Whatever you do, don’t mention the Sussexes to the Queen!
According to a new report, over the past few months guests of the monarch have been given strict instructions not to utter Prince Harry or his wife, Meghan Markle’s names for fear of upsetting the Queen.
The 93-year-old’s staff have apparently been giving visitors strict instructions that under no circumstances are they to engage in conversation about the Queen’s grandson or his wife, after the British monarch expressed displeasure over the Sussexes conduct during the last few months.

“Courtiers were aware the Sussexes are all anyone wants to ask her about,” a source told The Sun, referring to an array of public speculation, including the couple’s private jet controversy and their son, Archie
“So to nip it in the bud some have taken to having a quiet word with some guests awaiting an audience with the Queen.
“They suggested that questions around Harry and Meghan may not be the best choice as a topic of polite conversation.
“Naturally it’s informal rather than any official policy and there’s no suggestion the Queen is even aware.”
Furthermore, according to The Express, respected journalist, Quentin Letts appeared to back up the reports with a recent tweet: Friend of an acquaintance was about to go riding with HMQ. Was given v firm advice. ‘Talk about anything except one subject.’ Brexit? ‘No. The Sussexes.’”
Buckingham Palace said it does not comment on private or public audiences with Her Majesty.
Meanwhile, this weekend the Duchess of Sussex took to Instagram to send a personal message to Prince Harry on his 35th birthday.
Your service to the causes you care so deeply for inspires me every day,” she wrote.
“You are the best husband and most amazing dad to our son. We love you. Happiest birthday!”
