The statement released by the palace said the Monarch was saddened by the decision, but the Queen has tried to "protect the royal family and avoid it being tainted" said royal expert Angela Levin.
The royal expert describes the Queen as a "patient woman" but said that her sense of duty came before her grandson, Harry, Mirror reports,
She suggested there'd been "a lot of rumours that the Queen would do this" so she wasn't "in the least surprised."
She said: "The Queen as we know is devoted to her duty and to her country – she loves her children and being a grandmother.
"But in the end her sense of duty is more important than grandchildren or children or great grandchildren.
"She wants to keep them close as a family, but they cannot push their luck too far."
Angela said the palace became concerned over how "increasingly escapist" Harry and Meghan had become.
"[The Queen] doesn't want the royal family's name to be tainted in that way and this, I think, crossed the red line," she said.
Insisting she's "not a micromanager," Angela added "she lets her children and grandchildren do what they want up to a certain extent and when they overstep that, she comes down."
The announcement comes after it was revealed Harry and Meghan will sit down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all interview, which is due to be broadcast in March.
Admitting the Queen will is "very concerned about what the interview with Oprah Winfrey will reveal," Angela said: "When senior members of the Royal family say too much or say things that (the Queen) thinks are wrong the whole family is affected by it.
"There's been a lot of publicity saying that it's going to be a tell-all, no-questions-barred, and I think she's concerned about how that would be, and she's got to protect the royal family."
Angela also added that "Harry adores Meghan" andis "more loyal to his wife" than the royal family as she is "his priority"
