Meghan Markle was said to have been “distraught” after online comments called her “miserable” despite reportedly being told not to smile at photographers.
The Duchess of Sussex found herself the centre of attention when she began dating Prince Harry in 2016.
And as photographers desperately attempted to snap the future Duchess, Meghan was said to have been left upset following an incident involving a gift from the Prince.
Meghan was gifted a 14-carat gold chain by Maya Brenne, which featured M and H charms, and was believed to cost $300.
The piece is said to have caused a royal row and resulted in an uncomfortable phone call as she was reportedly advised not to wear the piece.
The Queen has been forced to miss yet another prestigious event in her royal calendar – sparking fresh fears about her health.
Prince Charles has once again stood in for the Queen, his mother, this afternoon as she failed to make an appearance at the Highland Games in Scotland.
This is the first time the 96-year-old monarch has missed the event in her 70 year reign. It comes amid ongoing mobility issues which has seen the Queen using a walking stick and pulling out of important events.
It has been reported that those close to Her Majesty have been forced to be increasingly mindful of her needs and are having to tailor her diary to ensure she is able to fulfil her duties.Princess Anne’s ex-husband Captain Mark Phillips appears to have found new love in the arms of a woman reportedly in her 40s.
The two were snapped together as he supported his daughter Zara Tindall, 41, at a horsing event.
The Queen’s granddaughter, Zara, was cheered by her father, 74, along with the woman he is thought to be “inseparable” from – Belgian equestrian Florence Standaert, rumoured to be almost the same age as Zara.
Zara was taking part in the Land Rover Burghley Horse trials in Lincolnshire when her father’s possible new partner was spotted. A source at the event told the Daily Mail: “She’s his new girlfriend”.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could end up “frozen out” of the Royal Family if they are “actively threatening to reveal further secrets”, a royal source has claimed.
An anonymous source claiming to be a friend of the Prince of Wales said: “Charles adores Harry, and would like nothing better than to get the relationship sorted.
“But a meeting next week is unlikely.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are scheduled to make an appearance back in the UK on Monday.
A spokesperson said they were returning to the UK from their new home in America to support charities “close to their hearts”.
The source added: “Everything was already on hold until they saw what was in Harry’s book, but if Meghan is actively threatening to reveal further secrets, and telling interviewers, ‘I haven’t signed anything, I can say anything I want,’ then it’s not surprising they are being frozen out.”
This comes in the wake of Meghan’s extended interview with New York Magazine’s The Cut, and as anticipation builds over Harry’s memoirs, likely to be released later this year.
Despite staying just half a mile apart from each other, there are “no plans” for estranged Harry and Meghan to meet up with Prince William and Kate when they visit the country next week, according to sources.
They will reportedly be using their home in Windsor, Frogmore Cottage, as a base during the tour – just a 15 minute walk from the Cambridge’s new home in Adelaide Cottage.
However, relations between the two brothers are reportedly so bad that sources told the Daily Mail there are “no plans” for the two to meet during the tour.
Both homes are on the Queen’s estate in Berkshire, and take just a five minute drive to travel between.
In an in-depth interview with US magazine The Cut this week, Meghan, 41, stated she had signed no confidentiality agreements with the Royal Family, indicating there could be more revelations to come about her relationship with them.

The Royal Family has been warned Princess Diana’s legacy should be maintained to ensure a good relationship between the royals and the British public.
The Royal Family has weathered scandals for years, with the public image of some of its members experiencing considerable ups and downs over the past decade.
With public perception pivotal for the maintenance of support for the monarchy, expert Patrick Jephson suggested a move away from the recent PR strategy adopted by royals to return to Princess Diana’s approach would best serve the Royal Family.
The Princess of Wales’s former personal secretary warned royals are now relying too much on “political-style” management of their image instead of being more spontaneous and relatable.
A breakthrough has been made by a historian researching Anne Boleyn as new evidence has given an “inside” look at the former Queen’s female inner circle.
Anne Boleyn was Queen of England for just three years and three months until her execution in 1536. The second wife of King Henry VIII was beheaded by a French swordsman at the Tower of London after being found guilty of treason.
During her life, up to the moment she died, Anne was served by more than 30 different women. These ladies in waiting and maids of honour had greater access to Anne than almost anyone else.
But their identities, personal lives and relationships with the former Queen have long remained a mystery.
However, a Tudor expert has now compiled a list of the women during pioneering new research.
Sylvia Barbara Soberton spoke to Express.co.uk about this new “inside” look at Anne’s inner circle.

It is believed the Duke and Duchess made the move from Kensington Palace to Berkshire, on the grounds of the Queen’s Windsor estate, this weekend.
