Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly hurt and disappointed with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for not visiting her in Balmoral last summer.

Instead of spending time at the monarch’s vacation home, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex together with their son, Archie, traveled to Nice and Ibiza. Markle also flew to the United States to watch Serena Williams’ tennis match.

As such, royal experts are convinced that the excuse that the Sussexes were very busy that’s why they couldn’t visit the Queen was nothing more than that.

A source also said that the Queen was looking forward to a few merry days of chaos with her relatives and loved ones including Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The Sun tried to contact palace insiders to get first-hand information on why Prince Harry and Markle didn’t go to Balmoral this summer. However, they were unable to get a response.

Weeks ago, it was reported that Prince Harry and Markle have been welcomed into Balmoral by the Queen especially since it will be the first time for Archie to visit his great-grandparents there.

Reports also swirled that the Queen wanted to be very accommodating with the Sussexes that’s why she refused to welcome Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their three children into her vacation home.

According to Vanity Fair, Her Majesty’s decision to host the Sussexes just strengthened the rumors that she favors them over the Cambridges. But to everyone’s surprise, Prince William and Middleton were previously photographed arriving in Balmoral after their short family vacation.

Prince Harry and Markle were never photographed arriving or leaving the castle with their son. There are speculations suggesting that the royal couple actually skipped their vacation with their relatives this year because they are still at odds with Prince William and Middleton.

The alleged feud between the royal couples started even before Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle last year.
