Queen deluged with hundreds of letters of support in wake of Meghan and Harry's Oprah interview

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

Every day, sacks full of post are delivered to Windsor Castle where the Queen has been in lockdown with the Duke of Edinburgh since his release from 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 has been 'pleased' to receive messages of support at what has proved to be a difficult time for the family.

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

Some responses are said to be deeply personal, with Dame Mary thanking correspondents for their 'loyal support', adding that the Queen appreciates the good wishes and 'kindness' shown towards the Royal Family 'at this time'.

A source said: 'We have seen a spike in correspondence after the interview in the same way that it might spike after any other event.'

The Queen has said that the concerns raised by Meghan and Harry in their US TV interview with Oprah Winfrey would be treated 'seriously' but pointedly remarked that 'recollections may vary' when it came to specific allegations.

On Friday, the Queen received public support from Prince Albert of Monaco, who criticised the Sussexes for publicly voicing their dissatisfaction with Royal life. 

He said their decision was 'inappropriate' and that he believed the couple should have expressed their complaints 'within the intimate quarters of the family'.

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