The Queen has a “soft spot” for grandson Prince Harry because of the struggles he’s faced, a royal author has claimed.
According to Andrew Morton, Her Majesty, 96, cares for Harry because of his struggles to cope with the tragic death of his mother Princess Diana.
The Queen and Prince Harry
Mr Morton said: “The Queen’s got a soft spot for Harry.
“Courtiers will have an appointment with the Queen and it’ll be three weeks hence but he can turn up at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle, walk in, say hi and get the Queen to be involved in the Invictus Games.”
He continued: “The Queen has got a soft spot for Harry because obviously the tragic nature of his mother’s death, his struggles to cope with that, his mental struggles, the fact that he’s cursed with charisma in a way.
“When I see him on royal engagements it’s very much like watching Diana kneeling down hugging kids it’s remarkable.”
Harry will soon be reuniting with the Queen again when he and wife Meghan Markle visit the UK for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The couple recently confirmed they’ll be attending the celebrations with their two children, Archie, three, and Lilibet, 11 months.

The service will take place at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday June 3.
According to the Telegraph, the monarch’s children, grandchildren and older great-grandchildren will be attending.
The guest list reportedly includes Meghan, Harry and Prince Andrew too.
