The Queen hoped Prince Harry would “find his feet” in Los Angeles, a new book has revealed.
Prince Philip friend Gyles Brandreth shed light on the late monarch’s relationship with the Duke of Sussex.
A forthcoming biography, titled Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait, explained how the Queen worried about her grandson and his big move across the pond.
Excerpt from the book published in Mail on Sunday says: “I know she really wanted Harry to ‘get his feet wet’ in California and ‘find some really useful things to do.’
“The Queen was devoted to Harry. She loved him, thought he was “fun” and sincerely wished him well in his new life abroad.
“Every time Harry called his grandmother in Montecito, he was always put through to Her Majesty.”
It also claims that this love was extended to Meghan when she came into the family.
It said: “The truth is that when her grandson told her he was going to marry Meghan Markle, she was really excited about the prospect.
“She liked Megan and told a lot of people. And she did everything possible to make her future granddaughter feel welcome.”
It claims that the Queen even offered her to continue working because she was “concerned about her future happiness”.
It said: “When they first met, the Queen told Meghan: ‘You can continue to be an actress if you want to – it is your profession after all.’
This happens after it has been discovered the queen was secretly battling a painful cancer in the last year of her life.
It comes as…
Her late majesty is said to have had the shape of marrow cancersymptoms of which include bone pain, until her death on September 8.
Her death certificate, released in September, officially recorded her cause of death – “old age”.
But Mr. Brandret wrote: “I heard it the queen had a form of myeloma – bone marrow cancer — which would explain her fatigue and weight loss, and those “mobility issues” we were often told about during the last year or so of her life.
