The Sun: Queen Told Grandson Prince Harry He Will Always Be Welcome Back during Alleged 4-Hour Heart-To-Heart Chat
Amid Prince Harry performing his final rounds of royal duties, the Duke took time out to have a four-hour heart-to-heart with his grandmother, the Queen.
Although they are neck-deep in negotiations about Prince Harry’s life after he and his family step away from royalty, the Duke of Sussex and Queen Elizabeth II had some time to spare.
The Duke had met with the Queen for a meeting that lasted for four hours.
The Queen added that she had hopes that their new agreement would allow Harry and Meghan to build a happy and peaceful life.
During the lengthy chat, the duo had addressed Harry’s future and his plans going forward, and the meeting had ended with what The Sun reported, with open arms from the Queen.
According to the site, the monarch had made sure that she let her grandson know that he was “much loved and will always be welcomed back.”
A source who spilled some beans to the media outlet stated that the meeting was the first that the pair had had since Harry and Meghan announced their intention to step back from royal duties in January.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
Their conversation was aided by the fact that they met in a more relaxed environment, which allowed them to speak their minds openly.
According to Daily Mail, even though the Queen had accepted that her grandson’s decision to start a new life in Canada, she made it clear that their agreement would only work if he and his wife made no moves to exploit their royal status.
The new report came days after People revealed that the monarch understood how sensitive the situation was for Harry and Meghan as she had watched her younger sister, Princess Margaret, go through the same struggles.
In fact, it was her experience with Margret that encouraged the Queen to let Harry be.
Before Megxit, the 93-year-old relationship with her grandson and his wife landed her the “Grandma of the Year” award from Cosmopolitan as the site shared that she reportedly allowed them to choose several art pieces from her private collection.
The doting grandmother had even released a statement soon after the Sussexes made their intentions known, per Town and Country Magazine.
Through the statement, the monarch let the couple know that she was especially “proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family.”
