Prince Harry admits he panics about bumping into the Queen

The Queen may be Prince Harry's grandmother, but that doesn't mean that he's entirely relaxed around the monarch - not surprising, given her worldwide fame, influence and the strict rules surrounding her.

In fact, the Duke of Sussex has confessed in a recent documentary that he – much like the rest of the world would – panics if he ever bumps in to his Granny whilst roaming the halls of Buckingham Palace.

In a short preview clip of the documentary, called Queen of the World, we see Harry talking to hospitality workers from the Caribbean, who have all earnt a role in the Royal Household in a scheme created by the monarch.

Whilst shaking hands with them, he said, “You guys have spent way more time in Buckingham Palace than I ever have — and you’ve only been here two weeks,”

The 34-year-old then went on to ask, “Have you bumped into the Queen yet? If you suddenly bump into her in the corridor, don’t panic.” but later confessed, “I know you will. We all do.”

It’s not the first time Harry has recognised the powerful presence of his grandmother. In a 2012 documentary, he praised the monarch, saying, “The way that she carries herself forward, smiles constantly, is able to go into the room and bring it to life – these are things that, at her age, she shouldn’t be doing. Yet she’s carrying on and doing them – not only in this country but all around the world.”

Prince Harry will star alongside many other members of the royal family in the upcoming ITV documentary Queen of the World, which is being released in order to celebrate the Queen’s role as Head of the Commonwealth.

His new wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will also appear, and will be making her first public interview since her marriage to Harry in May.

In the teaser trailer, the Duchess is also seen enjoying an emotional moment, when she is reunited with her wedding dress for the first time since her May 19th nupitals.

She is seen inspecting her veil, which is lined with the flowers of the Commonwealth, before it goes on display at the palace. And, discussing hers and Harry’s plans to visit the Commonwealth, she says, “Oh my goodness. 53 countries. It will keep us busy.”

Queen of the World will air on ITV on Tuesday 25th September at 9.15pm – will you be tuning in?
