Prince Harry’s shocking comments about protecting the Queen were actually meant for Prince Andrew. Harry is annoyed by sex scandal accused uncle being front and centre in Queen’s good books and does not want the 96-year-old to be used for somebody’s private gains.
Prince Andrew shocked many when he ushered the Queen to Prince Philip’s memorial service in March, weeks after settling out of court with rape accuser Virginia Giuffre. A Buckingham Palace source said: “Those images of Prince Andrew escorting the Queen to Westminster Abbey may have upset Harry, which is now believed to be one of the reasons he made such an astonishing remark. “Harry is familiar with the Queen’s aides and there is no animosity at all. The Palace were aware he might do an interview, but no one was expecting those sorts of comments. “He seemed to be implying he had concerns over the Queen’s safety.
“There is a feeling this may be linked to Andrew who has grown quite close to his mother in recent months.” Harry made the ‘protection’ comment during his recent interview with Hoda Kotb. “I’m just making sure that she’s, you know, protected and got the right people around her,” he continued, “You know, home — home for me, now, is you know, for the time being, is in the States.”
