However, the Duke of Sussex didn't blame his grandmother for not standing up and defending him while his sibling was allegedly screaming at him.

"You have to understand that, from the family's perspective, especially from [the Queen's], there are ways of doing things — and her ultimate sort of mission goal or responsibility is the institution," he explained, Entertainment Tonight reported.

"People around her are telling her, 'By the way, that proposal or these two doing 'XYZ' is going to be seen as an attack on the institution,' then she's going to go on the advice she's given."

Prince Harry Denied The Joint Statement Denying Prince William Bullied Him And Meghan Markle Out Of Royal Family

In one episode of Harry & Meghan, Prince Harry discussed how the palace works in handling controversies. He mentioned the joint statement denying Prince William bullied him and Meghan Markle out of the royal family. According to him, he wasn't aware of it, and no one reached out to him about it.

"Once I got in the car, after the meeting, I was told about a joint statement that had been put out in my name and my brother's name, squashing the story about him bullying us out of the family," he said. "I couldn't believe it. No one had asked me permission to put my name to a statement like that. And I rang [Meghan], and I told her, and she burst into floods of tears. Because within four hours, they were happy to lie to protect my brother, and yet for three years they were never willing to tell the truth to protect us."
