The Queen ‘snubs’ the Sussexes

Meanwhile, it comes after the Queen was accused of ‘snubbing‘ the couple from her Christmas Day speech.

The monarch delivered her annual speech on BBC One on December 25.

However, some royal fans took issue with the Queen failing to mention the work of Harry and Meghan.

Instead, she praised other members of the family including William, Kate, Charles and Camilla.

In her speech, the Queen said: “I see it in my own family and it is a source of great happiness. Prince Philip was always mindful of this sense of passing the baton.

“That’s why he created The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. It remains an astonishing success, grounded in his faith in the future.”
