Express Royal Correspondent Richard Palmer told Royal Round Up host Pandora Forsyth the Queen was “worried” about the then newly-married royals when they lived in the UK. Amid a media storm and increasingly hostile relations with the British public, the Queen “quite regularly” visited her grandson and Ms Markle “to make sure they were okay”, Mr Palmer claimed. It comes as Prince Harry received fresh criticism for his keynote speech at the UN General Assembly on Monday, and the pair brace for the release of a new Tom Bower biography detailing the couple’s bitter split from the Royal Family.
Mr Palmer said: “I do know that when the Sussex’s were living at Windsor, the Queen was popping in to see them quite regularly.
“She was worried about how unhappy and unsettled they were.
“So, I was told at one point that she was going around to see them to make sure they were okay.”
Ms Forsyth said: “And the fact that they moved as well, now, she can’t exactly pop round for a cup of tea.”
In the latest round of criticism of the Sussex’s, Prince Harry received scorn for speaking out against the US constitution during his speech in New York marking International Nelson Mandela Day.
The British Prince warned of the “rolling back of constitutional rights” in a slight to the Supreme Court over their recent overturning of Roe v Wade.
Earlier on the Royal Round Up, Mr Palmer said the Duke had become a “divisive figure” in the US, and that he and Ms Markle had “got people’s backs up” during the speech.
It comes as biographer Tom Bower prepares to release his new book, entitled Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, which looks set to spark a media storm.
