PRINCE HARRY listens to Queen Elizabeth II more than his father Prince Charles because Her Majesty has the ability to “pull everybody into line”, royal author Robert Jobson has revealed.
The royal commentator has spent over a year alongside Prince Charles as part of a new book called Charles at Seventy: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams where he reveals fresh material and exclusive insight into the Royal Family. Speaking to Express.co.uk about Prince Harry’s relationship with his family, Mr Jobson said: “The Queen has got the ability to pull everybody into line, Charles too as well.”

Mr Jobson said Harry would be “certain” to listen to the Queen if she called him in for a chat.
The royal author also revealed that Prince Harry and Prince William are similar to Princess Diana in that they are both “hotheaded” and “can be difficult”.
Mr Jobson said: “I think that there are some similarities to Diana. Both William and Harry can be a bit hotheaded, there’s no doubt about that.
“They can be a bit difficult and Diana on many occasions had been quite difficult for the Prince to deal with in that marriage.
“But I don’t really focus too much on the marriage because the book is all about him.”
The royal expert said that “on the whole” the both Harry and William “get on ok” with Prince Charles and “don’t live in each other’s pockets”.
In his new book, Mr Jobson said that the Royal Wedding preparations were so stressful that Prince Harry became “petulant and short-tempered” with members of staff.
Mr Jobson also said Meghan Markle and Prince Charles are known to have a close bond after the Prince of Wales walked the former actress down the aisle at the Royal Wedding in May after her own father was unable to attend the ceremony.
The royal commentator revealed how Meghan’s dysfunctional family has been widely accepted by the Royal Family.
Mr Jobson, who has nearly 30 years of experience reporting on the monarchy, said: “The arrival of Meghan Markle, who has got her own issues and dysfunctional family, probably helped them realise that not everybody is perfect and you have to be accepting of other people’s issues and I think that that is what is probably helped.”
Meghan’s family were thrust into the spotlight earlier this year in the run up to the Royal Wedding.
Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland was the bride’s only relative to attend her big day.
Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father, pulled out of the wedding just days before due to health reasons.
Other members of Meghan’s family, including her half-sister Samantha Markle, did not receive an invitation, which promoted their angry public outbursts.
