While Meghan Markle has fallen out of favor with nearly the entire royal family, she could be secretly nursing a close relationship with one of Prince Harry’s cousins, according to a report.
Fiercely loyal and notoriously private Princess Beatrice — the eldest daughter of alleged pervert Prince Andrew — appears to have lent her royal digs to the couple for the filming of their bombshell Netflix documentary, the DailyMail reported.
One picture from the series features Harry and Meghan giddily sipping cups of tea inside the Queen’s Wendy House on the grounds of the Royal Lodge of Windsor.
The Sussexes can be seen sitting in children’s chairs near the front windows of the outsized playhouse, which has been in Beatrice’s possession since the Queen gifted it to her in 2010.
It is not clear whether Beatrice knew what the exact nature of the Netflix series — which exposed several family feuds and secrets — was when she let the controversial couple bring the cameras inside, the outlet said.
Beatrice has seemingly maintained the friendly relationship that started when Meghan was still an American actress. The two became friends through younger sister Eugenie, who shares best friend fashion designer Misha Nonoo with Meghan.
The 34-year-old princess also reportedly keeps in close contact with Harry — all of the royal cousins keep in contact in a WhatsApp group chat.
Other members of the Windsor line, particularly Prince William, Kate Middleton and King Charles, are expected to give the Duke and Duchess the cold shoulder if they decide to attend the historic Coronation in May, which the couple will only attend if the royals give into a series of demands.
Beatrice has never publicly commented on her cousin and cousin-in-law’s dramatic departure from the royal family or the ensuing chaos.
The Duke and Duchess returned the silent favor, but openly criticized her father Prince Andrew’s alleged ties to Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking scheme.
Harry called the scandal “embarrassing” in his recently released memoir and compared the alleged crimes to his and Meghan’s perceived offenses.
“People may have a lot of grievances towards us, but sexual offenses weren’t one of them,” Harry whined.
