Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly snubbing Queen Elizabeth II again.

According to Express, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have left Her Majesty “hurt” for snubbing her Christmas invitation. New reports claim that Prince Harry and Markle will be spending Christmas in the U.S. and will not be joining the Queen, Prince William, Kate Middleton and the rest of the members of the royal family in Sandringham. The couple reportedly wants some time away to recharge and decide their plans for next year.

“Christmas at Sandringham can be quite stressful so perhaps they don’t want to go with Archie at such a young age. Having said that, Sandringham has played host to many many children through the ages and is well set up for them,” royal biographer Ingrid Seward said.

“I think it’s sad they don’t want to be part of the family gathering, particularly now the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are in their dotage. The Queen might be a little hurt but she’s far too gracious to ever let it show or be known.”

Ingrid believes that Prince Harry and Markle’s decision has nothing to do with their son but more on their personal feelings. Meanwhile, royal expert Dan Wootton said that the couple is considering a potential part-time move in California because Markle’s mother Doria Ragland is there.

This is not the first time Prince Harry and Markle allegedly snubbed the Queen’s invitation. Several sources said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also denied the Queen’s request for them to join her in Balmoral last summer.

According to an insider, Queen Elizabeth II was disappointed that they didn’t spend the summer with her in Scotland. The couple reportedly felt that their son Archie was too young to travel. However, the same source questioned it, saying that it was “a bit odd” because the couple acually took Archie to Ibiza and then to France.

In related news, Prince William spoke for Prince Harry and Markle for the first time amid their rumored rift during his speech in his recent engagement with Middleton. According to the future king, he and his wife, as well as Prince Harry and Markle, are proud of Shout’s accomplishments and what the organization is still about to accomplish.
