The Queen is said to have been 'left hurt and exhausted' by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a royal insider has claimed.
Amid the infamous Megxit fallout, Her Majesty, who recently passed away at the age of 96, was said to have told a close friend that she didn't "want to think" about the Sussexes.
It appears that the turmoil from the period which saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle rescind their royal titles and jet off to America caused a great deal of exhaustion for the late Monarch.

The claims come as the Queen was also said to have been upset she did not get to spend much time with Archie and Lilibet.
An insider speaking to Vanity Fair said: "The Queen confided that she was exhausted by the turmoil of their decision. “She was very hurt and told me, 'I don’t know, I don’t care, and I don’t want to think about it anymore,'."
It was also a "source of sadness" that The Queen's invites sent to the Sussexes for the Balmoral Castle sleepover were snubbed by Harry and Meghan.
The invite snub meant that the Sussexes missed out on the Queen's sleepover, which was usually attended by all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Instead, Meghan and Harry, along with their two children, Archie and Lilibet, missed out on the Balmoral event.

Another expert claimed that the Queen had been "deeply hurt" by Harry's decision to leave the Royal Family but "ensured the door was always open" for his return.
Expert Katie Nicholl wrote: "The queen, who was deeply hurt by Harry’s decision to leave his family and the country, nonetheless ensured the door was always open for her grandson and his wife and children to return."
Hurt for the recently-ascended King Charles III was also aired in the exclusive, with Nicholl alleging that the King will "won't stop trying to heal the rift" with Harry.
Nicholl added: "Those close to Charles say he won’t stop trying to heal the rift with his son, as he made sure Harry and Meghan were by the family’s side at the queen’s funeral."
