In a new documentary, Harry, 36, has opened up again about the pain he endured following the death of his mother Princess Diana.
The bombshell The Me You Can't See,has seen Harry unload his "truth bombs" to Oprah on Apple TV.
Harry accused his family of showing "total neglect" to his mental health woes and claimed that Prince Charles made him "suffer".
Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal commentator, has said Harry and Meghan's explosive allegations will hurt the Royal Family.
Mr Fitzwilliams told The Daily Star: “The Sussexes’ activities, when they’ve spoken out, have been very, very damaging.
"There’s no doubt about it.”
He added: “The Queen will have found the way the Sussexes have handled things, I think, deplorable.”
Harry and Meghan have not directly criticised The Queen, with reports suggesting Prince Charles would "close ranks" with his mother if they did.
The Queen is reportedly “deeply upset” by Harry’s “very personal” criticisms of the Royal Famil, but Charles is keen for a reconciliation.
Harry has claimed the Firm told him to "play the game" when he revealed his struggles with royal life.
Asked how the Queen would take her grandson's claims, Mr Fitzwilliams added: “She has realised how unhappy they were, but speaking out in the way they have is a totally different thing.”
It comes amid claims Harry and Meghan, 39, want to be at next year's Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in what would create a “fresh headache” for the Royal Family.
The couple have officially stepped down as working royals, but have indicated they want to return for family occasions.
Organisers could face a headache as they try to work out what to do with the couple during the party.
An insider said: “Harry wants to be there. It is already causing a headache and is going to be very awkward.
The Queen will have found the way the Sussexes have handled things, I think, deplorable.
“Where will they be positioned if they turn up? What events can they attend?
“Will we put them on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the flypast?
“This is a celebration for the Queen’s 70 years of service to the nation and should not be overshadowed.
“There are now so many questions about what to do with Harry and Meghan.”
Harry had been due to return to the UK next to honour his mother at a statue unveiling on July 1
But his plans are in doubt as Meghan is due to give birth in the next couple of weeks, a royal expert said.
The Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers told stand-in host Cat Deeley that Harry may miss the event.
He said: “The things I'm being told is they still really want to be there, both of them. Certainly, William and Kate will be there.
“But whether Harry can fly over there because the baby is imminently due this summer… it will certainly be in the next couple of weeks.”
