Royal author Nigel Cawthorne said the Queen and Prince Philip, who died earlier this month, have been “rock solid” over the years. But he added that the younger royals “simply aren’t of that calibre”.

Meghan and Harry quit royal duties last year for a new life of personal and financial freedom in America.

It was confirmed in February that Megxit would be permanent.

And they plunged the royals into crisis last month with their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

Meanwhile, the Duke of York was forced to step back in 2019 after his disastrous TV interview about his friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Mr Cawthorne, author of Prince Andrew: Epstein, Maxwell and the Palace, said: “We’ve been so used to the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen who were from that great generation that were formed during the war and they’ve been rock solid ever since.

“The younger generation simply aren’t of that calibre.

“So one gets the impression that the wheels are coming off the Royal Family.”

Andrew appeared on camera earlier this month for what is thought to be the first time since his car-crash Newsnight interview.

He spoke about the Duke of Edinburgh as he attended a church service the Sunday after the royal patriarch’s death.

Meanwhile, Harry returned to Britain for the funeral last weekend for the first time since Megxit.

The trip came just weeks after he and ex-Suits star Meghan plunged the royals into a fresh crisis with their TV interview.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a set of astonishing claims about the Royal Family in the tell-all interview, which aired last month, including accusations of racism.

The royals made clear they did not agree with all of Meghan and Harry’s version of events.

A statement issued by Buckingham Palace after the interview highlighted how “some recollections may vary”.

Harry was reunited with his older brother Prince William, who is second in line to the throne, for the funeral in Windsor.

The once-close siblings have been at the centre of a royal rift.

But they were spotted chatting after the service at St George’s Chapel, raising hopes of a reconciliation.

During his and Meghan’s TV interview, Harry also laid bare his rift with his father Prince Charles.
