In an interview for an upcoming TV documentary to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, Prince Harry said that he views her “more as the queen rather than my grandmother,” Express reported. He added that he has always considered the queen as his “boss” and only “occasionally” considers her as his grandmother.
“You have this huge amount of respect for your boss and I always view her as my boss,” Harry explained.
Harry is just one of the six members of the royal family who were interviewed for the documentary. Apart from revealing how he views his grandmother, Harry also confessed that he still has to pinch himself when he meets the queen during family gatherings, the report said.
Aside from interviews with select members of the royal family, the documentary will also feature an interesting look at the queen’s life. She recently became the longest reigning monarch in Britain. However, the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, has shared in an interview for the upcoming documentary that the queen’s latest distinction comes with a “very double-edged sword.” Anne explained that the queen received that honor only because of her father’s early death.
“So you know for her that’s a very mixed blessing, and you know it’s a record that she would much rather not have been able to pass,” Anne said.
Meanwhile, Prince William also called his grandmother his boss. The Duke of Cambridge made the comment in his speech during a recent New Delhi reception held in honor of the queen’s upcoming birthday, according to Deccan Chronicle. "She might be the grandmother but she is the boss," he said.
The upcoming TV special titled “Elizabeth At 90 — A Family Tribute” will air on BBC 1 on the queen’s birthday on April 21.
