Prince William and Prince Harry have seen their grandmother Queen Elizabeth all their lives. Now they have come out in the open about the Queen.
To start with, the Royal who seems self reliant is really not very in real life. She depends heavily on Prince Philip, her husband for moral support, Prince Harry said.
“Regardless of whether my grandfather seems to be doing his own thing, sort of wandering off like a fish down the river, the fact that he’s there – personally, I don’t think that she could do it without him,” said Harry.
The 27 year old Prince was interviewed just before Prince Philip had to undergo an emergency surgery for a blocked coronary artery. This had happened before Christmas. He said his grandmother finds it unbearable to shake the hands of so many people in public engagements without the presence of her husband.
The 85 year old Queen is going to celebrate 60 year on the throne coming Monday. It is very taxing for her to keep up with the schedule of meeting politicians, opening hospitals, greeting members and “Yet she’s carrying on and doing [the visits],” said Harry.
Prince William is very close to her and he and his wife often reach out to the Queen for guidance.
“I think she doesn’t care for celebrity … and she really minds about having privacy in general,” William said.
“I think she’s carved her own way completely. She’s not had a blueprint,” said William. “I think it’s very important to be able to retreat inside and be able to collect one’s thoughts and collect your ideas, and then to move forward.”
