'Queen makes me nervous': Prince Harry reveals he still panics every time he runs into grandmother at Buckingham Palace
Along with behind-the-scenes glimpses of the British royalty, ITV series 'Queen of the World' will also feature footage from Queen Elizabeth's home videos of the family
Meeting Queen Elizabeth can be quite intimidating in real life, especially if you are a 'commoner'. However, one does not expect a similar reaction from Prince Harry, who is not only related to the Queen — being her grandson — but also has spent countless moments in the presence of the British royal.
In a new ITV documentary exploring the royal life title , Prince Harry lets slip some of his wicked sense of humor as he confesses to a group of visitors from the Caribbean that he is still nervous about bumping into the Queen in the corridors of Buckingham Palace.
"You guys have spent way more time in Buckingham Palace than I ever have—and you’ve only been here two weeks. Have you bumped into the Queen yet?" the newly married Prince asks the group of hospitality professionals in the forthcoming documentary that is due release this September.
What follows is a candid glimpse into the grandson-grandmother relationship, as Harry cheekily adds: "If you suddenly bump into her in the corridor, don’t panic. I know you will. We all do!"
Apart from the behind-the-scenes glimpse of the British royalty, the two-part ITV series will also feature Queen's home videos of the family and newlywed royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. In fact, the Duchess of Sussex would be reunited with her wedding dress in scenes from the documentary, right before the Givenchy gown is put on display for a new exhibition.
Amongst the visitors featuring in the documentary are Antigua-based Claudine Jeffrey and Anthony Johnstone-Burt, Master of the Royal Household, according to The Telegraph.
“Our Caribbean scholars are eight fabulous young people. This very much was an attempt to reach out and see what more we can do to involve the Caribbean realms particularly in the royal household, so it’s very, very special," Johnstone-Burt says in the snippet, as Jeffrey goes on to gush about her time in the Buckingham Palace.
“It’s a fun place to work. I say it’s an adventure every day because every day it is always something different," she is quoted as saying in the ITV series.
Jeffrey further adds, “You never find that you are doing the same thing so that’s really amazing because I love a challenge and I don’t like to be bored…to find myself in Buckingham Palace, it is beyond my wildest imaginations.”
'Queen of the World' is set to air on September 25 at 9pm.
