The Queen has been inundated with hundreds of letters of support and encouragement in the wake of the interview with Meghan and Harry, The Mail on Sunday has learned.

Every day bags full of mail are delivered to Windsor Castle, where the Queen has been detained with the Duke of Edinburgh since his discharge from the hospital.

The cards, gifts and letters are said to be a source of great comfort to the monarch after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex accused the royal family of racism.

A source said the Queen was ‘happy’ to receive statements of support in what has proved to be a difficult time for the family.

The Queen’s 83-year-old lady-in-waiting, Dame Mary Morrison, answers every letter, with the help of other Palace aides, including other ladies-in-waiting.

Some of the responses would be very personal, with Dame Mary thanking correspondents for their ‘loyal support’, adding that the Queen appreciates the good wishes and ‘kindness’ shown to the royal family at this time.

On Friday, the Queen received public support from Prince Albert of Monaco, who criticized the Sussexes for publicly expressing their displeasure with royal life.

He said their decision was “inappropriate” and that he felt the couple should have raised their complaints “within the family’s intimate quarters.”

A YouGov poll found that Harry and Meghan’s popularity plummeted after their interview, but the Queen’s remained high.
