The Sun reports that several of the Queen's guests have been keen to chat about the royal couple in recent months.

But now aids have asked future guests, the report said, to stay clear of the subject.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, has attracted negative comments, most notably about the use of private jets to travel to engagements around the world.

Social media erupted with the news that the couple reportedly travelled to Ibiza on their first holiday as a family of three via private jet.

The backlash comes after Prince Harry opened up about saving the planet by only having two children with Meghan.

Only weeks before, the Duke divided opinion with his comments on climate change.

Speaking in the September issue of Vogue – which was guest-edited by his wife – Harry spoke about expanding the Sussex brood and admitted that the couple would have "two maximum" in a bid to save the planet.
