“The heir to the throne, it would seem, is already getting his starched and ironed knickers in a twist.”
Ms Elser described the Queen’s lack of well-wishes on Meghan’s birthday as being “seriously eyebrow-raising”.
However, Daily Express royal correspondent Richard Palmer reported the absence of a birthday message for Meghan Markle is the result of a change in policy.
As royal fans rushed to wish Princess Beatrice a happy birthday, the Firm stayed silent.
Why did the family stay silent on the birthday of the princess, who turned 34?
He said the Royal Family “will only mark the birthdays of non-working members of the family when they end in a zero.”
But Ms Elser said: “The bottom line is that no matter why the Royal Family decided to give Meghan the brush-off, being the first non-working member of the House of Windsor to come in for a regal blanking on their birthday, has some serious sting in the tail.
“If Her Majesty had been concerned that cold-shouldering the LA native might inflame tensions, or wanted to keep the peace with the fractious Sussexes, surely the palace would have waited to roll this new social media approach until after the Duchess’ birthday.”
Reports have speculated that Harry’s book will hit shelves just before the festive season.
When the book was announced, Prince Harry said: “I’m writing this not as the Prince I was born, but as the man I have become.
“I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”
Previously, royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams warned the revelations in the book might be a “problem” for Prince Harry’s relationship with Prince William.
Speaking on ToDiForDaily’s podcast, he said: “Both brothers were inseparable.
“And there’s no doubt that one of the tragedies is that they’ve taken very, very different roads.

“And I see no, no rift being healed, unfortunately, because what you’re looking at now is a memoir that Harry is writing that’s coming out in the autumn now.
“The problem is what is going to be in that book.
“It’s very difficult after Oprah, which is just over a year ago, and I thought it was so destructive, and also open to different interpretations.”
