THE Queen told Prince Harry she was delighted that he and Meghan had “found happiness”, according to a report.
A source told the Daily Mirror that the pair had a "harmonious conversation" after the Duke quit royal life for good last week.
Harry and Meghan were dramatically stripped of their royal roles to complete their Megxit – but the Duke yesterday insisted he had "not walked away" from the Royal family.
A source close to Harry told the Mirror: “Harry has spoken to the Queen, and she told him she was delighted he has found happiness.
“She only wants the best for him and his family.
“She has seen him struggle with his position in the family and had always had a great deal of affection and sympathy for him.”
They added that Harry had “no regrets” about his decision to step back from his role in the Royal family.
The source went on: “He described it as being free, but he knows he has a duty to the family and he reiterated his promise to never do anything to embarrass them.
“This is all about moving on, it was a very harmonious conversation between a caring grandmother and her grandson.”
Buckingham Palace declined to comment to the Mirror.
Yesterday, the Duke opened up to James Corden about quitting royal life on the Late Late Show.
Prince Harry insisted that he and Meghan Markle "never walked away" from the Royal Family as he joined the TV star for a double-decker bus tour of Los Angeles.
During a visit to the house that featured on 1990s sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, Harry rapped the famous Prince of Bel-Air theme song, which was originally performed by Will Smith.
My life is public service
Asked by Corden how he sees his life after lockdown, Harry, 36, said: "My life is always going to be about public service and Meghan signed up to that."
On the decision to walk away from the royal family, he said it "was never walking away, it was stepping back rather than stepping down".
Harry said he needed to move his family away but insisted: "I will never walk away, I will always be contributing.
"My life is public service."
As part of Megxit, the pair will lose their patronages, with Harry being stripped of his honorary military titles as part of the agreement.
The Sussexes’ decision to quit royal life indefinitely came a month before the March 31 deadline for a review of their new post-Megxit life.
Meghan was not involved in the talks with the Queen who spoke only to Harry directly via video call.
Harry also held “amicable” talks with other senior royals, including brother William and dad Charles, as early as January.
UK broadcasters are also in a bidding war over Meghan and Harry's upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey.
It is claimed that the pair will "shine a light" on the tensions with the Royal Family during the sitdown interview.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly expected to be "very candid" in the 90-minute chat after last week announcing they had officially quit the Royal Family.
A source close to the duke and duchess told E!: "There is a lot of tension between them and the Royal Family.
"The interview is going to shine a light on what they have been through. Meghan and Harry are relieved they are away from it all."
