Barack and Michelle Obama is pushing back against rumors that the couple recommended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to step back from the royal family.
Sussex royalities would step down from their role as senior members of the royal family. Some reports said that Prince Harry and several of Meghan’s famous friends had made recommendations, including those who claimed that the Obamas had pushed them away from the royal family for a break.
However, a source close to Obamas throws cold water on rumors, telling People magazine that there is no truth in reports and that Obamas has not been in contact with the royal couple recently.
Rumors that they have something to do with it are completely wrong. The former president and first lady do not advise couples and are not in contact with them, kaynak says a source close to Barack and Michelle.
Obamas had grown up close to the royal pair, Harry met Michelle, including Invictus Games in Orlando, Florida. Prince Harry also interviewed Barack for a radio show aimed at building next generation world leaders.
The report said that Barack and Michelle had close relations with Prince William and Kate Middleton during Barack’s term of office, and that it was not unusual to establish close relations with senior members of the British royal family.
There were a number of reports explaining that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were planning to isolate themselves from the royal family and life in London, but the couple did not give an official indication of their plans until this week’s surprising announcement.
