The world has been up in arms over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's historic announcement last month. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to opt-out of royal life, choosing instead to become financially independent. They have moved to Canada and will no longer be considered working royals.

As shocking as this news was to the world, sources say the remaining members of the royal family have been just as thrown by this. Reports now claim Queen Elizabeth II is disappointed with her grandson's reaction to recent developments.

While rumors often circulated of feuds and tension between the Cambridges and the Sussexes during Harry's time as a royal, sources have painted quite a different picture since Harry and Meghan walked away from the palace.

Reports say Prince William's wife, Kate Middleton, has been missing her brother-in-law very much since he left for Canada. Sources said she worried she would not get to see him again. Harry and Kate were reportedly great friends and had grown close over the years.

Missing Meghan

Duchess Meghan isn't without her supporters, either. The Duchess of Sussex reportedly grew very close to Harry's father, Prince Charles, during the years she spent in the royal family. Sources said Charles felt hurt by the move, as he admired Meghan's work ethic and was reportedly one of the first to welcome her into the fold.

Charles' partner, Camilla Parker Bowles, is said to have supported Duchess Meghan's decision to leave the palace. Sources said Camilla was aware of Meghan's struggle with the press.

Disappointed

After leaving the palace, Harry and Meghan originally intended to create a new brand for themselves, dubbing it Sussex Royal. Trademarks were put in place about a month before their announcement. The Queen reportedly decided not to allow the Sussexes to use the word "royal" in any capacity after their exit is official.

A source is now saying that Queen Elizabeth II is not happy with Prince Harry's response to the "royal" debate. He and Meghan released a statement implying the Queen did not have the authority to police the use of the word. Sources say the Queen hopes her grandson will eventually see things "more clearly" and that she feels he chose the worst possible time to leave.

Back To The UK

Despite all this alleged drama, the Sussexes are expected to be back in the United Kingdom next month to join the Commonwealth Day celebrations. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are expected to bring their infant son, Archie Harrison, along with them.

Prince Harry is currently back in the UK ahead of his family's return. He has been putting in appearances for the royal family and will be teaming up with Jon Bon Jovi to record a single for charity while he is there.
