Prince Harry accused of ‘astonishing arrogance’ after shocking interview

Prince Harry last night was accused by royal staff of “stunning arrogance”.

They said her delusion knew no bounds in an extraordinary interview in which she claimed she wanted to “protect” the Queen.

Buckingham Palace was left reeling after the prince said in a US TV appearance that his ‘special’ relationship with his grandmother meant he told her things he would hide from others.

Prince Harry may be ready to heal old wounds.  While taking part in the fifth Invictus Games – a sporting event for injured and sick veterans – the Duke of Sussex, 37, sat down with TODAY's Hoda Kotb and opened up about his recent visit with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Harry also takes the further risk of sparking a rift with his estranged brother by stating that their mother, Diana, is now watching him from the grave because she has “done her part” with William and his family.

His remarks prompted an unprecedented intervention from Downing Street, which rejected Harry’s suggestion that the Queen needed extra protection.

Asked if the Prime Minister was confident in the arrangements to ensure the Queen’s well-being, spokesman Boris Johnson replied: “Yes”.

Harry, 37, spoke at Invictus Games’ Today breakfast show in the Netherlands, where he spent a week after flying in from California with his wife Meghan.

The couple stopped on their way to see the Queen at Windsor Castle last Thursday, the first time the Duchess of Sussex has set foot in Britain in more than two years.

Harry had not seen his grandmother, who turned 96 today, since early last summer.

While the palace declined to comment on the meeting, Harry, accompanied by a film crew from Netflix with whom he had signed a production deal, happily chatted with a journalist from US network NBC about their “private” time together. .

The prince appears to be dealing a sharp blow to the royal household staff, including the so-called “man in the gray suit” advising the Queen – and possibly even his own family.

Speaking of his meeting with his grandmother, Harry said: “It was amazing. It’s nice to see it in some elements of privacy. With him it’s been great, it’s great to see him, he’s in good form.

“He always had a great sense of humor with me and I just made sure he was protected and got the right people around him.

“Both Meghan and I had tea with her, so it was a pleasure to meet her. We have a very special relationship, we talk about things he can’t talk to anyone else.”
