Meghan Markle may have chosen her friend over Queen Elizabeth II.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex snubbed the monarch’s invite to spend the summer with her in Balmoral. According to an insider, Prince Harry and Markle have no plans to fly to Scotland because Archie was too young to travel. The insider found it a bit odd as the couple just took their son to Ibiza and Nice.

Royal correspondent Emily Andrews of The Sun added that Markle’s spokeswoman said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were “too busy” with work. However, it turned out that Markle still has time to support a friend after refusing to visit the Queen in her favorite home.

According to news reports, Markle flew to New York to support her friend Serena Williams. Markle saw how her close pal won the semi-final of the US Open on TV and made a last-minute decision to fly to the U.S. to cheer on Williams live in the finals.

“The Duchess was thinking of flying out to support Serena after she won the quarter finals on Tuesday,” a source told the publication. “She stayed up late on Thursday and into the early hours to watch her in the semis. When she won, Meghan was like ‘let’s go!’ She’s really excited to support her friend and then come back.”

Less than seven hours after watching Williams' victory, Markle boarded a flight to the U.S. The Duchess of Sussex is believed to have flown out without any staff. However, she would be accompanied by her royal protection police officers.

As for Prince Harry and Markle not joining Queen Elizabeth II in Balmoral, an insider said that the monarch was “ disappointed.” Markle has not been to the Queen’s Scottish home yet as she also missed the opportunity to visit last year because she was in the early stages of her pregnancy with baby Archie.

Many believed that Markle wasn’t in for spending summer in Balmoral. The duchess is not into hunting, and when royals are in Scotland, their vacation is usually all about hunting, shooting and fishing.

In related news, Kate Middleton is reportedly getting better publicity than Markle. Just recently, the Duchess of Cambridge was praised after she dropped Princess Charlotte in school.
