Prince Harry & Queen Elizabeth had a ‘four hour heart-to-heart’ in Windsor on Sunday

Prince Harry had an appearance in London on Friday with Jon Bon Jovi. He looked well-rested, happy, trim, and relaxed. The British papers couldn’t stop talking about how he was secretly very sad though. Anyway, I did wonder how Harry was going to spend his weekend away from Meghan and Archie. Meghan didn’t fly to England this weekend, so Harry was riding solo. As it turns out, he likely spent the weekend in Windsor, which is where Frogmore Cottage is located, and where his grandmother was likely in residence at Windsor Castle. Dan Wooten at the Sun – aka the Cambridges’ go-to media guy for strategic leaks – somehow got the tip that Harry had another private meeting with Liz of House Petty. Wooten managed to make this sound like Ol’ Liz was trying to make peace with a wayward child AND like she was reading him the riot act. Enjoy, I guess.

The Queen and Prince Harry had a four-hour heart-to-heart talk at Windsor Castle on Sunday about his future. She told him over lunch that he and Meghan will be welcomed back if they ever decide to rejoin the royals. A source said: “Hopefully it cleared the air.”

The Queen agreed to meet Harry for the extraordinary fireside chat to clear the air about his and Meghan’s imminent royal departure after a request from the Duke. Harry’s 93-year-old grandmother is believed to have ended the talk by saying: “You are much loved and will always be welcomed back.”

Harry, 35, had discretely strolled from his Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor Home Park to the castle, where he and the Queen shared a light lunch and tea as they discussed his future. A royal source said: “The Queen had a lot to talk to Harry about and this was the ideal time for them to both say their piece. When Harry and Meghan announced they wanted to quit it all happened very quickly and it was very stressful for all concerned. Sunday was the first time the Queen has had the chance to talk to Harry on his own and really find out what his plans are. It was a much more relaxed environment and they were both able to speak their mind.”

The chat came amid reports that the Queen is “very sad” that she sees so little of Harry and Meghan’s son Archie. The source added: “It’s fair to say she is very upset about him and Meghan leaving and she would love to see more of Archie, as would Prince Charles and the rest of the family. But she accepts at the moment that his mind is made up and he intends to live in North America. However she also wanted to make it clear that the arrangement can only work if they do not exploit their royal status and try to ‘cash in’ — that’s why she wouldn’t let them use the word ‘royal’ for their foundation. The Queen is protecting the institution and she is also aware of the cost of security. That is something that still needs to be resolved.

“But Harry is also a much-loved grandson who she has always doted on. She made it very clear to him that he and Meghan are always able to come back if they change their minds and she will welcome them with open arms. Hopefully the chat cleared the air and the way forward is looking more positive But she wanted to make certain Harry knew there were limits and the whole set-up is subject to a review after 12 months.”

The Queen wanted him to know that she loves him and she will begrudgingly welcome him back to England if he so desires after she and the rest of the family made moves to exile him and smear his wife for the better part of two years, and oh by the way, she’s still really pissed off at how Harry and Meghan won’t bring their child to her, and she’s still mad and petty about everything else. Got it. I actually don’t doubt that Harry and Liz met and had a good long talk at Windsor Castle. What I doubt is that Wooten’s “source” knows what they discussed. That’s because Wooten’s source was at an Aston Villa game at the time.
