Prince Harry has felt 'helpless' as Royal Family rally around the Queen at Windsor


Members of the Royal Family have shown their support for the Queen by reportedly “taking turns” to visit her at Windsor Castle and keeping her company on the phone, as she recovers from her illness. According to a royal insider, Prince William and Kate have sent a bouquet of flowers and sweet cards from their children, whilst Prince Harry has been left feeling “helpless” in Montecito. 

A source close to the royals told celebrity outlet Us Weekly: “The royals went into a state of panic when they heard the Queen was admitted to hospital and are taking turns to call her daily and visit her at Windsor Castle.”

They added that Prince William and Kate had sent a huge bouquet of flowers whilst her great-grandchildren had sent well-wishes and cards.

Speaking of Prince Harry, the source said the prince had gone into “panic mode” after hearing about his grandmother. 

“He felt helpless being 5000 miles away in Montecito and has been checking in non-stop with her.”

Despite his ongoing differences with the Royal Family, Prince Harry has always praised the Queen and recently described her as his “Colonel-in-Chief”.

During his and Meghan Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, he said: “I have spoken more with my grandmother in the last year than I have done in many, many years.

“My grandmother and I have a really good relationship and a good understanding.” 

Since moving to California following Megxit in 2020, the Duke has only seen Her Majesty on two occasions, after he returned for Prince Philip’s funeral and the unveiling of Diana’s statue. 

Despite participating in two virtual audiences yesterday, a statement from Buckingham Palace was released last night to state that Her Majesty would no longer be attending the COP26 summit.

It read: “Her Majesty has regretfully decided that she will no longer travel to Glasgow to attend the evening reception of COP26 on Monday, 1 November.”

The statement concluded: “Her Majesty is disappointed not to attend the reception but will deliver an address to the assembled delegates via a recorded video message.”

It has been made clear that her illness is not Covid-19 related and she is now resting at Windsor Castle whilst undertaking light duties from her desk.
