Prince Harry and Meghan Markle "belittled the Royals" in their statement confirming they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family, it has been claimed.
Their words "lacked any love" according to one expert – despite the Queen keeping door open for them to one day return.
The couple will be stripped of their military titles and Royal patronages, which will be redistributed among working Royal Family members.
Royal author Phil Dampier believes the Sussexes’ statement was disparaging and that the Queen will be hurt by its lack of feeling.
Buckingham Palace said that “all are saddened by their decision” to leave the UK behind and say goodbye to the monarchy.
But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “remain much loved members of the family”, it added.
But a spokesperson for the couple said: “As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world, and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role.
“We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
But speaking to The Sun's Fabulous Magazine, the author author of Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan In Their Own Words, suggested the Queen’s message was "generous" towards the Sussexes.
But Meghan and Harry's brief comment failed to mention the family at all – and it will leave the Queen upset, he claims.
“Harry and Meghan's statement seemed to lack any love or compassion, which is very sad," the writer said.
“While the Queen wants to leave the door open and generously hasn't stripped them of their royal titles, they have given nothing in return. The tone of Harry and Meghan’s press release is quite pointed.

“I think the Queen will be distraught at this turn of events. She is very fond of Harry and she must feel very let down by him.
“She will put up a brave front but in reality she will be devastated and wish Megxit had never happened."
They quit as senior working royals in March 2020 to earn their own money in the US, where they have signed deals with Spotify and Netflix estimated to be worth more than £100million.
They will soon give their first interview to Oprah Winfrey, for which it is understood they will not be paid.
