Queen Elizabeth has to be protected from his grandson Prince Harry and not from other royals around her like Prince Charles and Prince William. According to a royal biographer, the Duke of Sussex is trying to get back into the royal folds.
Queen Elizabeth 'Needs Protecting' From Prince Harry
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been consistent when it comes to their great relationship with Queen Elizabeth II. According to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's grandmother has been wonderful to her.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry has nothing but kind words to say about the monarch. He even spoke about their special relationship in a recent interview claiming that there are things that the British monarch could only share with him and not with the rest of the family.
In the same interview, Prince Harry mentioned that he wanted the Queen to be "protected" and ensure that she is surrounded by the "right people" which raised several eyebrows. Royal biographer Tina Brown clapped back at the Duke of Sussex saying, Her Majesty needed protection from him.
"Well, actually she needs protecting from you, Harry," the Vanity Fair editor and royal author said on BBC Radio 4's Today program Tuesday, Mirror reported.
Brow speculated that Prince Harry was making an attempt to "somehow reel them back" into the royal folds. However, she didn't believe it would happen "right now" because Prince William's younger brother "keeps lobbing these fresh hand grenades at the family" just when it seems that they could sort out things and mend their relationship.
The Palace Papers: Inside The House of Windsor - the Truth and the Turmoil author believed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to return to the palace and serve the monarchy. However, that is unlikely while the Queen reigns.
"I think my guess is that they will want to come back actually," Brown added. "I don't think the entertainment efforts are going that brilliantly, you know, sitting in Montecito."
Prince Harry's Remark About Protecting Queen Elizabeth Criticized
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited the Queen by dropping in the U.K. before they headed to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games last month. While in The Hague, Prince Harry mentioned protecting the Queen during his interview with Hoda Kotb.
Several royal experts clapped back at Prince Harry for saying those words when he was fully aware that his father Prince Charles and older brother Prince William are with Queen Elizabeth in the U.K.
"The protection most needed by the Queen is from exploitation such as this by Prince Harry," Daily Mail columnist Richard Eden tweeted.
"That man clearly used his grandmother for his own PR, as we all predicted! It's so wrong," another user claimed.
"Harry's comment on US TV about him checking the Queen is protected is a gross insult to Prince Charles and William. He's underlined even more that he doesn't deserve to attend the Jubilee celebrations and be on the Balcony," Prince Harry's royal biographer Angela Levin wrote on Twitter.
