Despite everything that has happened over the past year, Queen Elizabeth is still not ready to give up on her grandson Prince Harry.
Angela Levin, Harry’s royal biographer, took to social media this week to say that the royal family is very worried about Prince Harry’s mental state, which is why she thinks they won’t be “slamming the door” in his face any time soon.
“My view is that Harry’s family in London are very worried about his mental health,” Levin tweeted in response to another person who commented that it was “too late” to bring Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle back into the royal family.
“[They] think slamming the royal door in his face could have devastating consequences,” Levin added.

This comes after sources told Page Six that Harry and Meghan would “absolutely” be invited to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, as they won’t be “iced out” from the celebration of the Queen’s seventieth year on the throne next year.
“Of course they’re invited, it’s a family event!” said one insider who pointed out that both Harry and his brother Prince William wore their Jubilee medals at the Prince Philip’s funeral in April. Another source added that “so much” can happen in a year, echoing that the family will want to see Harry and Meghan’s son, Archie, and their new baby girl.
This comes three months after Meghan claimed in a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey that she was not given any support by the royal family after marrying Harry.
“There was no guidance,” she said. “Unlike what you see in the movies, there’s no class on how to speak, how to cross your legs, how to be royal. That was not offered to me. Even down to the National Anthem – no one thought to say ‘oh you’re American, you’re not gonna know that.’ So that’s me late at night Googling it.”
Meghan went on to make claims about the royal family and her 2 year-old son Archie.
“They didn’t want him to be a prince or princess, not knowing what the gender would be, which would be different from protocol, and said that he wasn’t going to receive security,” she said. “In those months when I was pregnant we have in tandem the conversation of, you won’t be given security, not gonna be given a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.”
“The most important title I will ever have is Mom but the idea of our son not being safe and also the idea of the first member of color in this family not being titled in the same way that other grandchildren would be was,” she added.
Buckingham Palace has disputed many of the claims Meghan made.
