queen’s Husband, Prince Phillip.

THE VENT REPUBLIC reports that the six months pregnant Megan told her close-knitted friends she doesn’t want to be the center of attraction at Prince Philip’s funeral.
