The Queen's concerns over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's unhappiness during their time living in Windsor have been revealed. 

The Queen reportedly made an effort to check in on her grandson and his wife when she knew that they were having a hard time with the pressures of royal life. 

According to royal correspondent Richard Palmer, Her Majesty paid regular visits to Frogmore Cottage to ensure the Sussexes were coping .

"I do know that when the Sussexes were living at Windsor, the Queen was popping in to see them quite regularly," Richard told the Express. 

Detailing the monarch's worries for the couple, he added, "She was worried about how unhappy and unsettled they were. So, I was told at one point that she was going around to see them to make sure they were okay."
