While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship with Princes Charles and William has been reportedly icy, by all accounts, the couple seem to be on good terms with the Queen. 

Not only have they revealed they video chat with Her Majesty quite often, they also named their first daughter Lilibet after the 95-year-old’s sweet nickname. 

But now, word around the palace is that the original Lilibet isn’t too happy with the Sussexes at the moment.

According to royal author Robert Lacey, a month after their first son Archie was born, Harry and Meghan reportedly tried to trademark a bunch of items (including bookmarks, bandanas, pyjamas and hoodies) under the name ‘Sussex Royal’, without consulting the Queen first.

The Sun reports that the author claimed Her Majesty was “hopping mad” that they failed to include the monarch in their decision.

“When the Queen, Charles and William got a glimpse of this selection of a hundred or more products, registered for all to see on 21 June with the UK Intellectual Property Office at 10 Victoria Street, just round the corner from Buckingham Palace, the extent of royal fury at Sussex impertinence rose to even higher levels,” Robert Lacey wrote in his novel Battle of Brothers.

“Once again Harry had totally failed to consult the Queen about a major initiative affecting his royal work and image – and the image of the crown as a whole.”

With tensions seemingly at an all-time high between the monarchy and the rogue Sussexes, royal observers are waiting with bated breath to see if Prince Harry’s upcoming jaunt to the UK repairs familial relations.

The Duke is heading back to his homeland for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue in honour of what would have been her 60th birthday.

According to reports, Harry will be making the trip solo, with Meghan opting to stay in California.

“Meghan is not going to travel,” an insider told the Daily Mirror . “She has just had a baby and Harry will travel alone.”

Even Kate Middleton is reportedly sitting this one out.

Will this finally be the brotherly reconciliation we’ve been waiting for?
