Dan Wootton urges Prince Harry to drop plans and visit the Queen at Balmoral: ‘If he had a shred of dignity’

Dan Wootton has urged Prince Harry to drop an event on Thursday in order to visit the Queen at Balmoral Castle.

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are currently in the UK as they continue their European trip to attend several charity events.

While the Queen postponed her Privy Council meeting scheduled for Wednesday after being advised by royal doctors to rest, Buckingham Palace has said.

The 96-year-old monarch’s latest setback will raise fresh fears for her health the day after she was pictured in a historic audience with Liz Truss, as she appointed her as the new Prime Minister.

And speaking ahead of the Sussexes latest event on Thursday, Dan has urged Harry to ditch his speech at the WellChild Awards in favour of going to see Her Majesty.

Dan said on GB News Dan Wootton Tonight: “They are currently at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor before their next engagement tomorrow.

“Yesterday thought they were in Dusseldorf, Germany promoting the Invictus Games 2023 and were seen on a walkabout outside the town hall chatting and taking selfies with onlookers, something they would struggle to do in Britain given they are generally greeted by booing crowds these days.

“And I’m sorry but for two people who claim to despise the trappings and traditions of the monarchy, all of this screams a royal tour.”

He later added: “The issue for me is that the Queen tonight is ill, she is unable to work.

“Harry and Meghan are making this all about themselves, I actually think if Harry had a shred of dignity he would drop this event tomorrow, he would leave Frogmore Cottage and he will go to see the Queen at Balmoral.”

Speaking earlier on Wednesday, a Palace spokesman said: “After a full day yesterday, Her Majesty has this afternoon accepted doctors’ advice to rest.

“This means that the Privy Council meeting that had been due to take place this evening will be rearranged.”

The Queen remains at Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire and the latest advice does not involve a hospital stay.
