Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth II have a unique relationship despite the Sussexes’ alleged misunderstanding with other royal family members, especially with Prince William, proving the greatness of the greatness of a grandmother’s love.
In fact, a royal correspondent revealed that Her Majesty often visited his grandchild and Meghan Markle while living in the U.K. after their marriage.
Richard Palmer told “Royal Round Up” host Pandora Forsyth that Queen Elizabeth was worried about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they got married due to the “media storm and increasingly hostile relations with the British public.”
Palmer revealed, via Express, that the Queen “quite regularly” visited the Sussexes to make sure they were fine. He explained that the monarch would usually pop up to see the two regularly when they were still living at Windsor.
Amid the media frenzy, the leader of the other 14 Commonwealth realms was worried that they might be unhappy and unsettled. So, at one point, he claimed that he was told Queen Elizabeth would see them to ensure their comfort.
However, Forsyth chimed in and said the loving grandmother could no longer go around for a cup of tea now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had left the U.K.
Despite that, though, the Duke of Sussex reportedly remains to have a close relationship with Queen Elizabeth. People reported that he has made sure his bond with his grandma will remain intact in spite of the turmoil of stepping down as senior royals and the rift they have with other royals.
In fact, Prince Harry will usually update Queen Elizabeth about his life and kids, Archie and Lilibet, through video calls. “We have a really special relationship. We talk about things she can’t talk about with anyone else,” he said, via Elle.
He even visited her at Windsor whenever he had a chance, like when he was en route to the Invictus Games in The Netherlands in April. He also officially introduced his one-year-old daughter, who he named Lilibet to honor Queen Elizabeth, to her when the family went to the U.K. to join the celebrations of her Platinum Jubilee in June.
Though Prince Harry wasn’t sure if he could go to the U.K. for the Jubilee events at the time due to security issues, he said he was trying to make it possible to have her kids meet Queen Elizabeth II. Alternatively, as a monarch, Queen Elizabeth has to balance her sympathy for the couple and her firmness as a leader.
