Prince Harry is being urged by royal fans to fly to the UK to visit his grandmother after it was reported that she was rushed to the hospital earlier this month and subsequently pulled out of the COP26 Climate change summit on Tuesday, October 26, following medical advice.

Queen Elizabeth II, 95, also canceled her trip to Northern Ireland earlier this month after doctors suggested she take it easy. “The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement on October 20. “Her Majesty is in good spirits and is disappointed that she will no longer be able to visit Northern Ireland, where she had been due to undertake a series of engagements today and tomorrow.”

A day later, royal reporter Omid Scobie revealed that the Queen spent the night in hospital on October 20. About her brief stay on October 21, the Palace explained that the monarch was given “medical advice to rest for a few days” and underwent “preliminary investigations” while there.

“The queen is finally acknowledging that she won’t be around forever and needs to slowdown,” a source told Us Weekly, as she finally starts passing some responsibilities down the line. “She’s not a quitter and will continue working but is handing over of some of her duties to Prince Charles and Prince William and is preparing them to take over.”

Apparently, after learning about his grandmother's condition, Prince Harry went into “panic mode." “He felt helpless being 5,000 miles away in Montecito, [California,] and has been checking-in non-stop with her,” an insider told Us Weekly.

The 37-year-old prince still “feels guilty about not saying goodbye” in person to his grandfather Prince Philip before his death in April after relocating to the US with wife Meghan Markle in March 2020. “[He] would never forgive himself if the same thing happened with his beloved grandmother,” the insider said, noting that Harry is “hoping to go back home for Christmas with Meghan, if not before so that she can finally get to meet [her great granddaughter] Lilibet and see [great grandson] Archie again.”

Soon after the report came out, an overwhelming number of royal fans urged the Duke of Sussex to get on a flight immediately and go visit the queen. "Really. Like when they wanted to rush back for Philip? Preferring to record Oprah to trash the Royal family instead," one of them said, while another noted, "If #MeghanMarkle’s husband is so guilty and worried, he can hop on a plane and visit #QueenElizabeth. Right now. #PrinceHarry." A third commented, "Harry and Meghan go visit the Queen take Archie and his sister, let her see her great-grandchildren and you Harry, ok, make your peace hold her hand. The Queens restful sleep is soon. Go now."

The next remarked, "You'd think the ungrateful lying hypocrite #PrinceHarry would have been here already to visit his Grandmother already but #MeghanMarkle hasn't given her permission for him to do so!" A commenter tweeted, "@RoyalFamily I urge Prince Harry to fly to London, England to visit his grandmother ASAP. Bring a personal video of his new baby to show to The Queen."

One more quipped, "The Queen hasn't been feeling well since her husband Prince Philip sadly died . This is were Harry And Meghan can do a good deed for the day. Unless they have already done it in secret. Go visit your Nan." A person reacted with, "@MeghanPharry Here’s an idea. Get on a plane, with your kids. Head for Windsor. No film crew, no publicity. Just visit The Queen, while you still can. She’s Harry’s grandmother and she’s 95. This is not about you two."
