Prince Harry would panic when he bumped into The Queen at Buckingham Palace – The Mirror

Speaking in a documentary, Prince Harry previously shared an incredibly relatable comment about what it’s really like to bump into Her Majesty in the halls of Buckingham Palace.

The prospect of bumping into the Queen, while unfathomable for most, would surely fill many people with anxiety.

Even if we had plenty of time to prepare ourselves, we’d still be pretty nervous about breaking royal protocol, doing something to offend her or just looking downright foolish.

And it seems even her own relatives might still feel this way from time to time.

In a clip from a 2018 documentary about the Queen’s role as head of the commonwealth, Prince Harry joked about feeling a sense of “panic” when he bumped into his grandmother in the hallways of Buckingham Palace.

His hilarious answer on the subject surprised many at the time it aired – because it’s just so relatable.

In the HBO documentary, Queen of the World, Harry is shown addressing a group of hospitality professionals from the Caribbean who are staying at the palace, reports The Express.

The 36-year-old prince offered the group some advice and went on to reveal that even he still “panics” when he sees the Queen, despite being related to her.

He said: “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?

“If you suddenly bump into her in the corridor, don’t panic.

“I know you will. We all do!”

The pressure likely came from his thinking of the Queen as his “boss”, which he has also previously discussed.

During the BBC’s Elizabeth At 90 tribute documentary, which aired in 2016, he explained how it’s difficult to just think of the monarch as his gran.

He added: “I still view her more as the Queen than my grandmother.”

Harry’s advice not to panic must have worked though, as one of the hospitality workers he spoke to claims to have had lots of “fun” at the palace.

Claudine Jeffrey from Antigua described the Royal household as a “fun place to work”.

He said: “I say it’s an adventure every day because every day it is always something different.

“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.”
