  • Meghan Markle is more disappointed at Queen Elizabeth than Prince Harry
  • The royal couple's statement wasn't directed at Her Majesty 

Meghan Markle is reportedly disappointed at Queen Elizabeth’s decision to ban her and Prince Harry from using the Sussex Royal brand.

A close friend of the Duchess of Sussex told Radar Online that Her Majesty suddenly placed a lot of pressure on the royal couple’s branding weeks after they announced their bombshell exit. Initially, the monarch didn’t prevent Prince Harry and Markle from using Sussex Royal.

“The Queen has put pressure on the couple’s branding. This happened after the incessant backlash from when they announced they were taking a backseat to the royal family. It’s fair to say Meghan is more disappointed than Harry is about having to get rid of Sussex Royal,” the source said.

As of late, there is no proof that Markle is more disappointed at the Queen’s decision than Prince Harry. But it is evident that the Duchess of Sussex is being blamed more after she and the Duke of Sussex released a statement in response to the monarch’s decision.

“Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan accused Markle and Prince Harry of disrespecting the Queen especially at her delicate age of 93.

During her appearance on ITV’s “Loose Women,” royal commentator Jane Moore claimed that the royal couple’s statement wasn’t necessarily aimed at the Queen but on Princess Diana.

“They’ve employed a big showbiz publicist so obviously they do want to be in the papers or in the media. Harry’s mum, Diana, always used to talk about the grey men of the Palace and for sure, there are people in the Palace who have worked there for years and think a certain way and they’re always briefing behind the scenes. I think this statement is aimed more at them from Harry than it is actually at his grandmother. I think he actually adores his grandmother,” she said.

Prince Harry and Markle have agreed to not use the Sussex Royal brand after their exit from the royal family becomes official at the end of March.
