Prince Harrys claims he was protecting Queen was bizarre – expert

Prince Harry claimed he was attending the Queen's Platinum Jubilee to protect the Queen – but a royal expert believes that was a "bizarre" claim to make.

Speaking to Australian TV about the relationship between the Royal Family and the Sussexes, the Mirror's royal correspondent Russell Myers claimed that the Duke of Sussex spoke with "bizarre language" about his recent return to the UK as the situation has remained "very very frosty" since the couple's bombshell interview with US TV host Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle complained about their treatment by certain family members during the interview – claiming one royal, unnamed, speculated about the colour of Archie's skin before he was born.

Weeks before their recent return to the UK – where they were joined by one-year-old daughter Lilibet, who met the Queen for the first time – Harry gave an interview to NBC Today, Mirror reports.

Referring to the Duke of Sussex's interview, Russell Myers said: "Harry was giving an interview just a couple of weeks ago when he was at the Invictus Games.

"It was all, sort of, bizarre language, he was there to protect the Queen and these things are not going down too well.

"If it [their relationship] is to be repaired, then there needs to be a bit more water under the bridge".

However, Mirrorman Myers agreed with Australian TV Host Richard Wilkins on the Today Show who claimed they may be trying to "have their cake and eat it too".

Myers added: "If Harry's looking for some, sort of, piecemeal then he was a long way off that.

"The people I speak to, the Palace every day, who [are] obviously very very well connected with the top players, as it were. They are still absolutely furious".

Myers added: "You can't go on, you know, international television interview with Oprah Winfrey, complaining about your treatment with the family and then wanting to sit down with them when you're still giving interviews".

Representatives for Meghan and Harry have been contacted by the Daily Star for comment.
