When did Prince Harry call the Queen?
Before the Queen addressed the nation from the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle in April, Harry called her to wish her luck.
Omid Scobie, royal commentator and author, said, “Harry and his father are very close at the moment, and Harry and the Queen have this unbreakable bond.
“When she made her speech during lockdown, he was the first to pick up the phone and wish her luck.”
He added that depsite his shock decision to step away from royal life and move to the US, Harry and the Queen remain close.
“Those relationships haven’t been permanently rocked by what’s happened.
“But when it became clear that their ‘half in, half out’ working mode wasn’t going to work, it’s almost impossible to turn back from that.”
The Queen’s historic broadcast was watched by millions across the UK in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
She said, “I am speaking to you at what I know is an increasingly challenging time.
“A time of disruption in the life of our country: a disruption that has brought grief to some, financial difficulties to many, and enormous changes to the daily lives of us all.
“Together we are tackling this disease, and I want to reassure you that if we remain united and resolute, then we will overcome it.”
Her Majesty concluded, “We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.”
