Queen Elizabeth died "hurt and exhausted" over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to abandon their royal duties.

According to Radar Online, the Queen was pained by their decision to move to the United States. The monarch reportedly regretted not spending time with her American-born great-grandkids.

A Buckingham Palace insider said the Queen didn't like to talk about Harry's decision to follow his wife to America.

"[The Queen] was very hurt and told me, 'I don't know, I don't care, and I don't want to think about it anymore,'" the source revealed.

The Queen's eldest son, King Charles, is reportedly in anguish that his mother died with a broken heart over her grandson's selfish decision.

King Charles reportedly refused to bestow the titles HRH on Harry and Meghan's kids, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1. His decision left Harry and Meghan "furious".

The Queen was so hurt that she rejected Harry and Meghan's plea for a photo with her namesake, Lilibet, during the Queen's Jubilee over the summer.

The Queen died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Sept. 8 at the age of 96.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been "uninvited" from attending King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla's reception at Buckingham Palace on Sunday, Sept. 18.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex won't dine with the royal family and world leaders on the eve of Queen Elizabeth's state funeral on Monday, Sept. 19.

According to Metro News, the reception will be attended by foreign royals and world leaders, including US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Ukrainian First Lady Olena Zelenska.

"It is thought to be one of the greatest gatherings of dignitaries and heads of state in the post-war era," Metro News reported.

Insiders say tensions linger because Harry and Meghan embarrassed Queen Elizabeth while she was alive.

The British blame Meghan for urging Harry to abandon his royal responsibilities and move to the US.

However, sources tell Newsweek that Harry and Meghan's invitation was a "genuine error" and that only "working members of the royal family" are allowed to attend the reception.

King Charles agreed to bestow the titles of "prince" and "princess" on his grandkids Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, but the King refuses to allow them to be known as "His Royal Highness" and "her Royal Highness" since the young foreigners are not working royals.

Meghan had hoped to unify the royal family after the Queen's death on Sept. 8, but tensions still linger because she bad-mouthed the Queen on multiple occasions.

According to the New York Post, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are "furious" that their American-born children won't receive the coveted HRH titles.

After Queen Elizabeth II died on Sept. 8, her eldest son and heir to the throne King Charles III agreed to bestow the titles of "Prince" and "Princess" on Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1.

But King Charles has refused to allow the children to be known as "His Royal Highness" and "Her Royal Highness".

Queen Elizabeth II stripped Harry and Meghan of their HRH titles after they abandoned their royal duties to seek fame and fortune in the US.

Royal experts say their children will not receive the HRH titles either.

"That is the agreement — they can be prince and princess but not HRH because they are not working royals," one insider told the Sun.

Harry and Meghan are reportedly furious over the latest snub, according to the UK newspaper. "They have been left furious that Archie and Lilibet cannot take the title HRH," said the insider.

In 2012, Queen Elizabeth II declared that all children born to Prince William (2nd from right) would be entitled to HRH titles. But not the children born to Harry (left).

Meghan told Oprah Winfrey that she considered the Queen's declaration to be racist because her children are mixed race. She was upset that her son, Archie, would not receive protection as a HRH.

So far, Archie and Lilibet are only referred to as "Master" and "Miss" on the official order of succession. The American children are sixth and seventh in line for the throne.

In a recent interview with Extra, Oprah Winfrey said she hoped the Queen's death would bring the royal families closer together and provide "an opportunity for peacemaking."

A royal guard fainted at Westminster Hall where the Queen of England is lying in state.

The closed coffin sits on a raised platform while a ring of ceremonial royal guards watches over it 24 hours a day.

BBC live footage showed one of the royal guards swaying, then tumbling off the raised platform.

Two officers sprinted over to the fallen guard, while the other royal guards remained completely still.

The BBC live feed cut to an exterior night shot of Westminster Hall after the guard collapsed around 1 a.m. Thursday.

The royal guards work six-hour shifts. The guard fainted as the next shift of ceremonial guards were about to swap places with him.

The Queen's coffin will remain in state at Westminster Hall until her funeral in Westminster Abbey on Monday, Sept 19.

World leaders, heads of state, and notable public figures from all over the world will be in attendance at the Queen's state funeral.

A royal expert said Kate Middleton, 40, and Prince William, 39, are "modern parents" who use "emotional intelligence" to discipline their three children.

American parents are not taught to use emotional intelligence to discipline their kids.

Thankfully the British royals have evolved beyond using barbaric methods to discipline their children Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and 4-year-old Prince Louis.

Kate and William have the eyes of the world upon them as they raise future kings of England.

Kate's struggle to balance motherhood with grace and elegance was on full display last week during the Platinum Jubilee Pageant when her son Louis' antics stole the show.

American moms were in awe of Kate's patience and willingness to let Prince Louis be a child.

Royal expert Jennie Bond tells OK! magazine, "I've read that they have a very modern way of parenting where, instead of putting your child on the naughty step, you allow your child to explain why they feel how they do and have a conversation about it so they can express themselves and calm down that way."

Bond said Kate and William are "making a good job of giving their children as much of a normal upbringing as possible."

Chris Jackson/Getty Images

"The result seems to be that they are children who are broadly well behaved," she said of Prince George and Princess Charlotte. She said Louis was simply being a normal 4 year old boy. "Louis didn't misbehave over the Jubilee, but he was mischievous as four year olds are," said Bond.

Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

Hilarity ensued when little Louis was caught on camera putting his hand over his mother's mouth to shush her.

But Americans noted how well-behaved Prince George and Princess Charlotte were during Sunday's pageant, which marked the finale of the 4-day Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

"I love how Prince George and Princess Charlotte sang along with their parents," one commenter wrote.

Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

Bond said Prince William and Kate should be commended for using emotional intelligence to discipline their children.

"The family dynamics look to be very normal," she said. "They both, William in particular, have spoken before about the importance of mental health and giving their children emotional intelligence and the space to tell their parents how they're feeling and what their emotions are."

Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

When Prince Louis went viral for hushing his mom during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, American moms said they could relate to having a naughty 4-year-old.

Prince Louis stole the show with his cheeky antics at numerous Jubilee events, including showing out at the Trooping of the Color parade last week.

During the weekend's closing event on June 5, the youngster was seen putting his hand over his mom, Kate Middleton's mouth while she gently chastised her youngest son for misbehaving.

Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

After the video clip went viral, some moms expressed how difficult it is to be in Kate's shoes.

An anonymous poster took to parenting forum Mumsnet to say that Kate, 40, was relatable to parents everywhere.

"I'd love to know what she threatened him with under her breath," the user wrote.

Some Internet users noted that Prince Louis' behavior was "bratty" and "annoying", but others say he was very normal for a four-year-old.

A few moms said they were grateful not to have to chastise their toddler in front of millions.

One woman wrote:

"God, it puts me into a cold sweat thinking about having to try to defuse a grumpy/overstimulated 4yo in front of a massive audience!"

However, Kate can only do so much with Louis. Her three children with Prince William, who is second in line to the throne, belong to the monarchy - not to their parents.

Kate can't punish or discipline her children, since technically, they belong to the Queen.

The late Princess Diana learned that lesson the hard way when the Queen of England took her sons, William and Harry, away from her after she was caught cheating on their father, Prince Charles.

Princess Diana later died in a horrific car crash when she and her boyfriend tried to flee the paparazzi on August 31, 1997 in Paris, France.

Prince Harry and his American wife, Meghan Markle, were booed as they left the National Service of Thanksgiving for The Queen's reign at Saint Paul's Cathedral in London on Friday, June 3.

The reaction of the crowd was noticeably different when Harry and Meghan left the church alone.

The former actress wore a cream monochrome outfit with matching hat, closed-toe pumps, and gloves. Prince Harry wore a traditional long sports coat and gray slacks. The Platinum Jubilee events continue in London through June 5.

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson were snubbed by Buckingham Palace after they flew all the way to London to attend Queen Elizabeth II's 2022 Platinum Jubilee.

Buckingham Palace has a strict guest list policy that prohibits outsiders and attention-seekers from attending the Platinum Jubilee festivities.

BACKGRID

Palace officials flatly rejected Kim's pleas for invites to the Platinum Jubilee official party after she and Pete flew across the pond to attend the festivities.

BACKGRID

Reps for Kim, 41, and Pete, 28, reportedly asked Buckingham Palace for invitations to the Platinum Party on Saturday. But officials turned the American couple down.

A source said Kim and Pete apparently believed they could snag invitations through other means, like they do in America.

BACKGRID

A platinum jubilee is a celebration to commemorate a monarch's 70th anniversary. Queen Elizabeth II is the most recent monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee.

The Platinum Jubilee is a very big deal in Great Britain and it is the hottest ticket in town.

Kim was so desperate to attend the Platinum Jubilee party that a source told the Daily Mail she didn't even mind if the tickets were "not VIP".

"Kim rarely gets turned down to attend any event," a source said. "So this has been quite surprising, especially as she doesn't visit the UK often. Kim and Pete love the Royal Family and really wanted to be a part of this special celebration."

Kim and Pete may be superstars in America, but they are commoners over in England.

Donald Trump is not a fan of England's Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle. The former U.S. president urged Queen Elizabeth II to strip Harry and Meghan Markle of all their royal titles for disrespecting the throne.

Trump described the Duke of Sussex as being "whipped like no person I think I've ever seen" (except for Will Smith). He added that Meghan was leading Harry "around by his nose".

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images

Trump told British journalist Piers Morgan: "Harry is whipped - do you know the expression, whipped? I won't use the full expression. But Harry is whipped like no person I think I've ever seen. I'm not a fan of Meghan, I'm not a fan, and I wasn't right from the beginning. I think poor Harry is being led around by his nose.

Trump's comments comes after Harry and Meghan stopped off in England to visit the Queen before attending his Invictus Games in the Netherlands. It was their first public appearance together in England since they denounced their duties and fled to Canada then America in search of fame.

America has not welcomed Harry and Megan with open arms. Their Netflix content has been described as "boring" and the public has shown little interest in their Spotify podcast.

Britains are still outraged that Harry did not attend his grandfather Prince Philip's memorial service last month. Prince Philip died of natural causes on April 9, 2021 at age 99.

Queen Elizabeth II held virtual meetings with the ambassadors of Chad and Andorra after recovering from COVID.

The British monarch held meetings via videolink from Windsor Castle more than a week after testing positive for the coronavirus. The Queen, who is triple vaccinated, experienced mild flu-like symptoms.

She spoke with Chad's ambassador to the United Kingdom, Kedella Younous Hamidi, and the Ambassador of Andorra, Carles Jordana Madero, at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

Even though she was on a monitor, the ambassadors still maintained a 6-foot distance from the screen in accordance with Britain's COVID restrictions.

In February, Instagram blogger Jason Lee reported the Queen was dead after he received a tip from a random person on social media.

Despite the Queen's appearance today, American conspiracy theorists still insist Her Majesty has a "body double".

If nothing else, Americans are persistent.

South Africa's Queen Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu died suddenly on Friday, April 30, weeks after her husband, the king, died of a diabetes-related illness.

Queen Mantfombi, 65, was one of King Goodwill Zwelithini's six wives. King Goodwill died on March 12, 2021 in the eastern city of Durban. He was 72.

The queen was elected the Regent of the Zulu Nation in line with the king's wishes.

His Majesty's will was read in the presence of more than 200 members of the Royal Family on March 24, 2021.

AFP via Getty Images

King Zwelithini (pictured left) is survived by five wives and 28 children. He married his sixth wife, Queen Zola Mafu, after she turned 18 on July 26, 2014.

While Her Majesty Queen Mantfombi acted as the de facto Regent of Zulu nation, further decisions on the succession of the Zulu Monarchy were pending until the family's mourning period for the king had ended.

Traditional Prime Minister to the Zulu monarch Mangosuthu Buthelezi, 92, denied rumors that she was poisoned.

"This has taken us by surprise and left us utterly bereft," he said.

Queen Mantfombi was admitted to a hospital last week, exactly a month after she was elected regent, following her husband's death.

The Queen was the third senior Zulu royal to be buried in recent months following the death of Zwelithini's eldest son in November, and the king's death in March.

Prince Philip, the husband of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, has passed away at age 99.

The news was announced by Buckingham Palace on Twitter on Friday, April 9.

"It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," the tweet read. "His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle."

Many in England are wondering if Harry Windsor and Meghan Markle will attend the prince's funeral.

Harry was "advised to fly home right now to day goodbye to his grandfather," a source told The Royal Observer.

Meghan will likely remain in California until their baby is born.

The couple bad-mouthed the Royal family in a recent tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

WENN

The news comes after Prince Philip spent 28 nights in a hospital, after being treated for a serious infection and undergoing heart surgery in March.

The Duke retired from royal duties in 2017. In January, Philip was involved in a car crash after he pulled out onto the main road near the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England.

The royal was uninjured in the crash but two people in the other car were hospitalized.

Born in Greece, Prince Philip joined the navy in 1939 and fought in World War II. During the war, he corresponded with the then-teenage Princess Elizabeth, and they announced their engagement in 1947.

After the couple's wedding in November of that year, he was named Duke of Edinburgh and left the military after his wife's accession to the throne in 1952. He officially became a British Prince in 1957.

Prince Philip is survived by Queen Elizabeth II, and their children Charles, Prince of Wales, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne, and Prince Edward, as well as eight grandchildren, including Harry and Prince William.

Just 27 percent of Brits surveyed by The Sun said they would watch Oprah's sit-down with Harry and Meghan.

Queen Elizabeth II (left) responded by stripping them of their remaining royal duties and redistributing the duties among family members who know their roles as humble servants to their British subjects.

Buckingham Palace released a statement Friday on behalf of The Queen, who said, "in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service."

The Queen previously ordered Meghan's name removed from her grandchild, Archie's birth certificate, as all grandchild heirs to the throne are in the sole custody of the Queen -- including Harry and Meghan's unborn child.

Harry's brother Prince William -- second to the throne -- is said to be "sad and shocked" by his brother's rude behavior to their grandmother, Her Royal Highness the Queen.

According to The Times, sources close to Prince William (far left) claim he is "very upset" by Harry and Meghan's "insulting and disrespectful" reply to Queen Elizabeth II.

In a subtle jab, Harry and Meghan responded to the Queen: "We can all live a life of service. Service is universal."

While service may be universal, no one talks back to the Queen.

"You don't answer the Queen back," said a royal source, "it's just not done."

Another source close to the family called the reply "petulant and insulting to the Queen," adding, "Don't disrespect your granny, Harry."

Henry Mountbatten-Windsor, Duke of Sussex, and his American wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, have officially quit the royal family, leaving behind a life of service to their British subjects.

Meghan had a parting shot for England's Queen Elizabeth II who stripped them of their remaining service roles after they announced their second child will be born American.

The news comes just months after the mom-to-be opened up about her heartbreaking miscarriage in July 2020.

Her Majesty the Queen said she was "saddened by their decision" to abandon their life of public service, and she wished "the Sussexes" a happy new life in America.

Meghan shot back at the Queen with a subtle dig: "We can all live a life of service. Service is universal," she wrote in a statement.

As you know, Harry and Meghan abandoned their royal duties in 2019. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Meghan became engaged to Harry in 2017 and they wed in 2018. Their son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, was born the following year.

Chris Jackson/Getty Images

On January 8, 2020, the couple announced their intentions to step away from public service. They moved to Canada and then to America to pursue celebrity stardom in movies and television -- roles which have eluded them since Americans don't much care for royals.

On Valentine's Day, Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, announced they are expecting their second baby born on American soil.

John Rainford/WENN

In a rare statement this week, the Queen confirmed Harry and Meghan's eight military roles and patronages were revoked and redistributed to "working members of the royal family" who know their roles as humble public servants.

After living rent-free in Tyler Perry's West Coast mansion, the former royals purchased their own home in California.

The final insult to the Royal family will come when Harry applies for American citizenship.
