US Weekly: The Queen Is Disappointed in Harry for Bringing Unwanted Attention to His Family and Hopes He Sees Things Clearly In Time

The drama surrounding the British royal family is continuing to brew up, with a new report confirming that the Queen is furious with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over their role in escalating tensions to current levels.

 Us Weekly reported a move by the Sussexes to trademark their "Sussex Royal" title before announcing their decision to step back from their royal duties earlier this month.

A palace insider familiar with the situation explained to the magazine that the Queen is disappointed that the drama is brewing from the actions of her grandchild, and the timing of it all makes for an even more awkward situation.

The drama stems from the strategic exit that Meghan and the Prince took earlier this year when they announced their departure from the royal family after trademarking their foundation.

Although Buckingham Palace had prohibited them from using the "Sussex Royal" name, both are now legally at liberty to do so – a situation that has caused a headache across the royal family.

✈️🎖The Queen, Honorary Air Commodore visited @rafmarham in Norfolk today. The Royal Family have long supported the air base. Swipe ➡️ to see a photograph of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother visiting personnel in 1988. RAF Marham is a military airbase, with over 3600 working personnel. The airbase provides engineering support across the RAF and is home to the F-35B Lightning, a military aircraft. The Queen visited the Integrated Training Centre, which provides future pilots with thorough training and enables them to qualify as a Lightning Plane pilot. Her Majesty watched a demonstration of simulation-based training. This special training enables new pilots to practice flying planes without being in the air.

Despite the many troubles, the Queen will still have her work cut out for her as she works out a seamless transition for Meghan and the Prince. 

Sources have confirmed that she will be reviewing the terms of their exit from the royal family within a year. The couple has also been posting details of their ongoing negotiations on their website.

The insider also pointed out what seemed to be snide references at other members of the royal family.

Having attended the 10th Annual One Young World opening ceremony on Tuesday, The Duchess of Sussex was joined today by The Duke of Sussex for a round table discussion on gender equity with OYW and Queen’s Commonwealth Trust young leaders. Over the last few days, these young leaders became @OneYoungWorld ambassadors with the intention to return to their communities and further existing initiatives to help change the world for the better. This year OYW partnered with the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, of which The Duke and Duchess are President and Vice-President respectively, to provide scholarships to young leaders driving positive social impact in the Commonwealth. This was the most exciting collaboration between two groups The Duchess is passionate about and has been working with for some time.

One such update recently sparked another wave of controversy. According to a media report from The Daily Mail, Meghan and the Prince claimed on their website that the Crown had no right over the trademarked word in question.

They also emphasized that they would have been unable to stop them if they hadn't chosen to relinquish the title on their terms.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London. WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports. The Duke, who first came to these awards over a decade ago, shared in his remarks tonight: “Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child - no one else did at the time, but we did - and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tightly during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time.  And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.” • To find out more about tonight’s event and how you can support this very special organisation, please visit @WellChild Photos ©️ PA images

As for the Sussexes themselves, they seem to be adjusting to life outside of the Palace as they are settling well in Canada.

A report by a media outlet, "People," states that Harry recently made an appearance in Scotland, where he requested that they refer to him by his first name alone.
