17 Royally Sweet Photos of Queen Elizabeth II and Her "Dearly Beloved Grandson" Prince Harry
With Queen Elizabeth II's blessing, Prince Harry stepped down as a senior member of the royal family in March. In her statement, the Queen made it clear that Harry, Meghan Markle, and Archie "will always be much loved members of my family."
In the past, Elizabeth has also referred to Harry as her "most dearly beloved grandson," and we can't help but reminisce about all the sweet moments they've shared together. From being front and centre at Trooping the Colour parade to sharing inside jokes at royal engagements, it's clear that Harry and his grandmother have a bond unlike any other and nothing is going to change that.
In fact, when Harry lost his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997, Elizabeth protected him and Prince William from the press by "deliberately removing the newspapers" so they "didn't know what was going on."
When Harry was asked to describe their dynamic in an interview a few years ago, he said he still views her "more as the Queen" than his grandmother. "You have this huge amount of respect for your boss and I always view her as my boss, but occasionally as a grandmother." Take a look at some of their best moments together.
