Meghan Markle reflected on the loss of the Queen in her new interview with Variety as she commended the outpouring of love for the late monarch. Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu shared her opinion on the new interview, tweeting to her 160,000 followers: “Good for Meghan Markle – enjoy yourself. Life’s too short.

“You know even talking about the ‘nice warmth’ she had with the Queen will p*** off the haters. They’ll find something to complain about.”

The new interview saw the Duchess of Sussex describing the Queen as “the most shining example” of female leadership as she reflected on the late monarch’s death.

Meghan was in the UK with husband Prince Harry when Her Majesty died on September 8. 

Prince Harry rushed to be by her side in Balmoral, with the couple’s spokesperson confirming Meghan was joining him in Scotland. 

But this was later retracted, as it was reported King Charles said it “would not be appropriate” for the Duchess to come. 

Meghan said the outpouring of love following the Queen’s death was a testament to her legacy.

Prior to her state funeral, thousands of Brits queued for hours to see her lying in state at Westminster Hall. 

More than 29 million people in the UK watched the live broadcast of her funeral.

“I’m really grateful that I was able to be with my husband to support him, especially during that time,” Meghan said.

“Certainly, in terms of female leadership, she [the Queen] is the most shining example of what that looks like.”

Meghan added that Harry had found comfort in knowing that his grandmother is now “reunited with her husband”.

Speaking of her relationship with the Queen, Meghan said she feels “deep gratitude to have been able to spend time with [the Queen] and get to know her”.

Affirming that the couple had a positive relationship with the Queen, Meghan said: “I’ve reflected on that first official engagement that I had with her, how special that felt. I feel fortunate.

“And I continue to be proud to have had a nice warmth with the matriarch of the family.”

Meghan and Harry have since returned to their home in Montecito to be with their children Archie, three, and Lilibet, one. 

In a statement, released on 12 September, Harry described his grandmother as his “guiding compass” and praised her “unwavering grace and dignity”.

“Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings – from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my commander in chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren,” Harry said.
