He may be one of the most famous royal figures in the world but even Prince Harry gets nervous around Queen Elizabeth.

The 34-year-old prince, who will be visiting Australia with Meghan Markle next month, might be the Queen’s grandson, but it seems even he gets jitters when she walks his way in Buckingham Palace.

Prince Harry is set to appear in a new documentary, called Queen of the World, where he’s set to speak about the work his grandmother has done over her 65-year reign.

And he reportedly let slip one of the secrets from inside the palace walls, when he revealed that the monarch’s presence makes everyone stop in their tracks.

“You guys have spent way more time in Buckingham Palace than I ever have – and you’ve only been here two weeks,” he joking says in the clip, according to The Telegraph.

“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.”

While Prince Harry is clearly joking, it’s no secret that he is extremely respectful of his grandmother and applauds her for everything she’s done.

She welcomed his new bride, Meghan Markle, into the royal family with open arms, despite the fact that it was once frowned upon for a member of the Windsor clam to marry somebody who has already been divorced.

Indeed, the Queen showed Prince Harry and the rest of the world just how much she likes Meghan when she embarked on a solo outing to Chester with the Duchess of Sussex just after their May 19th wedding.

And it’s also believed that Meghan will also take part in the Queen of the World documentary, where she will talk to camera about her experiences with the Queen.

Speaking about the Queen in their official BBC interview after their engagement, Meghan called the 92-year-old an ‘amazing woman’.

“To be able to meet her through his lens, not just with his honor and respect for her as the monarch, but the love that he has for her as his grandmother, all of those layers have been so important for me,” Meghan said.

“So that when I met her I had such a deep understanding and of course incredible respect for being able to have that time with her.

“And we’ve had a really – she’s – she’s an incredible woman.”
