The Queen of England is planning a ‘legal fightback’ amid ‘hurtful attacks’ by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, according to reports.
Her legal team is allegedly calling on libel and privacy experts after a sense of “enough is enough”.
A source told the Sun : “The feeling, coming right from the top, is that enough is enough.
“There is a limit to how much will be accepted and the Queen and Royal Family can only be pushed so far.

“They are getting lawyered up. Harry and Meghan will be made aware and know repeated attacks will not be tolerated.”
The source claimed the royal legal team are speaking to firms who have expertise in libel and privacy.
They claimed the legal team could also get in touch with publishers of Prince Harry’s upcoming book to request an advance warning of its content as well as a right to reply.

Buckingham Palace would neither confirm the claims nor provide a comment when contacted by the Mirror.
Representatives for Meghan and Harry have also been contacted.
Prince Harry announced a Penguin book deal last month, revealing he will be publishing an “accurate and wholly truthful” memoir next year.
In a statement, he said he was writing it “not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become”.
The news has reportedly caused a “tsunami of fear” in royal circles.
“Since their interview with Oprah Winfrey tensions have been running very high as much of what they said has since been proven to be unreliable at best.
“There is a now tsunami of fear among the royals over what Harry will write. Many hope he may correct a few things but do not hold much hope.”
Meghan and Harry used their interview with Oprah Winfrey to make a series of shocking claims about life at the Palace, and fans have already started speculating what the prince will say in the book.
One of the questions that remain unanswered is which member of the royal family asked questions about Archie’s skin colour .
