Meghan Markle has reportedly made a 'very brave' request to King Charles III after attending Queen Elizabeth's funeral this week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined the royal family in mourning following the Queen's passing on 8 September and took part in the official procession during yesterday's funeral (19 September).

Meghan was seen shedding tears outside of Westminster Abbey following the Queen's funeral while standing with Camilla, the Queen Consort, Kate, the Princess of Wales, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

But it has since emerged that before the couple return to their home in California, Meghan intends to 'clear the air' with the royals.

According to entertainment reporter Neil Sean, Meghan has written a formal letter to new monarch King Charles III to request a private conversation with him.

Mr Sean claims that 'a very good source' has let him know that Meghan is hoping for a one-on-one with her father-in-law.

Spilling the details on YouTube, he told his viewers: "It would be an opportunity to clear the air, pull the rights from wrongs and explain some of the rationale behind what they've been doing over the last two years.

"Now, you know, you have to admire Meghan's self-belief, whatever you think. Truthfully, we have no idea if this is going to go forward."

The rift began back in 2020, when Harry and Meghan announced they would be stepping down as senior members of the royal family, confirming that they would split their time between the UK and the States.

A year later, the couple spoke out in a shocking tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, featuring some shocking allegations about the Firm.

Perhaps one of the most scandalous claims made by the couple was that an unnamed senior member of the royal family had expressed concerns over their son Archie's skin colour.

While claiming it wasn't Queen Elizabeth or Prince Philip, the couple refused to share who had expressed the concerns, insisting that it 'would be very damaging to them'.

Elsewhere in the two-hour interview, Meghan revealed that she had suffered from depression and suicidal thoughts as a result of the intense attacks from tabloid media, but received no help from the royal family when she asked.

In the year following the bombshell interview, Meghan and Harry have made the odd appearance back in the UK for special occasions, but are spending the majority of their time in California raising their two children.

It would seem as though the couple are now looking to repair any fractured relationships with the royals in the wake of Harry's grandmother's passing.

Despite the strained relationship between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the rest of the royal family, Meghan had always spoken fondly of Queen Elizabeth and spoken about their close relationship.

There's every chance that King Charles will be open to Meghan's request, after 'expressing his love' for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in his first official speech.
