A palace insider claims the Queen must be feeling "truly alone" as she tries to solve fallout from the Oprah Winfrey interview.
Queen Elizabeth II is said to have been grappling with the staggering claims Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have leveraged against Royal Family while also trying to lead the institution and protect the fragile health of her husband the Duke of Edinburgh, Express.co.uk reported.
The Queen has insisted the issues Meghan and Harry highlighted in their interview with Oprah Winfrey would be handled privately by the Royal Family.
A royal insider told Vanity Fair Italia Her Majesty had hoped not to have to handle a family feud so late into her reign.
The source said: "In this phase of her reign, the last thing she would have wanted is a family feud."
The insider also claimed the Queen has been trying to keep Prince Philip, who recently returned to Windsor after a 28-day stay in hospital, as much out of the debate as possible.
They claimed: "Everything falls on her shoulders. She must feel truly alone."
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex accused the Royal Family of failing to provide them with the necessary help to cope with the mental pressure they faced while still working royals, with Prince Harry suggesting the decision to quit was the result of him wanting to avoid "history repeating itself" in a veiled nod to Princess Diana.
Meghan Markle also claimed a member of the Royal Family had expressed concerns about "how dark" their son Archie Harrison would be at birth.
In a break from the common Royal Family response to the interview, Prince William dismissed the suggestion as he insisted they are "very much not a racist family" when confronted about the alleged comment during a public outing earlier this month.
The Queen launched a review into the claim and Buckingham Palace confirmed the Firm would hire a diversity advisor to improve representation and awareness across the royal institution.

The Duchess of Sussex's friend, TV anchor Gayle King, revealed shortly after the Oprah interview that Prince Harry had been in contact with both Prince William and Prince Charles but conversations had not been fruitful.
Harry was expected to return to the UK in June to attend Trooping the Colour and to celebrate Prince Philip's 100th birthday later the same week.
But with the celebration cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic and Meghan due to deliver their second child in the summer, plans for the Duke's return may have to be postponed.
