Harry is currently in the Hague for this Invictus Games while his wife Meghan Markle, 40, is at home at their $ 14m mansion in California with their children Archie, two, and Lilibet, 10 months.

The royal was only 12 when his mother died in a car crash in 1997, aged 36. He has since carried on much of her charity work, particularly with landmine clearing charity Halo Trust.

Princess Diana worked with the Halo Trust in Huambo, Angola, during the 1990s in a fight against landmines.

At the time, her support for an international treaty banning the use of explosive devices was seen as a political stance, but it was widely regarded as one of her greatest humanitarian efforts.

The duke made an emotional pilgrimage to Africa in 2019 to retrace the steps of his mother Diana, who famously walked through a partially cleared Angolan minefield in 1997 to highlight the trust’s efforts and the threat of military ammunition.

Harry’s comment come as the Royal Family continues to process his comments made during a US TV interview the day before the Queen celebrated her 96th birthday.

Despite her grandson’s incendiary remarks appearing to question those around her – and him opening up to NBC about their ‘private’ time together –

Her Majesty, who turned 96 today, looked happy and relaxed as she chatted away to her bodyguard as he drove her through the grounds of her beloved Sandringham, which was also treasured by her late husband Prince Philip.

The Royal Family was this week left reeling when Harry, who met with British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace in The Hague today, appeared to issue a veiled warning to those closest to the Queen when interviewed by a US network, saying he wanted to make sure his grandmother was ‘protected’ and had ‘the right people around her’.

The duke did not elaborate on whether he was referring to royal aides or members of his own family, but his comments may have deepened his rift with his father the Prince of Wales and his brother William and perplexed palace officials.

Harry also risked further fueling the rift with his estranged older brother by stating that their late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was now watching over him from beyond the grave as ‘she’s done her bit’ with Prince William and his family.
