They’ve made increasingly barbed comments about their perceived mistreatment at the hands of “The Firm”. And last month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly tested the royal family’s patience to the limit, after Prince Harry spoke out again against his family, accusing them of “neglect”, and saying his father has brought him up as part of a “cycle” of suffering.

But while Harry seems hell-bent on expressing his upset, sources tell us Meghan’s feeling apprehensive.

Meghan’s fears come amid reports that the Queen had signed off on Harry’s bombshell documentary series The Me You Can’t See back in 2018, but had “no idea” that he’d be slamming his childhood and Prince Charles’ parenting.
