Queen to reject Harry and Meghan's royal adviser offer

It was during the couple's interview with Oprah Winfrey that they spoke of the difficulties they had faced during their time as part of the royal family.

These included claims of racism by Meghan which Prince Harry confirmed.

Despite the couple's offer to work with the monarchy to help them move forward in a more inclusive way, Her Majesty and palace staff are thought to have opted to deal with matters themselves, announcing they will be hiring a diversity coach.

Earlier this month, Meghan told TV interviewer Oprah Winfrey that living in the royal family had pushed her to the brink of suicide.

The Duchess of Sussex had described the remarks as a low point.

"He did not share the identity with me but he wanted to make sure I knew, and if I had an opportunity to share it, that it was not his grandmother or grandfather that were part of those conversations," Winfrey said.

In a rare one-on-one interview in which he discussed the pressures of royal life and his move away from London, Harry told "The Late Late Show" host James Corden that he decided he needed to "get (his) family out of here" and that he preferred the depiction of royal life seen on Netflix show "The Crown" to the one published in newspapers.

"We all know what the British press can be like, and it was destroying my mental health," he said during the segment. "I was like, this is toxic. So I did what any husband and what any father would do."
