The Duchess’ father has continued to cause problems for the Royal Family since Meghan’s engagement to Prince Harry. He has conducted a number of TV interviews opening up about his relationship with his daughter and son-in-law. The American has also admitted to staging paparazzi photos to make money in the lead up to May’s Royal Wedding.
The drama has caused so many problems for the Royal household it has been claimed the Queen wanted to intervene.
A source told Vanity Fair: “The Queen was very concerned that it was spiralling out of control, which it was.
“Buckingham Palace wanted to be able to do something and be proactive and make the situation go away.“It was a direction from the Queen, so her courtiers were under strict instructions to sort it out.”

However, according to the US publication, Meghan Markle demanded the fall out with her father be sorted privately.
The Duchess did not want to respond to her father and instead sought to freeze him out.
The source said: “Kensington Palace was not singing from the same hymn sheet, and that was because the message was coming from Meghan.
“She didn’t want to engage and thought that she could handle it on her own.”
