Many royal watchers believe Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a feud with other members of the royal family. This rift started a few years ago, but it was reportedly heightened in early 2020 when Queen Elizabeth released a special photo. A royal author wrote in his book that this photo made the Duke and Duchess of Sussex feel the institution was “conspiring” against them.
Does Queen Elizabeth have a good relationship with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?
It is believed that Queen Elizabeth does have a good relationship with Harry and Meghan. Despite the alleged rift between the Sussexes and other members of the royal family, the couple still talks positively about Her Majesty.
During the infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, Harry said, “My grandmother and I have a really good relationship and understanding, and I have deep respect for her.”
Meghan also said that the queen had “always been wonderful” to her. She described their 2018 visit to Cheshire together and noted that Her Majesty made Meghan feel comfortable.

In June 2021, Harry and Meghan welcomed a daughter, whom they named Lilibet after Queen Elizabeth’s childhood nickname.
