The pair is made fun of by staff members by utilizing a moniker, according to an excerpt from his upcoming book “Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait.”
An excerpt, published in The Mail On Sunday reads: “Whenever the names of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex come up in court circles, courtiers flinch and change the subject or refer to them as ‘persons who live overseas’.
“If Harry and Meghan are mentioned to members of the Royal Family, they simply smile briefly and say ‘we wish them all the best’ and nothing else.”
The book also mentions how the Queen was “devoted” to Harry and that “she truly wished him well in his new life abroad”.
The book says: “The truth is that when her grandson told her he was marrying Meghan Markle, she was truly delighted by the prospect.
“She liked Meghan and told lots of people so. And she did everything she could to make her future granddaughter-in-law feel welcome.”
The new book provides insight into the late monarch, including topics like one of her favorite BBC dramas, the perilous method she gave birth to three of her children, and her final talks.
