Prince Harry is in ‘panic mode’ over Queen Elizabeth’s health crisis?

Us Weekly had two very strange articles about Queen Elizabeth’s health and hospitalization, and how her family has reacted to all of that. The British papers have said that the Queen’s favorites and geographically closest have rallied around her, and I assume that means Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex. I assume all three have made several in-person visits to the Queen over the past week. But what of the Queen’s grandchildren and grandchildren-in-law? Well, according to Us Weekly, Harry has been completely panicked over the state of QEII.

Grandson duties activated! Prince Harry went into “panic mode” after learning that Queen Elizabeth II had been rushed to the hospital earlier this month, a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“He felt helpless being 5,000 miles away in Montecito, [California,] and has been checking-in non-stop with her,” the insider says. The 37-year-old prince, who relocated to the U.S. with wife Meghan Markle in March 2020, still “feels guilty about not saying goodbye” in person to his grandfather Prince Philip before his death in April, the source explains.

“[He] would never forgive himself if the same thing happened with his beloved grandmother,” the insider tells Us, noting that Harry is “hoping to go back home for Christmas with Meghan, if not before so that she can finally get to meet [her great granddaughter] Lilibet and see [great grandson] Archie again.”

“The queen is finally acknowledging that she won’t be around forever and needs to slowdown,” the source tells Us, noting her recent hospitalization was a wake-up call to start passing some responsibilities down the line. “She’s not a quitter and will continue working but is handing over of some of her duties to Prince Charles and Prince William and is preparing them to take over.”

From what Harry and Meghan said in the Oprah interview, they’ve been in constant contact with the Queen anyway. Harry made it sound like he was Zooming with Philip regularly before Philip made a turn for the worse this spring. While Harry might feel some guilt – that would be natural – I doubt he’s in panic-mode or whatever. I’ve been saying for months that I do think Harry would like to visit the UK sooner rather than later, and I think that’s mostly about seeing the Queen in person and checking on her. He’s very fond of her. Meanwhile, did you know that QEII and the Duchess of Cambridge are basically BFFs?

On the mend! Royal family members have been lending a supportive hand after Queen Elizabeth II‘s brief overnight stay in a local hospital earlier this month. The monarch, 95, returned home on Thursday, October 21, after being monitored “for some preliminary investigations” on medical advice, Buckingham Palace noted in a statement last week. Since she was given the all-clear, she’s been tended to by great-grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

“[Duchess] Kate sent the queen a huge bouquet of flowers from her family,” a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. “George, Charlotte and Louis made ‘get well soon’ cards.”

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, and Elizabeth “have been talking more than ever since [the] health scare,” the insider says, adding that Kate “has a special bond with the queen” and often connects with her over “one-on-one phone conversations.”

[From Us Weekly]

Raise your hand if you believe any part of this? Again, the Cambridges have been on vacation since last Thursday. Kate possibly sent flowers, but Kate has not been checking in on the Queen or calling, let’s be real. It’s so funny to me to see this flurry of embiggening PR around the Cambridges this week given that they are literally on vacation!!! After a two-month summer holiday! After only being “back at work” for about six weeks!!!!

    Lol, we all know how the worker-bee queen feels about Waity Do-Little.

  2. MsIam says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they did go see the queen now that travel restrictions are lifted. But this is a situation of her own making, she’s the one who said no half-in. Or she let herself be bullied by Charles and William into agreeing to this arrangement. Anyway, Us Weekly is full of crap so we shall see if the Sussexes go to the UK.

  3. ThatsNotOkay says:

    No, not flowers. Appearances. SHOW UP! SHE’S 95!

    And I do think Harry is probably concerned and ready to head over sooner rather than later. That’s one of the few, logical pulled-from-their-axxes pieces of speculative gossip I can get on board with.

  4. I’ve never seen ‘panic mode’ look so unbothered. I’m sure he loves her and is worried about her, but the only people panicking are Willy and Waity. They’ll actually have to work now.

  5. Becks1 says:

    More like, Kate told her assistant to send flowers and told the nanny to make cards from the kids before they left for Mustique.

    did anyone really say goodbye to Phillip in person? I know they said the Queen was by his side, and Charles and Anne both visited him in the hospital, but I didn’t get the impression there was a big bedside vigil or the whole family coming and going. We certainly never heard whether William said goodbye in person. I mean I’m sure Harry WAS sad that he didn’t say goodbye in person, I’m just not sure that was something true for only Harry if that makes sense.

    At any rate – yes, Harry has been very clear about how he feels about his grandmother and because we know he’s not a coldhearted ass, if she really is that sick, then I’m sure he wants to be by her side. I actually think that will be the big “tell” in terms of how sick she is – if Harry goes to the UK, then I feel like we’ll know she’s close to passing.

  6. Kelly says:

    I am embarrassed for Keen and her constant need to stay relevant. Her own embiggening campaign at the funeral for Philip was a joke and her face and behavior at the commonwealth shows that she’s just a basic bitch. Her and Carole’s attempt at this BS is equally embarrassing and I think they need to shut up and sit down. She is obviously sitting in some hotel room while the kids are in the pool with the nanny calling her mother and telling her to get on the phone with US Weekly and get her to be the future queen of American Media is sad. Enough Kate. It’s pathetic. This is what life looks like when you sell your soul to be apart of a damning institution.

  7. Jais says:

    This just feels made up. I don’t think there’s a real source for either story, the source is a RR and this is what they imagine. That said, if the queen is getting worse, why wouldn’t Harry want to visit her?

  8. Miranda says:

    If not for the fact that, you know, they’re on vacation, I could actually buy Kate rushing to TQ’s side and making a big show of doting on her…but in the most irritating and intrusive and unwelcome way possible. She’s not a subtle creature. Can’t you just see the Queen frantically trying to blink “GET THIS VULTURE AWAY FROM ME” in Morse code during a Zoom call with Harry?

    • JT says:

      I think Kate knows that she couldn’t just rush to the queen’s side even if she wanted to. Does the queen actually even like Kate? I haven’t seen anything that says she does other than Middleton PR and it’s not like Kate is going to step and work more on behalf of the queen.

      • Miranda says:

        True. I mean, in my scenario, she would’ve been doing it just for show, but that’s still too much effort for her, isn’t it? Hell, she clearly doesn’t even put THAT much effort into making up the bullshit they try to feed the press.

  9. Kfg says:

    This all seems to be bs. She’s 95. Harry won’t be going to the UK with his family anymore this year. This is the RR hoping he does bc they don’t have any profitable stories. House Windsor is going down.

  10. Eurydice says:

    I’m not sure where these “sources” are coming from. Maybe H&M should investigate the chicken coop – there could be a foul fowl in there.

  11. Edith says:

    The british royal family is in “Panic mode “because if the Queen dies, their years are counted. People respect the Queen especially because of her age. more in “panic mode “should be Andrew, for obvious reason.

    • Gabby says:

      And the British tabloids are in panic mode, because the RF’s last good link to the Sussexes is about to break

  12. Abby says:

    I doubt there are any “sources” that have info on Harry. This is conjecture.

    Yeah probably he is worried about her. Maybe he is making plans to see her sooner than later. But he’s not panicking. The British media and BRF are panicking.

  13. Amy Bee says:

    The press tries to ascribe human qualities to the Royal Family that don’t exist. The Royal Family is not a normal family and heirachy and patriarchy are strictly adhered to. That being said, it’s likely that Harry knew that the Queen was struggling before anybody else in family and the Royal Household. I’m sure he has concerns that the Palace is overworking the Queen but I doubt he is in panic mode about it. I still don’t believe that he and his family will return to the UK for Christmas and I can’t wait for the press outrage about that. The story about Kate is not believable when the same day the Queen came out of the hospital, the Cambridges were seen jetting out of the UK.

  14. Kit says:

    My cousin was one of Prince Philips Consultants while he lived in Scotland, one of a few, but de only person he saw visiting Philip was Princess Anne !!!!!

  15. Dee says:

    I’m just here for that monstrosity of a pseudo-military outfit on Kate. She looks like a super villain with a spider webby hat.

    • Nic919 says:

      Sad part is that kate would have had time to serve in the military while waiting for a proposal. She just prefers to play dress up Barbie solider instead.

  16. LP says:

    I actually think this “insider” is a royal reporter who is trying to frame this a certain way. They’ve done this before and when you pair it with the Cambridge story I’ll assume it’s probably the same source. Oh look Harry is far away but here is Kate and the kids to the rescue.
    Whatever Harry and Meghan do is their business. None of us know anything and until they actually step foot in the UK whether this year or next…the guessing game will continue.
    But one thing I feel I can accurately guess is that Harry will say something about this in his memoirs lol.

  17. MaryContrary says:

    Talk about fan fiction-not one bit of this seems in character or true. I can’t believe people actually get paid to write this drivel.

  18. Over it says:

    Are these flowers to say sorry for being on vacation again especially because you are sick and I really really know I should work more, but trust me I am so keen to next year.

  19. Over it says:

    No one in Harry life is talking to us weekly.fanfic

  20. Betsy says:

    Anybody have any idea what Charles can do to actually get work shy Will and his lazy wife to, you know, work? Can he cut their allowance? Dangle giving POW to Harry (or Eugenie or anyone besides William)?

    If we accept that something went tragically wrong in William’s life after Diana died – real, serious addiction, overdose, a suicide attempt, him threatening to walk away – at what point do they realize that he’s not interested and it’s time to move on? I realize that’s not how a monarchy works, but the deal with the monarchy is that they have to put in a certain amount of face time, and William and Kate just don’t.

    • Becks1 says:

      Right now, yes, he can cut their funding. He funds them, professionally and personally, so he can absolutely say “you’re going to be part of Clarence House now and you will not have a separate press office” or “no, Kate can’t buy another bespoke coatdress she has a thousand and no, you can’t go on vacation.” William does have some private money from Diana but i think they’re pretty reliant on Charles, financially.

      He can’t give PoW to Harry, I don’t “think” – I think that’s only for the heir to the throne – but he can delay giving it to William. He can decide to NEVER make William PoW. But once the queen dies, William becomes the Duke of Cornwall and at that point he’s his own man, financially. Well answerable to the duchy, and the duchy financials are published each year, so could be interesting.

  21. LP says:

    Had to add how I know this story is probably from a royal reporter…after the Oprah interview they tried to frame it as Harry and Meghan regret doing the interview only for Harry to go on record and say…I said what I said I don’t regret a thing lol.
    These people are always projecting their feelings on Harry and Meghan but you be honest they do it with all the royals.

  22. L4frimaire says:

    It’s hard when you are far away from elderly relatives. My 80 yo MIL in Europe was just recently in the hospital and her US based kids had to fly back there to help her and my father-in-law. After she got home she had a fall and was back in hospital, so more transatlantic flights to help out. We speak to her every day but yes,the distance is hard but this is the reality of our world. I’m 3000 miles away from my parents so just need to be ready to get on a flight if something goes wrong.

  23. Muisje says:

    He maybe is in panic mode that he is gonna be cut off her will, too.

  24. PoppedBubble says:

    “…because I don’t receive enough flowers from strangers every time I’m in public,” said TQ after receiving Kate’s flowers.

  25. Splinter says:

    Well, probably he is worried, I mean, she does not look great. And I bet that if she would become unable to use her burner phone, the men in grey would not call him.
    I believe the Sussexes still hold out a hope for both Lilibets to meet in person. So maybe he is coming and maybe not. But there are no reliable “sources”, just pure speculation.

  26. Tessa says:

    Apparently the Cambridges were not in panic mode. They flew off to an expensive resort.

  27. Izzy says:

    The old bag is 95, I’m sure he’s thought more recently about her mortality. Also, whether he’s 5,000 miles away or 5 feet away, exactly how would that change any outcome?

  28. Krystina says:

    Anyone else notice that these “Kate is besties with the Queen” stories started coming out more after H&M did the Oprah interview where they said they were still very close to the Queen?

  29. Johns says:

    [“[He] would never forgive himself if the same thing happened with his beloved grandmother,” the insider tells Us. ]
    Read between the lines, he is pissed that his father/brother didn’t inform him the ending days of Prince Philip, and he had to fly over after his passing. Like they knew the Duke probably wouldn’t make it and would expire very soon, and yet still didn’t tell Harry.
    This time, he’s saying this sentence to his father and the baldie one that if they played the same trick again, it’s truly all bridges are burnt.
