Queen Elizabeth is reportedly upset that 3 of her 4 children have all gotten divorced.
“Outwardly stoical, as ever, the Queen was finding the divorce talks deeply upsetting,” Robert Hardman wrote in his book, “Queen of Our Times: The Life of Queen Elizabeth II,” according to People. “Another former member of the Household recalls that, every now and then, there would be a glimpse of her despair.”
A former palace staffer told him about a conversation that allegedly went down.
“I said, ‘Ma’am, it seems to be happening everywhere. This is almost common practice,'” the source said, adding, “But she just said, ‘Three out of four!’ in sheer sadness and exasperation. One shouldn’t underestimate the pain she’s been through.”
Her son Charles and Diana divorced in 1996 amid his cheating scandal with Camilla Parker Bowles. Princess Anne was married to Mark Phillips from 1973 to 1992. Prince Andrew was married to Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York from 1986 to 1996. The prince was recently in the headlines for being linked to Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring. He recently settled the case to avoid going to trial.
Prince Edward has been married to Sophie, Countess of Wessex since 1999.
