Prince Harry’s comments about the Queen are part of the family’s habit of trying to “take advantage” of the Queen in her later years, according to a royal expert.

After Prince Andrew used his closeness to the Queen in an attempt to rehabilitate his image, Richard Eden, editor of the Daily Mail’s memoir, said it appeared Harry’s “calculated” comments in his interview with NBC show an attempt to do the same.

After Prince Andrew used his closeness to the Queen (pictured) to try to rehabilitate his image, Richard Eden, the Daily Mail’s memoir editor, said it appeared Harry’s “calculated” comments in his interview with NBC show an attempt to do the same.

“The most interesting thing is that he avoids talking about William and Charles,” she says.
