Prince Harry claims the Queen invited him to stay at the Sandringham estate during Megxit negotiations – before cancelling the visit.

The Duke of Sussex said he got a got a message from Her Majesty’s private secretary saying she was “busy all week”.

In another exclusive clip, Harry said he had been suddenly told he was no longer invited to spend time with the Queen at Sandringham in January 2020.

Harry said the Queen had told him to come and see her there after he and Meghan arrived back in the UK from Canada.

He said: "My grandmother had said 'the moment you land, come up to Sandringham, we'd love to have a chat, come for tea, why don't you stay for dinner because it's going to be a long drive and you're going to be exhausted?"'

He said "the moment we landed in the UK" he got a message from his private secretary at the time, passing on a message from the Queen's private secretary.

He said it was "basically saying 'please pass on to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex that he cannot come to Norfolk. The Queen is busy, she's busy all week'."

Oprah said: "After she'd just invited to you?"

Harry replied: "She'd just invited me.'The Queen is busy, she's busy all week, do not come up here'."

Harry said he then rang the Queen from Frogmore cottage and she said: "Yes, there's something in my diary that I didn't know that I had."

He said he asked about the rest of the week, and his grandmother had replied that she was busy then too.

He told Winfrey: "I didn't want to push because I kind of knew what was going on."

The chat show host asked: "Doesn't the Queen get to do what the Queen wants to do?"

Harry replied: "When you're head of the firm there is people around you that give you advice. And what has also made me really sad is some of that advice has been really bad."
