What's considered disappointing news to Queen Elizabeth II may be music to Meghan Markle's ears.

Around this time each year, the royal family gets to enjoy some much-needed downtime. For the Queen, this means heading to Balmoral -- her summer home located in Scotland. While there, other members of the British royal family tend to stop by and partake in activities with Her Royal Highness.

This year, however, one of the Queen's most favorite past times has been canceled -- grouse shooting.  The Scottish Highlands have experienced a shortage of birds and, according to Hello, "extreme weather and an outbreak of heather beetle" are to blame.

This may be disappointing news for the 93-year-old monarch but not so much for Meghan, who is a known animal lover and tries to eat vegan. Her distaste for the sport was so apparent that Prince Harry allegedly refused to join in on the festivities last year.  

Although HRH and the former "Suits" actress may disagree on how to spend their free time, it will likely not have an effect on their relationship, which has grown quite strong in a short amount of time. 

“Meghan seems to have forged a particularly close relationship with the Queen if you compare that to when other people have married into the royal family,” royal expert Duncan Larcombe previously explained.

Thankfully, for both the Queen and Duchess of Sussex, there are plenty of other activities to partake in while at Balmoral Castle.
