A shocking new report claims Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke up with the Queen — over email.
It also claims the Millennials ran roughshod over palace staff while they strove for a showbiz-based lifestyle, and old-fashioned notions like “family first” flew out the window as Archie has only met his cousins twice in his short life.
One royal insider told the Daily Mail, “Harry has given up everything, literally everything. He has burnt every single bridge back at home. And Meghan? Well, I rather think she’s got what she wanted …”

The “self-absorbed” couple were furious that Meghan was branded “difficult and demanding” — especially after she made Kate Middleton cry during wedding preparations — even though Meghan refused to kowtow to protocol.
“One of the earliest signs that Meghan was determined to do it her way occurred when the Queen invited her to Chester after her wedding in June 2018,” the Mail wrote. “The Queen’s powerful personal assistant, Angela Kelly, sent a message that Her Majesty would be wearing a hat — polite Palace code for ‘you should be wearing one too’. The message came back that Meghan preferred to go bare-headed.”
Later came the news that Harry and Meghan’s staff was turning over at an alarming rate for several reasons, including her penchant for emailing at all hours of the night and demanding instant gratification while complaining about clothing allowances and home renovations.

One aggrieved royal insider told the Mail: “People had bent over backwards. They were given the wedding they wanted, house they wanted, office they wanted, the money they wanted, staff they wanted, tours they wanted and had the backing of their family. What more did they want?”
Meanwhile, William and Harry had fallen out after William questioned Harry’s decision to marry Meghan so soon after they’d met.
Harry and Meghan felt ostracised — their only unity being each other.

“They felt that the institution only wanted to trot them out to exploit their popularity when convenient. Otherwise it wanted to constrain because it was jealous and threatened by their popularity,” a source told the Mail, while another said, “They felt the family just couldn’t handle them. They felt trapped and believed senior Establishment figures, including William, were trying to derail them.”
After a “summer of hell” Harry and Meghan went to tour Africa — and gave a disastrous interview to ITV bemoaning their emotional health. Soon after, they left for a “vacation” in Canada – after introducing their son Archie to his cousins only twice. Within weeks, the couple decided to make the move permanent, emailing their decision to leave the family to Prince Charles and the Queen.
