Prince Harry ‘went into panic mode’ after learning of Queen’s hospitalisation

Prince Harry reportedly went into "panic mode" after finding out that the Queen spent a night in hospital after cancelling her Northern Ireland trip last week.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 95, stayed in an unnamed hospital "for some preliminary investigations" on Wednesday 20 October, which marked her first overnight stay in eight years.

Now, a source has claimed 37 year old Prince Harry felt "helpless" over being in California with his wife Meghan Markle, 40, and their two children Archie, two, and baby daughter Lilibet, after hearing the news.

“He felt helpless being 5,000 miles away in Montecito and has been checking-in non-stop with her,” the insider told US Weekly.

They went on to explain how Harry still “feels guilty about not saying goodbye” to his late grandfather Prince Philip in person before he passed away at the age of 99 on 9 April.

The source continued: "[He] would never forgive himself if the same thing happened with his beloved grandmother.”

They added that Prince Harry is planning to go back home to the UK for Christmas with Meghan, "if not before so that she can finally get to meet Lilibet and see Archie again.”

OK! Online has approached Harry's representatives for further comment.

Her Majesty had no choice but to cancel her two-day trip to Northern Ireland after doctors instructed her to rest.

At the time of her hospitalisation, Buckingham Palace issued a statement, which read: "Following medical advice to rest for a few days, The Queen attended hospital on Wednesday afternoon for some preliminary investigations, returning to Windsor Castle at lunchtime today, and remains in good spirits."

News of the monarch's changing plans was announced by Royal editor of the Daily Mail, Rebecca English, prior to this as she tweeted a statement, which read: "The Queen has reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest for the next few days.

"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.

"The Queen sends her warmest good wishes to the people of Northern Ireland, and looks forward to visiting in the future."

However, it appears she's on the mend as she carried out her first royal engagement on Tuesday 26 October with a virtual audience at Windsor Castle.
