The Queen will stop being silent when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle allow "mistruths" about The Firm to circulate in the public domain, it is claimed.

Putting her longstanding "never complain, never explain" policy to one side, Her Majesty has reportedly instructed palace representatives to correct any statements which do not accurately represent her private conversations – or those of any other senior members of the Royal Family.

This move demonstrates the Queen's "exasperation" at the "relentless briefings" that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been providing to the media, reports the Mail on Sunday.

"This is about whether or not what is being reported is an accurate version of what actually happened," said an insider.

The controversy was put aside yesterday by the 95-year-old Monarch, who smiled and tapped her feet to the music during the annual Trooping the Colour parade to celebrate her official birthday.

Her Majesty also hosted a reception at the G7 summit in Cornwall on Friday, June 11, where she entertained world leaders by cutting a cake with a sword.

She joked as a team photograph was taken: "Are you supposed to look as if you're enjoying yourself?"

Today, Sunday June 13, she will welcome US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden to Windsor Castle.

Reportedly, there was further irritation amongst staff at the Palace when sources close to Harry and Meghan suggested to US journalists that they had introduced the Queen to her newborn great-granddaughter, Lilibet via a video call.

The insider last night denied that, stating: "No video call has taken place."

"‘Friends of the Sussexes appear to have given misleading briefings to journalists about what the Queen had said and that took the whole thing over the edge.

"The Palace couldn’t deny the story that this was a mistruth," the insider added.

While the Palace has, for the most part, sought to "mollify" the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, even after their controversial interview with US television host Oprah Winfrey in March, the Queen and other senior Royals have made it clear that there is a limit to their patience.

After the couple claimed there was racism present within The Firm, Prince William told a reporter: "We’re very much not a racist family."

And Buckingham Palace –which is investigating the claims – said in a statement that "recollections may vary".

The Daily Star has approached the palace and Harry and Meghan's reps for comment.

Buckingham Palace have said the matter is "not something they would comment on".
