Duke of Sussex says he is making sure The Queen is “protected”

In another US television interview, The Duke of Sussex has remarked that he wants to make sure that Her Majesty The Queen is “protected.” Speaking about a recent visit to Windsor Castle made by himself and The Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry said it allowed him to check that The Queen “has the right people around her.”

Speaking to NBC’s Today Show from the Invictus Games in The Hague, Netherlands, Prince Harry described his meeting with Her Majesty in favourable fashion.

“Being with her, it was great. It was so nice to see her. She is on great form. She’s always got such a great sense of humour with me and I’m just making sure she’s protected and got the right people around her.”

Prince Harry is in The Hague in his role as Patron of the Invictus Games which sees over 500 injured military personnel and veterans from 20 nations compete in a week of adaptive sports. Prince Harry is spending the entirety of the games in the Netherlands while The Duchess of Sussex attended the opening day before returning to California.

The full interview with NBC is expected to air in the United States within the coming weeks.

The Duke of Sussex is currently engaged in an ongoing legal battle with the UK Home Office over his police protection while he is visiting the United Kingdom. He is challenging the government’s decision to refuse police security during his visits and has said he “does not feel safe” when in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, Her Majesty The Queen is celebrating her 96th birthday privately on the Sandringham Estate after she flew there by helicopter on Wednesday from her main residence at Windsor Castle.
